Did u hit the fuel shut off button to discharge the system? if you did plug it back in or push the button down. pump is electric so it doesnt need primed. also try the fuel filter. it may need replacing as well

Tries to turnover but wont start


Check to see if you're getting spark at the plugs. If not, try changing the ignition module. If that doesn't fix it, then you possibly have a fuel delivery problem. Check the pressure at the fuel rail. If it's too low, or even non-existent, then replace the fuel pump (mounted inside the fuel tank). Be sure to replace the pump strainer and fuel filter, too, if you change the pump

I have a 2001 ford taurus and it ran out of gas. It wont start after i put gas in it


  • Assuming you put enough gas in the tank to turn the car over (2 gallons is a good start) and assuming the gas cap is on good and tight then it sounds like in drying up the tank you put all the containments sitting at the bottom of your gas tank into the fuel pump sock and it is now clogged. Changing the fuel pump is that fix.
  • You may want to check the fuel filter too first before the whole dropping the gas tank to get to the fuel pump scene. Its possible the fuel filter has got really clogged and will not let fuel pass. They can go just like that if it has been several thousand miles since last changing it. The fuel filter for this vehicle is on the passenger side rail, about midway, on the undercarriage of the car. The fuel line coming from the fuel pump leads right to it.
  • Of course check the battery connections too.

2004 F-150 water in gas tank. Replaced fuel filter twice and added additives to the gas. Check engine light still and still runs rough when idling and will stop running at times; however it starts...


you might have to clean the tank because the pump might have problems as well the injectors could be clogged or it wasnt only water in gas if you are sure no sugar was added in tank i would check the fuel pump just the same if it is easy to remove

Wont start. need to know how to get to fuel pump?


The fuel pump is located inside the tank. Getting to it to replace it will require the tank to be removed. The pump is generally located toward the top of the fuel tank.

I hope this is enough to get you started! :)

My truck doesnt feel like it is getting enough fuel and not muck power just had the fuel pump replaced but wasnt much help


First thing I would check is see if they crimped a fuel line when they reinstalled the fuel tank. I have seen this happen many times when they put the tank back into position they do not get the fuel lines put back in the same place. This cuts the fuel flow to the engine. Would also check the fuel filter as sometimes people do not clean out the tank when they have it down and end up with dirt in the tank which will clog the fuel filter.

I have a 1996 Mercury Villager (Canadian version) with 60 K miles. Sometimes when starting, the engine turns but it wont start. When this situation occurs, I usually try to start again while pressing on...


I would definitely consider the fuel pump. I had long turnover times before starting for years, but even worse was in hot weather it would just stall while driving. Sometimes it would only idle, but not run if you pressed the gas very far. Park it for 20-30 minutes and it would run again without another problem for weeks. Dealers and mechanics kept replacing other things like ignition coils and distributors. After a conversation where someone said they had the same problem, but only when they had less than half a tank of fuel, I knew it was the pump. I replaced it myself and all problems went away.
The fuel leaks back down to the tank and air gets in the lines. Then the pump is slow to build pressure up again. If you turn the key on, but not start, wait 45 seconds, off, on again but not start, wait again, now start it will take a little less time to start, less battery drain, until you fix the problem.
You may not have the heat problem in Canada. But here in Georgia it gets hot enough that if the fuel tank is low and the pump has this problem, it will overheat and shut down till it cools. A full tank helps it keep the pressure up and serves to cool the pump.
