Is the theft light flashing?

If it is than the pump will run but the computer will shut down the injectors. The car will run if poor gas in the throttle body as you described.

If the theft light is not on I would check for power to the injectors and injector pulse.

Why is it not getting fuel?


What make vehicle do you have ? Some makes incorporate a FPDM - fuel pump driver module . Fords have a inertia fuel cut off switch. I suggest you go to youtube an check out some basic electrical trouble shooting videos an then go to www.bbbind.com for a wiring diagram an check the fuel pump electrical circuit . Here is a video testing a GM fuel pump circuit . just for instance . GM Fuel Pump Relay Testing If you want to work on modern vehicles you really need to lean basic testing procedures . Not just replacing parts.

What would prevent the fuel from being injected into cylinders from fuel rail i get fuel from tank up to fuel rails but will only start and stay running if i put gas straight into the throttle body


I would check fuses first because I found that nine out of ten times with me anyway that was the issue, or you can contact a dealer that sells your model and type of car, they might be able to give you some insight on your issue.

2000 1500 Sierra will not stay running step on gas act like its running out of gas. Popped top fuel line gas came poured outbut didn't pump out when i rolled the engine over. Got underneath the fuel cell...


Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

1992 chevy astro van getting fire but not fuel stalled while driving replaced fuel pump when we pour gas into the intake the engine will fire but not getting gas


Did you change the filter? Can you hear the pump cut in for a few seconds when you first turn the key the "run" position? If you can'r hear it, you may want to check fuses and power wires to the pump.

I ran out of gas in a 1997 Chevy Blazer, put gas in, but still won't start.


The fuel filter may be to dirty to let the gas flow through and will need to be replaced, or most common when you run out of gas is the fuel pump will burn it self out. The fuel in the tank will keep the fuel pump cooled and will keep it from burning out, if you ran it out of gas. The pump may have burn out and will need to be replaced. Check the fuse first and hope the fuse blown due to the extra amp drown from the pump running without fuel. If the fuse is good, then check to see if you can hear the fuel pump start up when you turn the ignition key to the run position. Note the fuel pump will only energize the fuel line for 5 seconds, so you need to listen for the pump to turn on right away. The other thing too, is you can check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, there should be 62 to 65 PSI when energizing the fuel line and will drop around 5 PSI when the engine is running. Make sure you do not try to start the engine by pouring gas down the throttle body, it been know for the gas to catch fire in the intake manifold and burn up the fuel injector system which is very costly. Start with the simple and check the fuses and fuel pump, then replace the fuel filter. At worst, your going to have to replace the fuel pump by dropping the gas tank and don't forget to replace the wire harness from the fuel pump to the frame. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to know you got your Blazer running again soon.

IS THERE A FUSE THAT ALLOW GAS TO SPRAY THROUGH


Your vehicle doesn't have a carburetor. What you poured gas into was the throttle body. Does it stay running once it starts? You really should check the fuel pressure to be sure but not everyone has a gauge. Changing the fuel filter would definitely be a good start. If that doesn't do it, check the fuses for the fuel pump and check the fuel pump relay. If they check out make sure the power is actually getting to the fuel pump, check the ground wire of course also. If you have good power and ground at the pump and no fuel you will have to replace the pump most likely.

Is not getting enough gas to start


your fuel injector might be clogged, try fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank..go to 1/4 tank and pour two in. it can also work for your fuel pump. if it still occurs, then replace the filter....depending on how old the car is and if it is worth it, a new fuel pump can be costly in labor unless you know somebody

Cannot get 1987 chevy van 20 to keep running... stalls out


Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.
