Hi. Have you change the fuel pump relay?
If not change the relay, The original number is, RZ0088.
In the fuse box below the steering column. Is there a fuse for fuel pump.
The relay is a common problem for this cars.

    I had the same problem with my Honda Accord Exi 1990 - it would crank over but not start. When I identified that it wasn't getting fuel, I changed the fuel filter but it still wouldn't start. I thought I would have to change the fuel pump but when I supplied power directly to the fuel pump it was still working. Eventually found the relay (RZ0088) under steering column - wish I would have read guill's comment first locating it under steering column! LESSON - don't change fuel pump until you've checked the relay (and filter). My problem with engine cranking but not starting was intermittent and it would usually start eventually until it got so bad the battery would go flat trying to start. If engine won't start listen for the relay to "click" first when you switch the ignition to the On position - otherwise you'll just end up with a flat battery. LESSON 2 - No click from relay, no start!

Make sure the fuel filter wasn't installed backwards...if it is correct..then replace the fuel pump..just because it works,doesn't mean it's strong enough to deliver fuel..best of luck

1991 Miata Starting problem


find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad

We have a 97 chevy lumina that had water in the gas and we need to know where the fuel pump reset button is


There is no reset button for an overload situation on the fuel pump. The only reset is for when the vehicle gets into an accident, which activates on impact. So, I don't think this is what you are looking for. I would suggest looking at the fuse panel, which would be located in the engine compartment and it should be labeled. If this is not your problem, then you probably have a problem with the fuel pump itself or the fuel filter is plugged with water. The fuel filters do not like water, so by purging the gas through the bleeder valve you will be putting all that water into the fuel filter. I would suggest removing the fuel filter and purge the fuel/water at that location. You should replace the filter anyway, so I would remove it and see if the pump still works.

I would also suggest putting a couple of bottles of "Heat" or similar products in the tank, because you will not be able to get everything out.

Good luck....

My 2001 GMC Sierra just made a 600 mile trip. The next morning, the truck wouldn't start (full tank of gas). Replaced the fuel filter, banged on the gas tank. Tried to start the engine again, engine...


When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.

I replaced the battery, how do I reset the computer, its not getting fuel?


Thanks for choosing FixYa Michelle and welcome to the site. Anytime the battery is off, the computer resets automatically. Since you are not getting fuel to the engine, you need to make sure that the fuel pump is working. Check your fuel pump fuse and relay. Also, check the reset button if you have one. You should be able to hear the pump kick on when you first turn the key on. You should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't, check the fuse/relay. Check the reset button if you have one. I am not sure if you do or not Michelle. They are usually in the glove box if you do. If you check all them and the pump still doesn't work, change it. Now, you need to check your fuel filter as well. It may be clogged. If not, check your gas lines. Make sure that none of them are damaged. If not, the only thing left to check is your fuel injectors. That is your complete fuel system there. Check the fuel pump, fuel filter, gas lines, and the fuel injectors. If you are not getting gas, it is one of them.

My 1996 dodge neon is not getting any fuel to the system. theres gas in the car a brand new fuel pump and filter. what could be wrong?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Fuel is pumped out of the tank by the fuel pump. It then goes to the fuel filter. Then, it goes through the gas lines to the injectors and engine. You need to scan your gas lines and make sure they are not damaged or clogged. If the lines are ok, you need to check your injectors. Check your fuel pump fuse/relays and reset button, if equipped. I am guessing the car will not start? Thanks for using FixYa.

Not getting gas


You need to make sure your fuel pump is working. You should hear kick on after you turn the key for a second or two. The fuel goes from the pump to the filter, from the filter to the gas lines, from the lines to the engine and injectors. Make sure the filter is not clogged. Make sure none of your lines are pinched. Check for fuel to the injectors. Check your fuel pump fuse/relay and reset button, if equipped.

Car is not getting gas to motor even after new fuel filter is installed


If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are:
- Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel.
- Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.

Hope it helps.
