Fuel shut off switch location on a 74 alfa romeo spider 200


Does the fuel pump run? The inertia switch, if tripped will prevent the fuel pump from running. If the pump runs but the car doesn't start than it's likely a problem with the fuel pressure regulator or the bypass internal to the pump.

Fuel wont stay pressurised in system if it sits for long time


check your fuel pressure regulator if is working or not. Just do a small and easy test about it. Do use a clamp and close the return fuel hose to tank ,start the car let it run for few minutes and switch it off. leave it for the same time you already did and start it again. If it starts easy then you prove that the pressure reguatort.

Could be a bad pressure switch located on the accumulator. With the car turned off try unplugging the connector and run a wire across. Start the car and turn on the a/c. If it starts to work shut the car down and replace the switch.

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

1992 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme fuel system failures. A shop replaced the in-tank fuel pump and the engine mounted fuel pressure regulator but the car dies and wont start just like before those procedures.


Find the oil pressure switch on the side of the engine block. unplug the connector. Using a piece of wire or a paper clip, jump the connector, thereby bypassing the pressure switch. Start the car and see if it still dies. If it stays running and restarts ok, then you've got a bad oil pressure switch or low oil pressure which will stoop the injectors from firing. If none of this did any good, put the pressure switch connector back the way it was. My next line of thought would be the MAP sensor. If someone hasn't already done so, retrieve the trouble codes from the computer. That would be a big help in diagnosing the problem. If you need help getting the codes, I can try to explain it. One last thought. There should be a fuel pump relay. That relay could be shutting down, then resetting itself when the ignition is turned off. Replace the relay before you try the jumper wire.

I have a 1988 Chevy K2500, V8-350 cu. in with TBI. I have fire, but there is no fire running to the fuel pump. There is a new fuel pump relay installed and the fuse is also good. Truck ran fine, then...


Oil pressure switch puts power to the pump after it is started.

Pumps also tend to loose their ground with age. I often splice in a new ground at the pump to eliminate that problem area.

Need some votes, thanks

My 95 tahoe starts but dont stay on. Fuel wont stay pumping from tbi. Just swapped a motor from 80's camaro. Was running real good in box chevy perfect. Now fuel wont stay flowing out of injectors. Already...


did you install the oil pressure switch origional to the tahoe? The tahoe uses a low oil pressure shutdown, instead of an inertia switch to shut off the fuel pump in the event of an accident. If the pressure circuit does not close within 3 seconds after the engine starts the fuel pump shuts off. This is in case the truck is on its side or upside down the pump will shut off.

Replaced fuel pump & still car wont start on 97 olds 88


The fuel pump most likely is not the problem,replace the crankshaft sensor,it tells the computer to pulse the injectors,and the spark.

Fuel leak, car will not stay started


Please fix the fuel leak before anything else!! The fuel pressure is definitely being lowered by the leak and the leak itself is a serious fire hazard. If the fuel pressure is too low, the engine will starve and shut off.
