Where is the fuel pump relay switch on a 1988 Ford Crown Victoria 5.0


The computer controls the injection of the fuel. If you look at the wiring diagram you will note the bottom 4 pins that are the negative and positive to the left and right injection. Atleast on my 1991 it is .Could be the ecm or computer is sending a false signal or not sending one at all. A sign of this is the fuel pump in the gas tank can be heard and will continue to run as if pressure in the fuel system is not building. Tthe truck want crank as if no fuel. When starter fluid is injected into the Throttle body the egine will start and run untill fluid is used up. It will keep running as long as fluid is added.

Fuel pump continuously runs no start


have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for fuel pressure regulator faulty and allowing the fuel to continually back to the tank and not having pressure in the manifold for the injector operation

Cranks but wont start


Likely a fuel delivery problem.

Check the filter, as it may be clogged and due for replacement. To test for fuel delivery, open your airbox and spray some starter fluid (purified ether, usually) down into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it fires up and runs for a few seconds but won't run without spraying the starter fluid, then you know you've got spark and compression. If that's the case, there could be any number of potential issues: throttle position sensor (not very common, but it does happen), fuel injectors clogged (common if you use low-grade fuel), fuel filter/strainer clogged (filters should be replaced every 30k miles or so, on average), fuel pump failure (you should hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when you crank the engine).

If the starter fluid doesn't help, then the problem is no spark. Check each plug/cable for fouling.

I have a 96 olds delta, start it up and it wont stay started. could it be the fuel pump?


Yes, it could be... Remove the air cleaner hose and spray WD40 or starting fluid in the hose that goes to the engine...Have someone start the vehicle.. Spray short bursts into the hose while car runs.. If it continues to run while you are spraying and then stops when you stop.. you probably do have a fuel issue.. Hope this helps..

Turns over and over can hear fuel pump come on will start with starting fluid and runs great but when shut off for a little while wont start again only with starting fluid


If the starting fluid works then you have a fuel pump or a fuel pump relay issue. The fuel pump relay allows the pump to come on for about 2 secs and prime the fuel system. Once the engine starts then the power to the fuel pump runs through the oil pressure circuit.
If the car starts on starting fluid and then continues to run... I would lean toward a fuel pump relay issue. Hope this helps, Good Luck!

My 98 mustang has what seems to be good crank but wont start, it will start and run good if i spay starter fluid in it. this problem comes and gose from one day to the next. what do you thin?


if it runs when spraying starting fluid in it, then the most likely problem is no fuel getting to engine. check or replace fuel filter, check the fuel pump fuse and relay it may have blown. if not that see if fuel pump is working. to check pump--- have someone turn car to on, while you feel for vibration at fuel tank under car. a fuel pump only comes on for a few seconds to get the fuel to engine. but when started it runs continuously. have a good day !!

1995 volkswagen passat vr6 wont start the injectors are getting fuel but its not getting fuel to the engine. The injectors are getting spark and the fuel pressure is good.


if it fires then dies, you have to reset the alarm system with the key/remotes???otherwise you need to plug in the diagnostic computer(saves hours of "fun")

I have a toyota 4runner that has a problem starting. I sprayed starting fluid in the throttle body and it would start and continue to run. Now it will start and will not stay running. Does this mean I need...


Yes, it sounds like the that there is no fuel getting to the motor. The fuel filter is the first place to start. Then you can move on to the pump. Sometimes if the pump wont start you can get it going temporarily by hitting the bottom of the fuel tank with a mallet.

Try using some starting fluid in the intake pickup; continue spraying while someone starts the car. If the car starts up, the fuel pump has gone bad.

Does a fuel pump continue to pump fuel with ignition on when the fuel line is diconected from fuel filter The car wont start no codes found it has done this a few times this year it runs fine when running...


you have a bad fuel pump it's in the tank and only comes on in these conditions.
1. ignition switch turned to the run position turns on for two seconds.
2. same as above but when engine starts pump continues to run as long as engine runs. and the safety switch for blow out prevention has not been tripped.

Your problem is the fuel pump and fuel sock and the check valve in the pump. only one way to be sure and that's pressure testing. You hook up gage to fuel rail turn the ignition key to the run position look at pressure should read 40 to 50 psi and should hold for 1 minute, if you drop 5 pounds in one minute pump is bad and even if it started they could verify that the check valve is not holding pressure.
This is caused by the life of the pump by using gas with ethonal in it and your car was not designed for it, so it damages the pump and injectors and destroys the filter in the pump.
