My car seems to have some sort of glitch in the fuel system. periodically the car just wont start because it isn't getting fuel pump changed relay replaced and it still happens without warning.


How do you know it's not getting fuel ? Did you use a fuel pressure gauge an test pressure ? You replace fuel pump or just fuel pump relay ? Watch this video on testing GM fuel pump electrical circuit ! GM Fuel Pump Relay Testing

My 2000 Mitsubishi mirage de 1.8ltr ran out of gas i have added more gas now it wont start.


when my car did the same thing, I found out it was my fuel pump, which is used to being in liquid and therefore had dried up and then seized up. you can test it by disconnecting the fuel line from the tank to the engine and pouring a small amount of gas into the line...if it starts up or even turns over, then you know that it is the pump...good luck

I have a 1997 caillac catera i just replaced the feul pump and both fuel pump relays.but im not getting any power to the pump


Who is doing this work ?

Can not see the relays needing to be replaced
Did you even test them,if not why replace them?

Why the fuel pump?
Was that tested or it just seized up mechanically
or stopped electrically?

Before you can continue, you need a wiring diagram,
to learn the fuel pump circuit

When you have that down,you will have picked test
points for your volt meter & live voltage drop tests, as
well as ground side testing

You will also see on the print what else in the vehicles
systems, may have to be complete, in order for the fuel
pump relay to come on

You can power the pump direct from the relay socket,
if you read the wiring diagram & have no other wiring
problems from there to the pump & ground

My car doesn't stay started it will run a little bit then quit while in the process of driving? When I let it sit for a min before starting it again it will turn on and I am able to drive a little way


Go with failed fuel pump, until you know how to test it.

It is seizing up mechanically or electrically

Check things HOW?

You need fuel pressure gauge,volt meter,oscilloscope
& such, to do testing,as well as wiring diagrams

Wont stay running while driving


The fuel pumps on the 1999 burbs and rrucks have a tendency to seize when the tank is low on fuel and the outside temperatures are above 90. I fought this for years to find this fact. Add cold fuel to the tank when this happens and see if you have a "sensitive " pump. After replacement with newrer aftermarket pump never had problem again. You will need to drop the fuel tank to change the pump and special tools to release the fuel lines connector. Good luck!

I got a 88 gmc jimmy 2.8L just replaced the starter and now it wont start. bthe fuel pump wont turn on and the ecmb fuse is still good. where else should i check for a problem before replacing the fuel...


if you have someone try to start the car while you hit the gas tank in the centre of the fuel tank and it starts then the fuel pump is no good.note this doesn`t always work due to how bad the pump is seized.if you look for the fuel pump feed wire under the hood,its a green wire with a black plastic connector and with some one again trying to start the car and with a test light connected to the connector it should light up.if it does then the pump is no good.another way is to have someone listen at the fuel tank and feed power to this same wire if the pump is working then they should hear the pump run,they may have to listen at the filler neck with the gas cap off to see if they can hear it run.

I HAVE A AUDI A6 2.8 PETROL MANUAL. I RECENTLY RAN OUT OF PETROL AND NOW EVEN AFTER PUTTING 15 LITRES IN THE TANK IT STILL WONT START


try quick start to get it started. Alot of times when you run out of fuel the pump looses its prime. If you cant get it started you may of overheated the fuel pump by allowing it to run dry. Try smacking the gas tank hard a few times, this sometimes frees up the pump if its stuck.

My car ran out of gas and now it wont start after i filled it up


MANY TIMES WHEN YOU RUHN OUT OF GAS IT SEIZES UP THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP, THE REASON? THE FUEL PUMP IS VERY SMALL IT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE GAS TANK, IT IS ABLE TO DO ITS JOB BECAUSE IT IS COOLED BY THE GAS IT RUNS IN, IF YOU RUN VERY LOW ON FUEL OR OUT OF GAS THE FUEL PUMP BEARINGS OVERHEAT AND SEIZE UP AND YOU HAVE TO REPLACE IT.

1999 Suburban turns over but engine doesn't start...


First, make sure they put oil back in the crankcase. Your motor may be seized. Next, we need to know if the fuel filter has ever been changed. If not, it's probably clogged and it will burn up the fuel pump if you continue to try to force gas into the injectors.
