Posted on Mar 11, 2011

  • CHRISTY YOST Mar 11, 2011

    I have scoured the owners manual. I've pulled fuses, tinkered around, even dropped the tank numerous time. When I turn the key, but not try to start it...I can hear the fuel pump kick on briefly. Just doesn't make it to my engine :(

My 2001 Chevy Malibu won't start.. in September if


sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Where is the carburetor on my 93 mercury topaz?


There isn't a carberator on your 93 mercury topaz. It is new enough to have electronic fuel injection (EFI).
When you say it wont crank, does that mean the starter wont turn the engined over? Or do you mean it wont start?
If the starter turns the engine and it wont start here's a trick that might work. Turn the ignition key to on but don't engage starter. Listen for a buzzing sound coming from underneath the vehicle near gas trank. The buzzing sound is the fuel pump pumping up pressure. The buzzing sound might last only one to two seconds. Then turn ignition key off and turn it on again NOT engaging the starter several more times. This will help prime the fuel up to the engine. After you've done this several times, the engine should start. Lt me know if I was any help.

I changed my water pump now the engine lacks power and uses more gas


if your engine isn't at the point of death; i would advise you to have one of two things did, either have your 02 oxgen sensor changed, or your fueling system cleansed. and also; I heared you say you replaced your fuel pump. if you didn't have problems starting the car it wasn't neccessary.

BAD FUEL PUMP CHECK FOR FUEL PRESSURE WHEN ENGINE DIES AGAIN,IF YOU GET ZERO FUEL PRESSURE FUEL PUMP COULD BE BAD, I WOULD REPLACE FUEL PUMP RELAY FIRST BEFORE BUYING NEW FUEL PUMP.IF FUEL OKAY YOU COULD HAVE CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS OR WATER IN FUEL, FUEL COULD BE CONTAMINATED. I HAVE SEEN A FAULTY ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR CAUSE ENGINE TO STALL OUT.

Fuel pump not turning on. Won't fire but will turn over. swapped out relay, still not fire.


Try banging on the fuel tank, and then quickly try to start it, if it starts your fuel pump is almost dead and will need replaced soon.
If it doesn't start, test for power at the wiring connector on top of the fuel tank. This test requires 2 people, because the fuel pump is only powered for a few seconds when the engine isn't running. If you have power, then the problem is in the fuel pump (completely failed or bad wiring connection on the pump/inside the sending unit)

Not getting fuel to the carby, have checked float bowl(empty) have taken fuel line off and turned engine over but no fuel comes through. Fuel tank is full


On your Swift, there's probably a fuel filter located just off the gas tank that's somewhat hard to spot. It also takes a bit of finesse to get a wrench in position to change the filter, and so this part is often not changed out until it's completely plugged. I would suggest changing this filter to see if this makes any difference. However, even a plugged filter normally allows a bit of gasoline to dribble through.

A second possibility is that your fuel pump isn't working properly. I don't have my reference materials in front of me, but I believe that this car is equipped with an electric pump, as opposed to a mechanical pump on the engine. If your fuel pump isn't working, you won't get fuel delivery through the lines to your engine. Also, the fuel pump may have failed from having to work extra-hard to compensate for a partially or wholly blocked fuel filter (see above).

I would trouble-shoot both these items; I suspect that one or both of them are contributing to your fuel problem. I have seen a number of Swifts / Metros sold "as-is" or sent to the junk yard for running poorly when their only problem is a clogged fuel filter.
