You say it won't turn over. Then your problem is with the battery, ignition switch, or starter. If you hear a click, click, click, then the battery is dead. If you hear nothing then it may be a bad ignition switch. Turn on the headlights and then attempt to start the engine. If you hear a click, the lights dim, and it will not turn over, the starter is suspect. Check the voltage at the battery with a voltmeter set to DC voltage on the 20 volt scale. These are the readings you look for. car wont turn over so - clay58_38.png If your battery is not reading at least 12.2 volts it needs charging or replacement. If the battery is over 3 years old, it more than likely needs replacing. Now if I am missing what you are saying and the engine does turn over but will not start then turn on the ignition without trying to start the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then shut down. If you do not, then the fuse may be blown or the fuel pump relay may be defective. The fuel pump itself may also be bad. You may have to open the fuel filler door and remove the cap and listen at that location while someone else turns on the ignition in order to hear the pump running.

Best suggestion would be to put a fuel pressure gauge on and and see what the fuel pressure reads when cycling the key off and on pressure should be 37 to 43 any less then this suspect the fuel pump or an electrical connection to pump. When it acts up and you can not hear the pump running try tapping on the fuel tank.If vehicle starts after that suspect the fuel pump.

ok... Wait we have to settle some things here. You can get the vehicle started by pouring fuel down the throttle body, if so then it is most definatley a fuel pump problem. I usually try to bang on the tank with a rubber malle while cranking the engine. if it starts then its the pump, the simplest way to check is to see if your getting power at the fuel pump assembly. If you are then you need to change the pump the power wire is the grey one on the tank.

Car turns over but wont start


Hi,
I'm not sure what model make or year you have, but I think you are referring to the noise made by the fuel pump when the key is turned on... ?
The fuel pump sends and pressurizes fuel through the fuel line. If you do not hear this noise, your fuel pump may need to be replaced. On most later model cars and trucks, this envolves dropping the gas tank, as most modern make car's fuel pumps are located on and connected to the top of the tank.
Take the gas cap off and have a good set of ears listen to the tank inlet as someone turns the key to on position... just to make sure.
Good luck!

Car wont start. turns over but wont catch.


The fuel pumpmay have failed. Try having someone turn the key to the ON position while you listen under the car near the fuel tank for the fuel pumo to hum. If it does not, or it sounds like it is grinding, then it may have failed. A pressure test with a gauge would be need to check for proper pressure.

Truck just died need help!!!


Need to turn the key to the on position, and at the same time listen at the gas tank area for a hum sound for 3 seconds.. if you dont have that noise then you need to replace the fuel pump... in the future always keep your fuel level about 1/4 tank, that is what keeps the pump cooled...
