Yes that sounds like an inoperative fuel pump but before condemning the pump make sure you have key on power to the pump by checking the fuse and relay.

Some times engine will not start i have to turn ignition of &on several times before starts fuel pump and filter been replaced. there is plenty of fuel preasure. fuel is reaching cylinders


What make , model an year vehicle ? You need to explain a little better what's happening ! When you turn the key to the start position what happens ? Does the starter spin the engine ? The engine doesn't start an run ? A crank no start or no-crank no start ? How do you know there is plenty of fuel pressure ? Did you hook - up a fuel pressure gauge ? An how do you know fuel is reach cylinders ? Did you do fuel injector fire test ?

While cranking my 2013 Ford Fiesta acts like it is starving for gas. It eventually starts after about 3 tries. Any thoughts?


Turn the key on and listen to see if you hear the fuel pump run and then shut off. If so it should be ok. Check your fuel filter or replace it.
If it is just hard to start of a morning, it could be the MAP sensor. (Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor). When they go bad, the engine is difficult to start. I hope this points you in the right direction. Good Luck.

Ran out of gas, car wouldn't crank replaced fuel pump, fuel relay, and in line fuel filter and still won't crank on 2002 chevy avalanche


still won't crank ? how's your battery ? starter ? starter solonoid ? if your engine does'nt crank , its dead ! would'nt you check the battery first ? then move on with checking the starter circuit ? seems like your putting the cart before the horse ! first of all, when you run out of gas, you need to replace the FUEL FILTER, your engine just sucked the dirt, garbage, etc., out of the tank. there's plenty of sediment in the tank, don't know how it gets there, but, you'd be surprized ! talking threw experience !!! I operate heavy equipment, its a cardinal sin to run out of fuel !!! you say you replaced the inline filter, which one, up by the engine or the main filter, under vehicle along frame ? are we talking about the same animal, PLEASE CLARIFY !

1982 Cadillac DeVille with Digital Fuel Injection, won't start. How do I know if the fuel pump is bad?


Yes, it should. If it is conventional (like other GM cars), the pump will turn on for a couple of seconds when key is turned to on. This will prime the system for starting. When key is turned to start (cranking), the pump is turned on again at the relay, and pump stays on as long as cranking the engine happens. Once engine is started, the oil pressure switch keeps the pump running.
The best way to check if pump is good is to use a fuel pressure gauge. If it does not have a test port called a Schrader valve on the fuel rail, the pressure gauge must be teed in somewhere convenient. But if you take off the line at the filter, some gas should come out with key on, and when cranking the engine gas should come out in a steady stream.

Wont turn over I turn the key and it sounds like im out of gas.


So your engine cranks, you have plenty of fuel, but your car won't start? Before you go and pull spark plugs or injectors to see if we have that kind of problem, you should check for a bad fuel pump or dirty fuel filter. To check to see that your fuel pump is working as its supposed to, turn the key to the ON position (don't try to start it yet.) This is the point in which your fuel pump should begin to pressurize. Please report back once you have done this so we can move along.

Car started then stalled and now car cranks but won't start plenty of gas in tank


Turn key on but dont turn motor listen for humming on either side in back of car,.if you hear nothing your fuel pump or fuel pump relay needs to be replaced..Also if you tend to run car to almost empty your fuel filter might be plugged. Running close to empty causes all the rust from the bottom of the tank to plug the filter.

When I try to start my 03 sierra it struggles to fire up, like it is starving for gas, on my second attempt it fires up like normal. What causes this?


Have a look at the distributer cap and rotor button,if they have carbon build up or corrosion then replace them.Also listen for the fuel pump to stop before cranking the engine,if it starts better when you do this try a new fuel filter.
