Hello, You may have tripped the Inertia sensor. Depending on what you are driving, the Inertia sensor can be in the left quarterpanel in the trunk or cargo area. This usually means Crown Vics, Taurus, Expedition, and some Mustangs. If you have a Truck or Van it can be under the dash on the Passengers kickpanel area. All that is needed is to press and hold a reset button on it for a second or 2 and your fuelpump will work again.

It can also be found around the drivers kickpanel. You can ask an Autoparts store the location which will be faster than usuing the Internet. If your car or truck is older than fuel injection models you are probably doing the right thing with the fuel filter.

If you do not have luck with the fuel you need to check for spark.

I own a 2000 mercury cougar. it has a problem that I dont kno anything about. it starts driving and dies. first it drives normally and then it dies. people in car shop told me that its a dead alternator....


Replace the fuel filter with a new one, see if it solves your problem, then I would have the fuel pressure tested to see if the fuel pump is faulty. Some times they will run, but won't hold enough pressure to run an engine at speed. Or you could just get a new pump and replace it, so at least you can rule it out as the culprit.

My 1999 gmc sierra was hesitating going was told to do a tune up changed plugs and wires air filter changed oil on my way home that day noticed it was running rough when stopped at red lights dont kno


Is the vehicle running rougher since the tune up and such ? Is it worse since fuel filter change ? Was there any change good or bad since the work was done ? Is the fuel line leaking gas ? Do you remeber what code AutoZone came up with ? I'm just trying to get all the correct information so I can give you the best guess as far as what your problem could be. Also what size engine do you have ? Reply/comment here or you can email me directly at csautomotivecars@att.net. I don't mind helping if I can and there is no cost but as I said need as much info as I can.

Slow starting, then starts up. battery checked out fine.


Get the fuel pressure checked,also check if fuel filter is clogged, then it will not let fuel to flow properly causing this problem. Get both fuel pressure and fuel filter checked. If the pressure is checked low,then problem is towards fuel pump. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

It cranks up for about five seconds then cuts off i thought it was the fuel pump but i was told to check the fuel filter


A clogged fuel filter can cause this yes, but, please know a working fuel pump without enough pressure can also cause this. I recommend checking fuel filter n change if necessary, see how that goes but a dirty or bad fuel filter is just a testimony of how much work the fuel pump has been doing, so a fuel pump pressure test is something u should consider also. Other causes of such symptons are vacuum leaks from gasket surfaces of the manifold and throttle body. Check mounting bolts to be sure none are missing and they are all tighteed as should be. Hope this helps.

Car died in front of house, would crank, but not start...fuel pump has been buzzing for a while so i assumed it went out, replaced pump & filter, sadly cant get it to start. checked all fuses, relays...


No pressure at fuel rail either mean a clog in the fuel lines or filter...or a failed or incorrectly installed pump. If you have voltage at the pump when you are cranking the engine over recheck pump and fuel filter. also try applying shop are to the fuel lines when disconnecting at pump and fuel rail to clear any clogs.
