It sounds like it may be the fuel pump,while someone tries to start the car listen at the gas cap with the cap off you should hear the pump run,if you don`t then you can do the same and hit the gas tank on the bottom in the center of the tank and it may start.if it does then you need the fuel pump replaced.by your help request i assume that it turns over fine.

I have 84 ramcharger started fine used for about 1/2 hour plowwing driveway shut off would not restart until cooled off 2nd time it has done this?


Sounds as if the ignition control module is getting hot and not allowing it to restart. Had the same issue with a Dodge b-250 van, except for the plowing part. It would run for about an hour and start sputtering and shut off. After it cooled down, van would start and run great for the same length of time and do it again.

Van won't start but runs fine when started with starting fluid.


your fuel pump is probably going out and cannot provide enough PSI without the extra voltage from your alternator

2005 freestar, turn key on and fuel system won't pressurize. Spray a little starting fluid and van runs fine, system won't pressurize for initial start.


i would check the fuel filter if thats not it then it will most likely be the fuel pressure regulator make sure the vacuum line didnt fall off of it if that checks out then id say its your pump good luck i hope this helps

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch .
