The cheapest thing to change first is the fuel filter which should be changed when the fuel pump is changes anyway.you should hear the fuel pump running.you really should have the pressure checked.the pressure should be about 35.lbs.you also could be loosing power to the fuel pump relay(poor wire corrosion) or a relay problem itself.there have been times when the wiring at the fuel pump was bad also,the fuse is good other wise the car would not start to begin with.

I would start with the smallest and cheapest first, try replacing the fuel filter ensure it is placed in the direction of fuel flow, then see if that helps out before moving onto the pump.

Feedback appreciated.

suspect the fuel filter. if you replaced the fuel filter & still stall, use fuel pressure gauge to check the fuel system. (could be bad fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump.)

2002 Free Lander stalls out after starting.


It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

Hello,
When the MAF on most vehicles reach a point of preventing the engine from starting, you can usually just unplug it and the engine will start. If that doesn't work-
You may want to try having the O2 sensor, ( Oxygen sensor ), checked. It works with other components of the emission system and can cause similar symptoms as the MAF, including preventing the engine from starting.
