Getting power to new fuel pump came on once now not working

Sounds like you have an air pocket in your fuel line. Crack a line loose just barely to pump out any air bubbles. This should get you running. Thank you and please give feedback.

Replaced intank fuel pump on a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant, car wants to start but acts like it's out of gas. I have 1/4 tank of gas..... what do I need to do to get it started????

Did you release the air in the system. You may have an air pocket stuck in the fuel line system. If it is fuel injected, be careful because the line pressure can be extremely high and if not released properly it can leak out under high pressure. Be sure you changed the fuel filter as well. Things can find there way into the lines when removing and installing things in line. Check that you have sufficient fuel pressure at the carb or fuel injection system. The system requires to be pressurized so that the injectors operate correctly,

Dodge durango has air pocket i cant get it out

Hi T, I'm guessing that your vehicle is diesel, as petrol should not give problems with air locks. Air can enter the fuel system from several places, so I suggest you check the following. The fuel line from the tank through to the filter housing. Replace the filter and if required, the complete filter housing. Check all the rubber and plastic piping for leakages, and lastly the injector pump. If there is an even misfire, you'll need to check, service and have the injector pump and injectors re-calibrated. Regards and happy new year John

Ran out off petrol then we put some it but wont fire up

When a car runs entirely out of fuel, it sometimes leaves air pockets in the fuel lines. If you are a bit mechanically inclined, try using a starting fluid to get it running, and that should pull the air out of the fuel lines for you.
Starter fluid is sprayed into the air intake (not into the air filter, but behind that into the engine's air intake) and gives the engine something to use to turn over and **** some fuel through the normal lines. If you have not done this before, you should ask someone at an auto parts store how it should be done (when you buy the starter fluid) or have someone help you with it. Starting a car this way can be a bit dangerous if you are not sure what you are doing .. so be sure you know, or ask someone who does to help. Better to ask for help than burn off half of your face :-)

Changed fuel pump-after driving and cut off engine truck will not crank for several hours

you most likly have still got a pocket of air somewhere in your line that is moving back and forth in your lines . If after changeing your fuel pump, did you bleed your system? if not you will need to do that . if you did , you may need to repeat that process again in order to get all the air out of your lines . hope this is a help, and good luck. signed Redneck car daddy

Truck won't restart after running out of Gas

Kick the gas tack in the center bottom. There is an electric fuel pump in there. You ran low and the pump sucked in the junk from the bottom of the tank. Don't kick it hard, just hard enough to jar whatever is in the pump loose.

Car wont start on 206

you must fill the fuel filter housing with diesel to eliminate air pocket. if you don't have diesel, fill it with automatic transmission fluid. it will smoke for a few seconds, but it will run so fuel pump can catch up. don't touch throttle for a few seconds till you know that it is running on diesel and the tranny fluid is all used up.
