There could be a problem in the tank with the rubber fuel hose that goes from the fuel pump to the rail of the fuel pump assembly they tend to deteriorate over time or a clogged filter sock on the fuel pump. If the main fuel filter is not clogged then you will have to take the pump out of the tank to check the problem.

I ran my 2000 chrysler voyager se 3.3 v6 for a while yesterday and it ran great now it wont start at all i need some ideas of what to check i personally think it is the fuel pump????


I think you are right. the van ran great the day before and then it wont start the next day, this sounds like the most common problem and that would be the fuelpump. A quick test to try to see if it is the fuelpump would be to have someone inside the van tryying to start it while you lay under it and beat on the bottom of the gas tank with a rubber hammer or something that wont damage the tank and while its being cranked you will beat on the bottom of the tank and see if it starts, if it starts then you will know for sure its the pump, this shakes and vibrates the pump to get going again, now be careful because it may run fine and even restart again but just know that it will die agagin so make sure to replace the pump, hope this works, i use this method at work all the time and it works most of the time unless the pump is to far gone. good day. please let me know what happens thank you.

Has fire and is turning over strong but wont start


Probally not getting any gas. Turn your key to the start position and listen to see if you hear your fuelpump come on. It should be a humming noise for a few seconds then cut off by itself. If you hear that then your fuelpump shouldn't be your problem.You should have a valve pin on the fuelrail to the fuel injectors. Remove the small cap and depress the pin on the inside and see if gas squirts out. Do this after turning the switch to the start position. If gas squirts out then your fuel injectors are probally not spraying. Take out your #1 sparkplug according to your firing order which should be labeled somewhere under neath the hood and check it to see if it has any gas on it after a few times trying to crank it. If it doesn't then your fuel injectors are not spraying.

I have replaced the fuel pump amongst a lot of other things. I can spray gas or starting fluid in the throtal body and it will run rough untill the fumes ware out. Its a 1995 ford explorer 4x4 xlt


If you hear the fuelpump operate the first 1 or 2 seconds when the key is turned to RUN position, the fuelpump is working. If you do not hear the fuelpump run, check the Inertia switch which should be in the side panel of the rear cargo area. If you have an owners manual check for the Inertia switch location.

To reset the Inertia switch, hold the button on it for 2-3 seconds. You should now hear the pump run. You may also have a fuelpump relay under the hood in one of the Powerboxes. The Powerbox may have a fusible link from the Battery. When the fusible link is OK and the Pump Relay is OK, there is a fuse in the Fuse panel. Then finally the Ignition switch will trip the Pump relay. As power flows through the wire to the fuelpump the Inertia switch can break the power connection.

So you have 5 powerpoints before the fuelpump will work. Fusible link, Pump Relay, Fuse Panel, Ignition Switch,and Inertia switch. These must all work before the fuelpump can run.

Car wont start


in 1998 they changed the ecm (Electric Control Module) format so you'll have to most likely find one at a junk yard or buy a new one for a 1997
