    Many aftermarket fuel pumps will not produce the required pressure to operate your vehicle properly - spend the extra money to get a factory fuel pump and see if that cures the problem

Car will start right up when cold go down road dies starts back up once hot shut off starts back up let it set ten min. wont start has spark has fuel pressure put new fuel pump in old pump did same thing...


Could be a relay or other electrical issue.
You say it has fuel pressure and spark, if that were true it should run.
So it either does not have enough spark to fire the plugs under compression, or not enough fuel pressure going thru the injectors, or not at the right time.
You might want to check for trouble codes in the computer.
There has to be something missing from the equation when it won't start. You may have to check all of the plugs for fire and try some carb cleaner sprayed into the intake to boost fuel supply to find the issue.

Will not continue running


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump blockage, or a list of other things. Is the oil pressure light on ?
If this is a vortec engine, it requires 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Have you checked the fuel pressure and is it enough ?

Have you checked if the pump is actually pumping gas by removeing the fuel line from carb stick it in glass jar and have someone else crank engine . if gas pours out change fuel filter if not replace fuel pump. if you are fuel injected disreguard last. get fuel pressure tester from auto parts store .they will hav specs on how many pounds of pressuere you should have if pump checks out good try replaceing fuel filter.

1995 Toyota Camry fuel problem. Engine turns over but not starting. fuel pump fuses OK. Opened diagnostic box and used wire to jump to +B contact with ignition on. No response.


Along with the fuze, there is also a relay in the system. If the relay is defective you will not have any power to the pump. Best to check for current at the pump connector (near or at the fuel tank) with either a test light or volt meter. If you have power, the pump is bad. if not, check the relay and retest.

Hope this helps

Describe your 2007 Jeep Wrangle2007 Wrangler


USA car
what engine???????????
wiki
2.8L VM Motori RA 428 Diesel I4
Complete engine specs[show] 3.6L Pentastar V6
Complete engine specs[24][show] 3.8 L EGH V6
times the starter will continue to run until key is turned off.
that is starter relay bad or the puter running it gone nuts.
or bad starter
next time when starter latches up, pull the relay
if it kills the cranking its bad relay or puter
if not, bad starter. all in 1min work..
and a very very serious first ORDER fix first problem
runs on test fuel. but you failed to keep it running for the 2 -3 second JEEP RULE.
if you had here is the results. (logic) hard.
1: i can keep it running with spray need a video?
yes, means ASD is not dropping out
2: no? ASD is killing the engine on purpose. and scan tool told you.

cranks no start
you said,
"No codes." if really true , there is no fuel pressure.!
if not true, its done wrong. so scan correctly THIS time.
is the skim light glowing in the dash cluster, if yes, it will not start
by DESIGN. SKIM is the immobilizer and DOES!

you must scan WHILE l its failing, not after, WHILE.
HOW TO SCAN correctly on JEEPS, (no starts)
key on, see scanner working? now, it must, if not ask.
crank or 5 seconds, (1 potato , 2 potata, 3,4,5.
release key, ( 4 and 5 are overkill but why not?)
do not turn key off or say 2 minutes, get PCM time to REPORT.

scan (2008 or newer scan tools work, CAN-BUS certified)
the tool then tells you why the ASD RELAY dropped killing starting (by DESIGN)
try to know SKIM is and option, so.... me blind can see car
http://jeepdied.com/ASD.html

runs on test fuel longer that 3 seconds, by hand, means.
all is working mostly, the fuel pressure gauge needs a jeep hose kit to work so/....... the pump needs power to work,



now the acid tests
i have 2. acid tests lacking a real scan too;..
spark timing light connected up.
you crank and spark dies, AFTER 2-3 seconds into crank/start
cycle means ASD dropped.
connect meter to injector 12vdc power feed its a daisy chain
12vdc dies, at 3seconds of crank, or dies
at 3 seconds of running,
if true PCM did that , and is ASD drop doing that
running any jeep for 1 second on test fuel is a waste of time
it tells too little
learn that jeeps can drop a ASD at 100mph
any time it wants. and only scanning while it drops
tells you why, unless the SKIM lamp glows,

Wont start


Where the car runs on starter cleaner, this is definitely a fuel problem...

Could be a few things:

Do you hear the fuel pump running outside the car (for a few seconds) when you turn the key on (engine off)?

If not it might be the pump or the pump relay (in the engine compartment fuse and relay box)

If so, it might be:
Clogged inline fuel filter (in the fuel line from the pump to the engine)
Bad fuel pressure regulator
Bad injectors/wiring

Did you check the fuse and wires to see if you have power (and a good ground) to your engine computer (controls fuel injectors), this could also be the culprit (without power to the computer there is no way for the engine to get fuel).
