    Have you checked the fuel pressure? The most common cause of no starts is the ignition system not the fuel pump.

2005 saturn relay wont start acts like its not getting fuel


Is the security light lit ? anti - theft system ! Try spraying carburetor cleaner into the engine through the throttle plate ,if it starts you have a fuel delivery problem . The fuel pump or the injectors are not be turned on . You should check to see if there is spark also ,pull a plug wire an hold it near metal on the engine somewhere an have a helper try an start the vehicle . No spark , you have a ignition problem . You could have a no spark problem an it would act the same as a not getting fuel problem .

How do I know its my fuel pump that needs changing? I have a 2004 Pontiac grand am and it turns over fine, but some days especially when its really hot outside and I'm going on long trips the car acts as...


the only way to tell is to have the fuel pressure tested with a gauge when its running okay then have it tested when its acting up. this will show any type of pressure and volume problem that could indicate a pump problem. when and how long has it been since you changed the fuel filter. pumps will usually act up when they get hot or when you have just filled up on gas. they will also act up when you have driven a bit and shut the engine off to go lets say into a store and come out and try to start it. this is why a fuel pressure test is important.

Will a fuel pump driver module on a 2002 ford taurus v6 dohc make the vehicle act like the fuel pump is going out?


This could indeed be the fault. If the vehicle does not restart after this issue occurs, then disconnect the fuel line and test for pressure. If low, then replace the fuel module and/or pump.

Engine died as I came to stop off hiway on off ramp, tried to start and engine would not turn over. Acted like it was flooded. left to get help and found oil cap off under hood latch area when I returned....


pumping the petal will not flood engine. Can u smell gas while trying to turn it over? can u pull a spark plug and smell fuel on it. You also do need to make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail first can u hear the pump come on when you turn key in the on position second with key on engine off see if fuel comes out of the port at the fuel rail careful contents under pressure.

What would make a 1993 buick lasabre act like its not getting gas would tht be a fuel filter


Your vehicle has fuel injection which requires an electric fuel pump. If your vehicle is not getting any fuel I would suspect the fuel pump over the filter. Make sure you have voltage at the pump.

Were can i locate the fuel regulator on my 2002 explore. change the fuel pump explore still wont start. still acts like its not getting fuel


before you do anything else , scan your vehicle with an OBD 2 scanning tool . If you don't get any codes: make sure your fuel pump cycles on for a few seconds when you turn the key from off to on, (you can hear it huming}...if it does then replace the in line fuel filter. if your fuel pump doesn't cycle for a few seconds when the key is turned on, check your fuel cut off (vehicle rollover )safety switch and reset it if necessary. finally , check the fuel pump relay circuit.

Truck says its out of gas


This sounds like your fuel pump. See if you are getting fuel to the fuel rail. Sometimes giving the vehicle a good shake will help it to temporarily start. Also try the relay.
