Question about 1997 Ford Probe

1 Answer

Urgent help guys!

Whenever I start my car, the ignition works but the engine doesn't start. My mechanic says its the fuel pump but I kinda have to be sure it is cuz' I'm a missionary in the Philippines and I'm having the parts sent to me from CA. Please help me. I also need to know what I have to buy for my fuel gauge. Even if I have the car full tank, the gauge reads only 1/4.
Thanks

The fuel pump and the sender unit despite the fact they are seperate pieces are actually all in one when put together on your car.
The pump on your car is actually located in the fuel tank with the sender ubit, the problems you are experiencing are probably related to one another.
The cheapest place I have found on the net for parts is here:

They have a very easy to navigate catalogue on their site with pictures, decriptions and prices.

Sounds like your fuel pump has gone bad. Take it to a mechanic and they can check it.

98 Isuzu rodeo, engine cranks and trys to start but it won't


If this is a diesel engine you probably have an air lock in the fuel system. It will need "bleeding" before it will start. If you have already tried bleeding the fuel system there may be an air lock in the injectors. If it still doesn't start I suggest you carry out a compression check because diesel engines need to be in good condition to start easily, especially in cold weather If it is a petrol engine, there could be problems with engine timing or ignition problems.

My 93 jeep grand cherokee is not getting fuel...if I disconnect the negative post for awhile and then reconnect it, the jeep gets fuel and will run....what is going on?


If the check engine light does not light up on the dash when you turn on the ignition, at those times when your jeep doesn't want to start, then your main jeep ecm is in need of repair. The fuel pump relay will get energized only after that check engine light comes on. It's a known problem, especially with the first and second year production Grand Cherokees, 93 and 94.

The engine crank but it wont start, when we are traveling the vehicle lose its power. we check the fuel pump and it dose not work, still wont start


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. I am assuming the fuel pump works. If it doesn't, check the pump, fuses, and relay. Check your fuel pump button if you have one. This vehicle is new so you may have an electrical issue. Is the check engine light on? If so, you need to have the computer scanned. Many things can cause the engine to not start. If could be fuel related. Check your fuel pressure to make sure it is normal. If it is not, check your fuel filter, lines, and injectors. It may be the ignition system, such as plugs/coils, wires, distributor, coil packs, distributor cap. You need fuel, fire, and air to start the car. I don't know how many miles you have, but if it is up there, you need to check the plugs, coils, ect. I need to know miles, if your check engine light is on. It could be the starter, starter solenoid, or ignition module. Post back so I can help you. Thanks.

My truck wouldn't start and I had to have it towed home. It would turn over but not start. The wrecker guy said "fuel pump". A couple of other mechanics said the same. I replaced the fuel pump...


Did you check the fuel pump pressure on the old pump before removal? Did you change the fuel filter before removing the old pump? Did you check to see if you could hear the old pump running when you turned the key on? Did you check the fuel pump relays or fuses? Did you check to see if you have power going to the fuel pump at the fuel pump electrical connector, on the Wire harness side of the connector? Make all of these same checks for the and on the new pump. for a gas engine also make sure you have good spark to each spark plug. Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

Hi. Every time you turn ignition on you should hear your fuel pump working for few second. (Priming) if you can't hear it turning on check fuse or fuses and relay first before you check the pump.

If not starting U have either a fuel delivery issue or a no spark situation. Open a fuel delivery joint by the engine and turn on the ignition. If fuel squirts out the pump is fine and the hassle is with the spark. Could be bad igniter causing either no spark or a weak one.

Car will not start,battery good.Turn key in the ignition nothing happens.STARTER WILL NOT TURN OVER.


hElO..yElLoW,
The car engine must be mechanically okay, judging from the not starting, I would most likely conclude electrical system is fine as well. However, there must be a component, it may probabley be the Engine Ignition Coil(s). These guys are very important so as to supply sufficient current to the starter. Try to diagnose at the dealer to see before replacing :)
