Check the carburettor to se if fuel is getting through (or check the spark plugs to see if they're getting wet with fuel). If fuel is getting through, it might be electrics. Check there's a good spark at the plugs.. Any water got into tank or carbs?

Ran out of gas than i put a quarter tank worth of gas but it still wouldnt start


Turn the key on you should hear a humming sound from the fuel pump pressurizing the fuel system. Just leave the key on for a 10 -15 seconds and then try to start the car. do not pump the gas pedal. If that does not work you may need a new fuel pump. Check the fuel pump fuse.

I ran my car out of gas and put gas in it now it wont start


How much gas did you put in it? It is very possible that when you ran it out, that your fuel filter became clogged with the sediment from the bottom of the tank. Make sure there is atleast 5gal. of fuel in the tank. Turn the the ignition all the way forward and wait 3 seconds, but dont turn the engine over. Do this 5 or 6 times to get the fuel pump priming. Then try starting the car without pumping the gas pedal. If the car still wont start, check that the fuel system has pressure. Maybe something failed in the fuel pump when it went dry. You can have someone listen near or at the fuel tank to see if they can hear the fuel pump kicking on and off while someone turns the key on and off. Hope this helps.

I have a 92 Storm GSI. When driving down the road the car stalls like it is out of gas then starts running. I have replaced the fuel filter, pump and relay. Any other ideas?


For the age of this car it is a combination of both the fuel filter and pump, i owned one several years ago and found that the gas tanks are prone to rust inside, if you have replaced the pump and filter you may want to drop the tank again and check the screen on the pump if it is brown you have rust in the tank: another problem i had ( if you bought an oem pump ) they tend to slip out of position, you can tie the pump it place so it doesn't move......

Where is the fuel pump on a 1996 saturn sl1? In the tank? Is it difficult to replace or should I take it to a mechanic?


If you have ever dropped a fuel tank before, it is not hard. If you have never done it before you will find it difficult. Just about all fuel pumps have been inside the gas tank for 20 years or so, including all Saturns.

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 95 saturn sl1?


FUEL PUMP-REMOVAL:
1. Relieve the fuel pressure. (in order to relieve fuel pressure: 1. remove fuel cap. 2. remove fuel pump relay from the relay panal located under the center console. 3. start engine and wait for engine to stall, then turn off the ignition key. 4. Position a small screwdriver in the fuel pressure test port and carefully depress the valve to allow any excess fuel to bleed out of the fuel line.)
2. Remove the cable from the negative battery terminal.
3. Remove the fuel tank.
4. The fuel pump/fuel level sending unit assembly is located inside the fuel tank. Its held in place by a lock ring. Using a brass punch and hammer, carefully tap the lock ring couterclockwise and sperate the cover from the tank. ***WARNING*** Don not use a steel punch-a spark could cause an explosion.
5. Pull the fuel pump assembly out of the tank. Be careful when manipulating the module out of the fuel tank. it will be necesarry to angle it in various positions as you extract it.
6. Remove the O ring from the opening.
7. Inspect the filter on the lower end of the fuel pump. If its dirty, clean it with solvent and blow it out with compressed air. If its too dirty to be cleaned, replace it.
8. The Fuel pum cannot be disassembled except for removal of the fuel level sending unit. In the event of a defective fuel pump, replace the eniter assembly as a single unit or module.

Hope this Helps!

97 sl1 started stalling when 1/4 tank of gas now stalls at 3/4 tank replaced fuel pump and filter/regulator twice runs great when full


It seems that cap of the tank is not letting in air to replace the volume consumed by the engine. Earlier, when it used to stall when1/4 full, there must been less blockage of air but now the air inlet must be really clogged-up,so much so that after being emptied 1/4 of fuel, the negative pressure built up inside the tank is enough to negate the fuel pumps capacity & without gas it will stall the engine which is being deprived of fuel.
One way to make sure that this IS the problem, fill the tank half, do not put the cap try a drive at least for 5 miles & if the engine does not stall, then one can be sure that he cap of the gas tank has to be replaced............sodeep
