I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara almost ran out of gas.I put gas in and now when I push the gas pedal the car barely moves I barely got home thepedal

running the pump dry is bad. on all EFI cars
the pump is fuel cooled and fuel lubricated
if you run any pump dry, you risk pump damage
but lets hope it not damaged, hope is good.
key on 10 times, hear it run?(the pump) let it run 10 times not started
and pray it works, and this trick primes it and gets all air out of the line
the 3 second run time is called just that auto prime.
then run it.
never run EFI cars dry, its a rule.
the dash chime told you it was low, ignore that at your risk.

Where to go from here?

Did you fit a new fuel pick up screen to the pump? Does the problem still occur with the fuel cap removed?

My 1991 Camaro rs 3.1 runs rough in gear but not at idle, and fuel pump runs the same without a fuel pump relay, I have 10-12 lbs of fuel pressure at intake-whether engine running at idle or just key on....

How did you measure the fuel pressure, and what is the factory specification for fuel pressure? You are correct, it should NOT run without a fuel pump relay. The fuel pump relay performs safety functions, such as shutting of the fuel pump in an accident that deploys an air bag.

My guess would be a valve timing problem. But I don't work on Chevrolet products, so I'm not sure if you have a timing chain or a timing belt. Do you have a distributor, or a coil pack in the vehicle? If a distributor, is the ignition timing correct? Watch out for vacuum leaks! And check to see that the PCV valve is closing, or you will lose lots of vacuum, making the engine run rough and nearly powerless at low speed.

97 jgc laredo 4.0 in line 6, 4x4...ok here it is...sometimes the fuel pump will run and start. However like now the fuel pump is not running...kinda like intermit power..sometimes it runs sometimes it...

If the pump starts to jam it wills seem like it won't run. The stuttering on startup is also related to a failing fuel pump as the intank pumps in our Jeep (I have the same ZJ)

Next time it won't start, try hitting the fuel tank with a small hammer (lighty as per not to crack it)
This can sometimes jar the pump in such a way to get the fins spinning again. If this works I would reccomend replacing the fuel pump.

You should also hear the pump prime when you turn the ignition to on (before start)
Priming the pump 3-4 times can help the stuttering on startup.

You can also get a fuel line pressure tester from most auto parts stores and verify that you are holding pressure after the pump is off.

Fuel pump will run get fuel to fuel rail but not to motor

fords run two (2) relays for the fuel system one runs the fuel pump and the other runs the injectors so buy one relay and just switch one at a time you will be up and running in no time.Hope this helps you.

Truck runs fine,then dies when hot,the problem does not happen all the time,replaced fuel pump same problem,noticed fuel pump runs all the time now

wrong fuel pump? wires crossed, fuel pump should run when car is on, this is what keeps it running, maybe fuel pump is louder than original and you notice it more. Check your fuel filter. Get a tune up........

I am looking for the most energy efficient way to run a 10,000 gallon indoor pool 365 days a year. Would i need a timer to optimize my electricity savings with the use of a Pentair IntelliFlo 4x160 pump or...

You run a pool pump based on pumping volume compared to pool volume and long enough to turn the water over frequently enough to keep it balanced and clear.

You should have no need to run it 24 hours a day to accomplish that since the pool is indoors and safe from the effects of weather and sunlight.

What you will want to do is determine the minimum amount of time then the pump needs to operate to keep the water balanced and clear based on fill water makeup, your chemical choices and bather loads and then set the timer to run the system for that amount of time and the pump for the speed required.

If you really want to be sure you are as efficient as possible you will need to look at the pump curve for your exact model and look for the point on the curve the pump is most efficient at, speed/volume wise and run it at that setting for the time you find thru experience mentioned above. That way the pump moves the most water it can at it's most efficient point for as little time as is required to keep the pool clean.

I hope I worded that in a way that makes sense.

Fuel pump humming

Hi Bill,

I've got a 91 Wrangler. I'm not sure what your problem is though.

I assume you have the 4.0l fuel injected straight six.

Is the fuel pump on all the time?

Does the car run?

Could you comment back with a bit more detail about the problem?

Pump will run for short period of time and then shut off

why are you running the pump wwith a defective impellar. If you continue to run this pump this way the motor might burn out, the impeller housing mi9ght crack.
