Car wont start

You need to be very quiet for this test, but try turning the ignition key until dash warning lights are on, but without cranking the engine. Listen for whirring noise from fuel pump in the gas tank. You may even lift out the rear seat base, to pick up any sound as best you can. If you can't hear anything from several attempts then it's likely you have a failed fuel pump. The fuel pump can sometimes suffer damage when running out of fuel.

It have a 1994 crown victoria it ran out of gas I put 5 gallons of gas in it, when I turned the motor over it started right up, it ran for about a minute and a half then quit. I changed the filter, checked...

Air in the fuel line. Take one small wire off the starter relay and turn and hold the key in the start position for a while. Listen for the fuel pump. It will run fast for a second then slow down. When it does, put the wire back on the starter relay and crank the engine.

1999 gmc sierra 2500 6 liter ran out of gas now won't start

If you are at or near the 100,000 mile mark then your fuel pump may have failed. If you remove the fuel filler cap and listen carefully at the filler neck while someone turns the ignition key to "run" [don't actually crank the engine] you should be able to hear the fuel pump buzz for about a second and a half as the key is turned On. If you don't hear the pump buzz then odds are your pump is dead. Your pump may have actually failed making it appear as though you ran out of fuel. Not to uncommon. Hope this helps and good luck!

Turned off car in driveway,and now it turns over but will not start 2001 9.3 saab wagon

I will assume your car has gas in it....check your the relays in the engine compartment....make sure they are snug and none look burnt. Check your fuses inside the car. If fuses look good and you have gas in your car check your fuel can do this by turning your key to the on position, without starting the car and listen for a humming/whirring noise from the fuel pump....make sure everything is off like radio, a/c, you can helps if you remove the gas cap and have someone turn the ignition on while you listen stand near the gas tank and listen. If you hear the fuel pump kicking on then check your fuel filter....when was it last replaced? Hope this helps...good luck!

When starting in the morning, you have to turn the key and let it sit for about 10 or 15 seconds before you start it or else it will start and then soon die. What would be causing this? 1990 Volvo 240 DL

This sounds like a problem with the fuel pump. Check your fuel pump relay then listen for a whirring noise when you turn the ignition to the on position; without starting it. You have two fuel pumps; the main and the pre-pump. The pre-pump, which is in the gas tank itself, can be checked by taking the gas cap off the gas tank (with the ignition key on) and listening for a faint whirring noise. If the "whirring" noise is delayed you need to troubleshoot these pumps and see which one is failing.

Engine cranks but won't start

If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.

Where is the fuel pump and fuel filte located????

Sounds like a good possibility that this is your problem. I am not real familiar with this particular vehicle, but most modern EFI vehicles have the fuel pumps inside the tank and the fuel filter will be somewhere inside the frame, underneath between the tank and engine. One thing to try is to take off the fuel cap and with ignition off have someone listen while turning the key to the on position, but not starting for a whirring noise which only lasts a couple of seconds until the system is pressurized.Then even harder to hear, start the engine and listen for a constant whirring. If neither of these tests produce the desired effect then your fuel pump is probably bad and the tank has to come out. You can have a pressure test done to confirm.

Fuel issues

should hear a whirring humming sound from the fuel tank (if that is where the pump is located) just turn on the key and take off the gas cap you should hear it.
Also did you drain the fuel from the tank when you had it down ? after that many years the fuel would be "gummed" up.

2000 Dodge Durango Won't Start

You might want to Check electronic sensors, like would you start with the idle control sensors.Also Try tot urn the ignition key to the point just before the engine starts to turn over And leave the key in the that position. If the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank,remove the gas cap & listen for a "whirring" sound. This sound means your electronic pumping is working.
