Mercury Cougar fuel pump constantly running

fuel pumps will run constantly when the ignition is on as the pressure regulator is allowing the excess fuel to return to the tank. IF ether fires then you have spark but what you do not have is injector operation. Check for pulse at the injectors and that they are clean and not blocked up

1991 f-159 4.9l cranks but won't start fuel pumps in both tanks loud

fuel pump should only run for about 15 seconds when u first turn the key on now you should check to see if the fuel filter is clogged or your sending unit might be bad on the fuel pump itself

I have a craftsman eager-1 4.5 hp mowerthat won't stay running. If I hold the primer bulb in, it runs. I've adjusted the screw all the in and it still won't keep running. Any ideas?

Do you hold the primer in or pump it? Pumping the primer forces the fuel into the intake bypassing the diaphragm's intended function. Assuming you pump the primer to keep it running your carburetor is dirty and should be cleaned. Ensure that your fuel is fresh and that your fuel can and fuel tank has no water in it. Ethanol in fuel will evaporate and cause condensation thus creating unwanted water.

+after running out of fuel car won't fire. Turns over but wont fire up

When you run out of gas in your car, there are a number of parts of the vehicle that can be damaged. For example, running a car without gas can damage the fuel pump, fuel filter, or push dirt through out the fuel line of the vehicle.

What you need to do is remove the air from the injection lines, the reason is when air is in the lines the fuel cannot form enough pressure to open the injectors due to the air compressing instead of being a solid fuel. So first step is to fill the fuel filter.

Next, follow the fuel line from the filter and see if it goes to a small primer pump optional on most machines, if not the go to the injector lines at the injector. Loosen all the lines and apply full throttle making sure the stop is push in SO the machine will run. Crank the motor for 15-20 seconds or until you see fuel pulsating out the loosened lines.

To help protect yourself against risk of running out of gas, consider filling up your tank anytime your fuel indicator falls below 1/4 a tank.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

'83 virago xv500k starts right up, runs solid, but

the fuel tap may be causing to problem, if it doesnt turn off it can also flood the engine over night and allow fuel into the sump which then vaporises as it gets hot and the breather allows this fuel back through the air cleaner causing rich mixture

Modle 2075 Replaced fuel hoses now wont start, It has fuel and fire. What should I check now?

Was it running before the replacement of the fuel lines? Does the primer bulb fill with fuel when pumped? Did you replace the line inside the fuel tank? Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Hope this helps!

1987 Merc Grand Marquis, saving as "collector" car, last ran 6 months ago. Will start, run for 3-10 seconds, then runs out of gas and stalls. Will not start again unless sits for 15 miutes or so. It is...

You need to attach a pressure gauge to the schrader valve and measure the fuel pressure with the key on and also while running. You need to see about 40 lbs in both cases.

Car runs fine for 15 miles or so. if i get into the gas after that it just coasts or hesitates. if I feather the gas it runs fine

The fuel system is borderline--fuel pump worn, plugged fuel filter, fuel tank not venting properly. Listen at the tank while someone turns on the key (no start attempt)--you should hear the pump run for a moment or two, then shut off. If it keeps running, the pump is likely worn out. Replace the fuel filter in any case. Pop the fuel cap loose after it starts to run poorly--does that give it another 15 miles? the tank vents through the charcoal canister--not the open air.

Fuel problem on Sanderson 623 teleporter

Wow.....I never knew they made DIESEL lawn mowers. Sweet!

But I tell you this, I can almost guess to a "T" they have the same problems a Cat C-15 475HP diesel motor has when she runs out of fuel, and which you already done.

Air Lock. Like you just said. I seen it many a time with those motors (truck driver here). I have seen them fight you time and again on bleeding air out as well, even having done it 8 times in a row, and taking 15 minutes.

What we used to do, is simply pull the air filters, and give her some Ether shots to get moving (rough idle) and get them to KEEP pulling fuel (and air too), and THEN bleed out the air. The point is to KEEP her running, and KEEP on bleeding, until she stops fighting you.

Worked every time. Though......don't empty much Ether into her, just AIN'T good for the cylinders, man! (I have seen some guys make those motors SCREAM off of 2 cans of Ether at once. The horror! The pain!) But the motors kept on motoring!

If you can keep her running off of just the Primer, then pump away dude, and bleed at the same time.......
