Check the label and then the wiring on the motor to see if you are wired 120 or 240 first. If you are supposed to get 240 and are getting 120, the motor will run @ 1/2 speed for a little while and then shut off. If this continues, your motor will short out. If your motor is getting 240 volts while running, you have a bad motor.

    Check the start switch. Do not need a new motor for that. May just be corroded.

Corolla NZE. It runs for a few secs when starting then shuts off. What's wrong?

Could be that your fuel pump is going bad? Have the fuel pump pressure checked, the average fuel pump pressure is around 40 to 45 PSI, anything less and the car will stall or stop.

My 95 gmc wont start when hot

check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks it may divert the fuel when warmed up,check all vacuum hoses for cracks if you think it's bad change it. turn key on and wait 30 sec.then crank and see what happens,fuel pump may be getting hot.if you can check fuel pressure at the rail for at least 35 can do this by removing the schrader valve and attach a hose with should be able to hear the fuel pump for a few sec.when you turn the key on. try this when cold then hot see if you notice a seems to relate to a fuel problem.hope this helps,dave

Unit starts with normal screen,. pump motor doesn.t start and specticle shaped figure flashes next to Systolic upper LH corner. of display. Flashes for approx 5 secs and turns off.. Changed batteries same...

Motor is burned out, wires to motor are not connected. The pump MUST start to begin the sequence of "events". Repair or replacement is necessary!

Most likely the pump, but as I've said before, messing with gasoline is very dangerous and dhould be avoided except for those with good skills and uncommon common sense. A pressure test would be best. Unless you have access to a fuel pressure tool, you'd be guessing, and this is something not to be second guessed.The regulator can only be tested with a gauge.
Here may be a simple, easy way to check your pump:
Open the trunk and have an assistant turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the car. Listen carefully and do this several times. If you immediately hear a light whirring sound eminating from under the trunk, then the electric fuel pump is working. If it does not come on immediatley when the jkey is turned, then there is a fault. If it is fairly LOUD, then it is laboring and may be cutting out or hesitating during the initial start.

Hyundai 2003 Santa Fe 2.7V6 - engine turns over fine, doesn't seem to be getting fuel immediately. Eventually it starts after 5 or 6 seconds of turning over. Suspect fuel filter or fuel pump?

Initially I would agree fuel pressure had dropped off after shut down. This fuel filter is a sock screen attached to the fuel inlet tube of the fuel pump and is located inside the fuel tank with the fuel pump. This screen is rarely the cause. You'll need a fuel pump pressure gauge to verify the low fuel pressure at start up. Caution, sometimes this low pressure isn't a faulty pump, sometimes it's a poor wiring connection to the pump motor. An analog amp meter can verify if there is fluctuation/ing current flow to the fuel pump. A fluctuating current flow could mean poor connections, or could mean the pump has/is gone/going bad.

We pulled the fuel line at the engine and only a small amout of gas seem to come out when cranking the engine

Check voltage at fuel pump with key on will only have voltage at pump for about 3 sec. to check turn key off and back on 3 sec to check voltage, do as many time to you need to check, if you do have voltage, bad fuel pump, no pressure.

2003 Jetta, starts and shuts off after 5-10 sec.

i think you have to have the fuel pump checked. it seems that its not pumping enough gas to the engine so it shuts off after burning the remaining fuel in the line.

No longer hearing the "whirr" of the electric fuel pump

if this is a no start then the next step is to pull the gas tank and replace the fuel pump module, the fact you heard the pump in many cases means the pumps shaft bearings were worn out, they are pretty silent for the most part.
