Make sure that the brass bolt (main jet) that is actuated by the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor bowl is clean and clear. Shut off or drain the gas. Unplug the wire terminal plug on the solenoid. Unscrew the solenoid from the float bowl and examine carefully. All holes should be clear and the jet should be nice, clean and shiny. Use no metal objects on it to clean it.

Vehicle starts runs for 1-2 minutes then quits, Starts right up. Fuel is being shut down.


Also what no one is mentioning is to make sure you have oil pressure, or that the oil pressure sensor is working, alot of newer vehicles run the fuel pumps off of them oil pressure sensor so if your vehicle stops pumping oil and lubricating, it shuts the fuel pump off to protect itself from damage or further damage

Clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. Check fuel pressure before and after filter. Could also be a mass air flow sensor going bad or a air leak in the intake manifold.

1977 Porsche 924 New fuel pump and filter no gas just air.


I would check the fuel lines where they attach to the sending unit. The rubber inside of the nylon weave is probably rotten and sucking air instead of pulling the fuel up and out of the tank.

No gas going into the injectors or motor. i have spark and fuel pump is work vey good. pulled two spark plugs and smelled it and no scent of gas. thank you and God bless you


i didnt see any mention of fuel filter, maybe totally clogged, if pump is running and you can disconnect the line going from the filter to engine and have key turned on see if gas is coming through there.. maybe pump running but not pumping i have seen it before..

My 2000 ford contour wont start. Engine cranks, but seems no spark. I checked plugs and coil. Fuel pump kicks on and shuts off after primed. It just got harder and harder to start, finally it wont start.


Have you changed the fuel filter.

Your pump may be priming but the pressure could be against a clogged filter.

You might want to check the fuel pressur at the rail.
It might be a fuel pressure regulator problem

Fuel pump makes a stuck up noise, or maybe the fuel filter


|Hi there.
Niall In General Auto repair in Ireland here.
Maybe the fuel pump has broken and needs to be replaced.
Take it out and bench test it if it works remove the fuel filter and turn the ignition on but not the engine and see if fuel is being pumped up maybe it is only a blockage .
I Hope this helps.

When i start the car it idles ruff and dies sometimes the check engine light is on. It dies while trying to drive when you let off the throttle.


My friend, you seem to have fuel problems. the honda have an electric fuel pump inside the gas tank. it maybe old and does not develop enough fuel to the injectors that explains why it conks out.
first replace the fuel filter, it maybe clogged that fuel cannot flow anymore. if it still conks.
check the fuel pressure at the fuel filter it should develop 32psi or more. otherwise, replace the fuel pump.
the worse is that your injectors are contaminated with FOD, you have to replace the 4 injectors.
