Your fuel pump only runs for 2 seconds with the key on, unless it is running. Safety reasons. It runs during starting all the time, and all the time if engine is running.
check fuel pump relay in driver kick panel and inertia switch reset in trunk. Se owner manual for info.

SOURCE: no fuel pressure on 2.9 litre ford ranger

is the pumps running have you checked fuel comes out of it? if it does you will have to move on further along fuel line check next connection (fuel filter maybe) check there is stuff coming through there. Next goto other side of filter check there. Just go along the fuel line checking for fuel pressure. if there is fuel going all the way to the rail check the pressure regulator it may be stuck open therefore the gas would be getting pumped to the rail and going straight back to the tank i.e. no pressure.

SOURCE: low fuel rail pressure, warning

the fuel rail is on top of the engine. look for the injectors the rail is the metal fuel line that supplys fuel to all the injectors. you can also find a fitting on this rail that a pressure gauge can be screwed onto. it should have a black cap on it. kinda looks like a valve stem like for the tires. but you may have a faulty pressure regulator. a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. replace pump last. it will be more expensive.

2003 Sonata 2.7-b. When I start it idles for 15 seconds and then cuts off.If I try to excelerate it choke and cut off.Ignition ON the fuel pump works and the fuel gushes out the fuel rail. 430kkm.

Connect a pressure gauge in the fuel line Check pressure and flow , if pressure is low check , leaks, pressure relief valve or regulator, fuel pump. If pressure is high and flow is low replace fuel filter, the fuel pressure must hold with the engine stopped , if not replace non return valve or fuel pump.

Why do I have so much air in the fuel rail on a 1999 ford 4.0

There shouldn't be air in the fuel rail. If the fuel coming out of the rail is coming out in spurts, looking like air, it is most likely due to low fuel pressure

1999 cadillac Seville won't start only whrn spraying throttle body cleaner . I got spark and fuel on fuel rails with pressure what else y check

The fact that it will start with the throttle body cleaner means that the PCM is attempting to start the engine. The fact that there is fuel at the rail and there is pressure may be misleading. There may not be ENOUGH pressure at the rail to do the job. Check the fuel pressure regulator....pull the vacuum line off the regulator. If there is any fuel in the line, the regulator is faulty and must be replaced. This is the most likely candidate.

My 1999 ford escort is not getting enough gas to the engine

Your going to want and check fuel pressure to see if its in spec. If fuel pressure is low...I would check for a restriction.. like a plugged fuel filter or weak fuel pump.

I was driving home from work when my 1999 escort started to lose power and the low fuel light came on. It felt like it was going to die but then the power kicked in and I was able to get home but the low...

Check for a plugged fuel filter,after you check the fuel cap is on correctly. If that's not the problem,it could be the fuel pump. You can get the fuel pressure read at the rail by any reputable shop. don-ohio
