Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 97 toyota avalon lx w/3.0. I was driving down the road and the car died. It will turn over but won't start. I replaced the fuel pump, and even if i use starting fluid, it won't start. Also my check engine light will not come on, i replaced the bulb, still no light. My scanner just says link error. Does this mean i need to replace my ECU?

Why wont 97 expedition eddie bauer run after startup?


Have you checked the fuel pump for any blockage? The car isnt getting any gas unless u manually pump it by pressing the pedal.. So start there
Sometimes when a engine requires excessive revving and throttle to stay afloat its a fuel supply problem. A clogged filter for example can be overcome with excessive throttle that drives the fuel pressure up enough to force it through, but it will barely trickle at idle and stall.

Usually the dead give away for fuel pump is when someone complains they have to floor it as soon as it turns over or it will die right away.

I Have A 96 Toyota Avalon xl 3.0 Car Starts And Dies!! Replaced Fuel Pump Fuesl Filter And Still Starts And Stops?


I'm not 100% clear on exactly what isn't working from your question other than now the car is starting and dying after changing the fuel pump. In that case it's possible you've oppositely attached the positive and negative wires to the fuel pump. Hope this might solve part of your problems.

A 1998 gmc Sierra driving down road at 60 and it just died replaced ignition module and in line fuel filter and now It won't even try's to start


Have you checked the fuel pressure? I think that the fuel pressure is between 55 or 60 pounds. They won't run under 52 pounds.

97 toyota avalon xls 3.0 no fuel installed new fuel pump it started and then stalled ;no fuel pressure at fuel rail


if one of the o rings on the fuel pump moved when you installed the new pump that may cause you to have no fuel pressure. i have had the same problem once before and it was one of the o rings on the fuel pump. lubricate the o rings with vasaline before installing

97 honda accord lx keeps dying and won't stay on. I replaced the battery, alternator and starter. It turned on but just stayed on till it drained the battery. what could it be?


have someone turn the key while you listen for the fuel pump to come on in the fuel tank. it should only come on for a few seconds if not than your fuel pump is bad.
