On July 6, 2009 my 1994 S10 Blazer had a fuel pump replaced. Then on July 21, 2009, on a trip back from Austin to Houston, I began to slow down at a light and my car almost died, and continued this every time I had to slow down. I had just begun my trip back from Austin, so I basically had to place the car in neutral and ride the gas and brake before proceeding ahead. Finally back in Houston, I had my car towed back to the repair shop July 22nd. They said the fuel pump they had installed was d

Car died out, there is gas in the car, fuel pump is ok, seems that gas is not being deliverd.when the car does start and you rev the gas it seem to bog down. We have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injection pressure sensor, and the torque converter turn off switch. The car starts right up sometimes and then stalls. Sometimes it starts and drives only to stall on the road. Sometimes it just doesn't start at all. Don't know any good reliable mechanics so if it's something simple we wou

Fuel I've replaced the main relay switch and fuel pump and fuel filter but still have the same problem. I can drive down the road for 5 min then the car dies, wait about 10 min and the car will start and go for anouther 5-10 min and dies again. What could it be???
It's an electrical problem, not mechanical (read: fuel filter is a good idea, but will not solve this symptom). \015\012\015\012My diagnostic efforts would be directed to the ignition system first,as the symptoms sound like igntion ... 1991 Honda Civic
Fuel issue I have a 2002 grand prix. Lately when I drive it I lose acceration going up hills when I hit the gas pedal the RPM goes up and I still lose power. Today when I came home I slowed down on to the road and it died I waited several minutes and got it to start. As long as I had my foot on the gas it was ok, once I let up and slowed down it died again? I am assuming a fuel problem, the mass air flow was replaced a year or so ago. Do you think the fuel filter or pump? Thanks Susan
On this on, begin by running a simple compression check on each cylinders, this comparison would tell if there is any mechanical damage to pistons, piston rings, cylinder walls, just to name a few items.Just from the facts you have provided, I wo ... 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
My 96 dodge neon randomly died on my while i was going down a 55 mph road. I replaced the fuel pump on it because i was told that was what was wrong with it. I located the fuel pressure gauge under the hood. Or at least thats what i think it is. I was told to unscrew the cap (it looks like where you put air into the tires) and push in the little knob inside it and gas should shoot out. gas just dripped out. It sounds like the fuel pump is working when i turn the key but dont start it. but my car
What you've found is the fuel pressure test port, not a gauge. It is the point to which you would attach a gauge to determine cranking fuel pump pressure.About all I can say at this point is that you probably don't have enough fuel press ... Dodge Neon
My n15 pulsar 1.6ltr wont start. I have replaced the fuel pump fuel filter and still nothing. when the car does start it goes for about half a kilometer and dies again. When i pulled the spark plugs out on the side of the road they were smokin hot and going white,as if the car was running lean. Any ideas out there?
Fuel problem thats for sure ,but would need to do a few tests to find problem ,best advice is to ask a local mecahnic for an opinion where he can stick his head under the bonnet ,my opinion for what its worth is either fuel pressure or the fuel injec ... Nissan Pickup
2003 Cadillac CTS-When stopping at a light the car would turn off but was able to restart. Car eventually died and would not restart. Had battery checked then replaced as the battery was bad. Once the new battery was put in the vehicle would not start nor would it take a jump. Had someone take a look at it and was told the fuel pump was bad. I replaced the fuel pump and filter along with an oil change. The car ran fine for a few days then died when coming to a stop. Car will not start or accept

The car ran out of gas, and after putting new gas in the car it started up then died. I took it to a mechanic he said he tapped on the fuel pump and it started right up, but suggested I replace the pump. Do I need to replace the pump or just get a new fuel filter? Where is the pump located? Do I need to take the gas tank off to get to the pump?
Yes. the pump has gone out on the car it is a comon problem on chevy's it is located in the fuel tank under the car. get ready to spend some money they ain't cheap and I would recomend replacing your fuel filter every other oil change because its the ... 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

I own a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2L V6 2WD. On saturday it died on me. at first i thought it might be the fuel pump because the engine turned over but wouldn't engage. Gas level was good as was the battery. Long story short, the fuse for my fuel pump blew. I replaced it and car started. Hoevwer, the same thing happened again this morning, once again replaced it and car has started. Before replacing it this time, i removed all the fuses and cleaned the area with some compressed air cleaner. Abou

98 firebird 3.8 engine died and would start back up. no fuel pump sound. replaced fuel pump and drove about 10 miles. car died and no pump sound. tpwed to yhe shop and the car started back up. no codes set or pending.
This is a common problem on GM vehicles. When this happens, look for a light on the dash somewhere that says SECURITY. If you see this, you have an antitheft security issue. It can accually turn off your starter, fuel pump, or injectors. Check out th ... 1996 Pontiac Firebird
1998 olds 88 won't start when car is parked on steep hill with nose down (fuel pump, fuel filter and pump screen have been replaced, and tank is full). Also, when driving car up hill with a steady pressure on the gas pedal, car will sputter and act as though it's running out of gas.
Test the fuel pressure. Should be 60 psi I believe. Remove gas cap and listen for sucking sound. Should not be any. If there is, then purge valve bad. ... 1998 Oldsmobile 88

I have a 2000 vw jetta that starts and then dies. My power steering pump pulley broke and the car stopped running. I replaced the power steering pump and the pulley an charged the battery. Now, the car wont start. Like there is something wrong with the fuel pump. It'll start but stall out immediately like it's not getting fuel. Like the fuel pump is bad. It was starting fine before the pulley broke. Is there some kind of reset switch for the fuel system?
No actually there isnt a reset for the system.. But something is wrong,, it starts then cuts off.. ok turn the ignition on and let it site for 10 seconds,, tumble,, and it should start.. If not then ,, remove the line connecting to the fuel filter fr ... Volkswagen Jetta
1999 Ford Taurus SW SE DOHC- my car will not start. The engine tries to turn over but it will not catch. Last week we were able to get it to turn over by spraying starter fluid into the manifold, but once the car warmed up it would die. Now it will not start at all. We replaced the fuel filter and it is still the same thing. I can hear my fuel pump priming when I turn the key (I believe). Any ideas? could it still be my fuel pump? We also checked the fuel pump regulator and had no fuel comi

Stalling I'm having a problem keeping this car running. sometimes it runs (idles) then dies when you try to drive it. Then it won't start again for hours or sometimes days. I have replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. The carb has just been rebuilt, the part that you adjust the idle with has been rebuilt, gas cap was replaced, fuel line from pump to carb was replaced and moved further away from engine block to prevent vapor lock, and the distributor coil was replaced about 6 months ago.

My daughters car died as she pulled into the driveway as though the fuel was shut off. i put 2 bottles of heat in the tank thinking it may have water in the tank as the car sat on empty while it was being sold. it has had no affect on starting the next thing i was going to check was to replace the fuel filter and check to see if the fuel pump was still working by turning the car on with a hose on the gass line to a bottle to see if it is pumping fuel. any sugestions? thanks David

My car continues to stall while going down the road and after sitting a few minutes it will start again. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel filter, plugs, plug wires, altenator, voltage regulator, cap, rotor, and the battery. Do you know what could be causing the car to stall? I have a suspicion the fuel pump relay is faulty. What's your thoughts and how can I test the relay?

Fuel Reg........ I'm stumped. Car starts, runs great, dies when I make a left turn. Seems to starve for fuel. Right turns are fine. Should fuel system maintain fuel pressure even after car sitting for a while? I checked pressure at fuel rail service port. sometimes it is pressurized, other times nothing, is that normal, and what are the symptoms of a failing fuel regulator? Replaced fuel pump motor recently but wondering if I might have an internal leak within the fuel pump module, which might b
