It stalls while driving, when it first started happening it would re-start after a few minutes- now it won't start for quite a long time. We were told it was the fuel pump by two different mechanics, and so we replaced both the pump and fuel filter and it did not make any difference with the stalling problem. We have also used fuel injector cleaner, manually cleaned the fuel lines and are relativly sure it is not an electrical problem.


When it stalls, can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key back on? If you can, then the pump is good and the wiring is OK. If not, check the pump relay in the power distribution center. Did either of the mechanics that advised ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

P0087 p0088 the jeep is going in to limp mode,there is new lift pump fited , new fuel filter, two injectors was leaking i got them rebuild, i had change fuel presure regulator and still sometimes she is ging to limp mode.fuel presure is 5000kpa at 750rpm, 20000kpa at 3500rpm.why she is showing two codes p0087 fuel pressure to low, and p0088 fuel presurre to high.make no sens to me .


Code p0087 is pressure too low--- causes include fuel supply pipe blockage and code p0088 refers to fuel return line blockage. While you have changed every thing covered in the causes I suggest you have a look for a common point that the pipes run t ... 2005 Volvo XC90 D5

Have a 1999 chevy s-10 pick-up. when i turn the key on i can hear the fuel pump (do not know how much pressure it it making) turn on, my engine turns over but it won't start. when i spray starting fluid in single carb it will start run a few secound than stall, do i need a new fuel pump or change my gas filter, it only has one fuel injector and i can not see any fuel going into the carb any suggestion


I would start with the fuel filter for 2 reasons its cheaper than a fuel pump and if you can hear the pump working then it probabley is ok if you change the fuel filter and it still won't start then change the pump and you have a new pump and filter. ... 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

I have purchased a 1989 E350 and it has been sitting for about ten years. it was running when it was parked. It has the EFI 460 engine.I have a new fuel pump pulling and returning fuel to a five gallon jug because the other two tanks will have to be removed and cleaned.I have replaced the spark plugs and installed rebuilt fuel injectors.

DIY mechanic here some knowledge but just checkin for other possibilities.. my 2000 z24 turns over but won't fire up, has spark, fuel pump hums when the key is turned, but when i disconnected the fuel line from the injector rail, no fuel comes out when i start the car. can't see it being the filter cuz it was working fine one day, wouldn't start the next.. i could just be in denial cuz it's rusted bad and i can't see me getting the filter off without MAJOR difficulty.. filters usually slow over


If the filyter has collapsed inside, it could have also put undo stress on the pump and caused the impellor to have disintegrated. So you could be hearing a motor turning but not pumping. Saturate with a good rust penetrant and remove the filter. Not ... Chevrolet Cavalier

My two month old 2010 Q7 tdi suddenly died while driving. It was towed to the dealer and after two weeks I was told that the high pressure fuel pump had a part disintegrate sending shards of metal throughout the fuel system plugging all the fuel injectors. the repair took over 30 days and would have cost over $30000 if it had not been under warranty. audi has offered me a new car. Before I decide which Audi I want I want to know if anyone else has had this kind of catastrophic failure of t

Have fuel leak at injector probaly cracked line.some mechanic installed a new bosch injector pump and left out a lot of the clamps and insolators on the fuel lines. need service manual showing where to position them -also have to buy 2-injector lines plus the clamps and spacers. do i have to pay for any services rendered, question answered etc?? 2002 dodge diesel cummins engine[early model]


If i remember correctly the outer most lines from the pump should come off at the same time. The back half should do the same. They fallow the fireing order. The isolators are needed to keep vibration from rubbing the lines. Good luck. ... 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

My jeep liberty won't start. replaced the battery (although I didn't think that was the problem). The fuel pump is getting fuel, but it seems that the injectors won't work. it could be the security system not letting the fuel through the injectors. I want to rest the system to see if that solves the problem, but I need the procedure


If it was to be the security system you would not get the starter to crank so forget that idea. You need to start with checking the coils for spark and down the line after that. If the coil proves to be good nect is the ignition module.. Then the cra ... 2003 Jeep Liberty
