1990 toyota celica fuel problem. It appears to be flooding. When cranking, if it has been sitting for a while, it fires for just a second, and then dies. When the fuel pump is unplugged, and engine cranked (after cranking with fuel pump connected), the engine almost starts. As soon as the pump is re enabled, it floods again, and wont start. We have plenty of spark, with new plugs. Spark is verified. Compression is 130 in 1 and 3 cylinders, and about 60 and 90 in the other 2. This shouldn'

The car will only start for a few seconds and then it will die. It is a 3.4 liter V6 with multi-port injectors. The fuel pump is pumping gas up to the engine but it acts like when you start it after a few seconds it just dies like there is no gas. We had the codes read and nothing came up. It is a 1993 Chevy Camaro.

Engine starts everytime and runs for a few seconds then dies. It seems like the fuel pump is cutting out as soon as the engine starts and when all the gas in the fuel rail is used up it stalls, but I can hear the pump running after it stalls. I replaced the fuel filter and the pump and I can hear the Fuel pump relay clicking. What shoul I check next?

My 91 Isuzu Pickup quit day like it had run out of gas, but I had just filled it. I can start it but it dies about 45 sec. . I pulled the pump and it works. After I put pump back in I looked to see if any fuses might be the cause. Everything seemed to be OK . I started engine and it kept running. I drove it about a mile came home and it died. Because I had been messing with fuse and relay box last I tapped on lid of box and it started and ran. How do test relays , is that really what my problem

Just changed the fuel pump in 2005 Jeep liberty, after car wouldn't start and discovered it had no fuel pressure. Once the pump was changed car started right up and ran fine for about half a day, then the engine light came on and car will not start again. Checked the fuel pressure and it's fine and you can hear the pump come on. Car acts like it wants to start then just dies. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

98 buick lesabre oil pressure dropped to 0 and engine died. added 1 quart oil, waited 30 minutes, started and drove 5 miles then oil pressure dropped to 0 and engine died. does this sound like a bad oil pump? where is the oil pump and is it hard to change for a "handy" person? thank you.

91 plymouth grand voyager dies when it warms up to operating temperature then starts and runs normally after cooling a little while. Replaced fuel filter and coil. Fuel still has pressure after it dies so fuel pump is working. This model has no pickup coil and ignition module appears to be in Engine control module. Is timing picked up by crackshaft sensor? What is the most likely culprit. Engine control module is $179.00 so would like to exhaust all other possibilties first.

Chevy C-1500 dies after running for a while. Sounded like fuel pump was erratic - shut off - then engine died. The truck will start right back up and die again after a minute or two. Temperature outside is in high 80 to 90 degrees. I have changed fuel pump relay and am dreading going after the pump without being sure it is the problem. Any ideas?

It will restart and then do it again in a few minutes. It will eventually die and will take longer to start. All the interior accessories work and all dash lights and gages work. You will then hear the relays and fuel pump come on and you can start it again. Then it will die again in a few minutes, let it set with key

The problem seems to be getting worse, I have about 85k on the engine and besides the stopping periodically I
