SOURCE: running fine then now wont start, fuel pump or

More likely the fuel pump.........check for power to the pump on the gray wire at the fuel pump connector at the tank.(wires from the tank)You should see a prime cycle voltage as you turn the key on...if the key has been off 15 seconds. If you see a test light, light.......change the fuel pump.
Tip....a lot of relays are the same in the relay center....switch the fuel pump relay for one of the (same) others to test it if needed.

Before you do this....sit in the car and turn on the key to run.....not start.......do you hear the pump do it's prime cycle?
Total silence means.......in 99% of cases...a new fuel pump is needed.
If you hear it.......no pump should be needed....look elsewhere first.

Gm Troubleshoot I have no fuel pressure with a replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure relief value, and a new oil pressure switch. When I replace the oil pressure switch the 2000 z71, 5.3L started...


Check the fuse and fuel relay. Relay is located in electrical center under the hood on the driver side. The relay and fuse legend will be on bottom side of the protective cover. You can test it by exchanging it with another relay that you know works, (horn relay, etc.).

With the key OFF, listen carefully for a slight whirring / buzzing sound for 5+ seconds or so when you turn the key to on / run. This sound is the fuel pump running. If you hear it run, then it is most likely pumping fuel - but is blocked somewhere (crushed line?). You could disconnect the fuel line to verify fuel delivery while the pump is running if you need to. If you don't hear it; check for 12V + and GROUND at the pump. Remember, the pump only runs for a few seconds when the key is in the run position with the engine NOT running, so power will be there for a few seconds only. Check for loose / poor (+) and ground lead connections as they can cause this problem too.

Good luck!

1994 Ford Taurus GL 3.0L will not start. Cooling fan and fuel on constantly with key In "on" position. Has new relay control module. Check engine light does not come on when key is on.


I have always heard that a constantly running fuel pump and cooling fan is an indicator that your ecu is going bad, horrible words to hear i know but definitely do some research on this and if it is the problem luckily there are decent finds in scrap yards to be had for little money. hope this helps and sorry about the bad luck :(

It takes about 8-10 times of trying to start up my 2000 mitsubishi galant in the morning(the first start of the day) but during the day when the car is in use and the engine is warm it starts up easily...


Three things might do this. You did'nt say what year model or engine size to the answer is'nt your car specific. The car does run with the check engine light out? If it's running with the light on, you can stop at an auto parts store and they can check to see why the light is on. The coolant temperture senser can make the engine contol computer (think) that the engine is warmer than is is and not shoot enough fuel to keep the engine running good as it's cold . The engine takes less fuel to run hot and theirfore it runs OK. the fuel filter or the fuel pump could not be letting enough fuel pressure to get to the motor and again as the engine warmes up it needs less fuel and runs OK. Sometimes peaple put high octane fuel in an engine that does'nt need it and the high octane fuel burns slower and when the engine is cold it doesn't make as much opresure so it's harder to keep running but as it warme the presures of combustion are higher and the engine runs just fine. If the oil weren't change don the regular time and the oil is old the engine compression might be a lot less than it would be with good oil and the engine may have to warm to have good compression tp run well. If this is the case the oil may need to be changed a few times to get it clean enough to run well.

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
