1991 subaru legacy. The car would not start. I change the fuel filter and tapped on the fuel pump. It started. A few days later same thing. Tapped on the fuel, worked again. A few days later same thing. Now it won't start. Change the fuel pump, still won't start. Turned on the ign. the pump does not prime. Are there fuses to check or relays, something?


You should have a fuse & a relay. Check # 11 fuse it should be 15 amp.& may be for your fuel pump. Do you have owners manual by chance, or does cover of fuses have label? ... 1991 Subaru Legacy

Got a Saturn SL2 that has been sitting fo awhile. Started it three months ago and it started just fine. Tried it today at it cranks but does not fire. Poured gas into throttle body and it runs until the gas is gone. Tried to switch relays and no sucess. Checked the fuel pump fuse at it was blown, tried a larger fuse and it does not blow yet still no running. Any ideas? Got a medium level or mechanic ability-best ot change the fuel pump outright at this point?

I have a Saturn SL2 95' just had the engine, fule pump, fule pump relay, and fule filter replaced. They all have been tested and work fine. But the car still won't run, because the fule pump isn't getting power. When I hot wire the possitive charge of the battery to the fuel pump wire, the pump begins to work and you can even start the car and it will run for as long as you give it power. So everything works, I'm just not getting any power to the fuel pump. Any help? I keep reading about this ki

Vehicle will not start, it seems as if it is not getting any fuel. I have already changed the fuel pump relay and the fuel filter. I then charged the battery for about a half an hour and the car started. I let it run for 15 minutes then shut it off and restarted no problem. About 5 hours later I tried to start it again and it would not start. There is spark in the ignition so that is not the issue. After recharging the battery again to make sure it was not a weak battery it still would not start


Check to see if you are getting power to the fuel pump with a test light when you turn the key on.It will only have power for about 2 seconds and then go off if you don`t crank it.If you have power then you can spray some carb.or brake cleaner into t ... 1999 GMC Suburban

Hi, my 97 chevy truck has intermittent problems. It runs fine most of the time but sometimes it wont start and the fuel pump wont kick in. But then a few minutes later when I try it, it runs. Sometimes when im driving it will all of a sudden just quit and then fire up as im still in motion. it will do that a couple of times and then die. so then i'll pull over to the side of the road and check things out. tap on my fuel pump relay sometimes or disconnect the wire harness to the fuel pump and rec

So somone jumped my girlfriends 2002 Saturn SC2. crossed the wires and now big problem. after an investigation no fuses are popped wiring looks ok and car will turn over but will not start. I noticed that the fuel pump is not spooling up. cannot hear it but swapped fuse and relay and still nothing. now some people are saying possible fusible link is blown? is there one on this car i dont know. Is it the ECU? Could the fuel pump be blown? im hoping its not the pump cuz thats a big pain to change


If they crossed the jumper leads what they have done is put 24 volts instead of 12 volts into your vehicle & most likely caused serious damage to most of the electric components in you vehicle,you have got one big headache, you may need to go to ... 1993 Saturn SC2

2000 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo wont start. Engine turn over . No noise from fuel pump with ignition on. Replaced fuel pump and filter.Turn ignition on- pump did not run.Jumped the fuel pump at the pump relay.Pump worked and pressurized fuel rail. Still no start.

I have a 83 280zx non-turbo which quit running. Heard pulsating noise at fuel pump relay (kicking in and out) under dash passenger side. Replaced relay, still does same thing. Replaced water temperature sensor, pulsating goes away but relay kicks out almost immediately. Can hot wire fuel pump to get it to start but this method is not very safe.

When you change these fuel filters, they are basically gravity fed from the tank if the tank is full enough.You sometimes have to just hurry up in the fuel filter install process and slip that filter back in quickly, a little bit(sometimes more) will ... 2002 Saturn VUE
