The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

    Car will to start. Car does crank over but will not start. All electrical components have been replaced. New fuel pump, new spark plugs, new ignition modular, still won't start. I've had to certified mechanics look at car and no one can find the problem. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. It is not the security system.

    Yup my fuel pump is going out. But the person who drove it before me never serviced the fuel filter. SO CHANGE IT!!!
