I chaged the fuel filter and it started up and drove away got about a mile down the road it died on me what might be the problem
twice the car wouldn't start. when left overnight car started right up... new fuel pump installed
The car won't start and there is no noise of any kind. The battery tests fine. This has happened multiple times since purchase in 2003.
car was cutting out and after I parked and came out later it turned over but would'nt start. I just got it out of the shop cost $360.00.
Tries to start but can't. Mechanic said probably fuel pump. To extend the life, he suggested turn the key on but don't start and count to 6; turn key off; turn key on for count of 6 and then start and it cranks right up. Depends on how bad it is as to how long this will work. Hope it gets me to Jan or Feb. 2015!!
It just died on me. cost $460 for the whole pump and
electical. couldn't just buy the pump alone.
Ran out of gas dumped in a gallon. But wouldn't restart. Engine will crank and crank but wouldn't start
My 99 Chevy Lumina is actually a 3.8L V6. Recently had fuel pump module- not any assembly parts like the harness and ect-replaced. Car ran normal and started normal but while driving it would stall at stops. After a while the car wouldn't start unless I wiggled the fuel pump harness wires under car near where connector to pump is located. It worked temporarily beings now it wont start at all. The harness connector to pump is a discontinued gm part so I couldn't buy a new one anywhere. Not sure where to go from here and desperately need help to get my car running please!
I am just trying to comment about the running out of fuel problem. Do not add 1 gallon. Add at least 2 . I dont know why usually 1 gallon is not enough to start a car that ran dry.
