On some cars the "Main Relay" turns off the fuel pump.
Check the Relay and fuse.
Hope this helps.

Can you hear the fuel pump running? Just lay under the car or take the seat out and have someone turn the key on to see if the pump can be heard. You can take this pump out from inside of the car because it has an access plate in the floor. Just use a brass punch and hammer to spin the locking ring off.

I have a 2001 ford taurus and it ran out of gas. It wont start after i put gas in it


  • Assuming you put enough gas in the tank to turn the car over (2 gallons is a good start) and assuming the gas cap is on good and tight then it sounds like in drying up the tank you put all the containments sitting at the bottom of your gas tank into the fuel pump sock and it is now clogged. Changing the fuel pump is that fix.
  • You may want to check the fuel filter too first before the whole dropping the gas tank to get to the fuel pump scene. Its possible the fuel filter has got really clogged and will not let fuel pass. They can go just like that if it has been several thousand miles since last changing it. The fuel filter for this vehicle is on the passenger side rail, about midway, on the undercarriage of the car. The fuel line coming from the fuel pump leads right to it.
  • Of course check the battery connections too.

Regards, Tony

Car will crank but will not start


First check you are getting spark to plugs. If yes check for fuel. You can spray starting fluid in intake when you pull off intake rubber hose that sits on top of engine. If you start momentarily you have fuel problems. Turn key forward just where its left after you start. Listen for fuelpump to whine back by gas tank filler. If no noise most likely fuelpump. Always change fuel filter right after its install.

CHECK FUEL PUMP FUSE AND RELAY.IF BOTH GOOD LISTEN FOR FUEL PUMP RUNNING IN GAS TANK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE IGNITION SWITCH.YOU HEAR NO SOUND.SCAN VAN FIRST FOR PCM FAULTS SINCE IT CONTROLS FUEL PUMP IF PCM GOOD.FUEL PUMP IS BAD.IF FUEL PUMP RUNNING REPLACE FUEL FILTER.

2000 FORD FOCUS IS SPUTTERING


is it sputtering like you're running out of gas? does it do it all the time? or mainly going uphill or
when the fuel is around a 1/4 tank? you may have a bad fuel pump or a clogged fuel pump filter or pre-filter in the
tank. may want to check ... there is a redesigned pump available ... it may also be covered under a
factory warranty. of course, if this is what's causing your problem. good luck

My 2001 Ford Focus ran out of gas last while heating up in my driveway. I put around 2 gallons of gas in the tank this morning and it turns over but the car will not crank. I changed the fuel filter and...


now what it will not start? Sprey starting fluid (small amount in the air cleaner while another person starts the car this will prime the pump)
