Hi, Have a 93 2.5 liter deisal Pajero. Pulling out of garage, went three feet and stopped. Motor turns over, but will not start. Using pump on filter can get fuel at the return line

Check and verify the pickup low pressure fuel pump inside the fuel tank is working, it will run anytime the key is in the crank position or the engine is running, should make a low pitched whirring noise, best heard with the fuel fill cap removed and ear down to the fill tube..

2003 Chevy impala have a electrical problem. Something is draining the battery, checked alternator,fuses,starter. All is good bought a new battery and in 4 hrs it went from 600 cranking PS to 240.

This must be a light bulb on somewhere, have done hundreds of cars for this problem, and with a few exceptions only a light bulb draws enough current to run the battery down that fast. Check everywhere and do it in the evening. Check the sun visor lights, check the trunk light, hood light interior lights like glove box and console. I have found just a few exceptions to this, one is the electric fuel pump is running due to a sticking relay, the other is the Alternator. has a defective diode and is shorting to ground slowly. Make sure the fuel pump is not running, it makes a humming noise best heard with the gas cap removed. Disconnect the Alt. as well and see what happens if all the lights are checked and no issue found.

Driving car on freeway heard a ping car dies out. Car wont turn over. Changed gas fuel in in gas tank, still wont turn over, changed the crank shaft sensor and still wont turn over but the is getting gas...

turn over or run
turning over is cranking but not starting/running
not turning over indicates seized motor , bad battery starter motor problems , bad ground
turning over is cranking but not starting ---broken timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , no fuel , no spark , no injector operation
best run the fault codes as the fauty will be recorded there

Both fuel relay fuses making clicking noises under hood in 2001 dodge 2500 v8

the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.

2001 Chevrolet Malibu cranks but will not start and is also draining my battery have checked the fuses and filters and battery so far nothing can anyone help me?

the motor is cranking. that tells us you have a good starter and battery. now we need to see if the fuel pump works and if you have spark. what you need to do is turn the key to the start position and see if you hear a buzzing noise from the gas tank. if you hear a buzzing noise the pump is good. have to see if you have spark. is the check engine light on

Loud humming noise from under my Tahoe 2 WD

Is it closer to the back of the vehicle or the front?Possibly the fuel pump. Try opening the gas tank and stick your ear close to the intake of the tank while someone turns the key.

My Montro cranks but will not start

there could many different problems. do you have any check engine codes? if so have them checked out, because a sensor may have failed causing the engine not to start. then you need to check the fuel pump. stand by the fuel tank and have someone turn the key on, but dont start the car. listen very closely you should hear a small electric motor run for about 5 sec. if you dont hear anything, check the fuse and the relay. when you turn the key on the relay should make a fairly loud click. if no sound is heard the relay needs to be replaced. if you still dont hear the motor your fuel pump has failed.

My car will not start. it is not the battery, it

turn the key on( DONT CRANK IT) and listen near the fuel tank for a humming noise, it sould last about 3-5 sec, you are listinging for the fuel pump. If nothing is heard have your fuel pressue checked, chances are the electric fuel pump in the gas tank has failed.

Cars turns over, but will not start

fuel pump??? two ways to test one good, one not so good. fist, without cranking over the motor, have someone go and listne in the back where the fuel tank is and try and here if there is a whirring sound when the key is put in the on position. you might not be able to here it. second (have a rag handy) undo one of the fuel lines and see if there is any pressure going to it = if none = dead fuel pump. third way....if it is easy to access the top of the fuel tank where the pump is, do so. remove pump and see if it works. also, if its an externally mounted pump, gently tap it with a wrench on the outside of the pump casing...this an actually make them work for a short time.
