SOURCE: Where is the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire SE fuel filter?

Dear Oilzum, The fuel filter on most cars of that era are back by the fuel tank(where supply line comes out of tank), and usually on the inside of the frame. Find the fuel line from the tank towards the engine and you will find the fuel filter. Most are around 6 inches long and 3 inches around. Call me back if you need more help. quicbric(volvo man)

SOURCE: sunfire will not start, it started for a second or

Have somebody listen at the gas cap for a buzzing sound when the ignition switch is turned on, or if you can hear it, it only does it for a few seconds, if you don't hear it, the pump is bad and the gas tank has to be dropped to change it.
This is not recomended, but I do it all the time to make sure the problem is in the fuel system. Spray a little bit of starting fluid in the intake, if it starts, the problem is in the fuel system, but listen for the buzz sound first.
Other problem could be a clogged fuel filter, or a faulty fuel pressure regulator. Have a fuel pressure test done, that would also reveal the problem, if it's a fuel problem.

SOURCE: 98 pontiac sunfire fuel pump

This has NOTHING to do with the fuel pump, and EVERYTHING to do with the security system. The problem is either in your key, ignition/lock cylinder, or TDM (theft deterrent module) AKA the "computer" or "brain". When the security doesnt read the key properly it goes into anti theft mode, The vehicle thinks its being stolen so it shuts off parts of the car. In your case the fuel or injectors. This is just a communication problem, the hard part is determining which part is failing. If it were my car, id just bypass the whole system. Check out this link. Tons of info, symptoms, and "DO IT YOURSELF" solutions. The answer to your problem IS on this site. Good luck

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump

GM doesn't use a fuel pump shut off switch, the safety system works like this, fuel pump is turned off if the engine oil pressure goes to zero with the key in the run position. Ford uses a shut off switch that is activated by an impact exceeding 3 G's (3X the force of gravity), it is called the fuel pump shut off inertia switch.

WELL COULD BE FUEL PUMP. STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER,WATER IN THE FUEL.FAULTY IGNITION MODULE.FAULTY CAMSHAFT SENSOR,FAULTY CRANKSHAFT SENSOR.FAULTY IDLE SPEED CONTROL. MANY THINGS CAN CAUSE VECHICLE TO SHUT DOWN. BEST TO HAVE VECHICLE SCANNED WITH CODE SCANNER.THAT WAY IT WILL HELP PIN POINT PROBLEM QUICKER SO YOU WONT SPEND LOTS OF MONEY BUYING TOO MANY NEW PARTS.

2002 Pontiac Sunfire shuts off by its self. Has only done it a couple times. Starts right back up and works fine. Any ideas?


Replace the fuel filter as soon as you can. This is the early signs of a dirty fuel filter and when it get's to the end of it's life, you'll not be able to restart the car. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100% and will add life to your fuel pump. Good luck and keep me posted.

98 pontiac Sunfire shuts self off


You might not need a tumble, the sys is controled by the key, and transponder, and the ecm. Most auto locks smiths can come out and check the system, might just need a key re-programed

I would recommend having the ignition module tested. I have had one of these vehicles with the same problem and that is what fixed it.
