Q: Car won't start after replacing fuel pump

asked by on

The car will not start after replacing the fuel pump.

Hi there. If the car was running fine prior to the pump being replaced, then you may have a defective pump. If the same problem was occurring before the fuel pump was replaced, then there may be a circuit problem. A mechanic would start by checking for voltage at the fuel pump to see if it is present. If it is, then the pump is the issue, if not, then there may be a problem in the fuel pump relay or an issue with the control module. The issue may not be fuel related either. It might be a bad crank position sensor, which is common on this vehicle. If this is something that you plan on having repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can inspect the starting issue your vehicle is experiencing.
