Fuel problem

Recommended Posts

Guest

I've got a '99 Alero that I'm having a problem with. When I turn the key I can hear the fuel pump come on and the car will start but only runs for only 2 to 3 seconds then shuts off. It will continue that way as many times as I try to get it going. Could it be the fuel pressure regulator? The car is a 2.4L 4 cylinder. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

One way to diagnose fuel pump is tie a pressure gauge into it at the filter (if I'm not mistaken some vacuum gauges can also be used for pressure measuring. I just had this problem with an 88 Blazer and after giving up, the guy I hired found the fuel pump only capable of 7 psi (just barely enough to idle).
