I was going through an intersection, about to accelerate. when I pushed on
the gas it felt like something disconected. My engine was still running
but no acceleration. I pulled over shut car off tryed to start again but
it sounds as if its not getting any fuel. When i turn the key it turns
over makes all the regular sounds to start except one. The sound were it
gets fuel and holds the idle. Could this be my fuel pump went out?????
First thing I would do is replacing fuel filter. Also, check system
pressure with a gauge. If pressure is low, restrict the flow in the
fuel return line to see if pressure increases, in that case the
pressure regulator could be bad. Good luck,
First thing I would look for is the fuel inertia switch and
try resetting it. You owners manual should have the
location. It is a safety switch designed to shut off the
fuel in the event of a collision but, they sometimes
activate on a pothole or, for no obvious reason at all.
