View Full Version : Car died on the road!!! Think it's my fuel pump.

I lost power to my fuel pump (I think) and my car died on the road tonight!!! It's not the battery, I still have lights, the car turns over, there's a spark (took out one of the coils to check), and the plugs were dry when I took them out after attempting to start the motor (they should be wet if there was fuel and I was not getting a spark. I then disconnected the fuel lines to my FPR and tried to start the car... no fuel squirted out from the feed line... thus I've come to the conclusion that my fuel pump is not getting any power (plus I can't hear it come on when I put the car in ON position)... let me know if I'm leaving anything out/if there is anything else I should check...

Before it died, it started to hesitate for a bit then I heard some clicking from inside the dash... more of an electrical clicking than a mechanical/inside engine click.

TIA for any help,

yep, and make sure your fuel pump relay didnt come loose, happened to a friend of mine. (or the purple/blk wire that goes to it)
