If you open and close the door, do you hear the pump prime?
So I was driving home from work yesterday and the car just cuts off at the light. I try to start it and it only turns over, so I know its not the battery and the starter. I know there is a few threads on this but they are older ones and was just wanted to know how many of you guys have had to replace the fuel pump. I only have 40k on the car and had it towed to the shop to have this confirmed on Monday.
I've had the fuel pumps replaced three times at the dealer. It got so bad that the car would shut off while driving on the high way numerous times. :bang head: I'm back up to running and problem free now. It was a long battle to get them to find the pump bad as it was never throwing any codes to lead to the pump.
I've been having trouble starting it after it's been baking in the sun for hours. I hear the pump prime (or at least I hear the relays go), but it doesn't crank cleanly. Give it a second crank and it usually sputters up (sounds crappy, not normal start), but then it seems to run OK... I'm thinking it's just minor vapor lock but i don't know?
