Problem with fuel pump

Unread post by DerekKlein » Fri Aug 29, 2014 8:55 am

I own a 2001 Ford Ranger with a 3.0 v6 engine and yesterday it had some trouble starting. It turns over and started putting a “Vroom....” sound. I don't recognize what happened. I opened out the bonnet and checked whether is there is any wire fused or not. But I didn't notice any mistake. So, today morning I took my car to a nearby car repair service centre and they found the issue was with the fuel pump. That's why the engine was not starting. Has anyone had any such similar experience?

not sure what you mean. having a problem starting? the noise you describe is difficult to decipher. do you mean the starter let go? the engine started to start? unclear what it is you are describing


I have a question for you though, what issue did they find with your fuel pump? did they do a fuel pressure test? did your truck not meet the fuel pressure requirements for your vehicle? was your fuel pump getting the proper power and ground connections?

Did you bring your car to a repair shop? Because they well test if the pressure gauge pump is not delivering the right amount of fuel to the engine, while someone else is reviving the car to a given speed.

Hey I also recently suffered from same problem. I bought Maruti Swift car some days ago. It was running good but after some days when I was going in a party. On the way My car suddenly get stopped than I get it repaired from a local repair shop. But after some days same problem came in front of me then I searched for a good auto body shop. I asked many of my friends and when I was searching on the internet for some good service providers. I call them and serviceman came to my home and repaired my car> Now it is running good. I am happy with their services.

Congrats, that you found a shop you can recommend to others. why would you look for a body shop if you have mechanical problem though? Just wondering...
