No Gas, No Go | Wichita Auto Repair

If your fuel pump is broken, your car will be hard to start. Tracy’s Automotive can get your car going again.

You were planning on taking the kids to to the Cosmosphere but your car has been acting funny the past few days. It’s been hard to start and, once you get it started, it runs rough and occasionally dies. You’re not sure what’s going on.

Diagnosing starting problems can be tricky because, as says, “There are a host of issues that could prevent a car from starting.”

But one of the first things you should check is the gas. A car that has no gas isn’t going to get very far. Likewise, an engine that isn’t getting the fuel that’s in the tank is not going anywhere. The fact that you can get the engine started but that it sputters and dies is one indication that your car is struggling to get fuel. It could mean that you need a new fuel pump.

“A simple method to check if a fuel pump is turning on is to listen for it,” according to “Open the fuel door, remove the fuel cap (if your car has one), and turn the car’s ignition to ‘On.’ Put your ear next to the fuel door and listen for a humming noise. If you don’t hear any noticeable action, the pump is likely not working.”

If you think you have a fuel pump problem, you still need to narrow the possible cause. Among the questions you should ask – Is the fuel pump fuse bad? Is the fuel pump relay fuse bad? Is there a poor connection on the fuel pump? Is the fuel filter clogged? Are the fuel injectors clogged? Is the fuel pressure in range? Does the fuel cap have a clean reliable seal?

The easiest way to handle the situation is to take your car to a trusted Wichita auto repair technician like the reliable Wichita auto repair specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.
