Fuel pump cut out on Freeway Cruising? (not sure)

Recommended Posts

I was cruising along this morning about 85 or so and it felt like my fuel pump just cut out. I cruised to the side of the road, engine did not die until I put it into neutral, which is why my guess is fuel.

No sounds, no error codes, nothing.

I tried starting it back up immediately, and it would not.

I called AAA for a tow, and sat on hold of course, so I tried again a few minutes later and it started right up.

I made it where I was going and back home this afternoon. I did push it a little on the way home as I'd rather pick the time it dies if it does it again.

Any other thoughts?

I would check your fuel pump relay and fuse to start.

Not sure if the last part was clear... is started up again. I drove. When I say I pushed it on the way home, I mean I drove it hard. It felt fine.

Should I still test the relay, or should I just wait for whatever it is to just go out?

since you have no codes and your up and running drive it until it happens again .Also If you dont have an extra relay you might want to get one to keep in your glove box.Its cheep insurance.

Thanks for the help. It wouldn't start late yesterday and this morning... I jumped the FP relay, and it started right up.

Also, I tried activating it on my Durametric, but it did nothing. Am I doing something wrong, or do I have to have to pro version?

If it were mine I would put a relay in it. By jumping the relay and it started you proved that it has an intermittent issue or its gone south as of now.
