Check three things: Fuel pump relay, and fuel pump inertia cut off safety device if equiped. check for 12 volts at the fuel pump to rule out faulty connector or wiring.

Plus you need to check if the fuel injector if stuck open and also the fuel pressure regulator.

this is on a 2000 Kia Sportage and no cut off safety switch,where is the pressure regulator located

Unfournately, those are signs that your engine is worn and will need to be rebuilt, or replaced. Those are signs of worn rings your probably getting little or no compression.

1996 thunderbird 3.8 why is the oil pressure high?

It is normal for the oil pressure to be high when the engine is first started and is cold. It should settle at around 40 psi once the engine reaches full operating temperature. If it does not, then change the oil and filter and make sure you are using the correct weight oil, which is more than likely 5w30. Use a good oil filter such as Purolator, Wix, or Motorcraft in your Ford. Make sure to use the correct size filter. If none of this helps, then have an oil pressure test run, as your oil pressure gage may be wrong.

When Ford F-250 5.0 engine turns over no fuel is getting to engine all 3 fuel pumps are working?

Just because you hear the pumps hum does not mean they are working. Also, where is the third pump? There should only be two, one in each tank. I am not aware of an F250 with a high pressure frame rail pump, how old is the truck? Have you pulled the fuel filter and checked for restriction? What happens when you pull the line off and turn the key on? Does fuel come out? When you say no fuel is getting to the engine, do you mean you have no fuel pressure, or the injectors aren't spraying anything? Could it be that fuel is getting to the fuel rail but the injectors are not firing? Could it be that you are getting some fuel pressure, but not enough fuel pressure? What if your fuel guage is wrong, and you have two empty fuel tanks? These are questions you need to answer to eliminate things down to your cause.

Your oil pressure light is stopping on while engine is running have just changed oil and filter used correct filter and oil 10-40w?

If your oil pressure light comes on while engine is at an idle, maybe 10-40 is too low of a viscosity for your engine. I'd go to a 20-40 or 30-50 and see how the oil pressure does. make very sure you have the correct filter, some "factors" did for a while produce the wrong filter for certain vauxhall engines, these filters did not have a bypass and would cause light to come on, would couse catastrophic engine loss if not sorted. suggest recheck filter and obtain one from main dealer if not already done so. possible blocked oil pick up pipe in sump ,not uncommon if infrequent oil changes ..............PS i had this problem you made need to change the oil pressure monitor switch just on the top, front of the engine, it also appears to leak oil when the switch has gone!

Hard starting diesel engine when engine is hot?

Most of the time a diesel has a hard time starting when its cool. When they have a hard time starting when hot, it is usually caused by the fuel running back into the tank. Check for a cracked fuel filter housing or a cracked low pressure fuel line. It is possible you have the wrong fuel filter. Install a top quality name brand filter like Wiks or Baldwin that has an anti bleed back valve in the filter.

What causes a ticking noise after the car first starts then goes away?

The engine parts are rubbing until the engine oil pressure builds up and the oil starts to lube the parts. Old oil, wrong viscosity, or a clogged filter can cause this to be worse than necessary.

Why does oil blow out of the oil filter?

Wrong size filter for the engine, filter too tight or too loose, filter has a hole in it, or gasket not oiled before installation thus causing it to leak. The old gasket could have been left on the engine thus causing a leak with 2 gaskets installed.

Why does the oil warning light flash briefly after the engine has started on a 1995 VW golf?

2 reasons: Normal for the engine to build oil pressure after starting. Use of the wrong oil filter. I recommend Mahle, Mann or VW oil filters. FRAM and other US filters should not be used as they have poor or no anti-drainback valves in the filter causing oil starvation at startup.

Why is your silverado not getting gas from filter to motor?

if you have fuel to the filter but not beyond then obviously something is wrong with the filter. either it is clogged, which case its simply a matter of replacing it, or you have your filter installed in the wrong direction...yes there is a correct flow direction. there should be and arrow which would indicate the low direction. in any event the arrow should point toward the motor.

Why does your oil light come on on your daewoo nubira 1999 if you already have oil in?

The light means low oil pressure. It can be you installed the wrong filter or the filter is defective. It can mean the oil pressure sending unit is defective and it can also mean the oil pump is failing.
