RE: [DMCForum] very frustrated!! - starting problem



My experience is that most automotive problems are electrical. I'd get
a voltmeter and make sure current flows as required. --Farrar

      Hi all,
     
      Well, over the past few weeks I revamped my fuel tank system
with a
      new pump and lines!  It worked ut great and the car performs
great
      (except for a few shutters here and there which I suspect may
be a
      vacuum leak somewhere)
     
      ANYWAY... I started the car in the driveway the other evening
and it
      sprang to life on the first try.  It sat there idling for a
minute
      or so then died!  I attempted to start it again with no luck.
It is
      as if the engine was not getting any fuel.  I kept trying then
got a
      bit frustrated and let it be for the night.  The next day I
tried
      again and still no luck.  I hear a series of clicking sounds
from
      the electricalcompartment (not the usual 'one' but a click,
click,
      click)  could this an electrical issue?
     
      I also listened to the fuel pump when I turned the ignition
key.  It
      sounds like it gets juice but it doesn't 'whine' like it
should.
      Again, the pump is brand new and it ran great for a few days
before
      this.  I'm kind of at a loss because I know for sure what went
into
      the fuel fix and I can't see any rreason why this is
happening.
     
      I miss my car running :(
     
      thanks in advance if anybody has a suggestion.
