Possible Fuel Pump Problem?
So yesterday I got in my car, went to town, came back and everything ran fine. No problems. This morning I get up and start my car. starts right up. within 5-10 seconds of starting the rpm slowly gurgle down and die. try to restart a few times and no luck. my neighbor said it sounds like the battery and starter are strong. he said the motor wants to start but seems like its getting no gas. he said that he could not smell any gas either. We checked the fuel pump relay. it was very very hot. almost too hot to hold for more than a few seconds. i called the ford dealership in my town and the mechanic said it sounds like a fuel pump has gone out. that would explain the lack of gas smell, the hot fuse, and the way the car started then puttered out.
what do yall think??
thanks for your speedy response. I know yall will help me.
