My car abruptly won't start. It is acting weird though. Both the fuel pump and the electric cooling fan also stays on in the ingnition position and won't shut off. I have let the car stay like that for a few minutes hoping that it might start, but it won't. I have checked the fuses and the fuel inertia cutoff switch. I recently did a tune up on it also replacing the diributer cap, rotor, plugs, wires, and air filter. I was told that the fuel pump relay might be stuck, but I'm not sure where it is at on this car and the Haynes manual doesn't mention it. I am wondering what would make these both stay on indefinately and how to go about further troubleshooting. I have thought about the possibility of the fuel filter being clogged along with the fuel pump impeller being worn out and just spinning and not really pumping anything. I really didn't notice any loss of performance before this happened though. I am at a loss of where to go from here and I don't want to go and break into systems without knowing what the problem is.
have the same problem?
