We just replaced the fuel pump and then after we did that it runs for eighty five miles and the car shuts down and does not ever turn back on and less you add fuel until the gas tank is full and then it will start. I need help to figure out this problem. It will not start until you add gas.
Do you

Scan for codes, then check evaporator canister/purge valve it will be red on frame if under hood. Then get back to us if any codes.

Hello,

here is a link to an article that features written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself. Also, I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning.

This is applicable even if your check engine light is not on.

Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one online from sites like Amazon.com
