Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2006 hyundai sonata will start, but it puts a
little like it's not getting gas or something and then
it dies. I changed the fuel pump 3 weeks ago, so
I'm confused.

Recheck the fuel pump pressure and flow, just cause something is new doesn't mean it is good. You should also check for any codes that might be in the system.

Fuel filter,possible fuel pump relay going bad

Update: the car now will not start at all. It will turn over but it won't fire up. I do not smell any gas or hear the fuel pump kicking on. I did just replace the fuel pump almost 2 months ago, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to replace it again. And there were no codes, when hooked up to the code reader.


Spray a little starter fluid in to air intake, if it fires and runs briefly then you know it is fuel related. Then you should make sure you are getting power and ground too the fuel pump, if that checks good then it has too be the pump.

I replaced the fuel pump again on friday. Yesterday my check engine light came on and sometimes the car acts like it's not getting enough fuel or something. It's still running now, but it did stall and die on me while I was driving this morning. The code reader gave a code of P0455 which said Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (large leak). But I have no clue what to start looking for.
