Chevy Blazer no gas will not start. Changed filter, gas gage lies about level. Goes to zero when starting. Full tank.


Possible bad fuel pump. Have someone crank the engine while rapidly hitting the bottom of the fuel tank with your fist agressively. You can also use a hammer and hit the tank using the flat of the hammer head while the engine is being cranked. If it starts or tries to start, suspect a bad fuel pump

where is the fuel pump located on a 1994 mazda 626


In the gas tank. Also referred to as the "fuel sending unit" Which is the pump, screen and sender (float that sends the signal to the gas gauge) If it just stopped working get under the car and hit the tank a few times with a hammer. You don't need to hit it hard. Usually a few whacks will free up the pump and it will work again for a bit. At least long enough to get to a repair shop and save the tow cost.

86 Cherolet Astro van ran out of gas while driving, and when i refueled with about a gallon it still wouldnt start. I tried adding more gas by filling with another gal. and same result. When i try to start it just cranks and does not start. Before this incident i usually start it on the first or second try. Do you think its my fuel pump or fuel pump relay?


by missing gas you pick up all the dirt in the gas tank if the gas pump dont start there nothing else then dirt in the gas pump if it was running good before so there no other reason then gas pump you try something get somebody to crank the truck at the same time go underneat the truck with a hammer hit the gas tank many time while the engine crank with the shot of hammer the vibration activate the gas pump check it out let me no pierre
