    Same problem. The fuel pump does not come on when the key is first turned on and the injectors do not fire. I can jump the fuel pump and it will run and fill the rails with gas. The spark plugs are getting fire and will spark. The service engine light is on, the security light is off. When I plug my scanner to the port, it says read failed. The car has sat with a dead battery for about 2 years, and it was running good before we quit using it. I know that the Pass-key sends ground to the starter and the purple wire for the fuel enable circuit, but how do I check it?

    Cold spell and battery almost dead when I tried to start my car. It turned over, but won't start. I found that the battery was unservicable and replaced it. Still won't catch. Alternator tested good as well. Also made sure there was fuel- about half a tank. Some kind of reset necessary?

How to remove fuel tank and replace fuel pump on 1994 oldsmobile cutlass supreme


If it is more than half full, you need to syphon as much gas out as possible, disconnect the hoses, filler neck, and straps to drop the tank.
There is a large ring you turn to gain access to the pump where the fuel lines go into the top of the tank.

sometimes the tank decomposes from the inside flaking off and clogging filters, pumps, etc. always a good idea to completly remove tank and flush to check for same when changing the fuel pump. if that's your problem, you will need a new gas tank

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...


Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

Car runs fine for 15 miles or so. if i get into the gas after that it just coasts or hesitates. if I feather the gas it runs fine


The fuel system is borderline--fuel pump worn, plugged fuel filter, fuel tank not venting properly. Listen at the tank while someone turns on the key (no start attempt)--you should hear the pump run for a moment or two, then shut off. If it keeps running, the pump is likely worn out. Replace the fuel filter in any case. Pop the fuel cap loose after it starts to run poorly--does that give it another 15 miles? the tank vents through the charcoal canister--not the open air.

From the way it sounds you have a fuel pump going out.The fuel pump on your vehicle is located in the gas tank .the gas tank has to be removed from the vehicle to replace the pump.
