Question about 1995 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Fuel My fuel pump went out. i replaced it as well as the fuel filter. Drove it 2 weeks no problems. Then it quit running again. I checked fuel pressure before it goes into the engine. it maintains 62#. Someone suggested checking MAP sensor. It was bad & has been replaced. I changed the cap & rotor. I can start it with ether & it idles on its own. I can drive it in the driveway if I barely touch the gas. If I give it the gas like I was pulling out of the drive, it dies & will not start. I was going to pull the cadalitic convertor but it is welded. Any ideas? thanks

You could squeeze the fuel return line with a tool that wont damage the hose.its a check to see if the pressure relief valve on the fuel rail isnt bypassing and sending the fuel back to the fuel tank.Is the air intake including air box in good condition?

What makes 2001 Pontiac Montana stall and die while driving, speed doesn't matter?

Amazing.....At this very moment in 2000 silhouette is doing the same thing....if you were Montana's and silhouette are from the same mold. Very similar in all aspects. My diagnostics have got to the fuel pump part of suspects....but I have already checked filter, relays, fuses and ignition latest suspect is the pressure sensor that monitors the pressure of the gas tank....there is also a pressure sensor on the injector rail I'm suspicious of. I'm going to find out how to place each sensor in "okay ....fuel pump turn on and pump fuel to the throttle body" to check them. In my case....I don't smell any gas after turning the engine over....trying to start it.....sometimes for over an hour....never any gas I suspect fuel delivery is the problem. The fuel pump has several sensors that control whether or not it needs to run....and pump gas. I can hear my fuel pump run for 2 or3 seconds when I turn the ignition to the on or start positions.testing all of those sensors is my plan of action for this 3 day weekend. Your on track with your work and suspicion of the position sensors......vacuum leaks will follow the sensor checks. Vacuum leaks could cause a couple of sensors to fail too.....I dropped my fuel tank last weekend....and found the fuel pump to be in working condition.....I removed my fuel filter and punched a hole through it for free eliminate it from the list...after checking the vacuum angle....I will move to the electronics side.....with the ignition switch first and the transmission position indicator switch following.....I've plugged my trouble code reader in and didn't get any indication of any failed electronic problem and your problem seem to be very similar, except that I am doing all of my work on the van myself. I will try to keep you informed of my diagnostics through fix would be nice to know how yours is advancing too.....there are a few directions you can progress into.....hope one solves your problem....if not.....there will be more ideas to come....until I solve my problem....good luck to. Us both and onward we couldn't spell or grammar check because I'm using my phone to compose....and the typing pad covers the entirescript being typed. Sorry for any problems. Associated

Fuel rail pressure problems

The injectors may have gotten dirty from changing the fuel pump and filter. Also check for water in the fuel system. It may not be fuel related at all.check plugs ,coils ,wires to see if they need replacing. Hope this helps.

If the fuel level is very low and the van is not level it's not going to start even if the pump is good.
When you turn the key to on you should hear a fuel pump noise for 2 to 3 seconds if the key has been off for at least 10 seconds,and when cranking or the engine is running the pump runs because there's oil pressure sending power to the pump.
Have someone listen back at the tank.No Noise?then it might be time for a fuel pump.
Your fuel filter may be just ahead of the rear axle on the passenger side under the van.
But.....if your gas gauge went out and now your pump quit,maybe the wiring back at the tank is corroded?

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad...they can be very intermittent before they go out completely...unfortunately..the pump is inside the fuel take and requires much time to replace..also fuel pumps are expensive for these models...another(cheaper) thing may be the fuel filter is clogged up a bit starving the engine of the proper amount of fuel. Have you had the fuel injectors checked, the fuel pressure regulator checked...are you getting the proper fuel delivery pressure...have someone check these things too...

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.
