SOURCE: fuel pump

I would first take the trunk lining out and see if there is a trap door to acces the top of the fuel tank. If there is not one, you will have to drop the fuel tank out from under the car. It's easier than it looks. Just make sure you look everything over first, and make sure you have something to prop the tank up with because I'm sure it has gas in it. And remember: NO SMOKING! Loosen the strap bolts that hold the tank in place and it will drop down giving you access to the top. The fuel pump should be in the top of the tank with the float assembley. It will probly take a hammer and a flat screw driver to spin the ring to get the unit out. Once you have it loose (or before) remove the hoses and wires, remembering which goes where! Installation is reverse of the above.

Good luck!

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

I have a 1999 Chevy Venture van I ran out of gas and now it won't start I don't hear the fuel pump running so I was wondering is there a emergency shutoff switch to the pump


There is no shut-off switch. Check the fuel pump fuse in the under hood fuse block. Also check for voltage on the fuse circuit, hot all the time. At the fuel pump connector, gray wire is voltage, solid black wire is ground. Have a helper crank it while you check for good voltage and ground at the connector.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am wont start. Fuel pump gets power for a second and then no power. What shuts off the power to the fuel pump?


you have to know that the fuel pump is power by the fuel pump relay
first when key on pcm prime a ground to the fuel pump relay and then the pcm need to know if engine is turning to stay on . make your test at the relay.

I cannot find my emergency fuel pump shut off switch for my 1999 chrysler sebring jxi


Hi

Fuse # 8 in the power distibution center, under the hood should be checked since it powers the fuel pump relay and the engine startet motor relay.

Good Luck

1999 Grand Prix GT 3.8 won't start. Fuel Pump?


Testing fuel pump pressure an doing fuel pump electrical circuit testing should be done rather then guessing . Could have electrical problem that mite make one think it was a bad fuel pump . A couple simple test's to confirm , before replacing an finding out it didn't fix the problem .

Not getting fuel after changing the starter motor just wondering if there a safety shut off switch somewhere or if my fuel pump and starter went at the same time!!!!!


It seems there may be a shut off switch or you may have pulled a fuel pump connection loose while changing the starter. Some cars have a emergancy shut off to fuel in case of collisions, mine have mostly been in the trunk. research emergency fuel cut off for your make and model and research no fuel for same.

Where is the saftey shut off fuel switch in a 94 grand am gt V6


There is not safety shut off. Pontiac does not have it cause gm didnt want to spend the extra 14 bucks for the switch. To my knoledge ford is still the only one who offers a shut off and its standard equipment.
