1989 acura integra replaced the gas tank and lost prime to fuel pump any ideas

I replaced the gas tank in a 1989 acura and now i think i lost the prime
to the fuel pump.

when i turn the key i can hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 or 3 seconds and
then stop.

is this a fuel pump problem or is there some safety device in the fuel pump
that makes it cut out if it is not getting fuel
thanks in advance for any info

I'm having problems with my 1992 Acura Integra. Has new relay and fuel pump, but still won't prime or start. What could cause the car not to prime or send power to the fuel pump?


Just because it's a new part doesn't mean it works. Have you checked fuel pressure? Do you hear the pump turn on when you turn the key to on not start. Its a honda so the fuel pump it easy to access from under the back seat. Test power and ground from pump and from harness. I've had to redo fuel pumps due to faulty parts a lot of times.

Integra was sputtering like it was running out of gas. Just now wont idle. If not held above RPM's it dies. When it died, it will turn over but doesnt seem to get gas going. Thinking its the fuel pump....


As the fuel train which supplies the injectors w/ the needed gas...Im quite sure that if you purge the fuel train of air your problem will cease.hope this helps ."Reno"

Can i put a 1994 acura integra ls trans to replace a 1989 acura i


I don't think this would be possible wihtout some hassles.

The engine type build changed twice between the 89 and the 94 series integra.

I would suggest you speak to Honda specialised mechanic before you purchase the 94 tranny.

Also check out the Honda forums as they ahve guys who have done some handy things with the ol integra

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?


The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

My car starts and runs then it wont go anymore and eventually stalls out. i changed the fuel pump all the fuel pump wires,the spark plugs ,the distributo ignitor,and the main relay. my teacher says drain...


I think it's possible that the fuel regulator is stuck open and allowing the fuel to return to the gas tank. If your car is like mine (1991 Acura 1.8 engine), you can try this experiment: Pull the vacuum line off the fuel regulator (it's on the end of the fuel injector manifold and a hose connects to it to return gas back to the gas tank) and temporary plug the hose with a small bolt or golf tee. If the regulator is not stuck open it will make the fuel injector manifold at the highest pressure. Start the car and see if it dies or keeps running ok. If it runs ok then the vacuum control is not working right. If this doesn't help, try changing the fuel regulator valve or pull it out and test it with a vacuum off and on. When the vacuum pressure is present to the valve the valve is suppose to open slightly, this allows fuel to bypass the fuel rail and return to the tank.

My 91 acura integra with a 95 gsr motor in it starts, then dies right away. I replaced the spark plugs, checked for spark through the wires, and checked to see if fuel was coming from the pump. Everything...


did you check the fuel pressur on the fuel rail with a gauge or did you just unplug the pressure reg..

also you should try replacing the fuel filter first... this is cheap 6-12 dollars autozone. just becuase the fuel pump is pumping doesnt mean it its enough. There mightbe a strainer on the fuel pump that might be plugged.

Remove back seat to get to gas tank to see if feul pump is working


If you ran the car out of gas, there is a very good chance that the fuel pump is dead. Gas is coolant for for the pump like anifreeze is for the engine. The pump has now been overheated and will need to be replaced. You must drop the tank to do this and I hope you did not fill the tank. It is a very good idea to never run your fuel tank below 1/4 because you stress the pump if you do.
