Question about 1991 Chevrolet Corsica
My car died while driving it yesterday. I've narrowed it down to it not getting gas to the engine. I don't, however, know how to find the fuel filter, or take it apart, or heaven's forbid, the fuel pump.

SOURCE: my car won't start
Turn the key on and listen for the 2 second prime of the fuel pump. It's that same humming sound you've heard every time you turned the key up until now. Get a friend to turn it and listen from the trunk or under the tank. If no hum, the pump is bad. Same thing happened with my 03 Malibu with 57k miles. Mileage isn't the issue though, it was the faulty gas gauge that led me to run it bone dry out of gas. This causes the fuel pump to overheat and die when you repeatedly try to restart it. I had to disconnect, drain & drop the tank and replace it with a used model. Yes, used parts of this nature CAN be useful and reliable for about 20% of the new part cost. I got mine on eBay with a 30-day warranty for about 50 bones, works great. New part - $289.00. BONUS- the fuel filter is only 6.99, may as well replace it since you're disconnecting lines anyway. Can't miss it during the tank drop procedure.

I had the same problem in my 91' s10 blazer. Drain the tank, then put about 5 gallons of premium gas. After that put fuel system cleaner and sea foam in the tank. Let it sit their for about an hour. try to crank up the car (you might have to put gas right on the carb until the gas in the tank gets to the engine). If that dose not work you might want to take it to a shop and have them clean the fuel system by hand. It might also be the fuel sensor. I hope this helped also up date us on other problems and if any of our suggestions have helped.

SOURCE: gas not getting to engine
sounds like your fuel pump, normally fuel pumps die gradually not just like that, so best check fule pump fuses first, also i can not remeber if these have a fuel cut off switch, this is normally located arround the fire wall it looks like a red or black rubber button, if you have one you can press that and see if that sorts it, if not then it more than likley is the fuel pump and will possibly need replacing, but check the other things first, better a new fuse than a new pump...hope that helps a bit
