Fuel System Problems.

Started having some problems about a month back with the fuel pump in my s10 Blazer, Ended up dropping the tank and putting in a new fuel pump and everything and the blazer ran great for about a week (drove it about 90 miles in this timefrime) and then all of a sudden wouldn't get gas anymore. Anyone got any ideas?

Can you hear the pump when you turn the key on? some of the "off" brand fuel pumps are good cost but lack quality....if you can then i would check / replace the filter. especially after dropping the tank. lots of dirt can be drawn into a new pump..not good. what did the "sock" on the bottom of the old pump look like? dirty? also check fuel pump fuse!

P0453 evap emission control system pressure PRVS sensor high

i would make sure that all the connections at the fuel tank pressure sensor are good also check for bent lines that may be restricting fuel , even the return line and vapor return line.
these trucks do have a lot of wiring problems for the fuel tank pump. check the ground for the pump, it goes to frame. if you need to add another ground wire and splice it in.

If the truck was running good before the tank drop then double check everything . also you may have a bad sensor. with your scan tool you could , if the scan tool can. test sensor by add air to tank,make sure to clip the vent line and check readings when adding air to tank and then release the air and watch the readings if they do not go up and down then replace the sensor.

Fuel pump 98 s10

You must first drain and lower the fuel tank, as your pump is mounted inside. With the fuel tank supported, undo the tank mounting straps, and the filler hose, then slowly lower it until you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical harness. The pump assembly is now accessable. Remove and replace the assembly , then reinstall the tank .

How do i get to the fuel pump on a 1997 s10 blazer

Unless there is an access panel inside the vehicle above the fuel pump, you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to access the pump. Do not forget to replace the fuel filter. Partially clogged fuel filter is one of the causes of a failed fuel pump.

Put back on a in tank fuel pump of a 1991 chevy s10 blazer

The rubber ring goes between the tank and the pump/sending unit flange. There should be a nothc on the tank and a corresponding tab on the flange of the pump unit, to ensure correct orientation. Set the lock ring over the flange, and tap in clockwise with a NON_SPARKING drift. The ring will cam lock into place.

1994 S10 Blazer Tahoe starting problems

Well, obviously someone didn't tell you the truth because spraying into intake doesn't make the vehicle turn over any better. You have ignition or fuel delivery problem. Start by taking fuel line off at intake and crank engine a couple times catching any gas in a cup or something. If none, then trace fuel line back and under vehicle til you find filter. Should be under driverside midway back on inside of frame. Change this and try test again. If no gas, see if fuel pump is on motor(mechanical pump). Change this and test again. If not on motor then it's in gas tank(electric pump). Most cases the tank has to be lowered to take out pump, careful not to drop, dent or make sparks. Some came with access through the floor so check that first. Normally you can hear an electric pump come on when you turn the key. Good Luck

Engine cranks but won't start

If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.
