Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
I have a 1998 Grand Am that has been sitting for a couple of months. It now will not start, although it was running before. I have replaced the plugs, and it will start on starting fluid sprayed into the air intake.
I believe this model has the fuel pump inside the fuel tank, which will be a pain to replace. How can I check the fuel pump without pulling the tank and replacing it? I disconnected the fuel line running to the injectors, and no fuel comes out when the ignition key is turned on or engine is turned over.
The easiest way to check if the fuel pump is working is to listen for a whirring noise when you turn on the ignition switch. No noise means it is not working.Check the relay a suggested.If you do hear a whirrring noise check the fuel filter. It is located under the car at the end of the tank.
