Wont start,not getting fuel,where is fuel pump and filter on this car?

Hello dfarr69, the fuel pump is located in the gas tank. To find out if it's working have someone turn the key to the on position, don't turn to start, just turn to on position. have someone who has very good hearing stand back by the gas tank, whichever side it's on, and listen very closely. Fuel pumps have a small motor and if you're listening for it you can usually hear the pump kick on.

The fuel filters are generally about midway between the front and rear tires, usually on the driver's side, and their shaped like a small beer can.

Good luck my friend!

My Saturn has been sitting in my driveway for about a year and a half. We just replaced the battery and the fuel filter and when I try to start the car, the engine turns over, starts for a minute, and then...

If the gas in tank is that old you need to drain it. Once you have good new,clean fuel in tank. Turn key to run position,(do not energize starter just want red lights on dash to come on) listen for fuelpump whine. It will shut off. Turn key off.Turn key to run again, listen for fuelpump again. Turn off key again. Repeat this procedure total 5 times. On last time turn key to engage starter. It should build up enough pressure & fuel & start right up.

I dropped the fuel tank to drain old gas.I put new gas in and turned engine to start it didnt start. Should I be able to hear fuel pump if it is working?This is for a 1990 ford e-150 van.Also where the is...

Turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds if working. This primes the gas to the injectors when doing this. If not heard running check the oil pressure switch for the 12 volts needed to run the fuel pump starts there on that harness. When the engine starts and the oil pressure reaches the normal pressure the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the pump. The relay stays on till you shut the engine off

Ackting like fuel injection pump is going out. how can i check it out?

Since the fuel pump is in the gas tank, you will have to have someone get in the truck while you are under the truck near the gas tank in the rear. Have the other person turn the key to the 'on' position until all the instrumentation lights up, but do not start the truck. If the fuel pump is working, you will hear the pump in the tank engage and stay on. If not, the pump is probably going out.

2000 grand am- wont stay running

It Sounds Like A Fuel Supply Problem. Which Means It Might Be Your Fuel Pump. Check Your Fuse's And Battery Connections Before You Start Getting Into Dropping The Tank And Replacing It.. I Had A 94 mercury That Would Run In The Winter But Would Shut Off While Im Driving Down The Road In The Summer. When It Would Shut Off I'd Listen To My Car. Turn The Key On For 4 Seconds And Off for 2 and Have Someone Listening To The Gas Tank. The Pump Should Make A Constant Tone. If The Tone Changes up and down or if you hear grinding. theres your problem. a basic electric fuel pump for a car should turn on for 3-5 seconds and shut off when you turn the key on. NOT STARTING IT.

If your front tank was much less than 1/2 full you may have a bad pump in the front tank. each tank has a low pressure pump that feeds the high pressure pump on the frame rail. If the pump in the tank is bad, the high pressure pump will draw gas from the tank (especially the front tank) until the tank get below 1/2 full then it loses its prime and the engine will stall. Try disconnecting the electrical connection at the high pressure pump on the rail and then cycle the key on and off and see if you can detect the tank pump running or not.
