My fuel pump won't start but all the fuses are good.


common problem with chev trucks. the square 4 wire plug on the top of the fuel pump is known to go bad. Often shorting the fuel pump. replace the pump with the new pigtail they provide in a good quality fuel pump.

A 460 engine that acts like its not getting enough fuel. Will start but runs as if only on half the cylinders missing badly or such.


Check your running fuel pump pressure. If (as I suspect) it's too low, first try changing your fuel filter. After changing the filter, recheck the running fuel pump pressure. If still low, check you fuel pump pressure regulator. If OK, you may need a new fuel pump.

Also probably would be a good idea to replace you air filter.

Good luck!

Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.

Not getting gas from the tank to the engine


Then either the fuel pump has failed, fuel filter is clogged, fuel pump relay is bad, or the fuel pump fuse is blown. Sit in the car in a very quite area or with someone listening at the fuel fill area with the cap removed and turn on the ignition without starting the engine. The fuel pump should come on for a few seconds and then shut down. If it does not then check the fuse and the relay. If it comes on then you know the fuse and relay are good. Replace the fuel filter. If that does not help more than likely the fuel pump is bad and needs replacing. The pump can run and still not be pumping any fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is for sure bad. You have an 11 year old vehicle so it would not be uncommon for the pump to go bad especially if the filter has been neglected. A partially clogged fuel filter will destroy an otherwise good fuel pump. You will have to remove the fuel tank in order to replace the fuel pump. Use a hand pump to remove as much fuel as possible from the tank as gasoline weighs around 8 lbs per gallon. The less weight the better. Good luck and Merry Christmas.

It ran out of fuel and after refueling it it won't restart


There good be a good chance that the fuel filter may be dirty and at worst the fuel pump may have burnt out due to the lack of fuel in the gas tank. The fuel in the tank is what keep's the fuel pump cooled and with out any fuel it's common for the pump to burn out. Good luck and replace the fuel filter and if you do not hear the fuel pump buzzing in the gas tank, chances are that the pump is gone too, but check the fuse to the fuel pump and see if it burnt out before the pump did.

You are right on track, The fact that you did not hear the fuel pump come on is a very good indication the fuel pump needs to be changed.

Good JOB !

Good Luck
