The fuel pump is in the fuel tank on the top and requires the tank to be removed. The fuel filter is located between the fuel tank and the floor board at the front of the tank under the car just under the rear seat. access is from under the car with a sturdy set of jack stands. it is a silver cylindrical filter approximately the size of a coke can. with a inlet line and a outlet line that are screwed onto this part with hex nut fittings.

I have a 99 chevy blazer won't start but will turn


You may have a fuel pressure problem or the secuirty system has locked you out for some reason due to a false signal or failed part. Do you have any electronic engine control codes? Is the Security light on in the instrument cluster and fishing when you try to start the truck? To check the fuel issue get a can of spray starting fluid from the auto parts store or any hardware store and spray it into the air intake of the engine while someone cranks the engine, if it starts you may have a defective fuel pump, the pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to access and replace the pump.

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Once in awhile it won't start , wait about 20 minutres and it starts........... 2005 chevy MC Supersport, Supercharghed


Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.

Car will turn over fine but won' start, as if it is starved for gas. the car is full and i have also checked the fuse for the fuel pump and it is fine.


but is the fuel pump working.if you remove the air snorkel and spray intake cleaner into the intake while someone tries to start the car and it starts then you have a fuel problem.either the pump,plugged fuel filter,fuel injectors not working,dirt in the fuel system.check the fuel pressure if it doesn`t start when spraying cleaner into the intake.

20000 grand am won;t start turns over but won;t


Well then if no pressure at fuel rail then go to pump and in line filter as the in line filter might be the main problem but the pump pressure can also be faulty if filter is bad so check it out and let me know how you get on. Ron

'99 chevy caviler fires right up, but then dies after started, like out of gas. Fuel relay sensor? fuel filter? fuel pump?


If it is fuel injected it will get enough fuel to start but not stay running. I had the same problem with my S10. Turns out the hose that went on to the end of the fuel pump was roted. pull the sending unit and check the hose connections to the pump and the sending unit. If problem presists replace filter first the pump.

If it has a regular carburator, replace the acceleration pump. It's a small diaphram on the side, near the fuel inlet.
