    Have 93 Caravan w/ 3.0. ...with a similar problem (its not a grand Caravan)



    Ran great... suddenly cut off after exiting e-way (while driving about 40mph)

    was windy & very snowy at the time.



    New timing belt, Has good spark, & 1/4 tank of gas.

    Also: started & ran for 10 seconds after 5 minute rest (while still warm), but

    wouldn't even fire later on. (so timing belt problem can be ruled out)



    Newly Replaced Fuel Pump (a year old)



    Anything like a "fuel pressure regulator" or something similar that I might be overlooking? (could even be bad gas & if so what's easiest way to fix?)

    (What & where is the FPR?)



    I replaced head gaskets water pump & timing belt myself, but I'm sure its

    something either simple or odd. Otherwise... the van runs great.



    Thanks (in advance) for any helpful suggestions, (as it's cold here now -

    only 15 degrees, in Michigan & cash is extremely tight).

It won't crank up and it sat up 2 years


No gas, plugged fuel filter? Turn on the key but don't crank engine, listen with door open towards gas tank. You should hear a click and a slight motor pump noise for a couple seconds. If not then your sending unit failed.

Where is the fuel pump relay or fuse on ford 7.5 rv chassis


maybe you can reed this:
Get in the van and roll all the windows, turn off radio and a/c and kids. Basically you want to create a quiet environment just for a second or two. Now engage the key as if to start the motor but don't turn the key all the way to start the motor, just before this point. You should now hear a "buzz" or "wind" behind you towards the back of the van, just for a few seconds. This is the fuel pump engaging and pumping fuel. If you don't hear this wind then try it again. It has nothing to do with pumping the gas pedal. It is an automatic item that turns on then off quickly because it thinks it has shot enough fuel from the tank all the way to the motor to start up. If no wind then I'd check and even replace the fuel pump relay which is right above the battery towards the back of it. Actually you will see 2 relays there and they are identical. You could always just switch them to see if the relay was bad. The other relay does something obvious on the van that I forgot but it will be apparent once you disconnect both as to what the other controls. If the fuel pump relay now works in the other slot then the relay is good BUT your fuel pump is most likely bad. This stinks because now you have to lower your gas tank to replace the pump which costs $150 or so. It is easy to do but takes a good 3-4 hours and an almost empty fuel tank is preferred before you begin because the tank is already heavy enough empty. The only special tool needed is a fuel line disconnect tool which is a $6 tool at any auto store. If you hear the sound then the relay is fine. You might want to check to see if your fuel filter is clogged. Again easy to do but messy. Use that same fuel line tool and wiggle it between the end of the fuel filter (right under the van driver's side) and the line. It won't fit that well but just keep wiggling. Now press the line towards the tool and pull line back and it should pop off. Have a rag handy because fuel will drain from the loose end of the hose that goes to the motor. Now get in the van and quickly engage the key again. You should have shot a few ounces of gas onto the ground (I say ground because you should do this outside in a well ventilated area and NOT in your garage). This means your filter is fine. Next I'd check your spark.

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

How do you access the fuel pump on a 1998 Chrysler town and Country van?


fuel pump is located in the tank- follow fuel line all the way to tank Remove fuel lines withe clips pull up -start them going up with a small screw driver then pull line back-- remove round collar ( gas tank must be near quarter tank) and turn by striking it with a flat screw driver and a hammer-remove sending unit pump is the round looking motor, lee davidian

Lack of power in gas pedal


Check fuel pressure and see if its around 30-35 psi while under load if not replace fuel pump, also the gas thats in the tank may be no good if it has sat for so long..
