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.
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. tablette pc
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.
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
by missing gas you pick up all the dirt in the gas tank if the gas pump dont start there nothing else then dirt in the gas pump if it was running good before so there no other reason then gas pump you try something get somebody to crank the truck at the same time go underneat the truck with a hammer hit the gas tank many time while the engine crank with the shot of hammer the vibration activate the gas pump check it out let me no pierre
