1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting

It was staling out, got it home and now won't start. Am thinking maybe fuel pump? But where is it? It starts to turn over, but won't start. I know, the battery will die soon. Can you help me figure it out.

    I'll listen for the fuel pump. How would I know if it is the fuel pump before going there. I am only guessing, but the newer cars get the less I know!! Should there be something else I need to look at also? Have already changed the fuel filter. That was the first guess. Will charge up the battery also. Battery is fine, just I know it will die if keep trying to start it. Appreciate the help.

If your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.

    if your ok working around engines, the next step I would take is to take off the breather and have someone crank the engine while i look inside the throttlebody to see if its getting a fine mist of gas comming out the bottom of the injector.If your getting gas then the problem might be no fire at the sparkplugs let me know how you make out ,I have a 93 chev s-10,4.3litreand I will search for my haynes manual and will let you know that i find out

1993 astro van wont start when van has been sitting for awhile. spray intake clean into throttle body and van starts and runs.


depends how long its been sitting if starts with easy start then its a fuel pump problem like the fuel has gone bad or the pump has gummed itself up ,so take it out and check that the pump still works as i suspect that its gummed up and good clean will cure it for you

Changed fuel tank on 1993 chevy astr van and now the van wont start the pump is cycling great but van wont start......fuel is getting to the pressure check valve....its a 4.3 l engine


You might be getting fuel to the rail, but are you getting enough? Double check the installation and make sure you didn't kink the fuel lines when putting the tank back in. This could cause a reduced fuel flow resulting in a no-start condition.

My 2004 astro van staled affter ideling for 15 min. and will not start


tis the seson for fuel pumps, this is where i would start checking to see if there is a problem, try to turn the key on and off letting the pump build up presure and see if this lets you idle the van for a while again
if so you may have a problem with your fuel system, pump, presure regulator, filter, ect.

If You can start the vehicle off ether only then you have a fuel issue. the pump is working and the fuel pressure regulator is too. so either the injectors are not getting an electrical signal to open and close of possibly, Your oil sending unit is defective and has shut down your fuel system (a safety).

Chevy astro van turns over but wont start when


Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump
