Posted by on


1 Answer

If it wasn't working the vehicle wouldn't start

If you have someone turn the key on & off,
you can listen for the fuel pump, by getting up close
to the tank or put a long tool to it and & your ear

You can also put a fuel pressure gauge on the motor
fuel rail schrader valve & check pressure

It can be tested for pressure,volumn,current,etc

Fuel rail pressure code 43 / Po191

Check to make sure the fuel pump is working. If the fuel pump is not working check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay, also check to make sure the inertia cut off switch hasn't been tripped. If the fuel pump is working then check the fuel pressure regulator.

Will not start. can use starter fluid and will run a few seconds. doesnt sound like fuel pump working. could this just be a fuse?

check your user manuel to see if this has an electric fuel pump
if it has electric fuel pump it could be a fuse
to check if fuel pump is working, disconect a fuel line on the motor
crank engine
if fuel spurts out the pump is working
could also check to see if there is fuel filter that is clogged

My 1994 bronco fuel pump is not working, is there a relay i should check first before removing the fuel pump?

Best thing to do is check voltage at fuel pump harness, have some one turn key on and off every 5 secon's, probe wire's at fuel pump harness, one of the wire's will have voltage for about 3 secon's, if you do fuel pump is getting voltage, some time while cranking engine and hitting gas tank with hammer at the same time, fuel pump will start working again, if it start's, you will still need to replace fuel pump or it will happen again, fuel pump is in fuel tank.

2000 saturn will not start it has no trouble codes

i would first check the battery to make sure wires are on securely and then if they are take to auto zone to make sure it holds a charge. if it turns over but will not start check that your fuel pump is working by checking the pump itself or checking that there is pressure at the fuel rail. if there is fuel check that your spark plug wires and plugs are all working. could be a lot of things but this is where i would start. DO YOU HAVE GAS????

No fuel pressure

make sure fuel pump actually works.have somebody turn on switch you should hear whining noise as the pump comes on and the system pressurizes .if the pump makes no noise or sound check the fuel pump fuse if it still does not work check the fuel pump relay circuit for open circuit
