The system is working properly, the engine has to start for the fuel pump to continue to get 12 volts, if u cylce the key on the pumps runs a few seconds and then goes off, your pump is getting correct signal it just isn't running, u need a fuel pump.

Where is the fuel sensor on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee

Have you checked the fuel filter? I would pull the fuel line apart before the filter to see if the pump is putting gas into the line. With key on, the pump should run for 2 seconds to pressurize the lines and fuel rail. And when the engine is cranking over, the pump should be running constant and putting gas into the line. If gas shoots out, possibly the filter is clogged or the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is defective. If no gas comes out, possibly the pump filter sock is clogged or the pump is defective.
Very unusual for the pump to run and have NO fuel pressure.

Where is fuel filter on a 2001 intregue

    • Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the fuse panel behind the battery. Open the relay cover and locate the fuel pump relay. The cover will have a diagram to pinpoint the exact relay.
    • 2Pull the relay out of the fuse panel and place it to the side. Start the car and allow it to idle until it stalls out. This will depressurize the fuel system.
    • 3
    • Locate the fuel filter underneath the car directly under the rear driver side door. The filter will be a foot in front of the fuel tank.
    • 4Unscrew the outlet side with an open-end wrench. Use a second wrench to hold the stationary nut on the filter; this will prevent the filter from turning. Pull the fuel line away from the filter.
    • 5Squeeze the clip on the inlet side by hand and pull off the inlet pipe of the fuel filter. Pull the fuel line away from the fuel filter.
    • 6Unbolt the filter from the mounting bracket to release the filter. Replace with the new filter. Tighten the mounting bracket with a socket wrench.
    • 7Push the inlet line onto the fuel filter by hand. The line will lock in place.
    • 8Screw the outlet line onto the fuel filter by hand. Tighten with a wrench to ensure the line is secured. Use a second wrench to prevent the filter from turning.
    • 9Insert the fuel pump relay into the fuse panel. Close the fuse panel cover back onto the fuse panel.
    • 10Turn the ignition to the "run" position and hold for three seconds. This will engage the fuel pump to prime the line. Turn the key off and repeat again. Attempt to crank the car to circulate the fuel into the fuel line.
    • 11Allow the car to idle for five minutes. Inspect for any fuel leaks before turning off the car.

Leak on fuel line e 150 1991

Change the Fuel Filter the process is
  • 1

    Park the van on a flat, level surface. Ensure the parking brake is set.

  • 2

    Open the hood to locate the fuse panel. The fuse panel is located by the battery. Find the relay for the fuel pump and pull it out by hand.

  • 3

    Start the van and allow it to idle until it stalls out. This will depressurize the fuel system.

  • 4

    Locate the fuel filter under the van. The filter is located by the driver door mounted along the frame rail.

  • 5

    Disconnect the inlet fuel line with the quick-disconnect tool. This tool can be purchased at any automotive-parts stores. Place the tool over the connection and pull it toward the filter. This will release the fuel line from the filter. Repeat to release the line on the outlet end. Place a piece of masking tape over the inlet line to help remember which line is which. The inlet line is the line coming from the fuel tank into the filter. The outlet line is the line that runs to the engine from the filter.

  • 6

    Unbolt the filter from the bracket assembly. Slide the filter from the bracket.

  • 7

    Slide the new filter to the mounting bracket. Tighten the bracket with a socket wrench. Ensure the arrow is pointing toward the front of the van. The arrow designates the direction of the fuel flow.

  • 8

    Push the inlet line onto the filter. The line will lock in place. Ensure the tape is removed before installing. Connect the outlet line to the filter. It will lock in place also.

  • 9

    Insert the fuel pump relay back into the fuse panel. This will pressurize the fuel system.

  • 10

    Turn the ignition to the "start" position and allow the fuel pump to prime itself and push fuel through the lines. Attempt to start the van; it may not start right away. Once the van has started allow it to run for five minutes and observe for leaks.

    That sounds like a smililar problem i had. If you pull the fuel line off of the fuel filter, gas should shoot across the parking lot. Not trickle out like a water fountain. My 99 maxima did the same thing and what I found the problem was, was that the fuel line on top of the fuel pump it's self inside the gas tank and blown off. Because nissan put a stupid squeeze clamp on it instead of a screw tight clamp. Pull your the top of your sending unit off and I guarentee you it's not connected to the fuel pump. What's happening it the engine is running off of suction from the gast tank which is why it's only comming out like a water fountain. reconnect the hose back to the fuel pump and put a screw clamp on it prime the system back up and it should start.

    Fuel pump not pumping fuel

    See if you have pressure at the fuel rail by cracking a fuel line open when cranking. If it is under pressure, it should spray. If it only drips, the pump may not be working. You can always pull the tank down some and check the voltage at the pump connections. Voltage at the pump and no pressure at the line usually mean a failed pump that you will need to replace.

    There should be a Nissan techical service bulletin out that covers some models of bad fuel pumps. Call your dealer with a VIN number to check the bulletins that may have been serviced on your specific vehicle.
