I need more information to be of help. Is this device metal or plastic? What is the length? Does it have any lines connected to it? If it does have lines connected to it, is it leaking from the line area or another area? Is the device about the length of the fuel pump? This vehicle has a fuel pressure accumulator near the fuel pump, dark olive in color, metal with 2 screw on fuel lines on the same end and a small screw on the opposite end from the fuel lines. The fuel pressure accumulators do leak fuel when the diaphragm inside ruptures.

Started 6 months ago - ran out of gas at 1/4 tank, figured gage was bad, added gas no problem. Now runs out of fuel at any level afterr it warms up. Changed out fuel pump on frame rail, fuel filter, coil,...


do a check on the fuel pump in the gas tank, else replace a section of fuel line near the throttle body with a clear plastic line, if yu see any air bubble that is your problem, then its a problem of where the air is getting in, a fuel line can leak air in with no fuel leaking out, connect a fuel guage to the system and monitor it at different speeds, could be the pressure valve is faulty, just giving you a few things else to check

89 Cutlass Ciera stalls when stopped. plugs have been changed, wires, fuel pump. Any thoughts on what is wrong?


With a good air filter, and a good fuel filter you shouldn't really have any problems since the fuel pump is good. You could have a vacuum leak, this can be identified by using a can of carb. cleaner with the tube attached so that you can spray near & around your vacuum hoses & connections. If you spray near a leaking hose, or a cap, or connection that is leaking, the engine will slow or stall. Only spray a second or two & allow the engine compartment to air out between spraying as it is a flamable product.

Short of that, you could be looking at ta idle speed control motor/throttle position sensor.

Testing the vehicle with a vacuum gauge could assist in identifying any other issues such as exhaust or valves. Gauges usually come with instructions & just need to be hooked to an available intake port.

good luck.

Where is the location of the fuel pump relay


Did it run fine prior to replacing the alt and battery? Check over where you have been working,sometimes things get bumped/disconnected. Fuel pump shut-off switch is in one of the kick panels near the inside of the doors. Reach up over the top of the kick panel. The pump relay are near the battery. What happens on this model too,is the heater leaks on the computer,which is under the heater core.The coolant/water shorts it out.

Sounds like a fuel pump causing noise. If the noise is still present with the key off then the fuel pump relay is stuck causing the battery to die.

well, there has to be a leak somewhere, broski.

Because you wouldn't be smelling fuel inside the car if there weren't.

I'd look somewhere around the fuel pump housing and work my way to the front of the car, personally.

chances are you're getting close to the leak if the fuel odor is getting stronger.
