SOURCE: no power to fuel pump

Did you replace the fuse and the wires appropiately ? Is the shutoff valve button pressed down ? If it's up, then the shutoff (inertia switch) will not let fuel go through the sytem. If the fuel pump is new, then it has to work. Especially if it is an OEM replacement.

Check to see if you are getting the correct fuel pressure at the rail. It takes at least 55psi to push past the propets in the spider assembly. Cold weather requires even more psi. You can test this with a cheap fuel pressure gauge from almost any auto part store.

I would also check to make sure the ground for your pump has a good connection, it should be located around your rear bumper in the center. A weak ground will dramatically kill your psi, but still push fuel to the rails.

There is also a problem with the "expensive" spider assembly of that truck. The spider assembly holds the single injector and has 6 tubes going to each cylinder. The lines going into the assembly are known to leak. If you take off the manifold you can easily see if there are any leaks from it, there will be wash marks where the gas has cleaned it. Instead of buying a new spider assembly, there are rebuild kits for it.

If for come to the conclusion that you need a new fuel pressure regulator, don't let them lie to you in saying you need to buy the whole spider assembly. You CAN buy it separately for around $40. If you have problems finding it at local stores, search for it online.

SOURCE: replaced fuel pump & still car wont start on 97 olds 88

You have to check for spark and fuel pressure. The 3800 motor can have a bad module (sits right below the coil pack, as well as bad coils. Also check for fuel pressure. I put a brand new dealer pump in a 93 Olds once and it was not putting out enough pressure to engage the injectors. Section 4 in a Hayes manual found at most Advance and Auto zone stores will give you the fuel pressure reading you need.

Hope this helps.

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.

Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

If you dont know what the fuel pressure is, dont guess. Buy a $20 fuel pressure gauge and hook it to the fuel injector rail and see what fuel pressure you have 35-40 psi. Do you hear the fuel pump run? it should run for 2 seconds when you turn the key on. Do this first,Sometimes....... you can get to pump to run a while longer if you rap on th tank while someone is cranking, that may get it to run long enough to get to a repair shop.

Engin wont start

If the engine is turning but not catching, then its probably the fuel pump. I recently had this problem, and was hoping that the fuel filter or fuel lines were blocked, but in that case, the engine would start, then die off. That being said, fuel pump replacement on a 98 Rover is $1200+. The best thing to do is, after getting a diagnostic to make sure its actually the fuel pump that needs repair, going online to buy a fuel pump instead of letting auto repair shops buy it from the manufacturer. This'll save you at least $300 or so dollars.

02 yukon denali xl wont start, i replaced battery, alternaor and starter are both good truck still wont start

Did you try to replace the starter cable? is the Truck turning over or just clicking.? If it's turning over and not starting. Best guess would be one of two things. Knock sensors Located under intake manifold. they get wet and deteriorate or the fuel pump. I've replaced all three on mine. 233k still running strong...
