Can you hear the pump in tank running? it should come on for a few seconds when you cut key on. sometimes you can beat on tank with your hand while someone cycles key on and get the pump to kick in. this is a temp fix though if you need a pump i find it easier to remove the bed to gain access to tank.

2000 S10 no start


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?https://s8.postimg.org/50arofh11/fuel_pump.jpg
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.

I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer and everytime I try to crank it, it will try to start but wont turn completely over to crank seems like the gas wont get to it is this a fuel pump relay sensor or filter or...


First. NO CRANK, or CRANKS but doesnt RUN? Does the CK eng light come on with the key on? What is the fuel pressure? It needs to be 60-66PSI if its 55 psi it will not run.

Engine cranks but won't start


I firstly would check relay. You can use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the relay. If you get a reading, it is good, If not it is bad. Than disconnect fuel pump wire harness and do the same.

Engine cranks but won't start


If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.

Fuel pump relay hot


You could have a loose connection going to the relay. Loose or bad connections cause amperage to rise causing heat to rise. Check the plug holes where the relay pins plug in. Check for blackened metal or melting plastic around the pins. If so, check under the relay box for burnt wires, etc. and repair.

Fuel pump is most likely the cause. Probably just barely making the required pressure to start. Needs to maintain 60-66 psi while cranking to start.
