    Yes,I checked the relay,fuses and harness wires and they all are getting power.Dropped the gas tank again and checked the fuel pump and it even works but,after I put the tank back up,the pump cycled and and started then after that it all stopped again.

SOURCE: I tried changing a fuel filter on a 2002 saturn

When you change these fuel filters, they are basically gravity fed from the tank if the tank is full enough.You sometimes have to just hurry up in the fuel filter install process and slip that filter back in quickly, a little bit(sometimes more) will be spillled on the ground, can catch it with a drain catch bucket.Any questions get back to me, I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

While truck was running I disconnected a fuel relay to relieve pressure from fuel lines to change the fuel filter. Truck would not restart. Assumed fuel pump was bad . Replaced it along with in-tank filter...


Removing the relay would not releive the fuel pressure. Arc across the fuel relay terminals and jump start the fuel pump. Also check to make sure the fuel filter is properly installed.

Fuel injected or carb? Make sure fuel line itself is clear. Some pumps are designed to self regulate (carb systems) some continually pump and a psi regulator sends back the excess fuel back to the tank (fuel inj systems) If the line is obstructed then pump can't deliver fuel fulltime.

If you think pump is not on consistent, try running a dedicated wire through a switch directly to the pump. If it works then you are looking for an electrical fault going to pump. Good luck.

Both fuel pump relays run hot. I have replaced both of them. The truck started and ran for about 30 minutes then quit. I replaced the relays and it ran for a few minutes and quit again.


You could have a bad fuel pump relay switch. The fuel pumpmag-glass_10x10.gif relay switch gets the fuel pump running in the vehicle during the start cycle. The terms fuel pump relay and fuel pump relay switch are used interchangeably. The fuel pump relay begins its job when the automobile operator turns to the ignition on, but before the motor is actually running. At that point, the fuel pump relay in some cars sends a signal to the ignition switch, which in turn sends a signal to the fuel pump to turn on. Others fuel pump relays have actual circuitry inside of them that receive the ignition signal and directly signal the fuel pump to engage.

Have a great day!

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.
