Check the fuel pump relay or the fuses. Could also be a filter near the injection rail. You might have a fuel cut off swithc. I don't know where it would be, but your owners manual would tell you. Good luck anyways.

SOURCE: 1998 chevy s10 won't start, engine cranks but it won't turn over.

replaced your fuel pump and when you buy it make sure to replace the oil sending sensor on the fuel pump it comes with a replacement when you purchase a new fuel pump

SOURCE: 2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.

It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

SOURCE: i have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months

without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start


If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

Chevy Tahoe sputters than dies


i would first try to replace the fuel filter.usually there filter accumalates debris in the gas tank especially if you you ru the tank close to empty.filter location needs to be traced from the tank toward the motor.you will see a cylinder inline with a strap.part usually runs around 20.00. also when you initally turn the key before start you will hear a hum for about 2 sec. this is the fuel pump pushing the fuel up to motor.so if you hear this pump is working.

1987 mercrusier 180hp wont stay running unless i pump the gas


Could be a small amount of rust got into fuel filter from sitting empty, try changing fuel filter before worrying about the fuel pump.Filters could be partly plugged and its always smart to start with the cheaper fixes first.

I ran out of gas in 2002 chevy impala now it wont start, I have put $20 in it already, It is saying service vehicle soon.


The problem with running out of gas is, the driver keeps trying to start the engine when the tank is empty and it burns up the fuel pump. Turn the key on and listen very closely for a hum or buzz coming from the back or underneath the car. This would indicate the pump is running, No sound may mean the pump is not running. Find the fuel pump relay on the fuse block under the hood and swap it with another relay to see if that has any effect. Also check the fuse panel for a blown fuse. If all else fails, get a can of starting fluid, remove the air filter, and spray the fluid into the intake duct while at the same time craning the starter, The engine should start. If it starts and dies, do this 3 or 4 times. If the engine still wont stay running, you may have to replace the fuel pump.

I ran out of gas in my 2004 chevy tahoe today, got gas, about 2 gallons put in, and the truck wouldn't even start...didn't turn over...why?


IF YOU LET FUEL TANK RUN DRY.FUEL PUMP WILL OVER HEAT CAUSE DAMAGE TO IT.NEVER LET A FUEL INJECTION ENGINE RUN OUT OF FUEL.IT WILL DESTROY FUEL PUMP.

Have a 2001 gmc jimmy...drove home gas gauge read 1/4 tank..next day cranked over but wont start..gas gauge reads empty...put $10.00 from spare gas can..cranked over but no start ..gas gauge still reads...


chevy and gmc trucks have an on going problem with this,turn the key on,and get a rubber mallot or a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank a couple of times,this will unstick something in the fuel pump/sending unit.

I ran my1997 chevy truck out of gas. put 5 galons of gas in it. still wont start. how do i get it started?


check fuel rail has fuel there is a valve like a tire in the fuel rail push down on it and bleed the air out
if there is no air presure then the filter is full o ****

turn ignition on and off a few times without cranking it turn on for 5 secs then off 4-5 times

Car wont start,put 8 gallons of gas,new fuel filter and gas gauge still shows empty.checked fuses,fine.is thier a fuel reset button.


No, but if you put fuel and the gauge shows empty, then you have a loose connector near the gas tank. If car doesnt start, then it is for sure that the connector of the fuel pump is loose. Reconnect the fuel pump and you are gonna be fine.
