    The fuel pump relay is located in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. It is located on the drivers side of the compartment just above and to the rear of the battery. The placement of the relay is indicated by the label on the box. Hope this helps.phil

    The switch is probably the problem, most of the time the switch goes bad and will stay in the last gear selected. Hope this helps. PHil

1989 ford escort turns over but wont start


if all you did was this...and and put a new battery in and still wont start...if you have went thru your plugs..wires..distributor..ignition coil...made sure your getting spark..if not..check your relays and fuses..preferebly one that deals with spark and timing for injectors..if everything is fine to that point...then try a crankshaft position sensor...it tells the pcm timing for fuel injectors and fire to the ignition coil...hopefully this helps.

My 2002 chev. diesel truck turns over but wont start, new filter


anytime you change the filter in a diesel you have to bleed the air out of the fuel system. The pump won't auto bleed the fuel system for you. every place in the fuel system that has a flare type connection needs to be bleed, start at the connection closest to the tank, loosen the connection and then crank the engine until you see diesel fuel drips from that connection. Tighten the connection while the engine is still cranking. Move to the next connection that is going toward the engine. Continue on in that manner toward the engine until you reach the injector pump/injector. Once you reach the injector pump be VERY aware that the fuel is at VERY high pressure. Do NOT put your body parts in the stream of high pressure diesel fuel. It could kill or injure you! Once you bleed all the way to the injector pump/ injector, the truck SHOULD start. Do not bleed after the injector pump because of the pressure involved, it is WAY too dangerous.

Good luck!

My 1989 camaro runs when I pour gas in the throttlebody but then dies when the gas runs out


I guess my first question is how do you know the injector has fuel ?
You would need to know if the injector is getting voltage and pulse from the computer, and if the fuel pressure is enough to allow the injector to spray.

I have a 1989 iroc camero that will not start.it has a throttle body carb and is a 305.the fuel pump works fine.the car will start if you prime it,but otherwise it wont fire at all.it has power on one wire...


Although you Say the Fuel Pump is Fine, What you Discribe is A NO FUEL Problem If it Starts When Priming and Does Not Without Prime this IS a Fuel Pump Problem NOTE: If you HEAR the Fuel Pump this only Indicates that the MOTOR that Drives the Fuel Pump Works , A Fuel Puessure Test Will Determine if your Fuel Pump In FACT DOES Work.

Diesel 1989 F-250 set too long and will roll over


You may have to bleed the fuel system. There may be a very small air leak in the fuel supply line and after a long time idle, the fuel seeps bac into the tank, leaving an air lock in the pipe. When you go to start, this air makes its way into your injection pump & needs to be bled out before the engine will start. Begin from your fuel filter bleed valve, next the injection pump using the primer pump to transfer the fuel. Next loosen off the injector pipes and crank the engine over until fuel sprays form all the joints. Tighten injector pipes and start. It may run a bit rough for to begin with, but will soon even out. If it doesn't start, repeat bleeding of injectors.

Truck wont start


Your fuel rail or injectors may be clogged. Or you may have a faulty fuel pressure regulator or a fuel pump that does not have a significant volume of flow.
