My fuel pump seems to be pumping gas but my van wont start 02 chevy venture cranks gets fire an gas but wont start


Just because it pumps gas doesn't mean it is at the exact pressure it should be? Most fuel pumps have a psi of 40 to 45 psi, your fuel pump could be pumping at 25 psi or less which is not enough to start your car even though you can see some fuel pumping out. A simple tool to check fuel pressure can be bought at any auto parts store, check the specs on the fuel pump for your 02 Chevy first to see at what pressure it works, then use the fuel pressure gauge to check it. Anything less than what the specs on your fuel pump are suppose to be and you have a bad fuel pump?

Let's say your fuel pump works at 43psi, you hook up the fuel pressure gauge and you find that it reads 25 to 30 psi, that means it's not enough fuel pressure to start your engine.

VEHICLE CRANK, DOES NOT START Change fuel pump, crank and cam sensor, unable to get orb code


Does yours have a theft deterrent system ? SECURITY light on dash ! Before replacing parts you suppose to test for spark at a spark plug wire . check for fuel pressure . You really should take this to someone who knows what he is doing . You already spent more then it would have cost at the dealer !
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table is an organized approach to identifying a condition that causes an engine not to start. The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table directs the service technician to the appropriate system diagnosis. In order for the engine to start and run, the correct amount of good quality fuel must be properly delivered to each cylinder. The timing of the valve train operation in relation to piston position is also critical, as is mechanical compression of the air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table assumes the following:
?€¢
The battery is completely charged. Refer to Battery Inspection/Test in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
The engine cranking speed is acceptable. Refer to Engine Cranks Slowly in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
There is adequate fuel in the fuel tank.


When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on an go off after a few seconds ? Did you check EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Why are you unable to check for OBD 2 codes ? Don't you have a code reader ?

Ignition coil


Check your fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with the key on and engine off.If its not within these specs replace the fuel pump and filter.

I have a 2003 pontiac grand am there are times when i am driving it loses speed completely and dies if i let it sit for a few minutes it usually will go again but i continue to have the problem what could...


.If you have no engine light on then i would check your fuel pressure first. Sounds like you may have a weak fuel pump.If the fuel pressure is not within the specs then replace the fuel filter first. If there is no change in pressure replace the fuel pump.

Car will not start has spark but wont fire


You need to check and make sure you have proper fuel pressure on the fuel rail. Not sure what engine you have as you did'nt list it but should be at 47 to 51 PSI for the 2.4L and 2.5L engines. Hook gauge in and turn ignition key to on but no start then off and then back on and read the gauge. If not within the specs listed here then your fuel pump is either no good or if not pressure at all could be fuel pump relay.
