You need to check to see if you have fuel pressure at fuel rail.if not suspect the fuel pump .if you do have fuel pressure replace the crank sensor.located by passenger side. behind crank pulley

Make sure the fuel filter wasn't installed backwards...if it is correct..then replace the fuel pump..just because it works,doesn't mean it's strong enough to deliver fuel..best of luck

I'd use a gage and check correct fuel pressure? 2.9L engine, my info says 35--45 psi. If fuel pump has a problem, make sure gas tank is clean?
The engine cranks ok, but, won't start? Did you check spark at the plugs engine cranking? I'm just trying to decide if you have more than one issue?

Car cranks fine, was running great, cold morning wont start, sprayed start fluid motor runs until either gone. fuel filter?


this could be a few things fuel pump getting weak or your alarm could of activated itself and it disables the fuel to the engine, I would try reseting the built in alarm system. first put the key in the ignition and turn on till all the lights come on and let it sit 10 minutes with the key on, then after the 10 minutes is over turn the key to the off position and wait 3 seconds and then try to start. if it starts which is possible because grand ams and olds aleros are bad for the security system locking up by them self. Hope this helps.

My 2001 chevy silverado is having trouble starting i changed the fule filter and i can hear my fule pump runing but it takes right at 3 cranks for it to start.. It would try to start but just die on me......


Sounds like it. On new automobiles the fuel pump is in the gas tank, cools the pump, but you can disconnect the pump and put on an outside pump instead of pulling the gas tank and replacing gas pump and tank. Leave old pump in gas tank.

I have a 2000 grand am and I ran it out of gas. I put gas in it.


look for the fule rail on top of the motor there should be a release looks like a tire vavle stem push that in and see if you can get fuel to come out that should purge your fuel system if that doesnt work then your fuel pump may have gone out

The engine turns over. There is a spark. How do I tell if the fuel pump is pumping gas into the engine. I put at least 7 gallons of fuel into my 1992 Dodge grand caravan


Hi:
You can do some basic tests to check for fuel. A simple one is to take off the gas cap, and have someone listen for the pump to run for a few seconds when the key is turned on. you can also remove your fuel filter or check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure guage too. Often you can get a guage loaned to you from the auto parts store, for just a deposit.

97 Grand Cheeroke wont start in the morning when its cold out


Is it fuel injected or carb??? Try holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning the jeep over. This sometimes makes gas pump thru to the cylinders. Have you changed the fuel filter???? I know alot of jeeps have a fule filter with a bypass back to the tank, and sometimes the filter will be bypassing to the tank instead of the the motor. Check it out?????
