1998 Olds Bravada

I drove my Bravada to work and when I got off of work it would not start. And I did not hear the fuel pump trun on. So I taped on the Tank with a hammer to see if that would help out. And it seems to help. But dose that mean that my fuel pump is going bad or is it just the gas?

U have a defective fuel pump, the bearings on the pump rotor shaft are worn and this causes it to stick, u are goimng to have replace the pump or it will strand you for good soon, remember to replace the fuel filter as well or the pump warranty is void, read the fine print.

1994 olds bravada trys to turn over but wont start


First check the spark up at the engine. Also turn the key to the on position with out turning it over and listen and see if the fuel pump primes. You should hear it hum. Thats where I would start anyway. If you don't hear it prime, then the fuel pump is out. If it is running and you are getting spark, then you may have to hook up a fuel pressure gauge to it and make sure you are getting enough pressure.

I am having problems starting my 2000 Olds Bravada in cold weather, even only 11-20 degrees. I have to pump the gas pedal in order for the vehicle to start, after a few tries. I can hear the pump working...


The pump is supposed to stop when the fuel rail has enough pressure so the 5 sec. thing is normal.Sounds like you need a throttle position senser replacement.

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather


Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

Aftermarket fuel pump failure? Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay for low price GM OEM parts. Could also be wiring harness to fuel pump.

We have a 2000 olds bravada that sometimes will crank and not start if you turn the key off then back on it will then start also sometimes it won't even crank and if you trun it off and back on it will...


As far as the turning of the key on and back off and then it starting, it sounds like a fuel pump problem. The fuel pump only primes for 2 sec and therefore cycling the key builds up enough pressure in order for the vehicle to start. As for why the vehicle is not cranking, that I do not know. I would check the battery terminals for corrosion and try to clean them.
