    I have a 97 Eldorado and it wont pump fuel. I took the fuel pump out and checked it. It pumped fuel. I changed the fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box. No Fuel. What do I check next

    i have a similar problem, i did everything you did but i found out that the pcm in not charging the fuel pump relay and that is not sending a current to the fuel pum . check the pcm and thewire from the pcm and the relay there may be a break. check with a voltage meter = turn key in on position and see if there is any voltage going to the relay. this applies only if the fuse is not blown and you dont hear a whirling sound in the gas tank for the pump

How do I know if my fuel pump or fuel filter is bad I have a 1990 Geo Storm when I plugged it it was running fine I'll let it sit for 2 years I put new plugs in it new wires and that's pretty much it I'll...


Carry to mechanic who can check fuel pump output. Some fuel pumps work ok when idling but don't put out enough pressure when trying to accelerate. Pressure is the key. They can check it.

Still wondering if a new fuel filter comes with new fuel pump?


Most cars have a strainer before the pump inlet and a inline external fuel filter. some have the filter and pump as one unit installed in the tank. the fuel gauge and float are attached to this unit . it is possible that the pump relay may be on the way out.

Sorry, if this is a silly question, but is a new Fuel Filter installed automatically/come with a new Fuel Pump? Or do you have to buy a new Fuel Filter and attach to the new Fuel Pump before installin


Has the filter ever been changed? Need to know year and model of the truck. Fuel filters can be near the tank or under the hood. Filters are usually separate from the fuel pump.

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

Car is not getting gas to motor even after new fuel filter is installed


If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are:
- Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel.
- Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.

Hope it helps.

How do I replace a fuel pump on a 2003 escape? Engine not getting enough fuel so when starting car, I get crank but cannot get engine to turn over. Perhaps the pump can wait if someone has other...


Check to see if the inertia switch is tripped first. Read your owner manual for location and how to reset. Just push the button. It usually only trips in an accident to shut off the fule pump in case there is a leak.

here is how to replace the pump. It's good because you don't have to drop the tank!
  1. Relieve the fuel pressure. For additional information, refer to Section 310-00 . (I disconnect inertia switch and crank engine for 10 seconds to revilve pressure).
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable. (I don't do this myself).For additional information, refer to Section 414-01 .
  1. Lift the LH rear seat cushion.
  1. Position the carpet aside.
  1. Remove the screws and the fuel pump module access cover.
  1. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  1. Disconnect the fuel and vapor lines from the fuel tank. For additional information, refer to Section 310-00 .
  1. s3k~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: The fuel tank may be pressurized. Remove the fuel tank filler cap slowly. If a hissing sound is heard, wait until the condition stops before removing the fuel tank filler cap. If these precautions are not followed, fuel may spray and cause personal injury.
    Remove the gas cap.
  1. Using the special tool, remove the fuel pump module. (If you don't have tool, use a chisel or screwdriver and tap counterclockwise to rotate the ring).

  1. NOTE: Install a new fuel pump mounting gasket.
    To install, reverse the removal procedure.
    • Start the engine and visually inspect for leaks.

Not a bad job. buy pump on ebay or new at discount at tascafordparts.com
