I stalled a fuel pump on 2002 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl. She stared right upI installed a fuel pump on my 2002 GMC Sonome engine 4 cyl. It started righd not startet up. But, after driven 2 miles, stalled

It is very important to look at the four pin connector that plugs onto fuel tank sending unit the hot wire that runs the pump gets loose and burn the connector making intermittent connection they make a replacement plug for this problem also check the connections on the inside i have those fail once.

My 94 blazer has been stored and not started for a while now it wont start what should i try first it seems to not be firing and cant smell any gas

Turn on your lights- If their bright then you have juice in the battery.

How old is your fuel? Did you use fuel stabilizer?

Is the truck turning over? If not, lightly tap your starter it may be sticking. Then try to start it again.

If its turning over check for spark in the wires.

Check to see how bad your plugs are, pop them out. You may need some new ones.

My 93 bravada wont start new fuel pump and injector

I'm guessing from your short statement that you are not getting fuel. Your '93 would have either the 2.8 or the 4.3 v6. If your not getting fuel, check the fuel pump relay, look for a blown fuse. Disconnect the oil pressure sensor and jump across the connector terminals and try to start the engine. If the oil pressure sensor is bad, it will shut the fuel pump off.

I have a 1999 silverdao 1500 i have juice going to the fuel pump relay and no juice to the pump it wont start

The relay has power on 2 terminals not just one. the relay uses a smaller current to control a larger current...Apply 12 volts to the grey wire aka battery positive and see if the fuel pump will run. if it does ,Check all fuses. and check operation of the fuel ballance module.

Have no power to the fuel pump. Truck will not start. what to do next?

1. make sure you really have no fuel delivery. open a line convenient for you as in cold start injector or fuel filter, disconnect ignition coil lead and crank away a bit to make sure you're not getting fuel.
2. I assume you're getting spark.
3. check efi fuse in main relay box passenger side inside right fender. if good check that you have juice at the Co relay hidden in the passenger kick plate. its the white-red terminalwhich delivers the current. the Circuit opening relay is really the main enchilada for getting the pump up and adam.
4. still no go. you have to address the Co relay itself. test terminals with ohm tester. also you can jump wire the Bp fP terminals in the diagnostic connector on the side of the main relay and see if the pump goes.
5. and lastly it might be the pump itself
