1994 cadilac fleetwood that I am suspecting needs a new fuel pump

I have blow the fuel pump fuse maybe 3 or 4 times. When the car dies it's usually the fuse. It recently died on me again but the fuse is still good, Should I go ahead and replace the fuel pump or could this possibly be another problem?

Usually a fuel pressure test will confirm, but if there's power going to it for sure, then replacement sounds like the cure, and filter.

Dies in hot temprature


Sounds like a fuel problem.
A carburettor will hold some petrol so your car probably starts then when that is gone it may stop, could be that what is in the fuel line being from the tank to the carburettor is evaporating in the heat this would mean no more fuel till the fuel pump, pumps more fuel through.
Or could be a blocked fuel filter this is not a big expense but should be done by a mechanic.
Just to make shore I would suggest you have a look were you mostly park the car, make shore there are no stains on the concrete as you do not want petrol leaks.
Also have a look under the actual car.
Regards Craig.

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 95 Crown Vic


Using a smaller fuse should make the problem happen more often.
A mechanic would unplug the pump harness at the tank and check the circuit for high resistance or a short to ground.
If nothing is found in the harness, I would suspect the pump in the tank.

It was probly just the fuse, but considering you already installed the new pump, I doubt they will take it back, I would call first to be sure.....also, if it's an older vehicle, I would just leave it in there..............

My 1989 buick park avenue keeps dying. a friend ran a test on it and it said the fuel pump was the problem, but the fuel pump fuse keeps bowing too... Would this be a short somewhere or the fuel pump...


My first thought is that you have wires shorting out somewhere, probably right above the gas tank. Either way, you're going to have to pull the gas tank off to find it. Usually, when a fuel pump dies, it just doesn't work, and won't normally blow a fuse. Pull the tank down, inspect the wiring, and change the fuel pump if the wires check out okay.

I have a 1989 Ford Crown Vic. Here lately the car will die going down the road. It will usually start right back up. SO, I replaed the in line fuel filter and it was fairly dirty. It ran great for a few...


Most likely the fuel pump,when the fuel filter gets that restricted,it most of the time,is not long before the fuel pump goes out,because of the strain on the pump.

Fuel pumpfuse keeps blowing


Disconnect the batter. Under the hood, you should find a fuse/relay box. There you will find a Fuel Pump Relay. The back side of the box lid will have a diagram (should have) that will indicate which one is the Fuel Pump Relay. Replace the relay and try again. If the problem persists. you may need a new fuel pump. Some vehicles are equiped with a "secondary' fuel pump, usually located near the back of the engine, mounted to the frame. This one will be easier and probably cheaper to replace, vs the one in the gas tank. In my experience, even with a plugged fuel injector, an engine will still start and run, just not as smoothly. Also, check all your spark plug connections, battery connections, and starter connections. Do this with the battery disconnected. This is just a way of making sure all connections are good, in the even that is the problem. You can do this before purchasing any parts. For your battery, you can put some terminal grease on them to prevent corrosion, rust, and acid build up; a common cause for faulty connections, resulting in such issues.
I hope that this information was useful, and aids in the successful recovery of a healthy running vechile for you.
