The fuel pump will only give fuel when cranking the car over & when it is running. the relays (2) of them are lactated on the inside driver side under the kick plate on the center console. look right next to the radio you see the brass bracket holding too relays? it is up there being held on by a 10mm nut. but fyi recheck the fuel pump power. check it with someone cranking the engine over if you are getting power to the fuel pump then its not the relays.. the car i just found this problem in ended up being the mass airflow sensor is so touchy that the air filter was clogged & once the filter was removed it started right up..

New fuel pump won't prime. No fuel from gas tank to engie. Lines are clear.


The pump works without priming anything. If the tank is vented, and you have fuel in the tank, and the pump is installed correctly, it should pump fuel out.
Are you sure the pump is getting power and ground ?

Why won't my new fuel pump in my 2002 kia sedona pump even though it's getting juice from the battery


Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ?
If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.

Why won't my 98 tahoe start after it was sitting for a year? i bought a new battery so that is not it.


Did you put stablizer in the gas before storing it? Does the fuel pump run for 2 seconds when the ign is turned ? Have you checked the air cleaner for debris? Do you have spark? You must have air/fuel/spark to start.

Motor turns over won't start. Cleaned terminals, put in new battery, still won't start. Removed gas cap to vent air on hot day, still won't start. Lights all come on, all electrics appear to...


Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.

It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.

If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.

I had a Grand Prix one time (basically the same car) that had a problem with the fuel pump harness. This harness plugs into the top of the fuel pump as you know, and into the floorboard underneath the car. Check the floorboard end for corrosion or broken wires.

Engine won''t stay running,already replaced fuel pump


try a new fuel filter as well if the pump can't get fuel to the motor it won't run. You may have crud in the tank too. you need to find out if the fuel is getting to the motor.
