SOURCE: '87 Iroc fuel port injection.

The pump is in the tank. Empty the tank, disconnect the filler and vent tubes, and remove the straps that hold it under the car. Take the strap bolts off the rear end and the front should just slide out. Have a jack ready to help lower and roll out of the way.

You checked all fuses? Dis-connect positive battery lead for a few seconds and reconnect. Do you have spark & fuel?

I have a 96 chevy cavalier that was rear ended and now my fuel pump is not working I need to know where the fusable links are that go to the fuel pump so i can check those before replacing my fuel pump

Easier to pull the fuel pump relay, and with a test light or voltmeter check the relay terminals for a power signal. If the power feed for the pump is a fusible link, likely it is a hot at all times power source. One relay terminal will then show power at all times.
You can also check for the relay's on signal from the computer. When the engine is cranking, the relay should have two hot terminals-the power feed for the pump and the computer signal to energize the relay.
Another way is to check for power at the fuel pump connector while the engine is being cranked over. If there is power then, you know the pump has to be taken out for inspection or replacement.

Fuel pump and filter appears to be clogged no fuel getting to the eingein

Be very safe when you work with fuel and electricity. Only work with live wires when you are trying to measure their voltage. If fuel leaks then don't work with it until all the fuel vapor is gone. The first to do when you work on a vehicle is to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery.

There must be 12V to the pump for it to pump. If power is to the pump and the pump does not run then the fuel pump and fuel filter need to be replace. If no 12 V is to the pump then you have an electrical problem. Sometimes the pump motor fails or a wire shorts to ground. Either of these can cause a fusable link to blow. If a fusable link is blown you should disconnect the wires to the fuel pump. Next replace the fusable link and if it blows right away then the wires are shorted to ground somewhere. If you now have 12 volts to the wires you disconnected then disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and connect the wires to the pump. With the battery connected and you get fuel pressure then the engine should start. If you get no fuel pressure then the pump needs to be replaced along with the fuel filter.

I hope this helps.

I was having problems with my starter on a 1993 chevy suburban k1500 4x4. replaced starter, still wouldn't start. replaced battery, fuel pump, sending unit and fuel pump relay. fuel pump fuse is good. ...

Confused as to why you are replacing things that crank the engine over, like the starter, and things that are just for fuel, like the pump?

Can't tell if it is cranking over or just not firing?

But if it is not cranking, then consider the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, engine ground strap, and battery terminals.

If you think it is not getting fuel, then try some starting fluid, to make sure it does spark at least.

If it does have spark and cranks, then you should put a gauge on the fuel rail. If there is no pressure when you try to start, then check voltage at the pump with a test light.
If none, then follow back to relay.
If none there, then try jumping at the relay, just for testing.
If that works, then it could be safety cutout system.
Some vehicles use an inertial switch, some use oil pressure switch, some use alternator feedback.

Van dormant for three years. installed new battery,started and ran good for two hours, died, fuel guage malfunctioned(still),radio stopped working(still),i.e.,no 12 volts to orange wire. installed new...

The fuel gauge is probably fine, its the sending unit that is probably bad. As far as the radio I would run another power wire from 1 of the accessory ports on the fuse box. Just make sure you test the port so it goes on and off with your ignition. Just test the port with a light tester. Please rate answer!! Thank you

No power to ignition or fuel system

there should be a relay to the fuel pump....sometimes located under the hood by the firewall.......try looking for it......"that one might run two both of them"....

in case of the ignition have you checked the inginition key cylinder.....? does it move alright......can you try to crank it and will it give you power to run the radio?

No head, tail, dashboard lights or clock - fuses & bulbs are good

There is a few fusable links that power that stuff. Did the fuses blow or they no longer have power to them. If the fusable link doesnt blow and there is a short then it will take out all your fuses. I had a fuseable link go and it killed everything.

No fuel

I come to find out,the fuel command is controlled by the computer, due to corrosion in the internals, it is not telling the fuel pump to turn on,so in turn, I run a switch to the power side of the fuell pump, it works, but the weird thing is, you only need the power on to start the truck, after its running, you can shut the switch off, it stays running, shut it off, you need to turn the power on to make it start pumping again, now who can explain this??
