Feul pump My van was working fine then one day went to start it and just turned over but wouldn't start. I dropped the tank and took out the feul pump cause I thought it wasn't working. Couldn't hear it. I put in new relay and the feus is fine but I don't get any power in the feul pump plug. Im at a loss.

Sounds like vapor lock. Leave the cap from the gas lid undone for a little while.

SOURCE: I dropped the fuel tank to drain old gas.I put new

Turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds if working. This primes the gas to the injectors when doing this. If not heard running check the oil pressure switch for the 12 volts needed to run the fuel pump starts there on that harness. When the engine starts and the oil pressure reaches the normal pressure the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the pump. The relay stays on till you shut the engine off

Hello: When you turn the key on the fuel pump should run for 2 seconds if it isn't the check the f/p fuse, relay and it could be the pump itself. You might take a hammer and beat on the bottom of the fuel tank (in the center) while someone is holding the key in start (turning engine over) if it starts you have a fuel pump problem.

Probably not. Sounds like a bad ground. The ground connecting point for the door is behind the drivers side kick panel, lower left. And the ground for the fuel sending unit is on the drivers side fender well. First I would unplug the connection at the tank (you can usually access this plug without drooping the tank) and check for corrosion. Clean it if any and take a paper clip and bend the tabs a little in the plug to make a better connection.

Where is the feul pump located

Hello runaboutmom6: My name is Roger and I will answer your question for you. The fuel pump for your van is located inside of the fuel tank. You must drop the tank down from the van in order to gain access for replacement of the pump. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
