If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.

When I went to turn it on, the engine turns over but doesn"t seem to get any gas to keep it running. What may be the problem? I haven't had any problems like this prior .


If you have arleady replaced the fuel filter the most likely reason is the electric fuel pump located inside the gas tank. If you can, get the car to a reliable mechanic for service. The gas tank has to be removed on most cars to access the fuel pump. Hopefully the problem lies with the fuel filter. Good luck!

Car will turn over but acts like getting any fuel. Fuel filter just changed about 10 months ago. Has had tune up. Has full tank of gas.


I would have the fuel filter changed again, just in case sediment from the tank is blocking fuel through the filter, and check the fuel pump. They put them in the gas tank now and they do go bad. If you jack up the back end where the gas tank is, pehaps you will have enough gravity feed to present enough fuel to the injectors to start the car. That will tell you if the fuel pump is bad.

Whats steps do i need to follow on replacing a fuel pump on a 2003 cadillac cts


The fuel pump is probably in the gas tank. You can check if the pump works by turning the key to on without starting the engine. Open the fuel door and remove the gas cap. Put your ear up against the gas filler tube and listen for the fuel pump running. If you don't hear anything it is most likely a bad fuel pump. Let someone listen to make sure. To replace, you may have to remove the gas tank or maybe there is an access panel in the trunk, I don't know about a cadillac.

95 sedan deville wont start and says fuel low with gas in tank


I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.

Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Gas tank?


You are experiencing fuel tank venting problems. Air needs to excape when filling. The normal system in the tank for releasing air is being blocked. A repair shop will probably have to drop the tank out of the car to check the vent system.
