Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Fuel pump I put a new tranny in and now truck wont start. Prior to the tranny the fuel pump would whine when you turned the key on as the fuel lines filled up. Now the pump only makes a ticking sound when you turn the key on. The truck turns over but it will not start.

You can crawl underneth the truck and hit the gas tank with a large rubber mallet and try to start the truck if the truck starts replace your fuel pump. This is just a trick i learned over the years to get a vehicle back to a shop or back to home.

2007 frontier turns over but will not start


You need fuel and spark to run. Vehicle is about the age that fuel pump goes. Have someone get in vehicle and close door (so key chime sound not interfering) turn key to on - but not all the way to start and while they do that stand behind, or next to, vehicle and listen near gas fill door, or even bend down and listen near tank, for the whine of the fuel pump. It should make a whine sound for a few seconds and then turn off when full pressure reached. If no whine, or whine never stops - fuel pump may need to be reset or pump is bad. Check vehicle manual for fuel pump reset switch (usually in passenger foot well or trunk area) and try that button. If fuel pump starts working after reset try starting. If pump is working but still no start then pull a spark plug and ground the base of it to engine and have someone crank it to see if spark is happening at end of plug. Those are first steps to see if you have fuel and spark.

92 vw passat 2.0 16v wont start.


I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

I have 1991 GMC syclone turbo charged. It has a full tank of gas and is getting spark but wont start


step one- need silence- insert key - turn to on- not start- listen for fuel pump whine- if here nothing- check 1- fuel pump fuse
2- fuel pump wiring (double check your ground!). if pump still does not make whine(pressurizing) your pump is gone. an intermitant pump can be a ground issue or a bad pump most times....

Replaced alternator but car wont start?


There are only three items that enable an engine to run. It must have fuel,spark and air. I am sure that it is getting air. Check for spark next. Sounds like it is not getting fuel to me. Check that the fuel pump is running. On most GM vehicles you can hear the fuel pump run and whine a little prior to starting. Check the fuel pump relay also.

2002 alero turns over wont stay started sudden problem


It sounds like it may be the fuel pump. Have someone turn the ignition key to the 'On' position (don't start car) and listen to hear if you have a whining coming from your fuel tank. If not, your pump is bad. If that's not the culprit, then check your gas. You may have had a bad fill up. Try adding some octane boost to your gas and changing your fuel filter.

I ran out of gas. When I put gas in the tank the car wont start. What do I do?


hopefully all you need to prime the system
just turn the key on for 5 sec...do not crank and then turn the key off 5-10 times

each time you do this listen for the fuel pump...you should hear a whining noise
if you do not hear the whining noise then you killed your fuel pump when you ran out of gas

do you drive often below 1/4 tank?

Car wont start


THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.

2000 volvo s80 ran out of gas put gas in but it wont start


Turn the key to full power (but do not crank the engine). You may hear a high pitched whine from behind you - that's the fuel pump running. Leave the key on for about five seconds, then turn it off for a minute. Turn the key on again for another five seconds, and off for a minute. Then turn the key on for five seconds, and then crank the engine.

If your car ran out of gas, you need to run the fuel pump this way to get fuel up to the engine again - all the lines from the tank to the engine are empty, so the pump needs to run to fill them.

If this doesn't work, it's possible that the fuel pump is vapor-locked and will have to be replaced. Some cars are more susceptible than others to this type of failure.

1997GMC Sonoma 4x4 engine cranks but wont start


sounds like a fuel pump problem. take off gas cap and have someone sit in the truck and turn iginition key to on. (do not turn key as if you were starting but to "on only") you should hear the fuel pump engage. if you dont hear the fuel pump then check the fuel pump relay. it is located behind the glove compartment. hope this helps...
