Question about 1994 Pontiac Bonneville
Fuel pump replaced 3 months ago car turns over but seems starved for fuel how can i check to see if fuel pump is working
ON THE FUEL RAIL YOU WILL SEE A SCHRADER VALVE(LIKE ONE ON A TIRE FOR AIR), IF YOU PRESS ON THE NEEDLE IN THE CENTER OF THE VALVE, FUEL SHOULD SPRAY UP IN THE AIR AT LEAST TWO FEET OR MORE. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE CAP OFF FIRST. WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY TO THE ON POSITION, THE FUEL PUMP SHOULD MAKE A HUMMING SOUND FOR ABOUT THREE SECONDS, AND THEN STOP. IF YOU DON'T HEAR THE PUMP THEN CHECK THE FUSE AND RELAY FOR THE PUMP IN THE FUSE PANEL. WELL THIS SHOULD CLARIFY ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE CONCERNING THE FUEL PUMP. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING TOO.

Check the valve stem on the fuel line in the engine compartment if it squirts out then your fuel pump is fine
