It should not need to be pushed down to put the retaining ring on. The pump is hitting on the baffle and the float evidently is also. That would be why the gauge isn't working. If the filter sock is not on the bottom of the tank, it can only pick up fuel from the height it is sitting on. Don't know if the baffle is loose, but would pull the pump back out and look inside to be sure the baffle is open to the bottom where the pump should be dropping in. Hope this helps

    Thanks Steve my gauge works fine now but it won't start. So maybe that sock isn't all the way down I had to push down pretty hard to get the ring on I just put 20 worth of gas in it which is on about 6 gallons which ain't much so I will have to drop it and see what's up thanks again Joel

Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.

check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

I just put a fuel pump in my 2000 chevy silverado 2 weeks ago and now it wont run and all the fuel pump will do is click when you turn the key on but it only clicks once?


spray gasoline or carb cleaner into intake. If engine starts, it's a fuel problem. You have a bad (new) fuel pump or relay. Either no power to pump or pump is bad (unlikely but possible).

Just put in a new fuel pump in my 97 chevy silverado. ran for one week. now it will crank but not start. could it be the fuel filters or the fuel pump relay


May be a faulty fuel pump. Sometimes the wiring on the fuel pump will loosen. Check the ground wire close to the fuel pump that connects to the chasis. Also check the ground wire on the rear of the vehicle on the right side next to the bumper mounting bracket.

2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 Replace the fuel pump - ?


First check the fuel pump fuse in the fuse panel to make sure its not blown. Chances are that it is the fuel pump, that is a common problem with chevy trucks. The easiest way to access the fuel pump is to remove the bed of the truck from the frame. Good luck. dont forget to rate.
