If you think it's the pump ... Find your owners manual to find locations of fuses and relays ... First is this vehicle on level ground? Does it have sufficient fuel level (1/8 tank or more) then have an assistant turn on ignition switch to run position (not start) while you listen under the tank to hear a pump ... it may only make a noise for a few seconds ... is there fuel getting to the throttle body at the input line (it could be the injector) if there is fuel pressure at the throttle body/injector it may be the injector itself) >>>If no sound is heard ... first check for power at following locations >>> Fuses >>> Fuel pump relay >>> harnesses/connectors going to the tank from the front all the way back >>> connector at pump (tank likely will have to be emptied and removed, and you would rather avoid this if possible) >>>pump ... I don't suspect filter, as I've never had one suddenly fail completely

Fuses first.
Then, disconnect the fuel line at the throttle body (unless there is a fuel pressure testing port) and see if there is fuel when you turn on the key.
If not, fuel pump, probably in tank. (assuming there isn't one on the side of the engine..)
If there IS fuel in the line, then the computer may not be engaging the injectors. Check for wiring issues on something that old. Maybe the main junction splice for power to the computer. (Not sure where on that one, sometimes it's in a dumb place, like near the battery and it gets corroded).

1987 jeep comanche will stay runnning only when spraying carburetor cleaner in carburetor or when you pump throttle rapidly


Hello
It sounds like a glogged fuel filter or throttle body problem. Disconnect gas line at carb get a small jar or can to catch gas, hold gas line in jar and have someone crank engine, If you have good gas flow to carb then Its a throtle body problem, (Throtle body and carb are same thing just in case you did not know)could be electrical or mechanical problem at throttle body, Its usually electrical, fuel flow meter. Hope this helps

Will turn over but not start put a new fuel pump in it if you poor gas in to the throttle body it will start for a min until gas runs out


I had the same problem with my old 1987 Chevy blazer s10. The problem was the ground wire of the fuel tank was rusty and it broke. So simple was the problem. But before that, I checked and change the fuses, the fuel filter, the oil pressure switch (this is related to the fuel pump to) and finely when a was ganging the fuel pump saw that the ground wire was broken or damage.


I hope this can help you.

Start by checking to make sure that fuel delivery to the carburetor is good. The fuel pump might not be working well, or there could even be a problem with the fuel pickup tube in the gas tank.
