Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

One more problem. When I turn on the key switch a pump comes on by my gas tank, I have air shocks is this for them? It runs all the time the key is on. Also can you change the air shocks to regular shocks sense they may cost hundred of dollars?

Why, when I ran out of gas, will it not start after adding 4 gallons of gas?


Hi,if the pump is working ok,I would say that there is some kind of blockage if you undo the fuel lineat the carb or injectors get a bottle and put the end of the line you undone into the bottle then get some one to hold the frottle peddle to the floor and turn the key,then you can see if the gas is coming through,give it a good fuew turns on the key,if gas comes through then put pipe back and turn should start,if not put air line on to blow eny blockage back into the tank,make shore the pump is working before you try this,all the best,hope this was some help.

Vehicle wont start after filling with gas


Fuel pumps are common to fail when filled with gas. Most of the time when fuel tank is low and very hot. The hot pump is shocked by the cold fuel and causes the vains in the fuel pump to fail and sieze to the inner pump workings. Using a rubber hammer hit the center of the fuel tank a few times while someone turns the key. Most of the time it works. Replacement of the pump will probally be needed.

I ran outta gas on my 1998 chevy silverado v.6 vortec. i put more gas in it and pumped the accelerator a few times and it still wont start. how can i fix it is it simple


Best way to fix it when you run out of gas is this. Because you ran out of gas, means your fuel filter is out. When you run out of gas, you end of getting like a air blockage in the line. Now, professional way is to take fuel filter off and fill with gas and put back on, BUT i will tell you a back yard mechanic secret way. Is get a can of starting fluid ( you can get at any auto parts store) and while someone is in side the Pickup, have them ready to turn the key. You are outside with the hood up, and you will be spraying a little bit of the starting fluid in the air intake of directly in carb area ( if carborated) but just spray into air intake. Have them crank the engine, at same time you will spray starter fluid in air intake, just a couple of quick sprays. You will notice it will start and maybe die again. That is normal, you might have to do this a couple times to get things flowing. HOWEVER, what normally happens when you run out of gas, the fuel filter picks up all that junk that has been gathered in the bottom of fuel tank and it has clogged your filter. FOR SURE, if you replace your fuel filter, it will solve this problem. Thank You, and I hoped this helped you.

I have a chevy colbalt 2006 ls .it is fuel injected. i ran out of gas and now it will not start even after making sure fuel tank is full ......


It probably needs a little priming. In order to do such priming, I would turn the key on for about 20 seconds, until the fuel pump goes off. Then, turn it off, do it again. Do it twice more, and it should be primed. Just to make sure, spray some ether down the air intake, and try and fire it off.

Pump noise in rear of car keeps running / Gas pump or load leveller / seems longer run time olately in cold weather ( 1999 olds aurora)


you might have a leak in the rear suspension load leveler. check connections with soapy water. locate where sound is coming from. fuel pump in tank is a slight hum and not that noticable, but the air comp for load leveler is. Also spray around rubber boots on shocks, also check load leveler switch on axle to frame for broken or loose lever control.

My explorer ran out of gas, i filled it up to about a half a tank, now it just turns over but wont start


if it's fuel injected,look on the fuel rail for a schrader valve--looks just like a valve stem on a tire but shorter.remove cap,again just like on a tire.turn key to on-push valve stem in as if to let air out if you get air,then gasoline,you have just bled the system.replace cap,start car.if you get no gas,remove gas tank cap,turn on key,listen for ""hum'' of fuel tank.no hum,check fuel pump.modern[plastic] fuel pumps will self destruct if run dry,even for a short time.

Fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

Yes fuel should come out when the pump is running. There is a little sock or filter at the end of the pick up tube in the fuel tank that feeds the fuel pump. This screen is very fine to filter out small particles. This sock is probably plugged up. To fix you will need to drop the fuel tank remove the sock and then clean out the debris from the tank. Even though the gas stations run filters off their pumps you still get floaters in your tank from the gas stations and if you tend to run your tank low always your sock will plug up eventually. If you turn the vehicle off it may restart again until the sock plugs again and then shut down.
