You will need to find a junction box in the engine compartment where some fuses will be located. There should also be some relays in the fuse block. Under the cover should be listing of where relay is located. you can jump a sire across the pins in or to see if fuel pump runs. If it does then the problem is at the relay. If it doen't, problem is at the fuel pump. Problem with that is that the fuel pump is in the tank and the tank will need to be dropped in order to get to it. Good Luck

1995 trans sport van new fuel pump, won't start

If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't

And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

2005 freestar, turn key on and fuel system won't pressurize. Spray a little starting fluid and van runs fine, system won't pressurize for initial start.

i would check the fuel filter if thats not it then it will most likely be the fuel pressure regulator make sure the vacuum line didnt fall off of it if that checks out then id say its your pump good luck i hope this helps

Replaced the Fuel Delevery System/Pump and the in-line fuel filter on my 93 GMC Vandura Van 2500. Van turnes over; however, no fuel in getting to the engine. I have checked the Fuel Pump...

install a fuel pump guage and check pressure at key on and start, it should hardly vary, it the pressure is constant check the injector signal with a noid light, while you are at it check spark(no spark no injector signal) you won't find a relay fuse

My van wouln't start thena friend banged on the fuel tank and it started up' they say this the fuel pump should I check anything else while I'm at it?

I would check the wiring and plug for the fuel pump. If you end up replacing the fuel pump, I would replace the fuel filter also.

How do I change the fuel filter in an '01 Express Van? It is a 5.7L V8, plenty of crank, won't turn over...intermittent. Problem seems worst when trying to restart on a hot day within 30 minutes or so of...

I believe that the fuel filter for this model is located under the van on the driver's side, inside of the frame rail, just below the driver's door. The filter is connected to the fuel lines by either threaded in lines or clips. When you go to your parts dealer, get a good look at the filter so that not only will you know what your looking for to replace, but also to know what tools maybe needed to do the job. The parts guy can get you the right tools. Nothing like a good excuse to buy more tools! If this repair doesn't solve your issue, try getting under the van and have someone turn the key to start while you listen for the buzz of the fuel pump from under the fuel tank. If you don't hear it, make sure the van can't move and tap on the center, bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while they crank the engine over. If it starts, you probably need a fuel pump. A bad fuel filter and/or a bad fuel pump will not turn on your check engine light. Good luck!
