Just replaced the fuel pump in my 2000 Pontiac Montana and it will not start. I will say that I had to pull the battery as well and put a new one in(if that has any bearing whatsoever). Any suggestions??

SOURCE: Fuel pump not working in 2001 Pontiac Montana

It is always possible that you have a bad pump, it happens. If your sure the pump it not working it could be a number of things. Did you replace the filter (if it has a exterior one)? A clogged filter can trigger premature failure of a fuel pump. It could be a blown fuse or relay. What does the engine do when you turn it over? Does it fire at all?

SOURCE: 2003 Pontiac Montana Front Wheel Bearings

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

SOURCE: Changing the starter solenoid on a 2000 Pontiac Montana

On your van the solenoid is attached to the starter. If you can get a solenoid separate (i don't know if you can) then you will need to take the starter off and remove the solenoid (2 screws holding it on) and the wires (on red and one black i believe) pay attention to which wire goes where because you don't want to reverse it on the new solenoid.

SOURCE: how to replace a fuel filter

The fuel filter is located on the drivers side about the mid point of the van inside the frame rail. Loosed the fuel cap to relieve some of the pressure in the fuel system. The filter is held in place by 1 nut (which will probably break off when you try to remove it) and held to the fuel lines on each end by a plastic clip. Pull out these plastic clips with needle nose pliers and pull the fuel lines off. It is easier to understand if you already have the new filter in your hand so you have some idea what these plastic clips look like. Like I said, you will get fuel on you as the lines have fuel in them and well as the filter will be full of fuel.

Sounds like an electrical issue likely in the harness that runs from the body to the gas tank or close to the ECM and the wiring may be rubbing against the body close to the ECM and shorting out. Look for lumps in the wires or green corroded connectors.

How to reset fuel shut off 2000 pontiac montana

There is not a resetable fuel cut off switch on your vehicle. Ford is the only manufacturer that uses these.

If you do not think you have any fuel pressure that you will need to check for power to the fuel pump. If you hit the dog on the drivers side you may have damaged the wireing harness to the fuel pump.

How to change fuel pump 2000 montana

frist you need to empty the gas tank. then place the car on Jack stands.

there is going to be a hose that connected to the gas gas tank near the back of the tank you will have to disconnect that.
I placed a floor jack under the gas tank with a peice of wood between the tank and the jack for support. there are 3 straps that hold the tank up you will need to remove them.

then lower the tank to the floor. there are two hoes that are connect to the fuel pump that need to be disconnected but mark them so that you remember where they go. now disconnect the fuel pump electical plug.

silde the tank from under the car, and unsrew the fuel pump ring and pull the fuel pump out.

place the new fuel pump back in the same way you took it out and reverse the steps that you did to remove it.

you may want to replace the fuel filter also at the same time.

Van won't start

There is a port on your fuel rail,Its like a tire valve push on it a see if fuel is coming out.If it isn't you will need to replace fuel filter first, If you still don't have pressure you are going to have to replace fuel pump.If you can hear the pump it doesn't mean that it is working.It does mean you have elec to need at least 35lbs pressure to fire injectors.You will need to check for spark at spark plugs to.after these test repost and we can solve this problem

My 2000 pontiac montana will start up then immediately die, if i give it gas to try and keep it running it sounds like it backfires through the fuel system

I smell a bad fuel pump.. Easiest way to check this is have someone turn the key but not actually start the car and you stand near the tank to listen for the humming sound a pump usually makes as it pressurizes the system. If you hear the humming sound then check the pumps PSI and see if it holds. Good luck
