1982 Cadillac DeVille with Digital Fuel Injection, won't start. How do I know if the fuel pump is bad?


Yes, it should. If it is conventional (like other GM cars), the pump will turn on for a couple of seconds when key is turned to on. This will prime the system for starting. When key is turned to start (cranking), the pump is turned on again at the relay, and pump stays on as long as cranking the engine happens. Once engine is started, the oil pressure switch keeps the pump running.
The best way to check if pump is good is to use a fuel pressure gauge. If it does not have a test port called a Schrader valve on the fuel rail, the pressure gauge must be teed in somewhere convenient. But if you take off the line at the filter, some gas should come out with key on, and when cranking the engine gas should come out in a steady stream.

My car has been starting hard and sometimes dies unless I pump the gas a little when I'm cranking it


Maybe you need to change the gas filters or maybe try better gas or maybe change the fuel pump.

I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutluss Supreme was going down road the other night and just died, changed battery after having old one on charger for a day and getting know place, the car now cranks and turns...


to check fuel pressure you have to use a gauge not just push on the schrader valve to see if gas squirts out.these systems run at 35lbs pressure anything much less and it will not start.also check the fuel volume as if its low the pump cannot supply enough to fuel the motor to run it won`t.

Check fuel flter at fuel pick-up intank (looks like a small wire sock). Remove fuel filter and fitting at fuel rail. Blow out fuel lines w/about 35lbs air press. Ck electrical @ relay - should be 4 connectors - one is key on hot/one is always hot/one is ground and last is hot to fuel pump. Good Luck

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road


fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump
