Catera 2000 Catera wont start, acts like no gas, fuel pump not heard,

Click on the link for fuel pump wiring, note the fuses. Use a gage and check fuel pressure.
Key on engine off, can you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds? If not, have to check wiring circuits and fuses--grounds, possibly a fuel pump issue?
Engine cranking do you have spark at the plugs, I'm just trying to decide if more than one issue? Any applicable trouble codes?

Why does the fuel pump stay on after the key is turned off?

the fuel pump relay is mounted in the trunk, behind the back seat and on the passanger side. The relay base is green in color. It sounds like the fuel pump relay is stuck on, the secondary circuit is always on. Check/ replace the relay.

Not guessing as to what the problem is , testing for voltage drop problems with a volt meter . posted a video on youtube yesterday . If your still looking for guesses forget it , no one on here could say for sure without testing the circuit an hooking up a scan tool to see if PCM is energizing the relay . Do yourself a favor an take it to a qualified repair shop . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation If you can't learn how to test from this guy , better take to a repair shop .

2002 chev pickup 4.8l fuel pump not always coming on with key = no fuel i jump prime connector and it works sometimes new pump installed already?

The fuel pump is controlled by the Fuel Pump Relay which is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). It is really quite simple. If you check for power and ground at the relay, it should go like this: There should be one connector that has Battery power (B+) all of the time. This is the power circuit that feeds the fuel pump motor. The circuit that this feeds will have continuity to ground all the time (You can check this by hooking a test light to B+ and probing the connectors. The light will light up when it finds continuity to ground) - this would be the circuit to the fuel pump motor itself. Another connector will have battery voltage only with the key in the ON and START positions. This is the power circuit for the relay primary coil. (The circuit that operates the relay) Last but not least, one other connector will have ground momentarilly when the key is first turned to the ON position. It will only be grounded for about 2 seconds. It will only do this once in a key cycle. You will have to turn the key off for about 15 seconds and turn it back on to get it to do it again. This is the fuel pump relay control circuit to the PCM - this is what actually turns the fuel pump on and off. If these circuits are all working, then the only other cause would be a bad relay.

Car just shuts off whiles driving i let it sit for ten minutes and it starts back up i already changed plugs wires cap rotor and coil.

several things are possible, 1 you have an ignition switch than is coming apart (the electrical portion on the column) 2 the ignition module is failing (check for spark when the engine shuts off) 3 your fuel pump is failing, when the car shuts down, turn the key off wait about 10 seconds and turn the key on to the run position... if you hear a buzzing sound... that is the fuel pump working. If no buzzing is heard, it could be the fuel pump, pump relay, or the crash shutoff sensor located in the left rear of the trunk behind a small access panel. Hope this helps

Wont start, checked the fuse, cant seem to locate fuel filter.

Turn the key to the ON position without starting the car
You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds to prime the fuel up to the engine so it can start. If no sound is coming from the fuel tank area which can be heard with the drivers door opened in a quite area the oil sending unit on the engine needs to be looked at. If its bad the fuel pump will not prime. If the oil sending unit is good the fuel pump is at fault instead
Oil pressure to your engine achieves to close the circuit to this switch which the computer senses. When the oil pressure is up to normal standards the PCM shuts that circuit off and turns on the fuel pump relay

Engine stalled and wont start again suspect feul problem did it before but started after struggeling for a hour or so ,now it fails to start at all engine turns and all electricals working could it be...

If you turn on the key, and hear the sound of the pump for a few sec then stop before turning the key to ignition position, then fuel pump is still working. However, you need some one hear the pump running while you starting the car. The pump is located below the rear seat on passenger side. If no sound heard while you start then there is a problem with the Fuel relay switch behind the battery and firewall. If there is sound from the pump then the car needs to have fuel delivery rate checked and fuel filter for possible replacement.
