Hesitation on acceleration


Can be egr valve, enginge usually shakes back and forth like a huge miss most times. I would definatly check in this order: fuel filter, fuel pump. Sometimes the pump may run, but be too weak to run an engine at speed or under load. If you replace the filter and pump, and it still don't help, then at least you know for sure its not the pump or filter, and move on to the egr, vacuum leaks, etc. Sometimes its a "search till you find it" type thing.

1996 chevy 4.3 v6 fuel pump keeps going out


If you have a Vortec V6 these engines require 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Some aftermarket fuel pumps are not up to the task.
Also, you did not say anything about changing the filter each time you changed the pump.
The symptom reflects a low pressure problem.
You need a gauge to check pressure when the new pump is installed and when the problem occurs.

I have a 1992 chevy caprice.when car sits overnight i go to start it and it cranks over probably 7or 8 times then starts and runs good.i had a 1977 chevy with a carburator and it fired up in about 1.5 to 2...


No this is not normal at all and you have a problem. FI engines should start immediately and run great without any hesitation. It can be a partially clogged fuel filter. Replace the fuel filter ASAP. It can also be a weak fuel pump or defective fuel pressure regulator especially on a 18 year old car. Fuel pump is located on top and inside the fuel tank. The tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump. After replacing the fuel filter and fuel pressure test will tell you if the pump is going bad.

Low fuel pressure


Remove air filter and unplug the mass air flow sensor and try again. if i cranks clean the MAF. check sensors for skewed readings that won't set codes but will upset computer.

1999 chevy silverado won't start.


You need to test the fuel pressure with a special gauge, the pressure should be greater then 35PSI. The Vortec set up has more to it but what you seem to be discribing is a faulty fuel pump. Im assuming that the fuel filter was changed too. But you need to have a special tool that will allow you to isolate the fuel flow from the tank to the engine. popular reasons for fuel system failiers are filter, pump, fuel pressure reg. valve(located underneath the plenum) and not common but maybe fuel pump relay.

96 chevy lumina fuel pump changed now won't start


After you put the new fuel filter back in, make sure your fuel pump is actually pumping, either by listening for it to start when you turn the key on or by cracking the fitting at the fuel rail (after disconnecting your ignition hot lead first) I assume that you have checked the fuse/relay... rick
