98 Astro Van Intermittant Power to Fuel Pump Relay

Van turns over, won't start. No fuel pressure - replaced pump. Pump was working fine. Replaced relay. Worked then didn't.

So I've replaced relays & the pump. I've jumped the relay and found that at times I have no power. Methinks it is in the ignition switch in the steering column. Any opinions would surely be appreciated

I've been bitten by this twice! The culprit both times was the connector plug under the van infront of the fuel tank. the second time the connector pin and socket came loose inside the plug itself,( workes for a while then dosen't). Make sure there is good secure contact made in all sockets in this plug, and the pins are held where they need to be inside the plug itself.

1998 chevy astro van sometimes works, sometimes not.? At timesm rarely, the astro will crank but will not start. Fuel pump not cycling and making its hum noise so I changed the fuel pump with an AC Delco...


When you first turn on the key, no crank, the fuel pump should run for a few seconds then stop. There shows to be an oil pressure switch in parallel with the fuel pump relay. It's just a redundant power supply to the fuel pump. Once it cranks enough to bring up oil pressure and the switch closes, the pump will run even w/o the relay. Both the fuel pump relay and oil pressure switch get voltage from the ecm b fuse.
At the fuel pump connector, check voltage and ground, when problem is ongoing. Gray wire is voltage--black wire is ground.
You could pull the fuel pump relay, use jumper wire between terminals on load side of relay. The load side is that line with arrow head, when energized that line moves to the other terminal. As you can see, the orange wire is hot all the time, the gray wire carries voltage to fuel pump. If it runs with jumper, then check control side of relay, the control side has to have voltage and ground, dark green wire with white tracer is voltage comes from pcm. The black wire is ground.

1999 chevy astro van 4.3 will not start in morning, after cranking for several minutes it will finally turn over and run fine the rest of the day could it be a bad fuel pump or oil pump


I have the same problem, I replaced the fuel pump. Did NOT solve it. i was told that it is a computer problem. The computer is not sending electric to the fuel pump, by cranking it several times the oil pressure builds up and will over ride the computer and send power to the fuel pump. This is a common problem on these asrto vans.
