First check the fuel filter. check before and after the filter if you get fuel before it then check after it, no fuel before go back to the pump. if you get fuel after then go to the fuel rail on the motor. open the line before the pressure regulator, if you get fuel then check after the regulator, if none after then the regulator is bad, if the regulator is vacuum assisted check your vacuum.

SOURCE: How do i check the fuel pump on a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am?

The easiest way to check if the fuel pump is working is to listen for a whirring noise when you turn on the ignition switch. No noise means it is not working.Check the relay a suggested.If you do hear a whirrring noise check the fuel filter. It is located under the car at the end of the tank.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

SOURCE: Fuel pump on 2004 pontiac grand am does not come

Well i would change the fuel filter first. Then if that doesn't fix it there might be a reset button on the inside of the trunk for the fuel pump actually look for the reset button first. If you don't have one there is a relay switch under the hood sometimes they fail. You have three Ac,Fuel pump, door locks. The way i do it is turn the key on have some one put there hands and feel for the switch to work when you engage the power locks mark it with white tire crayon and feel for the ac when you turn it on it will still click even with the engine not running. mark that one also, Now the last one has to be the fuel pump relay turn the key on and it should click. if no click is heard? You have a bad fuel relay switch. replace it. If you feel the click and hear it? That would mean the fuel pump is bad. And these are in the tank. But please go with the easy stuff first. it might seam a waste of time checking the relays and marking them but i always fo this and mark them. cause you never know when your gonna need to find the relay something.
Good luck!
Hope i helped.

Car wont start


My routine to check non-starting motors: (petrol/gas models)

  • Check immobilizer status
  • Check fuel supply -does it reach the fuel rail when starting. If not OK, check 12v supply to fuel pump when starting. If OK, fuel pump maybe dead.If not present, check fuel pump fuse and relay.
  • If fuel supply is OK, check spark ignition. If not OK, follow the supply circuit backwards to the ECM. Coils and/or ignition amplifier connector should have one 12v supply to it when ignition switch is on.
For Diesels with 'common rails' you can take same approach for fuel. No ignition testing possible. The diesel fuel pump still needs battery power. It will make some sound when IGN is on. If not, check ALL fuses and relays.

Motor wont start


do you hear the fuel pump working? and did you check the fuses? also check and see if the fuel cut of switch is on. it was typically located in the trunk by the hinges that hold th trunk or on the side but look in your owners manuel or google it. i would guess fuel pump in honesty.

The fuel pump went out i replaced it and also replaced fuel filter the car ran great for 2 days then just cut out and now it almost startsbut wont i checked the rail to see if gas is gatting to the in


One guy mentioned carb cleaner. I would use starting fluid due to the fact that if it is a fuel problem the car will run for a few seconds on starting fluid. If it won't run on starting fluid then it's an ignition issue. If it runs on the starting fluid then check the inertia switch & fuel pump relay.

Turns over but wont start


Start by checking all the fuses for fuel pumps, ignition, etc... CHECK ALL FUSES. Next you can check the spark by removing one spark plug and looking to see if there is any sign of gas/ wetness on it... Meaning if you're getting fuel or not to fire the engine. Reconnect the spark plug wire and set it on a metal surface, preferably the motor block or exhaust manifold. Have one person crank the motor over and the other person check to see if the spark plug is firing (sparking). Or to make QUICK diagnosis grab some "starting fluid" and spray into the intake for a second or two, then crank it over, if it sputters or starts then it's a fuel problem, if it does absolutely nothing then It's an ignition problem.

Car wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plugs. If it has spark is it getting gas. Try spraying a little starting fluid in it, does it try to start? Then it isn't getting fuel. Is the fuel pump running when the ignition is first turned on? Fuel pump relay, fuse, fuel pump itself. Just telling you some things to check so people can give a better informed answer.

Wants to start but wont turn on,turns on with starting fluid but shuts of quick delgadocruzjr@gmail.com


not getting any fuel. check fuel pump relay and fuses. if ok check fuel pump and filter. the best way to check fuel pump is to get under car and have someone turn ignition to on, do not try to start. and feel for a vibration by putting hand on tank. you may have to do this a few times, because the pump only runs a few seconds to bring fuel pressure to engine. when running pump is on all the time.
