What are the sign's of your fuel pump going bad?


The most obvious bad fuel pump symptoms is your vehicle won't start, or it starts but does not run for very long before eventually stalling out. Your vehicle will act as though it is out of gas, even though the fuel tank is full. As the fuel pump attempts to feed the engine fuel, your vehicle may make bucking noises but will not spark up.
If you do suspect that you have symptoms of a bad fuel pump, you can listen to it to see if it is operating. Electric fuel pumps can be heard when you turn the ignition to the second position, so if you do not hear any sound coming from your fuel tank with the key turned, your fuel pump may have failed or the motor may have burnt out. Also, if you notice that the fuel pump is making an excessive whining noise, it may be a sign that the part is on the verge of failing.
Two common bad fuel pump symptoms that your vehicle may experience are engine misfire at higher speeds, or difficulty climbing hills. These symptoms are a sign that your engine is not getting enough fuel. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may want to perform a fuel pump pressure test.
In order to perform a fuel pump pressure test, you will require a fuel pressure gauge. By inserting the gauge in the Schrader valve (usually located in the engine compartment), you will be able to determine if your engine is receiving adequate pressure of fuel from the vehicle's tank. The required pressure reading will be different for vehicle specific applications. Most repair garages have one of these gauges on hand to perform this test.
Your fuel pump may fail or become a faulty fuel pump for a number of reasons. Rust, debris and dirt may enter into the vehicle's fuel system, and may potentially be clogging the fuel filter or the fuel strainer. This does not allow enough fuel to pass through to the fuel pump which overheats the parts, causing damage. A second cause of fuel pump failure is damage to internal parts caused by small particles of dirt entering into the fuel pump. The fuel strainer and fuel filter were unable to keep these particles from entering into the fuel. Another major cause of a faulty fuel pump or failure is letting your gas level get too low. When the level of fuel is low, the fuel pump has to work much harder, becomes overworked, does not cool down properly, and as a result can be damaged. You should never let your fuel reach less than a quarter of a tank.

Replaced fuel pump and truck won't start


There is a fuel pump module electrical piece associated with powering up the pump. Most generally they are located on the frame just behind spare tire. when looking from the rear of the vehicle. Sometimes these corrode and cause the symptoms to be the same as bad fuel pump. Hope this helps.

I am having problems getting fuel to my carberator on my 1985. F-250 4wd. (mfrd 11-84) 7.5 liter gas, dual tank. The engine will start for several seconds & then stall out as tho the fuel is cut...


there is a electronic switching device underneath on frame that switches from tank to tank check that to see if it is bad.
I have had them go bad in the past and had to temporarily hook up electric fuel pump to pump from 1 gas tank to get home.

2001 Blazer: what are symtoms of a bad fuel pump?...


My fuel pump just went bad in my 2001 Blazer. The mechanic told me that the first symptom, which my Balzer had but I didn't know it was a symptom,was the gas gauge jumping around especially when it was low on gas. Another symptom is a surging feeling. The pump itself is about $600 plus labor. They have to drop the fule tank to replace it.

How do you know if your fuel pump is going out


The best diagnostic for the fuel pump is a pressure test. Need to know the specs on it (should be around 40-60 PSI), hook it up to a fuel pump tester and there you go.

The symptoms the engine presents when a fuel pump is going bad could include:

- hard to start
- hesitation
- loss of power upon acceleration
- going dead at idle
- others...

But other problems could cause these same symptoms.
