Why would you ask that?

If the fuel pump doesn't run,how would you
build fuel pressure & move the fuel from the tank
to the motor?

95 Isuzu p/u fuel pump runs with key in the start position, but fuel pump does not run with key in the on position

The fuel pump only runs when the engine is being cranked or of course is running, it is shut off after about 1 second in the run only position.

'93 Ford Probe Fuel Pump Collision Switch released

You must add at least three gallons of gas/petrol so the electric pump will prime properly. Be aware that when you run out of fuel/petrol you can damage the pump, the tiny fuel tank mounted pump requires the fuel it runs in for cooling and lubrication, so when you run out of gas it is damaged to some degree, this shortens the life of the pump and in some cases on high mileage cars (or cars that are run out of gas on a regular basis) the pump may not restart. The reset fuel pump button is only activated by a vehicle crash exceeding 3 times the force of gravity, so running out of fuel doesn't trip that switch.

Fuel pump runs constantly with key on engine off. pulled fuel pump relay and fp fuse on firewall and pump still runs and engine will run. pulled guage fuse in dash and pump quits. reconnect fuel pump fuse...

Gauge fuse runs a fuel module that is installed to correct vapor lock. This module is what is running the pump. This module, called the hot fuel module is mounted on the passenger side behind the dash above the blower motor.

The fuel pump dont stop

Hi! The fuel pump is designed to run continuously as long as the ECM receives data that the engine is running. Excess fuel is passed back to the fuel tank.

The fuel pump is also designed to power up for 2-5 seconds when the ignition is turned to "RUN" to pressurize the fuel rail.

If your fuel pump runs continuously when the car is turned off, it may be a "stuck" fuel pump relay.

96 Probe GT. Fuel pump doesn't run when it should.

Does your car run? Some fuel pumps run quiet so you will need to get your ear close to the gas tank and have someone turn on the ignition. The pumps only run about 3 seconds when the ignition is turn on without starting the engine.

I put a new water pump in my 98z24 cavilier 2.4

Sounds like you have one of the cams off. Did you use bolts or drill bits to line up the cams?

Truck runs fine,then dies when hot,the problem does not happen all the time,replaced fuel pump same problem,noticed fuel pump runs all the time now

wrong fuel pump? wires crossed, fuel pump should run when car is on, this is what keeps it running, maybe fuel pump is louder than original and you notice it more. Check your fuel filter. Get a tune up........

Tank was empty...and wan't start now....i put fuel in....but does start....what i suposse to do? it s a kia carnival automatic...diesel

There is air in the fuel pump...locate the fuel filter there is a round cap on top of it that you can push down like pumping fuel into the injection pump.When it gets hard, loosen the wing nut for about 3 turns just enough to let the air escape. Do this process until what comes out is a solid flow of fuel, which indicates no more air trapped. This is how diesel engines behave... hope this helps
