To properly check fuel pump you need to install a fuel pressure gage in the system and it should be about 35lbs pressure, if its not within about 3 to 5lbs if not then the pump will need to be replaced, change the fuel filter also.

Spray a quick mist of starting fluid into air cleaner hose. Reinstall. If vehicle starts then shut off, suspect possible faulty fuel pump relay, fuel pump fuse, fuel pump, or wiring

SOURCE: i put a new fuel pump in and still wont start

ok if the fuel pump is energizing and you can hear it turn on then the pump is working fine and you probably have a restriction. i would replace the fuel filter. when you replace the pump did you replace the strainer on the pump? if not then thats where your problem lies. also could be the fuel pressure regulator also. there is a schrader port on the fuel rail try taking a pen and press down on the core to see if fuel squirts out. or connect a fuel pressure guage to the port and see if you have the right fuel pressure. it should run between 35 and 47 psi

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: 2002 pontiac grand am, new fuel pump and filter, wont start

Is the security light active? If yes it will have to get reprogrammed by the GM dealer as GM has this as a propriatory system... Meaning no one else can work on it.

My 2004 grand am will turn over t not start...fuel pump?


Check the fuel pump relay. It will be under the hood in the fuze box or in a separate box of relays for lights aircon etc. It may be independently fuzed but the underside of the lid should help. If you don't feel it click on startup see if there is another the same for lights etc and temporarily swap them.
When you crank you, or helper, should be able to hear the pump running under the car near the gas tank. A high pitched whirring / buzzing noise.
If you have the knowledge to carry out this task carefully, then slightly release 1 of the fuel injector connections, have a rag ready and see if fuel is released on cranking. Use a connection as far away from the ignition leads / coils etc to reduce risk of fire. The pump could be putting out 40+ psi so take care!!
If there is pump noise and fuel emitted then the next thing is the cold start system which also has a relay, you should be able to feel both relays(pump and cold start) click with your finger on them when helper cranks up. The cold start system runs for a few seconds until the engine has established enough warmth to continue running.
Come back to us if you are still in trouble, try and note everything its doing or not doing?

Replaces starter and coil packs, whats to start but doesn't turnover, sounds like fuel pump is running but just wont start


I would start by checking the bleeder valve on the fuel rail to make sure its getting gas and has good pressure.

Jeep won't run unless you hold down gas pedal? what could be wrong? We have a 2004 grand Cherokee.....we finally got it to start but once we left of the gas pedal it dies. ANy help would be greatly...


its not getting enough fuel to engine. it could be a plugged fuel filter, low fuel pump pressure, or a bad pressure regulator. check the fuel filter first and then go from there. also be sure plugs and wires are ok.

Does it start soetimes? Has it been down all this time? Is it got enough gas? the gauge can be wrong. fuel pumps and gauges are failing alot as the tequies used to steal gas are breking things that peaple don't think about. Peaple steal gas to get to the job they haven't gotton yet. It's getting bad out there It was only once in a while I found this problem but now it's everyday. One in 5 no starts are out of gas and most of the peaple said they keep the tank full ( thier thief knows you and gets plenty, then next htings you know he bends the fuel gauge sender and takes all you gas or you don't but more as you think you have some and you don't.

Car just stopped working and wont start sounds like its not getting gas


this is usually an easy diagnosis, there should be a bleader valve on the fuel rail, (looks like a valve stem). turn the key on, push down on the center of the valve, if fuel sprays out, it is probably not the pump. becareful not to get gas in your face, plus on a rare occasion, the fuel pressure may be to low. usually when the pump goes out, it just quites though.

While i was driving the car acted like it wasn't getting gas and then stalled and now won't start 2004 grand am


sounds like the fuel pump went out. It is located inside the tank. turn the key but dont start and have someone listen for a 1 to 2 second hum by the gas tank. If they hear nothing then your pump is bad. REplace your fuel filter first, it is outside the tank and could be clogged. YOu could get lucky, but I bet your pump is bad.
