Not an issue with wiring. Heat build-up under car or the fuel pump overheating from chronic low fuel/restricted filter. Did the car die? Or just lack power?

SOURCE: fuel pump wont run and keep blowing a fuse in the front fuse box

The power wire to your fuel pump must be shorting out somewhere. Disconnect it and see if your fuse still blows. If not, then follow the wire all the way back to the fuel pump, and look for a bare spot. Good luck!

SOURCE: fuel pump fuse blown, what causes the fuse to

Fuse's burn if a component in a system has an electrical failure wether it be permanent or intermittent or sometime electrical circuits have an electrical surge which can be caused by numerous things and the fuse will burn to protect the circuit. If your fuse is coninuously burning out then you need to do some investigative work. First I would locate the fuel pump relay and remove that then replace the fuse and see if it burns out, second if you can access it try to unplug the wiring to the pump and replace the fuse, third you should check the wiring going to the pump to see if there is damaged wiring. The last thing that may (but unlikely) be the problem would be the ECM that controls the system. If the first three fail you should try and have it properly diagnosed by good shop.

My 1999 chevy blazer is running rich where I smell fuel fumes can this cause the truck to loose power and not go over 30 but the engine runs smooth


Most likely, A good "burn" is the right Fuel-air mixture. Too much fuel bad burn lots of black smoke. Not enough fuel It may not burn at all. Any emission codes? I will bet it won't pass an emissions test, so get it fixed. Probably affects mileage. Do you smell fuel in the engine compartment? you have a dangerous leak. Or do you smell at exhaust? Do you smell in the cab?
Probably leak in engine bay, or even under the truck's fuel line, filter, pump. or tank.

92 geo tracker keeps blowing fuel fuse 15 amp but when I go to a 20 amp it is fine gas tank is haff full of fuel what is my problem


first off each fuse has a name , so what is the correct name, the 92
has 3 EFI fuses, DOME (memory) IG-Coil (ecu and spark) and "FI"
never up the amps ever or burn the wires up. sorry but that is a FACT. the a above data is wrong, this cars pump draws 4amps.
if more its bad, sure if over 15 it blows, but is a bad pump.
all pumps like to do that, they burn up and suck power, like a piggy.
see your fuse here, linked,
this car and ECU nor know for shorted pumps and shorted ECU
the 92 uses these JUNK brand caps, large electrolytic caps.
and they love to short, on all 89 to 95 trackers and sidekicks in usa.
they are marked Rubycon.

so again which fuse?
ill pretend its FI blown

http://www.fixkick.com/power-elect/blows-fuse.html#FI_blows

FI is bottom right, lost the cover? now you have one.
http://www.fixkick.com/Elect-fail-index.html

is engine 8 valve or 16?, they have different EFI , systems.
Im sure its FI, as it runs ECU and pump. so..... and they love to blow.
25388833-rc0a3iye2lzfx2xdaq3zufia-1-0.jpg

ok i throw dice for you, land on 8v.
see 8v FI fuse here?
http://www.fixkick.com/ECU/8v-tbi-schematic91to95.jpg

what i do is remove the left rear tail light,lens.
then see the pink pump wires, I measure the pump current
i reads 4 amps, with helper keying on over and over.
see?
now if near 4amps, then the ECU is shortings it CORNER cap.
http://www.fixkick.com/ECU/ECU.html

the caps dry out,inside, leak acid , wreck copper traces
and then the cap shorts, some times , it loves to short on speed bumps. due to vibration, its just a bad 50 cent part
that any tech can change or any HAM radio guy, etc.
with simple soldering tools and skills
do tell engine type G16a or b (a= 8v, and b = 16v) and we can
point to exact part bad.

Maybe but the pump in your tank may be bad and overloadind the fuse. When you turn on the key to on - not all the way to start position- you may be able to hear the pump running. OR NOT

I ran out of gas in a 1997 Chevy Blazer, put gas in, but still won't start.


The fuel filter may be to dirty to let the gas flow through and will need to be replaced, or most common when you run out of gas is the fuel pump will burn it self out. The fuel in the tank will keep the fuel pump cooled and will keep it from burning out, if you ran it out of gas. The pump may have burn out and will need to be replaced. Check the fuse first and hope the fuse blown due to the extra amp drown from the pump running without fuel. If the fuse is good, then check to see if you can hear the fuel pump start up when you turn the ignition key to the run position. Note the fuel pump will only energize the fuel line for 5 seconds, so you need to listen for the pump to turn on right away. The other thing too, is you can check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, there should be 62 to 65 PSI when energizing the fuel line and will drop around 5 PSI when the engine is running. Make sure you do not try to start the engine by pouring gas down the throttle body, it been know for the gas to catch fire in the intake manifold and burn up the fuel injector system which is very costly. Start with the simple and check the fuses and fuel pump, then replace the fuel filter. At worst, your going to have to replace the fuel pump by dropping the gas tank and don't forget to replace the wire harness from the fuel pump to the frame. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to know you got your Blazer running again soon.

I recently filled up the gas tank, started the car and drove home(about a mile). My wife got in 15 minutes later and the car would not start. I did find a 15 amp fuse burned out labeled fuel pump. I...


You can try a few things:
  • Remove the gas cap to relieve the fuel pressure and replace
  • Pump the gas repeatedly to force any air out of the fuel lines
  • Prime the system by spraying a little starting fluid into the intake while someone tries to start the car.
I hope this solves your problem. Best of luck.
