How to check the fuel pump in a 1996 cavalier


you need a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure, it needs to be 35lbs pressure. if you don`t hear the pump working try hitting the fuel tank while someone is trying to start it. if it starts the pump is no good, however this doesn`t necessarily work all the time. these are the easiest ways. next you will have to use a volt meter and find the power wire and ground wire for the fuel pump at the tank.

1991 camaro v6 Does computer tell fuel relay how much voltage to send to fuel pump? Mine is low volts


No it doesn't work that way. You may have a poor connection some where in the fuel pump circuit. A common problem is a damaged connector to the fuel pump due to overheating.

Fuel pump not working


GM doesn't use a fuel pump reset button, that is Ford and Mazda (owned by Ford). GM pumps are protected by a low oil pressure cutoff switch o the engine near the oil filter (most GM engines used in this model)..

If oil pressure sending unit is bad will it stop fuel pump from working on a 2000 blazer


You should never try a pump without it being in fuel. It uses fuel for lubrication when it is running. If the vehicle doesn't start at all when you first crank it over it is not the oil pressure sender. If you just put the pump in you might want to turn the key off and on several times to cycle the pump then try to start it. If it doesn't start then check fuel filter or check fuel pressure at fuel rail in engine compartment. Is fuel pump cycling at all when the key is turned on? There is a problem with ignition switches on some of these blazers.

How do you know if the fuel pump or just the strainer is bad? i've had to "prime" the fuel pump (turn key forward) for sveral months now in order for the car to start if i dont, then im stuck...


I personally don't think its either. Do this for a living. You have an electric fuel pump and in most cases if they go bad it just plain doesn't work. If it was the strainer you would have problems with fuel pressure while running at all times. As far as having to "prime" the system you could be looking at a loss of pressure somewhere but sounds to me more like a relay or an electrical problem. What I am saying is that as you turn the key to "prime" it, you are maybe not priming it and its more of a hit or miss on the electrical problem. I would check to make sure your fuel pump relay is working. It should engage for about 5 seconds after you turn the key. You can feel if it is engaging by touching it when someone turns the key. Also there may be an ECM relay thats not engaging at all times. Are you able to hear the pump turn on when you turn the key? If yes when it will not start is there power (electrical pulse) on the injectors when it won't start? I would just hate for you to drop the gas tank for no reason and pay for a pump for no reason. Pumps are bad or not bad. Work or doesn't work in 99 percent of the cases. Fuel pressure doesn't change that much either. If there is a blockage it's there or not. Just my opinion and I hope it helps. Good luck.
