Question about 1987 GMC V1500

1 Answer

1987 GMC sierra , no fuel pump power.

My 1987 gmc sierra had a 305 fuel injected in it. i swapped it with a 350 fuel injected., it ran great for a month. took it to get a new exhaust, they called me up when it was done and when they went to move it off their hoist it wouldnt start. i brought gas, didnt start, changed fuel pump, didnt start, changed fuel pump relay didnt start, checked all fuses under driver side dash, all ok. I can hear the fuel pump relay click over. my fuel gauge works. and i know for sure my fuel pump works because i can jump it off 12v and start the truck and it runs great.

i took my test light and im not getting any power.

    i just ran a wire into my spare ignition port off of my fuse panel under the driver side dash. i can hear my fuel relay click when i flash it up. theres just no power getting to my fuel pump and i tryed tapping into my wire with 12v at the other end and put the tester of the other end and had power so i know its not the wire running back to the fuel pump.

The inline fuel pump fuse on the passenger side firewall is good? Are you jumping it with 12 volts at the test lead or the fuse?

The first thing i would check is the fuel pressure. the fuel pump may be running, but that doesn't mean that it is putting out the right amount of fuel

Can i fit a 305 engine in my gmc jimmy witch has a v6 vor tech in it now

It can be done. It's the same block as a 350 so you should be able to use the same parts as a 350 swap. It's a tight fit for sure and requires some specialized parts. Look around on the internet for 350 swaps or check some of the off road mags. You shouldn't have any trouble finding complete swap kits or step by step instructions as well as what type of special pieces you will need. Hope this helps.

It's a 305 fuel injected 1987 chev truck when i turn the key the fuel pump comes on but it won't start seems like there is no gas going to .throddle body. What could be the problem please?

Look inside the frame rail on the driver side for a fuel filter. May be a cheap fix. If it's not there, follow the fuel lines until you find it. Hopefully, it's not in the tank.

1998 gmc 2500 sle 5.7 wont stay running

Theres only one fuel pump relay, unless you have dual tanks. Be sure you have 55-60 psi fuel pressure. I "think" the oil pressure switch supplies power to the fuel pump after the engine is running.
