    Do this fist and its simple using 12 volt light tester to see if you getting power to the pump, this way we can start eliminating items. if you need to replace it, the fuel pump is in the gas tank but is very easy to change. remove the rear cover over the filler neck to access the fuel pump. check for power at the gray wire when cranking over engine. if you have power then the pump is bad. also to check for fuel pressure there is a fuel shredder valve on the fuel rail on the intake manifold .

Check fuses, also make sure power is getting to pump, could be as simple as a bad ground or unplugged wire. Try this if everything is ok then pump is probably bad.

Check to see if you have power and ground at the fuel pump. If it is there, you need a pump, if not, look elsewhere.

Why the fuel pump don't run and the relay don't click when i turn the key on?


If you can't hear your fuel pump priming then either, the pump needs replacing or the relay. If you replace the relay and you still don't hear the pump prime then it's the fuel pump.

Will not start I don,t hear fuel pump run


when you turn key to on position, not start position, you say you cannot hear pump hum for a few seconds, correct ? first check fuses, then find fuel pump relay, it may have a fuse in it also. I would replace relay first. after the fuses of course. if you still don't hear pump run, then your pump is most likely the problem. its in your tank. one more thing, make sure all grounds are good in this circuit. it could be that simple. good luck

My Montro cranks but will not start


there could many different problems. do you have any check engine codes? if so have them checked out, because a sensor may have failed causing the engine not to start. then you need to check the fuel pump. stand by the fuel tank and have someone turn the key on, but dont start the car. listen very closely you should hear a small electric motor run for about 5 sec. if you dont hear anything, check the fuse and the relay. when you turn the key on the relay should make a fairly loud click. if no sound is heard the relay needs to be replaced. if you still dont hear the motor your fuel pump has failed.

So i change the fuel pump, not when i try to start it. it just turns over and wont fire. before it went down, it was shotting black smoke, running real shotty and would literally die upon starting or not...


first things first you should stop just throwing parts at a broken car its a waiste of your money...
first things first, check to make sure you have spark, then check the fuel pressure, can you hear the fuel pump working when you first turnthe key one with out starting the engine, also verify that you have power to the fuel pump. 90% of all fuel pumps replaced are missdiagnosis's. most of the time its the fuel pump relay. so check these things first before replacing anything else.

1988 Chevy Truck . . . I think it's a 1500 with a 350 in it, but I'm not sure. I was rolling down the highway last night at 60 mph when the engine quit running. No sputtering, no sluggishness, no...


Have you checked if the pump is actually pumping gas by removeing the fuel line from carb stick it in glass jar and have someone else crank engine . if gas pours out change fuel filter if not replace fuel pump. if you are fuel injected disreguard last. get fuel pressure tester from auto parts store .they will hav specs on how many pounds of pressuere you should have if pump checks out good try replaceing fuel filter.

Hello

Power for the fuel pump is supplied by fuse #16 in the Power Distribution Center (PDC), goes through the Fuel Pump Relay and then to the Fuel Pump and the ground completes the circuit. Power for the Fuel Pump Relay coil is supplied by fuse #18 in the PDC and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies ground. It is a fairly simple circuit to check.
The first thing to do is check all the fuses, especially #16 and #18. If you have they are good then you will need to pull the fuel pump relay and check for power, with the key ON at the dark green/black wire and orange wire. The DG/BK wire is the power for the fuel pump and the OR wire is the power for the relay coil. If you have power there connect a jumper between the DG/BK wire and the dark green/white wire. You should hear the fuel pump running. If not there is a problem in the DG/WT wire from the relay to the pump.
Okay, lets assume that checks out fine, the next thing to do is replace the fuel pump relay and ground the dark blue wire. You should hear the fuel pump running. Okay? Good, now go to the PCM located on the firewall in the engine room. It has three large connectors, black, white and grey. There is a DB wire in cavity 19of the grey connector. Ground this wire and you should hear the fuel pump running. If it does then the wiring for the fuel pump circuit is all good and the PCM will need to be replaced. If it doesn't run, then you have a problem in the DB wire between the relay and the PCM.

Camry just quit running. I can't hear fuel pump,


The engines oil pressure switch has a third wire which is connected to the fuel pump. The oil pressure gauge may work although the third wire to the pump may be at fault causing your delimma
Once the engines oil pressure reached the normal operating range the computer shuts down the oil switches third wire to the pump and the relay takes over until you shut the emgine off

92 Toyota Camry fuel pump...


I have replaced the fuel pump at least twice in the 268,000 miles i've owed it... if you have the rear seat off and youve turned your car on and don't hear anything than for sure your pump is not working... you would hear the hummm of a working pump especially without the obstruction of the back seat... your good for replacement

Hello Johnholley
I am wondering do you hear the fuel pump when you just turn the key into the on run position not crank just in run and listen and see if you hear the fuel pump run for a second, If you don't hear it you will want to check for power at the fuel tank, and have some one cycle the key while your under the truck with a test light. Hopefully you have power and you hear the fuel pump run. Now if you do hear the fuel pump running then the next thing you will want to check is for spark, It could be the ignition module or pickup coil. check out those thing and I am sure you will be able to figure out whats going on. If you don't get back to me and we can try a few other methods. I sure hope that helps you out johnholley. and thanks for using Fix Ya Bear001
