There is also a fuel pump relay in the relay panel on passenger side on wheel well under hood. Pressure regulator bad or vacu leak.

SOURCE: hard start

Its your fuel pump.I had the same plomblem not too long ago.I was spraying either in to start it.I have a 97 chevy truck witch requires 65 psi to start and 55 to run properly.You need to find out much psi you need to start it.You can probaly look in your manual or just make a few calls.My truck had 55 psi and it ran fine i just had to get it running first.Good luck.I wonder if that fuel pressure regulator was a waste of time like it was for me.

You need to do a fuel pressure check.. You will need a special fuel gauge and the appropriate fittings and adapters are needed to properly test the fuel pressure.

1. Relieve the fuel pressure.
Remove the fuel pump relay form the Power Distribution Center (PDC) Start the engine and run until it stalls. attempt restating the engine until it will no longer run. Turn the ignition key off. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal. Replace the fuel pump relay in the PDC. Any if you get any trouble codes at this time you will need to see a shop to have them cleared.

2. Disconnect the quick-connect fuel line fitting fuel gauge into the fuel line using the appropriate T-fitting and adapters.

3. Start the engine and check the pressure on the gauge, your reading should be 49 PSI with the pressure with the engine idling.

4. if the fuel pressure is not 49 PSI:
1) if fuel pressure is higher you could have a pinched of clogged fuel return hose of pipe. if the line is not obstructed check the fuel pressure regulator.
2) if fuel pressure is lower check the fuel filter, look for a pinched of clogged fuel hose between the tank and the fuel rail. check the pressure regulator for malfunctions. Look for leaks in the fuel line.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 94 dodge grand caravan no fuel in fuel rail

Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe

It sounds like you have a security problem, I had the same thing it would fire and run for half of a second and then that was it if anything at all. Had the security system rebooted, now it starts and runs fine.

1996 doge caravan delphi pump. Well i direct feed the pump and no presure out of the new filter. I really think the pump is defective. This will be the third time changing it. All new pumps. In the morning...


If the pump is not making a noise, check your electrical connections on the pump.
If the pump does make the normal sound to prime the system, you can check to see if the fuel lines are clogged before the filter. (This sounds similar to the step you are performing.)
There is a relay that supplies power to the pump. It can usually be interchanged with another relay on the engine bay fuse panel (in most cars that I have owned). That could be the issue.

1996 dodge caravan wont start after fuel pump change


you need to check the fuel pressure to make sure it is holding the proper pressure. If not, you have a bad regulator. If so then check the injectors to make sure they are all spraying

Im looking for the fuel pressure regulator for a dodge gran caravan 2000 i will thank you so much if you give me a clue.


you need to make sure that it has a fuel return line. l'm sure that there is only one fuel line going to the fuel injector rail and the regulator is bulit in the fuel filter by the fuel tank. if you are having low fuel pressure you should replace the fuel pump and filter with either a factory pump or one made by
AC Dleco or Delphi. they are very reliable parts. if you buy another brand you will be doing the same job again sooner than you would like to.

Where is the fuel filter for a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan?


Hello robinhutchis: My name is roger and I will help with your question. You will find the fuel filter located under the van just to the right of the fuel pump and located above the fuel tank. Will look like a oblong ball with three lines attached to it. One line goes toward the front of the van the other two should point toward the fuel pump. Will be held by one fastener. Either a 10mm. or 13mm. headed bolt. Remove the bolt and release the locks on the fuel lines. NOTE. (Fuel lines are under pressure and will leak gas. Besure not to smoke or create a spark as serius harm to your self is posiable or fire.) Reinstall new filter in space of the old filter. Secure fuel lines and the filter.

I have a 1996 dodge caravan. generally, i need to turn the key over 3 times before it will start. pressure regulator?


Have a fuel pressure test done, that will show if the fuel pump is weak or the pressure regulator is faulty. When was the fuel filter changed last?

Starts then quits


Was there fuel pressure before you changed everything? It could also be the pressure regulator sticking or bad. When you crank it over and let off the key you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds and then shut off. If it is doing that then I would be looking to see if you have likes hooked up wrong at the back of the engine or try replacing the pressure regulator.
