When are you checking for power? When you turn the key on, the main relay energizes the fuel pump for 2 seconds only, then shuts off the pump until you start cranking.

SOURCE: remove back seat to get to gas tank to see if feul pump is working

If you ran the car out of gas, there is a very good chance that the fuel pump is dead. Gas is coolant for for the pump like anifreeze is for the engine. The pump has now been overheated and will need to be replaced. You must drop the tank to do this and I hope you did not fill the tank. It is a very good idea to never run your fuel tank below 1/4 because you stress the pump if you do.

SOURCE: fuel pump leak

Looks like it may be a fuel return line from the fuel manifold . It may be split or loose . Probably both . Get a new section of fuel hose and some good clips and replace it

Power not reaching pump while in tank. Check for bad fuse or relay in power line to pump.

My car wont start up


First of all, the new fuel pump may be bad. disconnect line at fuel filter where it goes through filter. and see if fuel flows, or have someone to put hand flat on bottom of tank and try to start car. if fuel pump is working you will feel a vibration on tank. if it does not work, check the fuel pump fuse in fuse box before you exchange it.and or the fuel pump relay! when car is running it runs constantly, when you simply turn key to on position, it runs for about 3 seconds(until fuel pressure in line comes up. and then cycles off.

Will not start will crank will start with starting fluid but when quit spraying eng quits


`Probably the fuel pump in the tank has stopped working. Verify with a check for power at the gas tank connector: When the engine is cranking, the fuel pump wire should have power on it-use a test light or voltmeter. If the wire has power, but pump will not turn on, the gas tank will have to be removed to replace the pump.
Just by turning the key to on, not start, will or should cause the fuel pump to come on for about 2 seconds to pressurize the fuel lines and put gas under pressure against the fuel injectors. If you don't hear the pump buzz on for a brief time, you know you need to check the fuel pump circuit. Check fuse, check fuel pump relay...but the easiest way to verify a bad pump is to check fuel pressure, or check for power at the gas tank when the engine is cranking. No power is a fault in the circuit (fuse, relay, wiring), power available to the pump but no pump means the pump will have to be replaced .

My 1998 monte carlo runs as long as u put gas down the multi thing changed the fuel filter wat could it be gas goes threw the filter


Is the fuel pump turning on? You should hear a 2 or 3 second buzz or hum from the rear (the pump will be on for that long) when you turn the key to on. If you hear nothing, check the fuel pump fuse, could be in the fuse panel inside the car, or under the hood in the relay/fuse box.
If you don't hear it, the pump may have failed. To be certain, one needs to check if there is any gas under pressure at the engine. Or one could check for power at the fuel pump connector when the engine is being cranked over-if power there, but pump does not work, pretty certain it is a failed pump-tank will have to be removed to change the pump.
If the pump is working, next thing to check would be the fuel injectors and injector circuit. There should also be a fuse for the injectors-probably in the under hood fuse box.

Fuel pump not working?


Have someonde turn the key to on position not start and listen for humming of fuel pump above gas tank in trunk or put ear to gas tank. May only run for a short time to build fuel pressure. No sound, check fuse. Fuse blown, filter screen in tank or fuel filter clogged making pump run hard. Prevelent from using dirty gas cans to fill tank. Please rate answer.

How do you check if your fuel pump is bad without removing the gas tank


Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the second position. This position will light up the dash lights but will not crank the engine.
Listen for a faint or soft humming sound coming from the rear of the vehicle, specifically the gas tank. This will happen almost immediately after you turn the key to the second position, so you'll have to listen closely and be ready for it. The humming is the sound of the fuel pump priming, or pressurizing, the fuel system. If you do not hear this sound, you may have a faulty fuel pump.
  1. Check to make sure there is enough fuel in the gas tank. Although this may seem obvious, it happens to the best of us. If you're gas tank is near empty, the engine may not start. This happens more frequently in the winter time in cold climates; the low temperatures cause condensation to form on the inside of the gas tank. Since water doesn't burn, the fuel pump tries to draw in fuel and instead gets a mixture of water and gasoline and cannot get enough fuel to the engine for combustion.
    Check to see that the vehicle starts. Even if you don't hear the fuel pump priming, attempt to start the vehicle. If the engine won't turn over (start) and you haven't heard the fuel pump prime the system, it is a good indication that the fuel pump may have failed.

    Check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is blown, the fuel pump will not prime. Open the fuse box under the dash of your vehicle and locate the fuse for the fuel pump. Alternately, some vehicles locate the fuel pump fuse in a fuse box under the hood. Remove the fuse box cover (specific removal will vary according to the vehicle). Check the fuse to see if the metal strip inside the fuse has popped. Replace the fuse if the metal strip has popped; if it hasn't popped, it is most likely your fuel pump itself that has failed.

1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!


First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

No fuel from tank to filter


I believe the fuel pump is on the tank, as well as a filter in the tank itself.
  1. I would check for fuses for the fuel pump.
  2. I would check for power to the fuel pump. If there is power to the fuel pump, then the problem is the filter, or a stopped line. If not then replace the fuel pump. Replacing the fuel pump can be tricky, especially if you have a full tank.
  • Lower the tank to the ground.
  • The fuel pump should be on the top of the tank.
  • Remove the wires, and screws holding the fuel pump in the tank.
  • Remove pump from tank.
  • Clean filter in tank, and replace
  • Replace screws and wires.
  • Lift tank back into place, and bolt back in.
