Hello Andrew!

I'm not familiar with the Vectra, but I've never let that stop me before.

These days most fuel pumps are in the fuel tank and while some cars need to have the tank removed to replace the pump, many manufacturers have conveniently provided an access panel in the trunk. Not rocket surgery and of course, usual precautions around gasoline apply: smoke a cigarette during the work, have an open flame nearby and don't disconnect the battery (sparks will help get that fire going ??).

Another thought. You mentioned "high pressure" pump and some cars (like my old Alfa) have a low pressure pump in the tank and a high pressure pump under the car. Just sayin'.

Also, consider looking for a user's group for you car.

All the best

SOURCE: Suspected Fuel Pump Failure

first, tap on the gas tank to see if it sounds empty, second, when you turn your key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on (faint whirring sound from gas tank) for a couple seconds.

SOURCE: wont start , no fuel getting to fuel pump

Are you sure there is gas in the tank? I "fixed" more than one car that came in for a fuel pump replacement that ran out of gas. If you have gas, check the fuel pump fuse, fuel pump relay, check for power to the fuel pump. check wiring, kinked lines, clogged fuel filter. Sometimes new FI cars are hard to prime if there is air in the system. Take off the air filter and have someone squirt fuel down the throttle body while you crank the engine. If it fires, you know it's not getting fuel, but when it does fire , it may prime the pump enough to run.

SOURCE: my car(vauxhall vectra) keeps cutting out when

Check the large vacuum line coming from your brake booster,In it is a one way valve that stops you from forcing air backwards into the intake.Which is what your problem sounds like.The sudden extra air pushed into the intake severely leans out the motor causing the stumble.Hope this helps?

SOURCE: when fueling up the petrol pump keeps cutting out

try turning the nozzle upside down in the fuel filler pipe
the shape of the filler is quite contorted
however if you do need to replace the breather, firstly you need to drop the tank out of the car.
this means at least 3 hours work, releasing the filler neck from the body work
try the nozzle trick first, otherwise to a dealer I'd go
let him have the hassle

SOURCE: car was starting perfect until wife tried to start

Hi Tony, If the car ran out of fuel the fuel rail will be empty. Pressurized fuel must fill the rail before injection is possible. The pressure of the fuel in the rail should be somewhere around three point eight bar. Crank the vehicle for about forty seconds at a time and then allow the starter to cool. Repeat until the car starts. A better method is to identify the fuel pump relay, remove it and bridge the switching connections, but that can be dangerous unless you have a knowledge of electrical circuits. Regards John

Getting no power to fuel pump fuse no power to ignition fuse


no engine stated.!

fuses good,? 12vdc on both sides key on?

spark good on all cylinders.??????????

this is first. not fuel, fuel is dead last.

if above is ok the engine runs on test fuel.

if the engine runs for say 3 seconds on test fuel, and SOUNDS

great, that means the spark and engine are ok, leaving>?

FUELING only.

easy , right?

if true all that, then the scan tool is next.

wont buy one,? like most here? (you cant fix cars with no scan tool)



make up or buy a NOID lamp. (a small 12vdc lamp)

see if the injectors are all firing.

if not, the PCM is cutting fuel.

if the injectors fire (electric pulse) then it may be fuel relay not closing.

did you check for 12vdc (11vdc min) at the pump? cranking

you must crank it and check,

there are 3 kinds of cars. (we assume last)

1: pump runs keyon, full time, (illegal now)

2: pump runs for 3 seconds, and stops keyon, (for priming only)

3: runs only cranked, (most cars) and runs running engine.



see that logic there?

some cars cut pump and injection with no spark. ( to cut fires)

this logic is inside the PCM brain, called firmware.

just assume the car is smarter and use #3 above. on all cars

and I win..



the scan tool will show errors cranked for 5 seconds.

does it?



now why i cant leave generic help and answer specifcially

no engine stated.

to fix them you need to know whats there, first.



the line up

1.4 L E-TEC I4 (petrol)

1.6 L E-TEC I4 (petrol)

1.8 L Family II I4 (petrol)

2.0 L Family II I4 (petrol)

2.0 L RA 420 I4 (diesel)





next time post the engine in your car.

open hood , look up see EPA sticker there and engine type?

USA answers... all. of mine, as this is a USA forum../

Where is fuse and relay on the fuel pump a 2005 kia sedona and is there a fuel pump restart buttom


Look in the fuse box in the engine bay near the battery for (Right Hand Drive models.) Look on the inside of the cover and you will see a 'map' of all the fuses and relays. Align the map to compare with the arrangement of fuses and relays in the box to make it easier. No fuel pump restart button. This guide is for petrol(gasoline) model.

Vauxhall vectra problems


with fuel at around 8lb to the gallon you are putting in only 2 gallons and as most of this goes into the reservoir compartment for the fuel pump it is possible that the tank is empty as far as the gauge is concerned.. Try filling the tank to see what the difference is and if it still plays up replace the sender unit in the tank

Citoen xsara keeps cutting out


Have the fuel filter changed most likely cure.
If not it could be numerous problems from fuel pumps to injectors, coil packs,spark plugs air filters etc
Try the fuel filter first if it isn't cured get a diagnostic check done by a garage.
Note petrol and diesel can have different causes also the fuel filter on a diesel is not a diy job.

Blockage somewhere along the fuel line causing the car to cut out suddenly while driving.


I doubt this is a fuel issue, sounds more like a failing part in the ignition system. Get the engine control module scanned for fault codes.

Opel Vectra 1998 engine cuts off in motion


A Opel is a GMC but its a good German car But the problem could be one of a few.
To start with Check the breather pipe on the fuel tank to make sure the air gets in to the tank while you are taken out petrol... It could be the coils getting hot and braking down..I could also be fuel pump in the fuel tank playing up and not pumping the correct pressure for injectors.
BUT the noise what does it sound like i must no

1994 Volvo 960 engine cuts off at high speeds


It sounds like a fuel problem as opposed to an electrical fault. Start with the easiest fixes first ..
The next time the car comes to a grinding halt quickly remove the petrol filler cap and listen for air rushing into the tank. If you can hear air rushing into the tank that means a vacuum has been created inside it.

There are 2 causes of a vacuum inside the petrol tank. One is that the air-valve in the filler cap is blocked (there's usually holes in the filler cap covered by a rubber type ring) and the other is that the breather tube from the tank to atmosphere becomes blocked with dirt and debris thrown up by the roadwheels. Try driving the car with the fuel cap removed or very loose so that air can easily enter the tank. If the car still comes to a halt with the same symptoms, then there isn't a vacuum being caused within the tank.

A failing fuel pump can cause the same problems. I once owned a VW that had the symptoms you describe. The in-tank fuel pump was 'on its last legs' and when replaced the car was perfect.

A blocked fuel filter can also cause the same problems.

Here in the UK the Volvo 960 is either a straight-six 2.5 litre or 3 litre engine. I would guess that Volvos in North America share a pretty much the same mechanical layout depsite model differences. A UK 960 has two fuel pumps. One is located within the fuel tank and is accessed via an inspection plate behind the rear passenger seats (estate/station wagon models). The other fuel pump sits in a bracket underneath the car alongside the fuel filter, just aft of the front passenger seat (driver seat in the US..).

The in-tank fuel pump does most of the work, lifting the fuel out of the tank. The under-car pump lifts the fuel to the engine (it shares the same fuel line). Start with the easiest fixes first - is there a vaccuum in the tank that 'slows'/'holds back' the fuel? Then look at the fuel filter which is supposed to be changed every 40,000 miles.

If it's of any use to you, I've put some photos of the fuel pumps and fuel filter on my own website - www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk Just choose 'Volvo 960' from the drop-down menu.
