Hi,if you have already found out that the pump is not working,
you need to find the pump which most of the time its under the car near the fuel tank,you need to check the wires that go to it and find out if there is any power to it,if not check the fuse if ok,get a 12volt battery and cnnect to pump it self if ok,then problem in the wireing some where,but if one of the above is not working replace.
but if fuse is blown still check pump as it could be a falty pump that made fuse blow.
hope this was some help.

Cranks but wont start

Someone will need to check the circuit at the pump to see if it is getting power from the relay. If it is the pump should be running when you first turn the key on.
You can also check for power at the pump relay.

I have a 1993 ford ranger standard cab 4x4 w/a small 6.turns over but won't start

sounds like no feul. turn your key to the on position but not start see if you hear the feul pump priming you can check if there is pressure in the feul lines through the schrader valve on the feaul rail it looks kind of like a valve stem. be careful if there is pressure in the system it will spray out so protect your eyes if not useing the proper tool. if no pressure probably your feul pump

Cranks for a long time to start up when it has sat for a while.suspect fuel pressure not staying in feul i have to drop tank to replace feul pump?

Check the Fuel Pressure at the fuel rail with a gauge first

Before you start replacing a fuel pump make sure
the other systems on your car are working correctly

Spark Plugs
Old Gas Filter
Old Air Filter
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old O2 Sensors
Clogged Exhaust Converter

Put in a fuel pump and fuel filter and now have no pressure in the fuel rail

I dont know the year so it is difficult to be specific.Is there enough feul in the tank for the feul pump to pick up.Some feul filters have the same connections on both sides and can be installed backwards, this will cause a restriction because feul will only flow one direction.Can you open the feul cap and hear feul pump turn on for 3 seconds when the ignition switch is cycled.Let me know if i can help?

What controls the injector pulse on a 2002 buick rendezvous?


All fuel enjected vehicles have a fuel pump relay that controls the pump action when pulling (pumping) fuel to the fuel rail.

If you are experiencing lack of fuel to the engine, chances are that the fuel pump relay needs replaced.

To determine this, answer the following:

1. Is there fuel pressure on the fuel rail after shutting the engine off (at operating temperature) one hour or more after shut off?

If so, then it may not be the relay. It could be the sending unit (fuel pump) itself, but it feul pressure is not present upon pressing the needle in under the black knob on the fuel rail; replace the fuel pump relay first. If this doesn't work, then the fuel pump may need replaced.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance, or further questions or concerns. Also, inquire abou this with a local parts dealer, as they will also be able to help you in this matter.

The relay and pump are something that you should be able to do yourself, and not have to go to a mechanic or dealer to have replaced. Unless there is extraordinary work invloved, which I highly doubt, but is possible.

Hey I have a 97 Cadillac Cateria and I'm not getting feul to the feul rail could it be a clogged feul filter?

Clogged fuel filter, fuel filter installed with the arrow going the wrong way, or fuel pump bad.
