Question about 1989 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Need to find the fuel pump relay and fuse

Thought I ran out of gas, but after putting in 4 gals of fuel, it wont start and I cant even hear the fuel pump turning on at the tank while friend turns ignition on and off. Trying to check fuse and/or relay to pump, but can't find either and all fuses in main fuse box under driver's side dash are good.

Fuel pump relay is on the firewall or fender. It is the blue box type. You will have to check it with an ohmmeter or get multi-tester.

Sat for 3 years running when we stopped driving now it wont restart. chkd fuses, relays, b


Fuel is probably stale. Pump or pump relay might be stuck.

I suggest you check the fuel delivery to the fuel rail. If no delivery the pump isn't working and the supply should be checked and then take the appropriate action depending whether the supply is good or not.

Do you hear the fuel pump running on the prime cycle (when you turn on the key) (runs for 3 seconds) or when you have oil pressure?Have someone listen back by the tank for the wrrrrr.If you do have to change the fuel pump,make your life easy and just tilt up (lift) the pickup box from the drivers side to access the fuel pump.Takes 20 minutes to change it that way.

I got a 1994 honda civic today I thought it ran out of gas I put gas in the car now it turns over and it wont start


Check the fuse for the fuel pump, if blown replace it. If it is good. turn the key on and put your ear to the gas tank, you should hear a humming from the fuel pump, if it is not making any sound then the pump is probably bad. If it is pumping then your fuel filter must be plugged.

Ran out of gas, now wont start


if it was out of gas completely, after filling with at least 5 gal, turn key on, without starting. You will hear pump come on. After pump stops, turn key off. Repeat this procedure three times an the engine should start after the third time.

Let me know,

Honda passport ran out of gas. now won't start. Could be gas filter?Put 5 gals of gas in tank. Will start with gas added to air flter intake, but won't stay running


It's possible that you have an air bubble in the fuel line. This blocks fuel from reaching the engine. To clear it, you will have to bleed the line at the fuel filter.

The other possibility is that the fuel pump is not working. Turn the ignition key to the on position. You should be able to hear the fuel pump humming. If not, check the fuel pump fuse, in the fusebox under the hood. If the fuse is ok, you will need to trouble-shoot the pump.

My 2001 cavalier ran out of gas, and now it wont start after putting gas in the tank. the engine cranks but wont start. could it be the pump?


You will need to check the fuel pressure. You will have a connection on the fuel line to the motor under the hood. No fuel pressure indicates one of three problems. Fuse in fuse box, relay in relay box under the hood or fuel pump located in fuel tank.
