Check the fuel pressure at the shredder Valve, make sure you have 60 to 65psi readings with the fuel line pressurized and it should drop about 5psi when the engine is running. Check also the fuse and the relay. The fuel relay on the 1996 S10 is in the glove box behind the panel labeled relay, there should be three in there and the middle one is for the fuel pump. The other thing to that may have happened that is always over looked when replacing the fuel pump is the sending unit wire harness from the Frame to the unit, it cost around $15,00 and should have been replaced the same time the fuel sending unit due to corrosion. Good luck and hope this helps and it would not hurt to replace the fuel filter again, just in case you picked up dirty fuel.

Does or did the check engine light come on? When you had the fuel pump hotwired did it or will it - start the motor and run? If yes to first question then have the codes read. Did you check all fuses and relays for the fuel pump.Check fuel pump pressure once you get the fuel pump working.And if you feal the spark is weak then replace the ignition coil, check distributor cap and rotter replace if nesessary.And there is a little discrepency in your add I do not know if I am dealing with a 91 or a 98 chevy? Good Luck and have a good XMASS.

Assuming you have everything reinstalled correctly and the fuel pump was your problem to start with, try disconnecting the battery for at least 15 minutes to reset the computer. This worked on my 1996 Blazer.

I have a 96 dodge stratus the wont start trys to turn over but wont start, changed plugs, fuel pump, and fuel injector and the fuel regulator sensor. any ideas on what is wrong with it?


Have you tried spraying starter fluid in the air intake and cranking it? If it starts for a few seconds at least you know that it is a fuel problem and not electrical. You could also check each of the plugs for spark but I prefer the first method. Good luck!

1991 chevy 350 urns over fast but wont start. then another time it will start


Sounds like a stubborn fuel pump. Try a squirt of starter fluid in the intake and see if it fires. If it fires change fuel filter first and try. If it doesn't work change pump.
