SOURCE: im trying to locate the fuse for the fuel pump on my 2001 dodge s

it's likely located in the fuse panel in the engine compartment near the battery. not exactly sure which relay it is... if you are lucky it's marked on the inside bottom of the cover that you have to remove to get to the relays.

A carburetor type engine has the pump on the engine near the front on the side--trace the fuel line down. Fuel injected engines have the pump located in the fuel tank.

SOURCE: We have a 1986 Dodge Colt Vista Wagon runs but won't move.

It sounds as if the seals have cracked or broken. Depending on how long it sat, and the service history, it may be very hard to do anything but have it inspected for pressure to determine that, at a transmission shop.

I would suggest seeing if you can get a free estimate, hopefully, a low cost tow.

You may start looking for an imported Japanese transmission to replace it, usually those come with a warranty and are much less expensive even with shipping, than having one rebuilt.

Of course, then there's the longevity issue, newly rebuilt should last years and provide a good return on the investment if the rest of the car is worth that much of an investment.

I will warn you, the newer fuel systems are designed to handle the fuel that will soon be used across the country. I don't know how long, but before long the older cars will have to be retrofitted with new fuel pumps, lines, hoses, and other fuel related parts due to the increased ethanol/methanol and additives. I just sold my 94 Stealth and that was definitely a consideration for me as it's expensive to change those items out for new ones made with newly designed seals.
good luck

Need a diagram to see the big hose (how to replace it) from the fuel tank to the fuel cap where you put the gas in, it leaks out before it gets into the tank.


If you can't see it, after lifting the car then try autozone or any online parts store that might display the location of the part in your car. I have not seen all vehicles but if you plan to replace it and have the info on the part, you should be able to trace the part.

Should I consider buying a '86 Dodge Colt Vista? I've had the Vista Wagon with Mitsubishi engine, manual transmission, and loved it. I haven't looked at the car yet, but am I asking for MAJOR trouble?


It is 24 years old and you might have trouble locating parts if you need to repair it. I would tell you for the right price any car can be a deal but you may spend more then it's worth if you are walking instead of driving.

Where is the fuel pump located on 1988 Chrysler Conquest?

Fig. 2 Fuel pump mounting on station wagon models

Some early models and all turbocharged or fuel injected cars are equipped with an electric fuel pump. On the early models the fuel pump is mounted in the trunk on sedans and hardtops and in the left rear wheel housing on station wagons. On the turbocharged Colt and fuel injected Vista, the fuel pump is in the gas tank. On the Conquest, it is on the frame rail, behind the left rear wheel, and on later models is located on the fuel tank.

On late Conquest models, the fuel pump is tank mounted. It is necessary to remove the fuel tank for fuel pump service. Refer to the Colt/Vista procedure.

Hope helped.

I dont know which is the fusible for the lights.


Not sure about the colt - but not other dodge has fusible links - all others use cartridge (flat, 2-prong) fuses.

Yours are identified on the fuse cover plate.
