Cranks,idles but when you give it gas it wants to die.


You are either experiencing an ignition issue or a fuel delivery issue.
Preliminarily, if the CHECK ENGINE light is on, use an ODB reader to readout all stored codes, and use them as a guide to determine if there are any sensor faults or other issues that need to be addressed. Also, check for signs of vacuum leaks from broken or loose vacuum lines, both under the hood and under the dash (listen for an air escaping sound under the dash while the engine is idling, and find the leaks that way).
Then, start with diagnosing for a fuel delivery issue. Go ahead and replace the fuel filter (it's likely due, since the car is over 11 years old anyway), and notice if there is rust in the fuel filter. If there is significant rust or something that looks like gelatine, replace all fuel in the vehicle. That may solve your issue. If the issue still exists, check for proper pressure at the fuel rail. If the pressure is low, replace the fuel pressure regulator. If the pressure is still low, or if the fuel pump has been making more noise than usual, replace the fuel pump and be sure to replace the intake strainer.
Next, if the issue still exists, perform a major tune-up, making sure to replace the plug wires. If spark is weak, replace the coil pack(s). If new codes emerge during the process, address those. If all else fails, suspect a defective ECU (expensive but not awful).

Dose a 2000 taurus lx have a single or dual port fuel injection and is the coil pack for one cylinder or is it a pack for all cylinders?


depends on the type of engine. DOHC engine has coil on plug ignition system where the OHV has a coil pack with spark plug wires going to it. Both engines only have one fuel injector per cylinder.

Changing dashboard light


Hi,

This solution will be of great help to you,even in the case of future or other dashboard problems;
Instrument cluster consists of electronic analog gauges, various warning lights, and optional tachometer. Vehicles equipped with tachometer have an electronic vacuum fluorescent transmission range indicator (PRND3L),odometer and trip odometer display. Vehicles without tachometer are equipped with a cable-operated transmission range indicator.
Instrument cluster is equipped with the following warning lights:
Battery voltage.
Cruise (speed control).
Door ajar.
Fasten seat belt.
Lift gate ajar.
Low fuel level.
Low windshield and washer level.
Traction Control.
The Body Control Module (BCM), which receives input from various sensors, sends display information to instrument cluster and operates gauges. Instrument cluster incorporates a self-test diagnostic feature to identify electronic problems. BCM, Powertrain Control Module (PCM), and Transmission Control Module (TCM) are continuously monitored by the diagnostic system.

SELF-DIAGNOSTICS
With ignition off, press and hold TRIP and RESET buttons while turning ignition switch to ON position. Continue to hold TRIP and RESET buttons until odometer window displays CODE (approximately 5 seconds). If problem exists, system will display diagnostic trouble codes. See DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART table. If no problem exists, Code 999 (end test) will be displayed.
DIAGNOSTIC CODE CHART
CodeDescription
110.......Cluster Memory Fault
111.......Cluster Calibration Fault
905.......No CCD Bus Message From TCM
921.......Odometer Fault From BCM
940.......No CCD Bus Message From PCM

After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:
Dim test.
Calibration test.
Odometer segment test.
Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
Dim Test
CHEC-0 will be displayed in odometer window. Instrument cluster will dim Vacuum Florescent (VF) display. If VF displays do not dim, a problem in instrument cluster exists. See BODY CONTROL COMPUTER TESTS in BODY CONTROL COMPUTER article.
Calibration Test
CHEC-1 will be displayed in odometer window. Each of instrument cluster gauges will move sequentially through each calibration point. See GAUGE CALIBRATIONS table. If gauge needle is not calibrated properly, a problem in instrument cluster exists.

Odometer Segment Test
CHEC-2 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of odometer will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.
Electronic Transmission Range Indicator Segment Test
CHEC-3 will be displayed in odometer window. Each segment of electronic transmission range indicator will light sequentially. If any segment does not light, replace instrument cluster.

Fuel pump seems to be working, new fuel filter..but the truck will not turn over or start...while trying this you can flood it...what's up? oh but if you spray a spot of ether into it (yes i know, not...


I'n not sure what engine you have in this but some of these needed 60 + psi of fuel pressure to start when the engine was cool or cold. If it had only 59 psi they would crank and crank but never fire and run however they would get just enough fuel to act sort of flooded for a few seconds once they did start. A bit of external fuel and Bingo, they would start and run all day...until they sat for several hours again then the whole process was repeated. I would start by verifying your fuel pressure and go from there. If you find less than 60 psi when cranking then you most likely have a fuel pump that's just a bit weak. OEM pumps work best on this one if you ever have to replace it.

How to change the fuel pump on a 1996 Pontiac Transport


For 1996 Pontiac Truck Trans Sport 3.4L SFI 6cyl check this procedure for Fuel Pump... there are two different electric fuel pumps used:
- A medium pressure twin turbine pump for vehicles equipped with Throttle Body Injection (TBI). - A high pressure roller vane pump for vehicles equipped with Sequential Fuel Injection (SFI).
(see Figure 1)


d7f6f20.jpg


Fig. 1: View of the fuel pump assembly and related components
The fuel pump is mounted to the fuel sender assembly inside the fuel tank. The fuel is pumped to the engine at a specified flow and pressure by the fuel pump. Excess fuel is returned to the fuel tank by the return pipe. The fuel pump delivers a constant flow of fuel to the engine even during low fuel conditions and aggressive vehicle maneuvers.

CAUTION When working on or near the fuel tank, be sure to observe the information molded on the bottom of the tank.
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
(see Figure 2)

Fig. 2: Exploded view of the fuel pump-to-tank mounting components
  1. Drain and remove the fuel tank.
  2. Remove the fuel sender assembly.
  3. Disassemble the fuel pump strainer and the fuel pump: Note the position of the strainer in relation to the pump.
(see Figure 3)

Fig. 3: Remove the fuel tank locking ring with a non-sparking (brass) punch.
  1. Support the fuel pump in one hand, and grab the strainer in the other hand.
    1. Rotate strainer in one direction and pull off pump. Discard strainer.
(see Figure 4)

Fig. 4: Exploded view of the fuel pump components
    1. Remove deflector.
  1. Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector.
  2. Loosen the two connecting clamps, if equipped.
  3. Place the fuel sender assembly upside down on the work bench.
    1. Pull the fuel pump downward to remove it from the mounting bracket, then tilt the pump outward and remove it from the connecting hose or the fuel pulse dampener.
  4. It is recommended to replace the hose and clamps, if equipped.
CAUTION Do not run the pump unless submerged in fuel
To install:
  1. Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose. Attach the pump electrical wires and fasten the hose clamps to the attaching hose and around the pump body, where equipped.
  2. Place the fuel tank sender and pump assembly into the fuel tank. Use a new O-ring seal during assembly.

Hope this help (remember rated this).

I have a '97 chevy tahoe. the engine cranks, but won't start. checked trouble codes & got cycliner misfire, O2 sensor, & catalytic converter codes. i've replaced plugs & wires. still won't...


first, check all the fuses
did you check to see if there's spark at spark plugs?
did you check the fuel pressure? you need to do that to isolate fuel and ignition system.
if there is no fuel then check for fuel pump operation
if there is no spark then check the ignition system (coil, module and wirings)
if you don't have either one then the problem is in the computer system such as crank sensor, and computer itself

How to remove fuel tank


Run the fuel tank empty, if possible. The Jimmy's tank does not have a drain plug, but if the pump is still operating, then it is the only method of running the tank dry. An empty tank is lighter than a full one, and it makes removal easier.

Unbolt the fuel tank's protective shield by turning its hex-head bolts in a counterclockwise direction. The shield will then slide out. With it removed, the tank's bolts are now accessible

Disconnect the electrical and fuel line connections to the tank's fuel pump, located on the top center front of the tank. There are two (or three) different-sized fuel lines, and one wiring adapter plug that must be disconnected. The hoses come off by pinching or unscrewing their hose clamps, and the plug simply pulls free once its catch is depressed.

Unbolt the fuel tank by turning the bolts that hold it to the frame counterclockwise. The tank should be supported with a jack during this process, as once the tank is freed it will drop from the frame. Lower the tank out of the truck and use the jacks to set it aside to work on it.

If you going to replace the fuel pump:

Unscrew the two screws holding the fuel pump to the tank by turning them in a counterclockwise direction. Once they are out, the pump can be gently pulled upwards and out of the tank. Some residual fuel may spill out, so have a towel handy.

Replace the fuel pump by lowering it into place inside the tank, then securing its screws in a clockwise direction. The plastic fuel pump may be easily damaged by turning the screws too far, so only tighten them enough to seal the pump to the tank.

Replace the fuel tank into the truck with the jack(s), and tighten the bolts that secure it to the frame in a clockwise direction.

Reconnect the fuel lines and adapter plug. The fuel lines are sized for their nipple fittings, and should only fit onto the nipple that they were designed for. Tighten each one with a hose clamp. The wiring adapter plug should make a "snap" sound when it is properly seated.

Fill the tank with fuel and test the new pump. The pump should make an audible whine as the truck is started, and the whine should stop after a couple of seconds. The pump might make a softer sound after the truck is started--this is normal.

After two tanks of fuel has gone through, replace the fuel filter.

Good luck and hope this helps, Note the bolt that holds the gas tank strap may strip or snap. Just cut it off and replace by welding a new bolt for the gas tank strap.
