SOURCE: Fuel pump/filter?

It sounds like it could be the pump, but if you don't know the history of the filter, just change it. It might sound silly but make sure there is enough gas in the tank, the pumps normaly whine when they pump air e.g. no fuel. If the problem is not solved after changing the fuel filter (15 minute job) then when you have the fuel pump out check that the fuel pickup is attached because the problem may lie there. When you change the fuel filter let the fuel drain from the fuel rail (engine side) just incase there is an obstruction of debris there, this would be rare but I have seen it.

yes, you will need to lower the tank to access the pump.

I have a bad feeling that your fuel pump is gone or a wiring problem. the fuel filter if not on the outside then it's in the tank. Try to bang the tank when someone is cranking it over. If it starts you need a fuel pump

Thears no fuel getting to my fuel injectures

Locate your fuel filter, it's underneath usually on the same side as your fuel fill cap. Disconnect the line going into the filter from the tank. Turn the ignition on(no need to crank it), if fuel comes out? your pump is good. Now reconnect the line, and disconnect the line on the other side of the filter, turn the ignition on, if no fuel comes out? then you know the filter is bad.

My 1991 saturn has no gas at filter zero gas flow what do i check 1st

First make sure you have lots of gas in the tank, between a quarter and half. Turn the ignition on and listen for a humming or buzzing noise coming from the tank. The fuel pump should run for a few seconds. If there is no noise you will have to check for a blown fuse. No bad fuses, change the fuel pump.
If the pump runs, remove the fuel line from the tank end of the filter and turn the key on for a secoond or 2. If there is lots of fuel then replace the filter. If fuel just dribbles replace the pump.
If you have to work on the fuel pump, make sure the electrical connections are not corroded and are not loose. Also check the rubber hoses at the connection. Sometimes they will go soft and collapse, plugging the fuel line. Make sure you put the fuel lines back on properly. Hope this helps.

Replace starter,an know engine wont start

loke to see if the engine has a valve on the fuel rail if so turn the key on and press the valve down if no fuel comes out or very little. try the same thing but take the fuel filter loose and try to see if pressure is there. you want to take the line loose before the filter tank side ( not for the tank but tank side.) if no pressure still recheck all fuses and relays( if you dont know how to check a relay just take a relay from something else that you know works and put it in it place if still no pressure fined the wires that go the the pump and check for power with a test light. you will need help with this because you will need to turn the key to the on pos but do not start and the power wire going to the pump will only be hot for a couple seconds. if you have power to the pump but no pressure replace pump. if you have no power no have a ect issue.

Starts and dies 5 times then won't start for 2 or 3 hours

If this happens mostly while idling - it is a strong indication that the fuel filter needs to be replaced.. Very common on these Caravans..
The fuel filter is located at the top of the tank and connects to the fuel line and the fuel pump via fixed hoses that are attached to the filter.. The tank will have to be lowered some what to get the hose fittings off.. Be very careful removing the fixed hose clips bacause if you disturb the 2 plastic goose-necks on the fuel pump that the hoses are connected too - the plastic goose-necks could break - and that would mean you would need a new fuel pump also..

Good luck..

Fuel pump/filter?

I would lean towards the pump. Some fuel pumps can be expensive, and it can be dangerous to work on fuel tanks, make sure your fuel tank is empty if you are going to remove it (they are deceivingly heavy)

from the description you gave, I would say your fuel pump is dying, and starting to fail. The whining noise is it struggling to do its job. You might find someone that can service the fuel pump (clean it, inspect it, fix worn out components and contacts, otherwise get it replaced.

My recommendation: Get a service technician (aka Mechanic) to take a look and ensure it is the fuel pump that has failed before you go buy a new one (because it may be a couple hundred dollars).
I hope this helps, Let me know what you find out.

PS - If you have never replaced the fuel filter, do it, they are rather cheap and easy to replace.

My fuel pump is not working right i took the line apart at the filter and then with the key in the on poistion unpluged the relay switch and pluged it back in to start the fuel pump the pump comes on every...

Yes fuel should come out when the pump is running. There is a little sock or filter at the end of the pick up tube in the fuel tank that feeds the fuel pump. This screen is very fine to filter out small particles. This sock is probably plugged up. To fix you will need to drop the fuel tank remove the sock and then clean out the debris from the tank. Even though the gas stations run filters off their pumps you still get floaters in your tank from the gas stations and if you tend to run your tank low always your sock will plug up eventually. If you turn the vehicle off it may restart again until the sock plugs again and then shut down.

Fuel starvation

Check the fuel pump, the fuel filter, and the return lines to the fuel tank. Any one of these things could cause a zero pressure condition in the fuel system.
