Question about Cars & Trucks
Fuel shut off solenoid drops out and shuts engine down, starts again straightaway.... I think I fixed it: After 3 days of many dead ends and trials I managed to fix the problem by piggybacking another earth wire to the black wire (earth) on the fuel shut off solenoid to a good clean earth on the mower. The original earth wire must have had a poor contact making the coil on the fuel shut off solenoid drop out when the cooling fan cut in at high speed for reversing direction and drawing a lot of current. Will now clean up the original earth wire at the body end near the battery (not in a easy spot to get at).

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.
The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.
NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.
OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.

Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.

Hi You need to get the ecu checked for fault codes if there are none it is possibly low fuel pressure you should allso check this have you changed the fuel filter or opened any fuel lines this could introduce air
which will lower fuel pressure.Good luck Chris.

I wouldnt cut a hole cuz the tank is about an inch away from your body . It is possible cuz my buddy did it to his 91 TBI really slow camaro . He made a door and had to cut his metal fuel lines and use hose clamps and rubber fuel lines to put it back together . It wont work on a 4th gen unless you cut a huge hole . Its a total barefoot redneck way to do it . Ive changed 4 in my 3rd gen (autozone pumps) back in the day and 3 in my 4th gen . Its not a easy task but you will spend as much time trying to cut a hole and fish your high pressure lines out of the way and fishing the whole sending unit out of your fabricated hole not to mention its a unibody and doesnt need holes in it or GM woulda put a door in from the factory . Drop your muffler all your suspension and the two 18mm bolts from your rear control arms and drop the rearend . Everything is out of the way then its 2 15mm bolts to loosen your tank straps and pop off your fuel lines which are plastic on a 4th gen and metal on a 3rd , and your there . Pop your retainer ring change the pickup screen (sock) when you change the pump then reverse the process . It usually takes 4 or 5 hours of hardcore wrenching but it gets easy after you change a few .The exhaust was the hardest to get off for me working off jackstands with a basic tool set . Lol cut it all off and replace it with a flowmaster cat back , its way easier and you will love the sound especially with headers . Its your car but im sure that most everyone who knows how to wrench , especially f bodys like myself will agree with me . Ive had both my cars tore apart and my 96 TA is gettting a 500 horse lt1 built for it as we speak . Its sat for 3 years so ill have to change my pump again no doubt . Oh buy a good bran name pump like an original Ac Delco or a good aftermarket one from summitt
