I had to change fuel pump in November and now truck had been running fine now the truck has stalled as i hit the breaks and will not restart

When you changed the fuel pump did you change the fuel filter? I changed mine in my expedition 3 months ago and also changed the filter. Reason to change is because a fuel pump usually fails because of a semi clogged filter. The pump has to pump a lot harder thus it burns out. First i would check to see if pump is running. Have someone turn the key on and listen with the gas cap off. If you hear the pump engage then it may be a clogged filter. If you dont hear the pump then it maybe your pump reset. My pump reset is located on the passenger side front seat just in front of the door. Plastic shield must be taken off. There is a red button that you need to depress to re engage the pump circuit. Once you depress then it should start. Check your manual for pump reset location. Good luck

Why the oil light came on and off, I had change the new pump,pick up screen, and change the oil sending unit ?

Most likely the oil pump light will come on if the oil pressure is low. This light is based on a pressure sensor. Your oil pump is likely not operating to deliver the required pressure. Check that your pump is installed properly.

1996 ford escort, new fuel pump, but car hesitates when I pull around a corner, dies then starts immediately

have you put the fuel pump in right sounds like the fuel is not getting to the pump. did you change the filter on the bottom of the pump. could also be a bad wire to the pump and movement is knocking out the power to the pump. also when you changed the pump did you take out the relay for the pump? before changing the pump.

No simple diagram for changing the fuel pump. It is located inside the gas tank. The gas tank needs to be removed to change the pump. The pump is part of an assembly which consists of the pump, fuel gauge sender and pick up. You also need to change the fuel filter when you change the pump. It should take a professional mechanic about 3 hours to drain the fuel out of the tank, remove the tank, change the pump and fuel filter. Multiple the mechanic's time by whatever the repair shop charges per hour for labor. There are several different pump assemblies for the vehicle. Price depends on whether it's 2 or 4 doors and 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best guess is about $600 total.

Do you have to change the water pump when changing the timing belt/timing?

You don't have too, but not bad idea, the timing belt drives the water pump, if you just replace timing belt, and not water pump, water pump could go out and mess up the timing belt, now it has to be done all over again, timing belt, water pump and labor.

2003 kia rio- water pumps

I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

Fuel issues?

since changing the pump makes a difference even for a short time, I believe you are on the right track with that. What you need to do is determine why after changing the pump the problem re-appears. What you need to do is check the fuel pressure at the throttle body, comparing "new" pressure to pressure from a non-working pump. You also need to check voltage at the pump to see if it changes. It may help to put an additional ground wire spliced into the existing one back at the pump harness...a poor ground will cause the pump to overheat and fail. I assume that when you changed the pump you completely drained the tank and cleaned it out so there is no issue there? Changing the pump will not change the operation of engine controls so I don't see a connection there. Pressure regulator may be an issue, but most fail to the "rich" side and you would know that right away...changing the pump would actually make that worse, not better. So, that leaves testing to find out the why of it.

Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery
