I have a1994 ford explorer and it wont stay started i change the fuel pump the crank the coil pack but it still wont stay started


I'm not familiar this vehicle, but hope this information is of some help, first of all is your vehicle diesel if so does it have a priming bulb inside the engine compartment if so is solid if your try to squeeze it if the answer is no get the ford stared dash to the compartment and pump the bulb till it's solid if that works until you manually stop the engine then I know what the problem is. not many people know this but actually inside the fuel tank is a primer pump that pressurises the fuel line up to the priming bulb to make it solid at all times. This may need replacing if what I said above is what your experiencing, the fuel primer pump is usually located from the top of the tank. as I said I'm not familiar with you vehicle so it's only a suggestion of the possible cause of your problem.

Good Luck.

you got it in one, you have an air leak, it may be a seal on your fuel filter (you can over tighten them and damage the seal) a cracked fuel line, my toyota had a bad valve in the lift pump and that allowed fuel to drain back to tank, fun times ahead, all you can do to start is look for leaks

How do we replace the fuel pump in a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu?


Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to install/replace fuel pump for your Chevy malibu.


•1
Raise the rear of the vehicle and place jack stands under the pinch welds on the lower body rocker panel. There are reinforced areas here that are designed to support the weight of the vehicle. Lower the car onto the jack stands and remove the floor jack. Unscrew the fuel filler cap to help relieve pressure that builds up in the tank due to fuel evaporation.
•2
Disconnect the plastic fuel lines leading from the tank to the front of the vehicle by pushing in on the line while depressing the quick disconnect fittings. Unplug the vapor return line and the fuel pump's electrical connector. Remove the fuel filler neck hose by loosening the hose clamps with a screwdriver and prying the hose loose with a large pry bar.
•3
Remove the two rubber exhaust system hangers located near the rear of the exhaust. This will allow the exhaust to move when removing the fuel tank. Remove the metal heat shield from the bottom of the car.
•4
Place the floor jack under the fuel tank, with a large flat piece of wood between the jack and the tank, and lift the tank slightly. This will take the weight of the tank off the straps attaching the tank to the undercarriage of the car. Remove the straps holding the tank to the body of the car, and lower the fuel tank. Slide the fuel tank past the exhaust system, and out from underneath the car.
•5
Remove the fuel pump assembly by turning the spring-loaded retaining ring with the hammer and chisel. Lift the whole assembly out of the fuel tank by lifting the assembly up and then rotating it over to clear the level sensor arm. Unsnap the top, and separate the plastic housing to gain access to the fuel pump. Remove the fuel pump electrical connector, and remove the pump from the assembly by pushing the pump up and over until it clears the assembly.
•6
Install the new pump into the assembly using the new rubber coupler and the new vibration cushion supplied with the pump. Plug the electrical connector into the new pump, and snap the two halves of the plastic housing back together. Install the assembly back into the tank, and rotate the spring-loaded retainer using the hammer and chisel.
•7
Reposition the tank under the car, and lift the tank into place with the floor jack. Install and tighten the retaining straps, heat shield and filler neck hose clamps. Reinstall the exhaust system hangers. Plug the electrical connector back into the assembly. Reconnect the fuel lines and vapor line.
•8
Lower the vehicle off the jack stands and prime the fuel system by cycling the ignition key from off to run a few times. Start the engine and check for leaks

My 89 Chevy C1500 just died while I was driving it. Coasted to a safe spot, and after countless tries seems like it's just not getting fuel to the engine. My question is: Where is the fuel pump located? I...


It is in the tank. Spray some carburetor spray into the throttle body. Then try to start if momentarily starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. Sometimes the hose inside the tank that is connected to the fuel pump is rotted away and jsut dumping fuel back into the tank. In order to fix fuel pump and or hose must remove tank. I suggest just lifting the bed at and angle to squeeze in just enough to pull the pump out. Tank is on drivers side.

I have replaced fuel filter in range rover and i cannot get air out of diesel fuel? and it now not starting straight away


When you replaced the fuel filter, was it half empty of fuel ? if it was , then its the fuel lift pump thats faulty. Rotate the engine till the cam allows a full stroke of the fuel lift pump primer handle, check the amount of movement of the primer handle and feel of it, that is , can you feel it pulling fuel. If the movemnt is small, then you need to change the pump.

How to Change a Fuel Pump in a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria


STEPS TO CHANGE FUEL PUMP
  1. Park the vehicle in a safe place and make sure there is enough room around the back of the vehicle for you to work and move tools around.
  2. Start the engine and let it idle while you relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump fuse or relay from the fuse box. Wait a few seconds for the engine to stall, turn the ignition key off and replace the relay or fuse.
  3. Raise the back of your car using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.
  4. Disconnect the fuel tank filler pipe and the fuel pump connector located above the cross member underneath the vehicle.
  5. Disconnect the vapor tube from the tee connector on the right side of the car-passenger side-and the vapor line from the canister tube.
  6. Support the fuel tank with a jack and remove the nuts from the holding strap using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Move the strap away and lower the fuel tank. Discard the fuel tank mounting studs.
  7. Unplug the pressure transducer electrical connector located on the top rear corner of the fuel tank.
  8. Clean the area around the fuel pump mounting flange and remove the flange mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern.
  9. Lift the fuel pump assembly off the tank. Replace the new fuel pump in the assembly and install the assembly in the tank. Install the flange screws and torque to 89 inch lbs. (10Nm) using a crisscross pattern.
  10. Raise the fuel tank to its mounting position, install the strap using new mounting studs and torque the nuts to 26 foot lbs. (35 Nm).
  11. Connect the fuel pressure transducer electrical connector, vapor tube to the tee connector, vapor line to the canister tube, fuel tank filler pipe and fuel pump electrical connector.
  12. Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.
