Feul Pump Replacement for 1999 Olds Silhouette?

All you may have to do to confirm power to your fuel pump, is to turn the key to on (not start) and listen for a "humming" from gas tank area. If you hear a hum, you have power going to pump, if not, then start thinking relays, fuses etc. Do you get the "Hum". How did you arrive at it being pump for sure, what tests did you perform?

My 2001 olds silhouette van will run great for months and then all of a sudden will not start for no apparent reason. It will make a weird electrical noise and the gages will run backwards. How do we fix...

Not sure about the noise you are hearing. These types of problems are really tough when thay cannot be duplicated. It sounds like you have a corroded or poor connection to the starter or battery. I would remove the cable ends to the battery and clean very well wether they looked bad or not. Look for any ground wires that are bolted to the block of the engine or the firewall of the engine compartment and clean/reconnect as needed. Check to see if any are loose as this can cause a poor connection as well. Do the same at the starter. Good Luck.
