I have a 92 wrangler 4.0 six 5 speed. It would not start and the fuel pump is quite noisy. I could not hear it. So I check the relay and replaced it with a new spare I carry and nothing I smacked the gas...


the ASD relay shuts off 3 things
1 spark
2: fuel pump
3: and kills injector power.

you guessed and he guessed.
so>>>>
when the car cranks and not start, we scan it next
or if no scan tool, you are left with the key on 3 times get codes test/

if you key on and the CEL lamp is dead that means the ECU is dead
or fuse bad, cracked or rusty.

when the pump goes dead, make sure the ASD energizes
or its all just a waste of time back aft.
the ASD closes for about 2 seconds,
the pump runs too.
if the ECU sees errors during the cranking for 2 seconds.
the ECU drops the ASD and PUMP dead.
by law. too. the anti crash and burn logic is inside the ECU/PCM

the 91-92 ,we have no cheap scan tools until 1993.so....
to fix any modern car EFI it takes a scan tool or lots of labor
so get in the car, crank for 5 seconds as that service manual chapter 8d tells you, then release the key, then turn off and on 3 times
inside 3 seconds, and see the CEL flash out codes.
(no DRB scan tool that is all you get there)
if no hope still.
see the 7-8 ways the ASD Can drop here.
your car is older, and less ways to drop out.

ALSO
you said smack tank, sure.
but ment , smack it, then get in car and pump runs 2 seconds key on, right,,
did you consider the ground wire to the pump is bad.?
did you condsider the power wire or pins bad, in cars harness
and the smacking jarred thosE>?

I use a voltmeter, to find all this when failed.
my guess, your mech, didnt do that first?
if he did, and 12vdc is across pump for 2 seconds pump is bad.
if he did and 0v or low, low volts is across pump pins the its not the pump or is wire, connectors, to pump (harness et al)
or ASD DID THIS ON PURPOSE>

next would be measure all 4 ASD pins,
see whats going no here, and pump relay pins
while failed.
Diagnosing, it after it self cures it self is near impossible.

96 sonoma fuel guage stays on 3/4 full.


You may have jarred the sender unit in the tank, got it stuck, maybe. Try rapping on the tank a bit and see if it causes the gauge to move. Otherwise you may need to take the sender unit out of the tank for inspection.

I have a 2003 Kia sedona ran out of igas now wont start the code I get say crank posistioning sensor will that cut or cause the fuel pump not to work cause I get no humming from it the code is p0335


No this does not affect the fuel pump. It will affect the spark though. Hit the gas tank in the center a few times. If it starts then replace the fuel pump. Unfortunetly pumps with a few yaers on them will die when ran out of gas. If it doesn't start pull one of the spark plug wires, insert a screwdriver and put it close to the engine. crank the engine and watch for a spark. if there is no spark then replace the crank shaft sensor. before you replace the fuel pump.

I sounds like you have an electrical problem with the dashboard. It will have to be pulled and checked.

I had the same problem with the gas tank on my 95 mustang. You are going to have to drop the tank. There is a rubber seal where the filler neck goes into the gas tank that has failed and must be replaced. You are losing even more gas than you think. Everytime you make a left turn gas is sloshing out through that bad seal.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am Fuel Problems


The gas guage has a sending unit in the tank attached to the pump, there is a small circuit board on it that has smal"fingers" that send the signal to the guage.These get worn off and thus sends a false reading to the gas guage in the dash. The gas tank must be removed and a new unit put in to solve the problem. I had to do this repair to mine. As for the gas issue, just try pulling the nozzle back out of the filler neck when putting gas in, sometimes the overflow tube gets plugged up and won't allow the air to escape as the gas goes in the tank, making the gas pump think the car is full, pulling the nozzle will allow the air to escape. Hope this helps.

Fuel guage reads 1/4 at all times even when full. How do I repair


1.If the needle on the guage is stuck. you can try tapping the guage to see if the needle moves or turn the ignition on and off a few times to see if you can get it to move. If the guage drops to empty when you turn off the ignition you know that its not the guage. (note that the guage does not drop to zero when ignition is off with all cars of this age).

2. The problem could be with the sensor in the fuel tank itself. Rocking the vehicle up and down from the rear (you will need help doing this) may free the sensor level indicator ball in the tank.
