454? Since you said you cut lots of computer stuff, likely your way out of this is to hot wire and fuse pump to "run" side of the ignition switch. You may also need to change pump/regulator later if it can't keep up with engine demand as well.

    Not real familiar on mods to that is to talk to an engineer at B&M or some other race trans manufacturer. They do that stuff all the time. If they make a manual valve body, that would likely solve the problem but I'm not sure what the cost is.

Catera 2000 Catera wont start, acts like no gas, fuel pump not heard,

Click on the link for fuel pump wiring, note the fuses. Use a gage and check fuel pressure.
Key on engine off, can you hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds? If not, have to check wiring circuits and fuses--grounds, possibly a fuel pump issue?
Engine cranking do you have spark at the plugs, I'm just trying to decide if more than one issue? Any applicable trouble codes?

I have a 1987 ford ranger the engine turns over but it wont start

Spark at plugs? Fuel filter? Pressure on injector delivery line? Pressure relief valve? You may be able to measure fuel pressure at the pressure relief valve location. and return line. If you have spark, I'd say it's a fuel supply problem

95 ford mustang fuel delivery problem no power to pump

Check to see if fuel has stopped getting to the motor, also make sure the fuse hasn't blown again. Its possible to have gotten a bad pump. Also the injectors and a few other things are usually on the same circuit so if the fuse blows can be other items causing the issue like shorted wire to ground. I had and issue a ways back same as yours and the pump wasn't sending juice to the motor, fuse kept blowing and I swapped pumps (nothing). Then I got a wiring diagram of the system the fuse was blowing on and come to find out one of the wires to the injectors was shorting to the intake manifold due to chaffing 2 wires had rubbed the insulation off and were touching grounding out. Problem fixed with some electrical take and zip ties and no more fuses blown since.

Stalls and don't hear the fuel pump and won't start but after an hour it will turn on and start why???

First thing i would check is the wiring to the fuel pump, theres a possibility that a broken or frayed wire going to the pump is causing the pump to intermittently operate then stop, after ruling out any wiring problems check the fuel pump relay if possible obtain one from a salvage yard or simply swap the horn relay with the fuel pump relay im not sure if there the same on your particular model if they are swap them if not try and get one, lastly if all of those things check out you probably have a fuel pump going bad and will need to remove the gas tank to access the pump to replace it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Removing injectors from fuel rail 84245032.gif
Fig. 2: Make sure injectors rotate freely in cylinder head 84245033.gif
  1. Relieve fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove intake air hose between throttle body and intercooler.
  3. Remove accelerator cable.
  4. Unclamp PCV and fuel return hoses from deliver pipe.
  5. Unclamp injector wiring harness.
  6. Disconnect injector coupler.
  7. Remove cold start injector pipe from delivery pipe.
  8. Remove vacuum hose from pressure regulator.
  9. Remove fuel feed hose from delivery pipe.
  10. Remove pressure regulator from delivery pipe.
  11. Remove delivery pipe with injectors.
  12. Remove injectors from delivery pipe. To install:
  13. Replace injector O-rings and lubricate with fuel. NOTE: Make sure injectors rotate smoothly. If not, probable cause is incorrect installation of O-ring.
  14. Check if insulator is scored or damaged. If it is, replace with new one.
  15. Connect delivery pipe with injectors.
  16. Install pressure regulator to delivery pipe using a new O-ring.
  17. Install fuel feed hose to delivery pipe.
  18. Install vacuum and fuel return hoses to pressure regulator and clamp securely.
  19. Install cold start injector pipe to delivery pipe using new gaskets.
  20. Install injector coupler. Clamp injector wiring harness.
  21. Install PCV hose to cylinder head.
  22. Install throttle position sensor coupler.
  23. Install accelerator cable and adjust free-play.
  24. Install intake air hose to throttle body and intercooler.

1997 Jetta GT 2.0 Stopped running,cranks,will not start

Checking for spark is really simple while fuel delivery is more complicated because of the the way it is metered for delivery. On VW's a fuel pump relay is used and a jumper cable connected to relay box. This controls the fuel pump to deliver fuel manually. With a fuel pressure gauge connected to the line from the pump continued withing the system, you assess whether you have correct fuel pressure, maintain it within a specif duration. Electronic fuel injectors do stick or stay open causing very poor or no start condition. Make sure you have fuel delivery since you are positive that spark is present.

Have a 1988 s/10 blazer. came with a 2.8 ENGINE.Swap it out to a 350. have 5 wires that went to the bottom driver side of the 2.8 motor that attached to two seperate oil sending units.The 350 has a manual...

Bypass the whole system and wire the relay for the fuel pump straight to an igintion on sorce.
Gm made that system so the fuel pump would shut down if oil pressure was lost, to try and save an engine!
Sounds like a neat project, what engine did you put into the truck. If it's a fuel injected engine the fuel pump for the old 2.8 may not have enough for it. you may end up needing a inline pump like you can buy at all of the "performance" web sites. Also if it's a carb engine then the pump may be to much, and keep unseating the seats! These are just thoughts going through my head, you may have already thought this through?
Good luck with the project, it will be a tire burning SOB. Oh and be careful with that little 7.25" rear end that was in there from the factory, they break with just a 4.3 and you are adding a couple more HP to the mix!
