The cheapest and easiest way to do it is check or REPLACE your fuel filter first. Next, if there's a way to safely check the fuel line before it gets to the engine, do it. Then you'll know wether it's the fuel pump. Good Luck

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

The engine turns over but the motor will not start. The van was running fine when it was cut off. It doesn't seem to be getting gas.


It's very likely your fuel pump has failed. Have somebody thump on the fuel tank while you're cranking the engine and see if it starts. If it does, replace the fuel pump. Otherwise get your fuel pressure checked, and check for spark. If no spark, check to make sure the distributor is turning(if applicable) If a 3.3 motor with no spark, suspect the crank sensor or cam sensor. Crank sensor is much easier to replace if experimenting.

My car doesn't start but the battery is fine. The engine fuses are fine. There is no fuel going into the engine. What could the problem be? I already replaced the fuel pump. my car is 96 Dodge grand...


put a funnel in the gas nozzle have someone turn ignition on to almost start, but don't. You should hear pump running before you start your van if you don't hear the pump you know you have a defective pump if you hear the pump purchase a fuel filter try that if not possibly could the relay not sure where its at but could finds out for you.good luck

If your not getting the MIL- engine light coming on and you can smell gas and you had the fuel pump replaced. I would sespect the electronic ignition module of being intermintent. It wouldn,t necessarily show as an engine code and would make it so the vehicle would run find one munite and not run the next The other thing you could check is the fuel filter however i can,t see a mechineic not changeing this with the fuel pump

Will not start. have ignition but will not start


if it seems to be getting fuel let it set for a few minute, turn on the key without cranking the engine, then crank engine do not step on the gas pedal. if it still doesn't start check your fuse. if the fuse is good, then your problem might start to get a little expensive.

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.
