2008 chevy express 3500 6.0 fuel pump no power was driving it and it just quit replaced pump still nothing just cranks over


Engine cranking, did you check for spark at the plugs, also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
When you first turn on the key, no crank, can you hear the pump run for a couple seconds?
If only a fuel issue, jump the relay to see if pump will run. Unplug relay, use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, the pump should run, don't need to use your key. As you can see, terminal 30 is hot all the time. Also, check that fuse.
Let us know what you find?

On my 1999 plymouth breeze 2.0 sohc. it cranks but wont start. Relays , fuses are good. But i dont hear the fuel pump


First key on you should hear pump run a couple seconds if you think it's the pump have someone crank it over and another pound on the fuel tank this sometimes makes the pump motor start to run, if it does that may be enough for you to drive to a shop for a new fuel pump.

Car parked for 1 month, would not start,no pressure at the fuel reg at valve


Hi the fuel pump is just a bit dry and needs a bit of encouragement try spreading about 50 mml of fuel over the air filter.Try that a couple of times if it doesnt work Im afraid your fuel pump has given up the ghost

1995 xj6, stopped at a stop light, transmission fault code came on and engine quit. Cranks over fine but will not start. Ran perfect before that.


One possible problem that is quite common with these cars is a bad crank position sensor. when they go, it will give a crank no start. The trans code is from the stall. other potential problems bad fuel pump or fuse / relay for same, the IAC could cause a stall, but if you modulate the throttle you could get it to a least fire up a bit, same with TPS, and EGR. I would start with the fuel tpump fuse (make sure you can hear the pump building pressure, then try the CKPS, it's $110 and easy to install front passenger side of engine 10:00 one bolt and one plug. Take your time with the plug it's a squeeze and pull. the only hard part is working around the top rad hose. fuel pump would be last as it's in the tank

On first crank fuel pump doesnt hold pressure and has to be cranked on for several seconds


sounds like its not working properly, the fuel pump pumps or it does't, then goes to regulator this is where pressure is adjusted. check fuel pressure with gauge, sometimes even new fuel pumps don't pump enough fuel. most fuel injected cars have over 50 pounds pressure.

Ive replaced the fuel pump twice in two weeks with a used 99 dodge intrepid fuel pump and both times they crank the car one time and then quits


the car cranking over has nothing to do with the fuel pump
The car will crank all day(with a good battery and no fuel pump
If the cranks one time and then quits you need to be looking at the starting system NOT fuel system

1992 cadillac deville ....parked it at night and in the morning battery was dead and car wouldnt start. Charged the battery and now it cranks but will not start. if you let it sit for a minute and then try...


does it have three second fuel pump run when you turn key to run position/ in between you should let i rest 5 or so seconds then try it again also some of these cadilacs have oil pressure sending unit wich takes the duty of keeping fuel pressure up is fuel pressure lowering as engine quits eg. rev up some in your few seconds of running while the engine is quit momentum keeps it turning for a short time see if you r pressure maintain thru the wind down

My car won't start on first try...ever


Welcome to jaguar ownership, thats a known issue w/ jaguar, the fuel pump doesnt get actuated on the first crank, however on the second it does fine. I ended up just jogging the ignition on and off before starting, then cranking the engine. car starts every time with that method.
