I changed the fuel pump,im getting gas to the fuel rail but none to the injectors


If gas is getting to the fuel rail, it is getting to injectors. If fuel pressure is good, probably the injector circuit is not working. With a test light you can check the injector circuit. Post back for further help. What year and make is the car?

Gas is getting to the gas filter but not to carb, put gas in the carb and the car will run tell the gas is gone,put a new filter on but still no go ! it's getting gas to the relief valve.


Check for engine diagnostic codes. See if that gives you any help.That's not a carb, by the way, you have fuel injection, so it's your air intake plenum. Good way to find out, though, that it seems to be a fuel related problem. Check your fuses for injector fuses that may be out. And, even though it's getting fuel up to the fuel rail, don't rule out the possibility that your fuel pressure might be low-check that with a fuel pressure gauge. Injectors can be tested to see if they are getting power with a little light called a "noid light" available at any parts store. You just plug it in to the injector connector, and crank engine. If light blinks rapidly, your injector circuit is working right. Try several injectors, maybe all of them, to be sure. Good luck, and keep trying, you'll find it.

Will running out of gas mess up your injectors?


usually not but if you have a lot of sediment in your tank it can mess up the fuel pump and rarely but on occasion components downstream but usually the fuel filter would catch that.

I removed the injector and fuel regulator assembly from the motor all in one piece, and left the electrical lines attatched in an attempt to see if the injectors were working. I attempted to start the van...


Yes, if everything is still connected properly, except that the injectors are no longer seated int he valve head, then you should see little spurts of gas coming from them when the engine turns over.

Be aware though, that it might not be your fuel injectors that are the problem. You need to finish checking the rest of the car before making that assumption.

Once you know the injectors aren't firing, you need to check the fuel filter and the fuel pump to make sure the gas is getting from the tank to the injectors.

You should have a fuel filter located on the passenger side of your car near the gas tank. Follow the gas lines under the car to find it. It is good to change it anyways, but you can check to see if gas is coming from the tank to the filter by removing the rear line

** BE CAREFUL, Gasoline is EXTREMELY irritating to the eyes and skin, and it WILL come out when you remove the line from the filter***

If it is coming from the tank to the filter you don't have to check your pump. Then replace the rear gas line, and remove the front gas line going to the engine and make sure the filter spits out gas while the engine turns over as well.

If there is no gas getting to the fuel filter, you will need to check your fuel pump, which should be located inside the gas tank. You can check it by getting under the car while you have a friend turn the key to the "on" position, but not starting the car. Do this 4 to 6 times to make sure you hear a little "Click, woosh" type sound that lets you know the pump is triggering.

If you have gas coming from the tank, through the filter and it is still not coming through the injectors, then you will need to rebuild your fuel injectors.

This is not hard to do, and consists mostly of changing the little gaskets in the injectors. But be aware that there are lots of small parts and the job cannot be rushed. Also be aware that lumina fuel injection systems are very sensitive. Make sure to disconnect your battery cables before removing the injectors from the system.

Cannot get 1987 chevy van 20 to keep running... stalls out


Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.
