Why did you replace the fuel pump if the car was running ok?check if you did not mix up the fuel lines where they connect to the pump.

check fuses and relays fuel pumps pressurize for a couple of seconds then hum stops -check for pressure at fuel rail - power at relay and power to and at pump and inspect the connections at each and pump is in fuel tank but with rear seat access remove rear seat and access plate -and fuel pump will be right in front of you

Volvo 940 does not starts. Starter works and turns, battery has charge. Changed a fuel pump, it helped for couple weeks. Then same thing happened. Cleaned fuel relay. It also helped for couple days but...


check your pump if you replaced the pre pump in your fuel tank you must check the seal .remove the plastic ring check the base at the entry to your pump is flat .it may be leaking air due to your seal not seated in correctly.

Car cranks ok but won't start.


code p 0440 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) m system--malfunction===causes ---hose connections ---intake leak---EVAP canister purge valve
at this point I would be considering the purge valve as the problem as what you may be getting is a vacuum in the tank from the valve not venting properly and that would not allow the pump to function and eventually would starve the injectors

2001 jimmy sle. I just replaced the fuel pump. Fuel guage works. Pump does not. Checked fuel pump relay- its ok. Trucks turns over but won't start. Whats next?


Test for ground and power at your fuel pump connector. Also, the sending units sometimes come without the pump itself wired in. You have to actually splice in connections sometimes. If you get stuck, dropping the tank again and removing the sending unit to inspect could be your next step.

1991 dodge spirit.. ran great then next day wouldnt start. only starts when you put gas in the carburater.. changed fuel pump still wont start.. please help


usually if thats the only way it will start that means you have no fuel to engine. first off, check the fuse and relay for the fuel pump. next get under car at fuel tank and put your hand on tank while someone turns ignition to on. if the pump works. then you can feel it vibrate. a fuel pump only turns on a few seconds, to pressurize the fuel line. then when running its on all the time. check fuse and relay first before doing anything else. have a good one !!

This is usually how it happens with Electric Fuel pumps. They either work or they don't. When you turn the ignition to on you should hear the pump engage and pressure up. If you don't most likely your pump is faulty. You mentioned that it did this after a freeze. It is possible that you have a frozen fuel line, Supply or return, will also cause this problem. The best you could do is move the vehicle into a garage and warm it up above freezing to allow the lines to thaw. A lot of time we get moisture build up in a tank without even knowing it. Cold fuel is supplied to the motor through the pump but the return line returns warm fuel and in a cold environment this will or can cause condensation to form in the tank and lines. Also bad fuel from a station will cause this issue. It doesn't take much with all the additives they put in fuel today. They sell fuel additive that will remove this moisture if that is the problem. try warming the vehicle up and thawing the lines. If this proves to be the issue you'll need to drop and drain the tank and lines to clear the problem or try a fuel additive to remove the moisture.

There is probably a fuel relay somewhere in that circuit to, that may be faulty. Check your front drivers side inner fender by shock tower for 3 relays. It should be the middle one.
