Fuel pump. Chevy fuel pumps have a tendency to freeze up, banging on the tank frees it up momentarily, but once it freezes the first time the damage is done and the pump needs to be replaced. if you buy a pump and a Haynes manual at your local parts store and DIY you could probably save about 50% of your bill if you'd taken it to a shop. It's not a hard fix.

1998 dakota stopped running. Crank, no start. Fired with starting fluid.


I think banging on the tank and it starting is conclusive enough to take a closer look at the wiring connections and if they seem OK, to take a look in the tank.

2001 chevy malibu wont start after the car runs out of gas and we put more gas


It may take 3-4 times cranking for a few seconds,
with a 5 second pause between to get fuel up to the engine. Also may have sucked up
some dirt/debris into the fuel pump after running it dry. May want to change fuel filter.
you can try to have someone bang on the bottom of the tank while someone else
cranks engine. Sometimes this will free up a stuck fuel pump. good-day!!

Will not start, do not smell any gas


i had a 2000 chevy venture wbe. i had to replace the in-tank electric fuel pump at 107,000 miles. open the fuel door, remove the gas cap and have someone listen closoly. try to start and if you hear a HUMMING sound once the key is turned, then fuel pump is working. if no hum, the fuel pump is bad. upon start-up it kicks in 2-3 seconds to build up fuel pressure...

While warming up my 1999 Chevy Venture, the engine just stopped idling/running and would not start again. Gas Tank has fuel in it (approx. 1/4-1/2 tank) and battery is fully charged. Any ideas where to...


Your right to think about gas but the fuel pumps fail all kinds of crazy ways. The easy way to cheack to see if its the pump is to listen to the tank ( with your ear right against it ) and turn the key on to here the pump come on. If you don't hear anything and the hearing it'self is OK then with someone trying to start the car bang on the tank to shake it and see if the pump will come back on (sometimes they quit altogether and this won't work) The vehical may start right up. If it does the pump is still bad even thogh its running and may not restart as early as the next ry or even quit while running as it already did to you. Rember evven though the gauge says theres gas there may not be be as someone could have stole it and the gauge got bent during the theif. Do'nt look in with a lit match just cause you saw it on TV. Shake the car with a funnell in the fuel cap and listen for gas slushing around. Nothing or slight your out. Listen for the pump this way as it'll really hum in the funnell even full of gas

HELP! HELP! SOMEONE PLEASE ! 2001 chevy blazer fuel problems


I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.
