Did you remember to hook up your fuel pump?
It will take several attempts for it to start because the fuel lines are empty and have to be purged by the pump first.

New fuel pump won't prime. No fuel from gas tank to engie. Lines are clear.


The pump works without priming anything. If the tank is vented, and you have fuel in the tank, and the pump is installed correctly, it should pump fuel out.
Are you sure the pump is getting power and ground ?

Removed gas tank guard now won't start


Overtime, Jeep Grand Cherokee fuel tanks develop rust and accumulate sediment. This is especially true if the tank sits empty for a period of time. Rust and sediment can break loose and cause clogged filters. When the filter is clogged, the engine does not receive the amount of fuel required to operate. The fuel tank can be cleaned out; however, replacing the tank is easier.
  • 1 Apply the parking brake.

  • 2 Remove the gas cap.
  • 3 Remove the fuel pump relay from the power distribution center under the hood. Look at the underside of the power distribution cover, and locate the fuel pump relay.

  • 4 Attempt to start the engine, cranking the engine for several seconds.
  • 5 Turn the ignition to "Off." Install the fuel pump relay.
  • 6 Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
  • 7 Lift the fuel tank into position, using the jack.

    8 Attach the fuel filler hose and vapor return hose to the fuel tank.Tighten the clamps with a Phillips screwdriver.

  • 9 Pivot the fuel tank retaining straps into position. Tighten the fuel tank retaining strap nuts with a socket and ratchet. Lower the jack.

  • 10 Connect the fuel pump electrical connector, the fuel filter line and the fuel return line. Push the fuel line retainer into the chassis.
  • 11 Raise the heat shield. Install the mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts with a socket and ratchet.
  • 12 Install the tow hooks or trailer hitch, if equipped.
  • 13 Lift the skid plate into position with the jack. Tighten the skid plate mounting bolts with a socket and ratchet.
  • 14 Attach the electrical service connector to the bumper with a socket and ratchet.
  • 15 Raise the jack and remove the jack stands. Slowly, lower the vehicle.
  • 16 Pour the fuel into the gas tank. Connect the negative battery cable.
  • Buy Custom car Parts.

    2001 chevy malibu. I filled up with gas this morning and didn't get very far and it died. Won't start back up. What could it be?


    Hello! I'm not so certain that the filling of the tank and the fact that the engine died and won't start are related...Lets get a little background...Has the car been running poorly; Or was everything in tip top shape, and after filling the tank it quit? Is the Check Engine Light on now? Any idea how many gallons you pumped in; And the octane you used? And lastly, was it an often used gas station?

    Jeep won;t start..new fuel pump installed


    try the fuel filter and make sure you have proper oil pressure!! Remeber if you have tried craking to many bad times then the plugs are going to be fouled out!! Means that they are going to be drowned with gas and need replacing!! Also make sure your fuel pump is coming on!! You should hear a hissin or a hummin noise back from the fuel tank!
