Double check the pigtail(electrical connection on top of the fuel pump, make sure fuel lines are connected properly, make sure ground strap if any was connected, inspect fuel pump fuse and or relay, replace just to verify, and get back to me if need be!!!

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. You can try to beat on the bottom of the tank and then trying to start it. Sometimes a slight smack in the tank will temporarily get the pump going again.

Does not have one. check fuel pump very common that fuel pump went bad, try a quick trick!! have someone beat on the bottom of the gas tank ,with a rubber hammer as you are trying to start it, see if it starts, sometimes shaking the pump by hitting the bottom of the tank makes the internal components of the pump make the electrical contact and pump runs, if it starts then you know pump is bad.... if that does not work then testing for power and ground at the pump connector will be needed to make sure pump is bad,

I ran my 2000 chrysler voyager se 3.3 v6 for a while yesterday and it ran great now it wont start at all i need some ideas of what to check i personally think it is the fuel pump????


I think you are right. the van ran great the day before and then it wont start the next day, this sounds like the most common problem and that would be the fuelpump. A quick test to try to see if it is the fuelpump would be to have someone inside the van tryying to start it while you lay under it and beat on the bottom of the gas tank with a rubber hammer or something that wont damage the tank and while its being cranked you will beat on the bottom of the tank and see if it starts, if it starts then you will know for sure its the pump, this shakes and vibrates the pump to get going again, now be careful because it may run fine and even restart again but just know that it will die agagin so make sure to replace the pump, hope this works, i use this method at work all the time and it works most of the time unless the pump is to far gone. good day. please let me know what happens thank you.

turn key on and listen for fuel pump in the tank, it should go on for a few seconds then turn off. if you cant hear it try to listen at the fill cap when someone else turns the key on. if you cant hear it , check the safety shutdown relay under hood, it shuts down fuel pump and ignition

Yes it's likely the fuel pump. If that was the first time the filter was changed and it really needed it, it usually causes the pump to fail. It's in the gas tank.

Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

Engine cranks well, half a tank of gas but won't start! Just cranks seems like gas not entering fuel system.


you may be correct, the first thing is to try starting fluid, spray in throttlebody and see if truck starts for a few seconds, if it does then its a fuel problem, mostly a bad fuelpump, start by doing this to see if it a fuel problem,then you can check all the fuses and check for power at pump,alot of times a bad pump will start by banging on bottom of tank while cranking engine if it starts then a bad pump for sure.

Toy starts runs 10 seconds and stops change fuel filter now wont


When you tur the key forward do you hear the fuel pump running? You should hear a low hum for about 20 seconds near the gas tank and then it stops. If you hear this your pump is good. If it keeps running or you can't hear it at all it's bad or the main fuel pump fuse is blown.
