There is a fuel pump fuse AND relay. When you have the key on you should hear pump in tank working.... whizzing sound, if not check the above mentioned, have you tryed to spray carb cleaner in intake, will it run on that ?

Keeps blowing fuel pump fuses. any ideas why?


Hi well im assuming that this is something that has just started , the first thing you need to do is start at the basics, get under the truck and go to the fuel tank. try to access the fuel pump connector (4 wire connector on top of fuel tank) may be able to excess from area between the frame rail and tank on drivers side ,if that tank is a side mount tank. unplug this connector and try to install a fuse .. DONT INSTALL A LAGER FUSE THEN RECOMMENDED OR HARNESS DAMAGE MY AND WILL ACCUR . If the fuse stays intact u most probably have a shorted fuel pump

No fuel to fuel rail


When you say "bad gas" , what are you referring to? Was it dirty or did it have water in it? And how did you discover this?

Sorry to ask silly questions but just trying to get an idea of the background! If it was water you may find that it has now all separated and is on the bottom of the tank- the first place for your pump to pick up from.

You may have a pump that is jammed due to dirt or sediment depending on what was the problem with the fuel. Regardless Im thinking that a fuel tank removal and flush is going to be essential in the near future.

If you're not getting fuel pressure out of pump, check power supply to pump. That way around you know if it is an electrical problem or a pump issue- inside or outside the tank!!

Sorry if im a bit general but limited info from your question. Hope it helps??!!

2002dodge caravan not getting fuel to motor


listen at your fuel tank to see if you can hear the fuel pump running
if it isn't check your fuses as well as your relay if these seem to be ok then it's probably the fuel pump

Why won't my 1997 Saturn SL start?


you have spark at the plugs ..thats something

spray stay you mug
into the throttle body see if the motor will cough

tank needs draining and have fresh fuel
fuel pump has a filter and fuel relay

crack the fuel line connection to the rail to see if there is fuel reaching the rail and correct pressure

if sitting 6 years.. not being run regularly
do a compression test
lifters may be stuck
rings may have lost tension

Have to change the fuel pump, whats the easiest way


Good luck on that - I believe the fuel pump is mounted INSIDE the gas tank in an assembly that includes the float and sock filter. You probably just filled the tank ( my luck goes that way too) and will need to siphon or drain the tank to do the job. This job is pretty involved and you may want to take it to a shop if you can afford to. If the problem is no fuel, you may want to change the fuel filter first - it's mounted against the frame rail, driver side, under the car. Make sure you release the fuel pressure by pressing down the release valve on the fuel rail under the hood, top of motor. The release valve looks like a tire's air valve and will spray gas at you so put a rag over it before pushing.

Fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline


Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

Where is the fuel pump in a 2003 F350 power stroke diesel


in the tank. you also have two fuel filters. one on the frame rail under the driver the other on the top of the motor. if your having fuel problems an havnt changed the one on the frame rail try that first. if you still have a probem its ussualy easier to remove the bed than drop the tank

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1992 cadillac seville? my car wants to start, but no gas is getting to the air breather? make sense.


Unless this problem has been slowly creeping up on you, I'm going to say you need to look at the fuel pump too.

Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line
