I would check the fuel pump relay, should be mounted above the fuses in the fuse box. And check the fuse for the pump.

1988 VW FOX no power to fuel pump and fuel pump relay


The problem is most likely the ground that would explain the gauge not working and the pump not working you can run a wire from the metal frame or metal body to the metal sending unit on top of the tank and see if the gauge works first.

I need a wiring schmatic for a 88 vw fox


The ignition switch and relay supply the power. Switch to relay, relay to pump. make a set of jumper wires and run them from battery to pump and see if pump runs . If it does its ok. Next pull fuel injection relay (under dash in fuse box)check it for burnt terminals , resistance and continuity. Its a good idea to get a shop manual for this car. This car is a pleasure to fix . After you pull relay for pump get a voltmeter and test the circuit for B+ (don't forget to put key in ignition and turn to the on position.
If you get B+ here switch is ok most likely relay is the culprit.
Remember there are two fuel pumps for this vehicle
One in the tank (accessable via trunk lift carpet and its in the right corner) the other under the car by the tank. have fun and good luck

96 GMC pickup w 350 engine, starts hard after like 8 hours.


could be your fuel pump relay you should check to see if the pump runes for about 3 sec. when you turn the key to the on position. It should if not the oil switch is turning on the pump after you achieve pressure.
if not check the relay. also with the pressure gauge hooked up check if your pressure drops off fast after you turn off the car. if so you need ether a pressure reg or a fuel pump.
hope this helps

1987 4.3L starting difficulty


First off, I'm a great believer in the simple solution. If jumping the relay works, then replace the relay.

As far as a relationship between fuel pump operation and oil pressure, coincidence of operation.

If the new relay fails you, I'll need some more info:
  • Fuel Injected? If you turn the key on (not to start) do you hear the fuel pump come on for a sec then shut off?
  • Hard to start when hot, cold, doesn't matter
  • When it does start, does it idle ok? erratically? High? Won't stay running? Dies immediately?
  • Does it blow smoke? Black? Blue? White?
  • When driving, does it lack power? Stumble? Stall?
Hope it's the relay
