Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada

Open Question

My 1998 Bravada will not start. It turns over but

My 1998 Bravada will not start. It turns over but it will not even try to start. Could it be a fuel pump or injector problem. I just filled the gas tank and drove it 1 block. Then it would not even spark or try to start. How do I know if it is a fuel pump or injectors or electrical?

SOURCE: my 91 bravada was rear ended and now wont start

This impact probably damaged the pump as well. I would try to listen if the fuel pump cycles on when you turn the key to the "ON" or "Run" position if it does not than I would have it replaced.

your fuel pump is going bad if you have to tap the tank with a hammer to get it to work again

SOURCE: fuel problem

Check your fuel pressure at the Shredder valve, you should have 60PSI to 65PSI. If you have less then that or more then that your going to have problems with your fuel injection system. The other thing to is to check your fuel pressure regulator. Hook up the fuel pressure gauge and turn the ignition switch to the run position to activate the fuel pump. Once the pump stops pressurizing the fuel line wait and see if your losing the fuel pressure excessively. If you are then your may have a bad regulator and it's leaking internally. The other thing to is may be a bad fuel pump, The good news is the fuel pump in the sending unit in your bravada can be replaced rather then the whole unit. If it is the fuel pump, Buy a heavy duty pump to install to your sending unit. Don't have them sell you the whole unit, pump alone is around average $60.00 other then the whole unit for $230.00. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

You need to relieve the fuel pressure, Gain access to the fuel rail, should be 4 or 5 bolts holding the fuel rail on... once you accessed and removed the fasteners, carefully pull up on the railon aboth sides.. a little wd may help release the injector seals, and you definitely wanna replace the lower o-rings... be careful liining the injectors up when u install the rail

1998 oldsmobile bravada no start battery light on

The Battery light will be on since the engine is not running. The Light goes out when the Alternator is turning to produce the power required to run the electrical components for the vehicle.
I would start with making sure you have a Good Ground for the Vehicle. It sounds like you have either a Fuel Delivery Issue or Ignition System Issue.
Fire = Oxygen, Fuel, Spark. Take away any of these 3 and it will not run.

I have a 98 bravada, it will start and run for about 3 seconds then die

Check for correct fuel pressure. Connect pressure guage to schrader valve on fuel rail. Turn key to ON position without starting engine. Fuel pressure should be between 55 and 61 PSI. If it is too low, replace fuel pump in tank and fuel filter.

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather

Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

Will not start, it cranks It has new battery everything has been checked that we can think of

Check coil module and fuel pressure for bad fuel pump.You can spray starting fluid in the intake and crank the engine.If it starts for a couple seconds your module is OK and you have a fuel problem.
