My fuel pump just went bad in my 2001 Blazer. The mechanic told me that the first symptom, which my Balzer had but I didn't know it was a symptom,was the gas gauge jumping around especially when it was low on gas. Another symptom is a surging feeling. The pump itself is about $600 plus labor. They have to drop the fule tank to replace it.

Can a clogged converter cause the fuel pump to lose power?


No! if a bad converter clogs up, You will not have any power at all. it would be like blocking the exhaust or tail pipe.The pump does not have anything to do with the converter.HERE ARE SOME SYMTOMS OF A BAD COVERTER:pressing on the accelerator does not increase the speed. The engine backfires, and the car jerks while driving down the road. A problem with the catalytic converter often causes an error code in the vehicle's onboard computer, which illuminates the check-engine light. God-Bless!

It could be a bad computer that doesn't fire the fuel injector on that cylinder. Or, the fuel injector is clogged on that cylinder.

The fuel injector should have a telltale click when listening to it operating on that cylinder, and it should also make a noid light blink indicating current is getting to the fuel injector, when the fuel injector harness is connected to a noid light.

Good luck on this repair.

All of your symtoms point to a clogged fuel filter. The filter is located underneath the car below the passenger's side door. It will have fuel lines connected at either end. You will need to depressurize the fuel system by either disconnecting the fuel relay or disconnecting the wiring harness for the fuel pump. The bolt is clamped on the frame so you will need to unbolt the mounting bolts. Then you will rotate the fuel filter our and uscrew from the fuel lines.

check for a bad fuel pressure regulator. symtoms are--the vehicle runs rough, the engine may not start ( usually in the mornings). many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. replacement is only cure.

Not picking up gas when engine is cold, sputtering, bogging out especially when travelling uphill, Is this some sort of a sensor maybe??,the spark plugs are new. thanks


check fuel filter. it is starving for fuel. unless the fuel pump is bad. check filter first, then go from there. symtoms of a bad coolant sensor--poor cold idle, stalling, rich mixture retarded timing, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage.

1996 GMC Sierra starving for gas


this year hs a real problem with the fuel pumps and the fuel pump connector, this makes the pump run slow and you loose fuel pressure. the fix, replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank.

When I push the accelerator it jerks around for a bit then dies out. Could this be symtoms of a bad transmission speed sensor.


i would go for the petrol pump first,check the fuel line pressure ,it should be about 35lbs if low then chck pump and flexible pipes that connect to the metal ones because they can collapse inside themselves but i have no experiance of this type of vehicle so i have no idea if the pump is an exterior one or inside the fuel tank .Well i do live in spain ask me about a seat or a renault and i would know
