1996 dodge caravan wont start after fuel pump change


you need to check the fuel pressure to make sure it is holding the proper pressure. If not, you have a bad regulator. If so then check the injectors to make sure they are all spraying

Installed new fuel pump. pump turns on with key but does not send fuel


Try changing the fuel filter, then VERIFY that there is fuel pressure or not, at the fuel rails. If you have pressure and engine still wont start, problem is elsewhere. Perhaps the system has air trapped in it still. Did you add at least 5 GALLONS of gas to the tank? Some tank baffles wont let one or two gallons reach the pump, unless the vehicle is moving.

If you do NOT have pressure at the rails, check the following:
Are the hoses from the tank connected correctly to the body lines?
Did you install the hose and clamps(if required) from the pump to the same line the old pump was connected to? You can disconnect the inlet side of the fuel filter, and then turn the key on for split second. If the pump is pumping fuel and connected inside the tank correctly it will spray a bit. You can put an empty water bottle over the end of the line, just tape or wire it on so it wont shoot off.
Was there a cap or plug left on the intake(bottom) of pump?

It could also be the new pump. I know you dont want to hear some of these things, but it happens.
You would not be the first person to get and install a bad pump. Fuel pumps, Ignition parts, and electrical parts, and most brake parts should be obtained at a dealership. Yes they cost more but, they work!

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....


It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.

Dodge caravan turns over wont start all lights work


possible bad fuel pump. check fuel pump relay under hood. drivers side fuse panel. swap fuel pump relay with another identical relay to rule out possible bad relay. listen for whining sound back by fuel tank. the fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Another option....you can also check the pressure in the fuel rail, but be careful not to squirt gas in your eyes or face.
