Question about 1997 Chevrolet C/K 3500

1997 G30 van will not start

My 1997 G30 van will not start. It was running fine and just stopped. it is not getting gas. I took the fuel filter out and blew air through it and it seems open. After I blew air through it and put it back on and the filter is not filling up with gas. I checked the fuel fuse and it is ok. Not sure if it could be the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay. Is there a way to tell if the relay is good, if there is a problem with the fuel pump. The fuel pump looks like it will be hard to get to. thanks

I've swapped the fuel pump relay with another similar relay. It sounds like the pump is bad, but I would check the actual fuel pressure.

    I forgot to include about the fuel pump location, it's in the gas tank, it's not too hard to remove the tank to get to it. There 2 straps holding the tank in and the filler hose and overflow hose to disconnect . There are 3 lines that connect to the pump and 1 connector that will need to be disconnected, also there is a valve with a hose connected to it that needs disconnected, becareful with that hose, the fitting can break very easy. There is a fitting on the fuel rail, if you aren't getting any gas there, and you can't hear the pump buzzing for a couple seconds when you turn the key on, I'd say the pump is bad.

Is your engine an automatic? If yes - The engine diagnostic should pin point the problem. Which could either be the air flow sensor, idle sensor or the throttle sensor needs replacing.

1990 Asrto van blew aECM fuse I replaced the fuse van started but has no power and will not stay running unless gas is pushed


I would suspect the fuel pump is defective. It is located inside the gas tank, the tank must be removed from the truck to replace the pump.

Check fuel pump pressure and fuel pump regulator. It sounds like you are not getting fuel into the system and if you are you are not getting enough fuel into the system

If vehicle was left outside or in an unheated garage, there is a strong possibility that condensation has contaminated your fuel. Easiest way to check is to remove fuel filter and pour contents into a glass jar. If you see two different layers of liquid in the jar, the bottom part is water. Replace with new filter and drop the tank. Remove sending unit. pour contents into a large container and clean out inside with clean dry rags. Remember, fuel is dangerous to work with and fumes travel pretty far on the ground. So, no open flames electrical stuff, cigarettes etc for a good perimeter around work area. Generally, you can re-use top 3/4 of fuel you removed by syphon. Don't use remainder in your vehicle. Part can be used for lawnmower etc as long as you only take the part above the water line.
