If you turn the key to ignition on, the fuel pump motor turns on for two seconds, if you recognize that the pump is working, there will be a clogging inside the fuel pump or at the strainer. if you remove the fuel pump that there is no stain or clogging at the pump assembly, the problem is your fuel pump. replace it

Gas spits back when fueling


It sounds like the vent tube on the gas tank may be either plugged, or partially pinched off. Once you start putting gas into it, and have a gallon or two in, does it improve? If the vent is blocked, the only venting you are getting will be around the fill tube you are putting fuel into. Until you get the problem addressed, the only solution is to fill the tank at a reduced rate. Hope this helps.

2002 SILVEROADO 5.3. I was drivig down the road, started acting like it was running out of gas than stalled. No whrilling fuel pump sound, I checked all relays and they were ok, New fuel pump did not fix,...


The fuel filter wont keep the pump from working but it can restrict the flow of fuel. Just to see where your pump is at smack the tank hard one time. If the pump is malfunctioning it will most likely turn back on.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!

I need to know the step by step instructions to replace the fuel pump on the 1994 safari


there are two gas tank straps on these should be 15mm bolts.
remove the vent tube and fill tube. should be 8mm worm clamps,
once you lower the tank about half way remove the 2 connectors to the fuel pump and all 3 of the plastic fuel lines. to remove the lines there will be tabs on the ends that need to be pushed in for them to release. its not really hard its just uncomfortable on the ground.

once the lines and wires are removed lower tank all the way. fuel pump is held in my a ring that spins or unscrews. you may need to tap it with a pry bar on the metla tabs.

make sur to line up th O-ring and if it comes with new conectors replace them. alot of the connectors go bad.

Hope that helps,
Michael

Im having trouble pumping gas into my 2005 chevy avalanche. sometime it spits gas back at me


Try checking the vent tube. if you look under the truck it will go from the gas tank filler tube to the top of the gas tank.

Gas pump repeatedly shuts off when fueling.


You may have a partial blockage of the air vent. You might try something as simple as using a non-metal long strip that can reach the tank through the vent hole in the fill tube. Be very careful not to use anything that may cause a spark as you may cause a dangerous explosion. If that doesnt solve the problem. you should either remove the tank and clean it or have that done. My guess is that if the tank is that dirty you need to replace the screen and pump in the tank while you are there.
