Question about 1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88

1 Answer

How difficult would it be to replace the fuel pump on an '87 olds delta 88? A friend had offered to help me do it..My mechanic basically said he didn't "want to do it" since it is apparently a nasty job and entails pulling ( and of course, draining) the gas tank. Is it something a couple of reasonably handy "normal" guys could do? BTB.. the car has 138 K miles on it. It's a lil' bit rusty. PS.... I AM aware the F.P. is INSIDE the gas tank.(Some Kind of GENius design, there, to be sure...Good ol' GM...)

1997 delta 88 Fuel pump went out. We replace the fuel pump and now the car will not crank. we took the fuel filter off and there was no gas in the filter. What would cause this issue and how do we fix it.


Check for power to the fuel pump. Is it possible the old pump was fine but had no power to it? If there is no power than check the fuse and the relay. If those check out good let me know and I'll get some more info for you.

Which fuse is for the fuel pump on a 89olds delta 88


The fuel pump fuse is under the glove box inside the car.
Why is it blowing is the $100 question!
Here's a good one from left field- Check the Oil Pressure sending unit before going for the in tank pump.
They share the same power (fuse)
Go figure!

Replaced everything under the sun on our 87 olds delta 88...wont fire on its own but will fire and run fine as long as u shoot it with starter fluid. We replaced starter, fuel pump, filter, plugs, wires,...


Can you here the fuel pump running?no, check fuse,and pump relay. Check pump fuel pressure,at the fuel injector rail,or throttle body. Check for voltage at the top wiring on the fuel nozzel.While cranking look for pulsating voltage.None, test computer,scan system. let me know the outcome.
