You need to be aware of the most important rule just because its new it does not mean its good . fuel pumps hum they dont click you need to remove it and bench test it its most likely stuck . i always bench test them before i install them . hope this helps .

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?

Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

I have a 2000 chevrolet express van sometimes it will start and run fine now it wont start at all i no its in the fuel system how do i check to see if the fuel pump is bad

Listen for the pump to come on when you turn the key to on. If it doesn't come on, find the relay in the engine compartment and see if the relay clicks when you turn the key on. If the relay doesn't click, replace the relay or try switching it with another one that is the same kind. If the relay is OK, and you can't hear the pump come on, your pump is probably bad.
If you can hear the pump, it might still be bad. You need to get a pressure test to make sure it is making pressure. An easy way to see if you are getting some fuel pressure is to find the fuel filter and loosen the nut on the engine side of the filter. In this way, you are checking both the pump and the filter. With the key on, loosen the connection carefully until gas starts to squirt out. Quickly tighten in back. If you loosen it all that way and get no gas, try loosening the connection on the other side of the filter. If neither side has gas, your pump is bad. If onlt the back side has gas, replace the filter. Any questions, please reply.

How can you tell if the fuel pump or the fuel relay are bad, just changed the filter car ran fine for a day. can't here the pump all the time, it seems to come and go.What do think?

very good chance the fuel pump is going can put your figer on top of the fuel pump relay and have someone turn on the key listen and feel for a click from the relay. if none you will need to use a volt meter and check the fuel pump fuse.if ok replace the fuel pumpor drop the tank and test for voltage to pump. hope this helps.

Having problems with chevy s10 replaced fuel pump

Check the cable that goes from your battery to the fuse box the relay that is clicking is on. Check for lose bolts or corrosion of the contacts or something like that. If the relay is clicking it sounds to me like it is a voltage issue going to the relay.

94 dodge grand caravan no fuel in fuel rail

Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe

Fuel pump relay

The fuel pump relay in located near the air filter on the drive side of the car there's two relays there screwed into the fender. To make sure its the right one have someone turn the ignition on but dont start it. and see if you hear a click or feel a click thats the one you wanna pull the other one is for the AC. I hope this help's ya if your car is running sluggish, I have replaced the Fuel Regulator No fix, Replaced the fuel filter no fix, it turned out it was the fuel pump. Running 53 Psi when the motor is cold, when the motor is hot the fuel pump shuts off and gives 10psi and then the car dies.
