You need to drop the fuel tank unplug the fuel lines and wiring harness hope it's not too full of gas ..Did u know the number 1 cause of fuel pump failure is running your car or truck low on fuel all the time here's why fuel pumps are cooled by the gasoline in the tank have you ever spilled gas on your hand it's cold isn't it this is how the pump is cooled so if a car is constantly less than 1/4 tank the pump is not cooling therefore it's getting hot and overtime blam it will fail or fail slowly common problems like hard starting wich now leads to over cranking the starter and then that fails or of course your batt and possibly your alternator so rule of thumb keep atleast 1/2 tank Wala problem solved fuel pump is submersed cool and happy and so is your wallet regards Chris
Almost impossible to siphon gas from todays' cars. Only way I know to do it, is to take off the filler hose from the tank. Then you could get a siphon hose into the tank.
An alternative is to pull the fuel line apart at the fuel filter, and use a jumper wire in place of the fuel pump relay. When done right, the pump will turn on and a stream of gas will come out the line at the filter. The pump relay is under the hood in the power distribution box. As you are unfamiliar with cars, you will need someone to jumper the correct terminals where the relay plugs into. If you get the wrong terminal, you could fry the engine computer. What needs to be jumped is the power feed for the fuel pump on one terminal to the terminal which has the wire going to the fuel pump in the tank. The relay has either 4 or 5 terminals depending on design. An experienced person can figure out the relay terminals to bridge or jump, based on the schematic that is on the side of the relay.
Yes the gray wire goes from the relay to the pump, and the black wire grounds the pump. I should tell you running the tank dry kills the pump. The pump uses liquid gasoline to cool and lube the pump. Running low on gas makes the pump work harder and hotter. Never run an electric pump below 1/4 tank of gas. While you have the pump out you should fix the gauge too if you can.
My first thought is that you have wires shorting out somewhere, probably right above the gas tank. Either way, you're going to have to pull the gas tank off to find it. Usually, when a fuel pump dies, it just doesn't work, and won't normally blow a fuse. Pull the tank down, inspect the wiring, and change the fuel pump if the wires check out okay.
This is a simple service fix. It's a glitch in the computer system. Take it to the dealer and there is some sort of code they can enter to "update" the car's computer.
Mine does it occasionaly, it annoying, but not harmful.
I've heard of some that will act up for a while, then stop, while others, have acted up and them the fuel gauge stays on empty.
Talk to the dealer.
throttle body air intake mix is cracked i hope i said this right
right now my mind is waken up
this will be connected to the air filter and assembly take the whole assembly out and try and start vehicle
if vehicle runs you have a crack in throttle body air intake housing this will need to be replaced
cloged fuel filters there is usually 3 one in the engine compartment one on chassis and one in the gas tank called the sending unit this has a filter on it
the gas tank filter only needs to be replaced every 100 thousand miles
timing might be off
sparks not connected all the way or improperly wired
computer took a surge and now wont run replacement of computer is needed
vacume leak at master cylinder
capasitor ignition coil bad <<< spell check
alternators these days are mostly being remanufactured the only true brand new alternators are the ones that come from dealer
batterys are reman. too sometimes they have a dead cell in them
at one point in my life i had to go back 4 different times with alternator and battery for the same problem
this is a win loose win kind of senerio
from the sound of the vehicle only runs off a jump the alternator and or battery is bad
i hope this helped you in discovery of vehicle problems
