The fuel tank is doing the right job it wasn't made to pump but to rather contain fuel in a safe and proper strage cell, allowing the fuel to be supplied to the engine in given measured amounts upon demand of the fuel system and its components.....however....if the electric pump is victim.......sit in the van, windows/doors closed...all accesories turned off, seat belt on...QUIET.... turn the key on... can you hear a whirring type noise... if so its the pump working if not you need a fuel pump, or a fuel pump fuse(located in the fuse panel under dash left side red 10 amp) and or the pump relay which I change automatically when I replace the pump as both the pump and the relay both have the same wear factors on them... or if you do hear the pump you may need to test the fuel filter for clogging and or contamination of fuel. Drain it into a clear jar look for dirt water etc, if present replace the filter, and drain/flush the fuel tank...not a recommended DIY'er job. Dangerous and hazardous flammable gasoline products involved.

How to check the fuel pump in a 1996 cavalier


you need a fuel pressure gauge to check fuel pressure, it needs to be 35lbs pressure. if you don`t hear the pump working try hitting the fuel tank while someone is trying to start it. if it starts the pump is no good, however this doesn`t necessarily work all the time. these are the easiest ways. next you will have to use a volt meter and find the power wire and ground wire for the fuel pump at the tank.

Engine turns over but wont start. 1997 gmc jimmy


Fuel Pump or starter. Since you say it's turning over but won't start I'd say it's your fuel pump. You'll probably have to drop your gas tank to fix this problem as your fuel pump is in the tank. You might be able to just loosen the straps and lower your tank a little to access it without removing the whole tank. Check around to local junk yards for this part and you'll probably find it for half the price as new. Make sure you can get your money back if the used pump doesn't work before you pay for it though. Don't forget to run fuel system cleaner (2 bottles to a full tank) once a month.

I turned off the motor and five minutes later I wanted to start it up again. The engine turns but doesn't start. I noticed the fuel pump doesn't kick in before I tried to restart. What can the...


Bad relay. Bad fuel pump. You can go to the fuse/relay panel under the hood and swap relays with another one like the A/C relay and try it.
Then the pump may have gone. One common cause is driving with 1/4 or less tank of fuel. Fuel in the tank is very important now days as it keeps the pump thatis inside the tank cool.
Also if you turn the key and don't hear the pump, wait a few seconds before turning it again. If you turn the key off and on too fast the system does not respond that fast.

My 1989 buick park avenue keeps dying. a friend ran a test on it and it said the fuel pump was the problem, but the fuel pump fuse keeps bowing too... Would this be a short somewhere or the fuel pump...


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.

The fuel pump on my 1995 Firebird Formula quit running. I've even tried feeding 12v directly to the grey wire on the fuel pump relay and it still doesn't run. Can a generic fuel pump be installed...


No, the fuel pump in the tank needs to be replaced. It's not too bad to remove the tank, hopefully you don't have much gas in there though.

Good Luck!

Is there an access panel on the 2004 Nissan Quest, one to help me change my fuel pump?


Unfortunately not. You must remove the fuel tank from the vehicle to replace the fuel pump.

Fuel pump doesn,t always come on when starting up . sometimes it will come on when I put in gas line anti freeze,orr I rock vehicle or tap on fuel tank. Then fuel pump comes on.


Fuel pumps bind up when they are beginning to fail. as the pump motor wears it starts to overheat, causing the armature to get stuck. Dry gas likely has some cooling effect and banging on the tank jars the armature free.
Replace the pump assembly and you should be good to go!
