No voltage to fuel pump or eec relays 1988 e150 van 5.0 died while driving put new starter and solenoid in about two months ago any ideas


I'm not positive the wiring is the same for trucks and vans, but you should have a yellow wire for both relays that go to a fuseable link off the starter solenoid. The key switch powers the EEC relay on, and the computer grounds the fuel pump relay on.
You may want to check the fuseable links and power coming from the key switch.

93 chrysler t&c awd changed fuel pump and filter, van ran fine again for about 2 months now won't start and don't hear the fuel pump. changed the oil pressure sending unit and still won


fuel pick-up in tank is blocked it has a sock over the end as a gross filter to keep out any big junk from getting sucked into the pump and causing damage to it. the sock can get so plugged up that no fuel will flow, causing the pump to run for a short time then with no fuel flow to cool it it trips the safety and shuts off

I have a Toyota Previa AWD, a couple of months ago when I would shut the van off it would not start again at all. I would leave it sit for a couple of hours and it would fire right up. The problem is...


I would first try putting a small amount of starter fluid in the air cleaner when it refuses to start. If it starts then, it is likely low fuel pump pressure which can be caused by a clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, or a poor wiring connection to the pump.

My 96 Mercury villager (Canada) won't start


I had a similar problem with my '95 Villager.

After having it towed to "my" mechanic, here is what he did.

Undid the fuel line to the engine and had me crank the engine --- no fuel came out in spite of the fuel pump whining away.

He then reattached the fuel line and took a rubber mallet and thumped on the bottom of the fuel tank with the mallet as I cranked the engine.

The van started.

It was a fuel pump problem and he suggested not drive the van until the fuel pump was replaced because his "fix" was only temporary and I could be left stranded again.

I took his advice, the fuel pump was replaced and we've been driving the van ever since.

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes


Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.
