SOURCE: fuel pump

Fuel Pump on this Vehicle is on the inside of the gas tank it is a not so hard job to do if you have done quite a bit of mechanical work, but if not you best get someone who does have the experience since we are talking with dealing directly with the tank that even when empty it can explode with a spark from a tool striking ant metal.

But if You are that person that knows how to tinker with automobiles I Strongly suggest to go to your local auto parts store and get the book in order to follow the instructions safely, trust me I have done 2 chevy astros and a thunderbird. Good Luck.

You have a fuel gauge sending unit problem, the gauge is not the problem, the sending unit is in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank to replace it.

Ran fine, shut off. Came back out, turned over but not start. Had jump started twice but put in gear and died. Question: I know low on gas, can this effect anything?


Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.

I need help can't keeps 98 gmc safari started all I did was run out of gas put more gas in and changed fuel filter still won't stay on ran great before what could it be


Could be the fuel pump as they use the fuel as a lubricant. When run dry this can cause wear to the impeller of the pump.
I would check the fuel pressure in the fuel rail.

The fuel pump doesn't seem to be working


You may have fried it.
If it is getting power and ground, and it is not running, it may have overheated when you ran the tank empty. The pump uses liquid gas to keep it cool and lubricated.

Gas gague not working in 93 gmc sierra


The fuel level gage sending unit is defective, very common problem. The sending unit comes with a new fuel pump and is referred to as a module, also make darn sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank, solder and shrink tube the new connector on, DO NOT USE CRIMP CONNECTORS.

My 91 cutless ran out of gas one day and has never ran right since. Replaced ever sensor on the car, fuel pump every thing. Runs good for 2 or 3 days and then it won't stay started. Went out few mouths...


You may have loaded a fuel line or connector up with contaminants. What else is happening during the second or 3rd day of running? Is it running low on fuel? Try to make a list of your gauge set! It only makes sense.
