I have a 1991 Nissan 300ZX and when I turn the key on the fuel pump will not keep pumping please help


When you turn the key to on, not start, the pump should come on for about two seconds and then shut off. It won't come back on until the car is being cranked. Then it should be on, and remain on when the car is running.
If the car won't start, and you suspect a fuel or fuel pump problem, the best way to check it is have the fuel pressure tested. Correct pressure at the injectors is critical for the engine to get enough gas to run proper.
If you don't want the pressure test, and only want to verify pump is working, then break into the fuel line somewhere convenient and see if gas spurts out when you are cranking the engine over. If it does, pump is working. If no gas comes out, line is plugged or pump is not working. To test for power to the pump, a mechanic would check for power at the fuel pump connector while the engine was being cranked.

My 1990 dodge caravan wouldnt start when I returned to it. It sarted to and now it just cranks over. I get spark and I primed the throttle body and got it to fire. I checked for fuel delivery by removing...


The fuel pump rela is located under the hood, driver side, front side of strut tower, rear of headlight, mounted on inner fender well.
However I do suggest jumping the fuel pump to see if pump turns on. Test voltage from ECM if needed. If voltage is to pump, then pump is shot. If not voltage, relay may be bad.
If pump works on jumping it you may have to try and start 5-10 times aka couple minutes. If pressure is still not building and pump is on, then you may want to consider testing the fuel pressure regulator. voltage regulator will handle amount of fuel pressure being delivered to the system. You can test with voltmeter to see if you are getting any voltage to the regulator.

Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.


It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

Changed out 460 engine. Now fuel delivery problem.


Interesting problem. Not sure what the mechanic has tried - but I recommend that you test YOUR thought about heat on the fuel line. Try some aluminum foil wrapped on the line near and after any heat source... If that fixes it, YOU identified the problem . For perminent fix, just get some heat tape and wrap the line near any heat source and the 460 should be happy.
