May be the pump again,filter or the line. since you basically bypassed these parts. I would pull the line before the filter, then after the filter then at the rails. hope this helps Tim

1999 Ford Explorer Sport Starting Issue


It sounds like the pump is failing. That or sometimes not getting electricity. To check which it is, you could use a voltmeter or test light at the gas tank's electrical plug in. You need to check for power on the fuel pump wire when the engine is being cranked for starting. Do this when turning the key to on does not cause the pump to turn on for 2 seconds as it should. The fuel pump has power for those 2 seconds when key is turned to on, and again has power when the engine is cranked. You might miss the two second signal, so check for power when car won't start-when pump won't turn on-and with the engine cranking. If you have a signal then and still no pump coming on, then you must have a failing pump.
But if you have NO power to fuel pump wire with engine cranking, then it is a problem elsewhere-probably the pump relay (try a new relay if you haven't already). That relay is signaled by the engine computer when key is turned to on or when engine cranks . so you could do some testing at the relay if needed.

You probably have a bad fuel pump. Get a fuel pressure gauge and check for fuel pressure at the shrader valve. Put the key to the on position. Your fuel pump should run for about 2 seconds. Your pressure should go up to 30-40 psi. If no pressure your pump is bad. Make sure you hear the relay come on, otherwise could be the relay. You should hear it click when you turn the key to the on position.

I have a 1991 L98 Tuned Port Corvette. When I turn the key to the on position the fuel pressure reads 50psi but falls back to zero within 2-3 seconds and the car won't start. I can spray injector cleaner...


It could be a cam sensor. If the sensor isn't sending a signal to the computer then it will not allow the fuel pump to continue running after 2-3 seconds. Since you have spark and fuel pressure upon initial start this could be your problem.

How long should the fuel pump relay stay energized before going off on a 1991 chevy corvett. when i first cut my switch on it only energizes for about 2 secounds then drops out. the car is hard to crank...


it should only stay on for a few seconds,you have an underlying problem.it could be either your fuel pressure regulator or the check valve in the pump itself might be letting the fuel drain back into the tank,im guessing the car only does it after it has been sitting for a little while and after the initial hard start it will keep starting normally,the easiest way to test it is to put a fuel pressure tester on it and start the vehicle or just pressurize the lines by turning the key on and see if the pressure drops,if it does, pressurize the lines again and crimp of the line from the pump wherever it is rubber with a pair of vise grips and see if it drop then..if it doesnt it will need a pump if it does it will need a fuel pressure regulator,im guessing this car has a L98 5.7 ltr TPI engine in it

Fuel pump does not run on my 1990 corvette its been sitting for several months


whack the bottom of the fuel tank with a sturdy broom handle or shovel handle, while someone cranks the engine. if this dosent knock the fuel pump free you will have to drop tank and replace fuel pump.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start. When


Check your fuel pump ,fuel lines,.One of the most overlooked starting causes is fuel delivery. Find the fuel rail to the injectors. Assuming you don't have a fuel pressure gauge, remove the dust cap on the fitting on the fuel rail and press the center pin in the valve to see if there's a good amount of pressure for a very brief second. There will be no continuous pressure unless the engine is running or is being cranked over. Have somebody crank it for you for a second to see if high pressure is present.

If not, first look at the fuel cutoff switch usually located in the inside stowage compartment of the vehicle. See if the reset button clicks when you press it. Next check the fuel pump fuse and relay, and finally the pump itself could be bad.
