Question about 1992 Chevrolet Astro Extended

1 Answer

I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter on the 1992 Van. I have very little pressure at the injectors and they will not open and spray the fuel. What can the problem be? I can hear the pump run in the tank when the key is turned on but no gas get to the injectors until it is cranked for a few seconds.

This van is TBI right? then its only 14psi of fuel pressure. to check fuel presssure a adapter is needed at the filter. I would verify fuel pressure first.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

If you have replaced all the items listed correctly, the next item will be to check the fuel pressure regulator and injectors. if no injectors fires, even if you have fuel pressure, then the fuel will not go inside the cylinder. You're bypassing all of that when you spray the starting fluid. To check injectors, you need to listen to them while attempting to start the engine. I use an 8 inch 3/8 drive extension and place it on the body of the injector, and then put my ear to the other end of it. the injector makes a ticking noise when it fires. this noise will travel through the metal extension into your ear easily.

Im assuming the fuel pump is working and inertia switch, fuel filter, and fuel pump relay are good, check the ignition switch, if its worn/broke and not making good enough contact.

Went to a store came back out would not start but strong battery,im tinking fuel pump dont know alot about car only had it a week


stand outside your van,reach in the window and turn your key over,but not to the start position. you should hear a whirring sound from the rear of the van and it should last about 2-3 sec. this will be your fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it,then you have a bad fuel pump. Dodge Caravans from 96-01 are VERY bad about eating fuel pumps. if the pump is fine,have someone try to start it while you look under hood and see if injectors are spraying fuel. if the pump is good,and you have no spray from the injector,then you have a clogged fuel filter which will need replaced.

loosing fuel pressure, have you replace fuel pressure regulator, if the regulator is bad, it will have not enough pressure in between the injectors and the regulator. the fuel regulator maintain a proper pressure so the injectors will spray the correct amount of fuel every time the computer tells its to. weak pressure will cause injectors not to spray correct amount of fuel into the intake although will cause your engine to starve for fuel just like you have explained. the parts cost around 135 bucks and easy to replace.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l dies on highway.


Its normal for the pump to run for three seconds then shut off if the car engine is off. . This indicates that the fuel pump turned on and the pressure did reach specifications. If the pump did not reach pressure the pump would continue to run, You need to check for proper pressure with a gauge. If tthe pressure is ok then you have another issue like an ignition module or crank sensor if applicable. You may have to drive the car with the fuel gauge hooked up to see if you still have pressure when it dies.. I know you said you replaced the pump already but do you have the same issues as before you replaced it. This would indicate which direction you need to go now. If the same then its prabably not the pump.

Cannot get 1987 chevy van 20 to keep running... stalls out


Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.
