No as the pump regulates the gas pressure to your electronic fuel injectors. check you fuel filter and check your ignition (pull a plug and make sure you are getting spark.

Its your fuel pump.I had the same plomblem not too long ago.I was spraying either in to start it.I have a 97 chevy truck witch requires 65 psi to start and 55 to run properly.You need to find out much psi you need to start it.You can probaly look in your manual or just make a few calls.My truck had 55 psi and it ran fine i just had to get it running first.Good luck.I wonder if that fuel pressure regulator was a waste of time like it was for me.

Sounds like dirty gas and the fuel filter is clogged...try changing the fuel filter...some are under the car, but most are mounted against the firewall in the engine compartment.

The question is how much pressure is actually getting to the fuel rail and engine. Ideally you should test the pressure at the rail to see how much pressure you're actually getting. If it's fuel injected it should be around 50 - 60 lbs, carbuerated should be much lower. Depending on the outcome, possibilities, fuel pump, strainer ( located in the tank), filter or maybe a plug in the fuel lines or problem with injectors. Good luck. If this helps, please rate this. Thanks

Better have the fuel pressure checked for starters. Even though the pump comes on, your fuel pressure might be too low. Lots of GM vehicles are finicky about proper fuel pressure, especially at start up. It could be a weak pump or failed fuel pressure regulator-a pressure test will sort it all out.

'92 chevy lumina van running rough after fuel pump replacement


mass airflow sensors don't have a vacuum line, you sure you don't mean the EGR valve? if it was the regulator i doubt it would run good or make much of a difference unplugging the vacuum line, take a reading of the fuel pressure, if it starts to drop while the van is running you have a bad regulator.

signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start usually in the mornings. many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. you could have residue in fuel tank and need to change fuel filter again. have a very good day !!

When you turn on the ignition to start vehicle can you hear a buzzing sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. That sound is the fuel pump pressurizing the fuel system. If you do not hear that noise then the pump is not working. Check fuel pump connection for power, if no power check fuse, relay and ground

Van cranks but wont start y


sounds like a fuel related problem, possibly a fuel pmp, take a little starting fluid and spray it into the air intake and try to start it, if it fires up for a couple seconds then it is the fuel system...if it doesnt start that you have an electrical problem. Once you narrow it down into one of those two catragories, you will know where to look....the most common problem in fuel system is the fuel pump, others include, the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, and the injectors, the most common eletrical issues are the plugs, wires, coil, distributor, and starter. Another good way to check a fuel pump is to have it nice and quite and to the key from off the the start position, not turn the van over, but just to start, you should hear a little humming noise from the rear of the vehical which is the pump kicking on, if you can acheive the quiet you need for this you can have someone turn the key back and forth while you listen at the filler tube or even crawl under to the tank.

best of luck, we are here if you need anything else.

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.

1990 chev. lumina apv van- fuel injection


I need more info. However, if your fuel pump is not coming on, check the wiring first. Also some vehicles have a fuse under the hood for the fuel pump, usually it is a little 20 amp fuse along with the one in the vehicle. There is a relay for the pump too that might need to be checked. Where did the fire spread? Did any wires start to melt? Check the pressure regulator, it is just a diaphram inside of it, if the fire heated it up enough, it might have caused the diaphram to bust inside. Did the fire spread to the injectors? If you can give me some more detail I'm sure we can find the cheapest solution for you. Hope what I have covered helps you. I am looking forward to helping you fix your problem.
