Question is, does fuel pump relay come in/ go out when ignition switched on? How do you know "no power source to fuel pump", was that because bypassing the relay didn't cause it to run? Or did you check for supply to the pump and find nothing doing?.
Sounds rather like a frozen pump to me... or a blown fuse??

1985 ford pick up 5.0 fuel injected does fuel pump suspose to come on when switched to run position and rotate the dist


The fuel pump should turn on for a couple of seconds just by turning the key to run. It has nothing to do with rotating the distributor, and I don't know what you mean by that?
When the engine computer senses the ignition key has been turned to on, it will send a signal to the fuel pump relay for a couple of seconds, and the relay being energized is what makes the pump turn on. The relay acts like an on-off switch. when its coil side is energized, the relay is "on" and will transmit power-in this case to the fuel pump. That two second run time lets the pump prime the feed line to the engine and put it under high pressure.
I guess you have throttle body fuel injection? The pressure called for that is less than for multi-port injection, that is about the only difference.

Car has been sitting up and will not start now. It seems to not be getting gas and I do not know how to prime a fuel injection system. Any help appreciated.


There is only a few cars fitted with an ancient petrol injection system that needed any priming.

Diesel engines mostly need the injection system priming but petrol injection systems do not.

Lots of cars use a system where the fuel pump runs for a couple of seconds when the ignition is switched on and that is all the time it takes to prime the fuel system. After a couple of seconds the fuel pump switches off and waits to restart when the engine is cranked.

As priming the system takes only a couple of seconds some manufacturers don't bother with the brief priming run of the pump and just have the pump start when cranking.

Could be faulty supply, fuse, pump relay or the pump itself.
If the car is fitted with an immobiliser, perhaps that is the problem.

Most fuel injection systems use a ignition bypass circuit to energize the fuel pump when starting the engine. However, when the engine starts and the ignition key is returned to the "On" position, a Fuel Pump Relay keeps the fuel pump working. The relay may be defective.

Check your fuel tank, fuel pipe and hoses might have a leaky somewhere.. else your injection pump has a leaky internal high presure pump.

No fuel up to injecter pump truck just stalled


Did you check for fuel pressure on the line from the tank while you had the filter off? Do you hear your fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition on? First I would listen for the hum of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the run position (not starting the engine) May have to get a helper and listen at the gas filler neck with the cap off. If you dont hear your fuel pump, check your fuses and relays. If the relay clicks when your helper turns the key on ( put your finger on the relay and ear down close to feel/hear the relay actuate)., and fuse is good, yet you do not hear the pump prime, I would say your fuel pump is shot.

If it is a diesel,check for fuel pressure coming off the direct drive pump hose while cranking the motor.

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.

did you check the fuse for the fuel pump you don`t say.there is also a fuel pump relay in the system.if you bypass the system then the ecm won`t have control for the pump,which controls the 2 second prime at the beginning when key turned on and it won`t shut off the pump in case of an accident when the engine stops.you can bypass it but its not recommended because this.if you do bypass make sure you have a 25amp fuse wired into the power wire and a on/off switch that you must remember to turn on and off every time you drive the car.

There is a fuel pump prime cycle (2 or 3 seconds)when you turn the key to on and once you start the engine the fuel pump power comes though the oil pressure switch.No oil pressure,no power to the pump.maybe your oil pressure switch has become weak?I would use a scan tool and command the fuel pump on when it does shut off,just to make sure the pump can run,as it could be a bad pump too.Also when it does quit,if you turn the key off for 10 seconds, you should get a prime cycle by turning the key to on.Have someone listen at the gas tank for a fuel pump noise,which will be only 2 or 3 seconds,but will do as a pump running check.Next would be to check for power at the back at or near the fuel pump,power and no pump.replace pump.No power to pump,follow power back to the front through oil pressure switch and fuel pump relay etc.You can always add your own power to the pump from a power source the switches off with the key if needed bypassing the existing wiring and oil pressure switch.
