My grandson 12 years old saved and bought a 84 c10 truck.it had a hole in gastank,we fixed it and now it will not stay running.we replaced the fuel pump and new gas lines.could it be the float in the tank...


TAKE THE FUEL LINE OFF THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE PUMP WORK FROM THIS POINT BACK TO THE TANK.PRIME THE LINE FROM THE PUMP TO THE TANK WITH FUEL.RECONNECT FUEL LINE BACK TO THE PUMP FROM TANK. HOLD BACK PRESSURE WITH YOUR THUMB OVER THE PUMP ENGINE SIDE .TURN THE PUMP ON .IF IT DOES NOT PRESSURE UP THE LINE IS CLOGED FROM THIS POINT TO THE TANK.THE FLOAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FLOW OF FUEL FROM THE TANK! AFTER YOU GET FUEL TO THE PUMP FROM THE TANK REPEAT THE PROCESS TO THE CARBURATOR SIMPLE PROCESS OF ELIMANATION! FUEL IN TANK>PUMP>CARBURATOR>ENGINE > MOTER RUNS

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns


Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)

Where is my fuel pump at? on a 1995 chevy camero 3.4 yes ran the car out of gas put so in wont start now what should i do first


Your fuel pump is in the tank. Turn on the ignition, and listen if you can hear the pump run in the tank. It will only run a few seconds if the engine is not running. You can repeat this several times to prime the fuel injection.

My son ran my truck out of gas. Its a 1988 F250


first, is this a diesel? if it is there is a line or oring loose allowing it to **** air--diesels dont like leaks like that and there is a whole procedure for voiding the air from the lines on diesels. next could be the in tank pump and also does it have duel tanks? does the duel tank switch work? running out of fuel with in tank pumps can burn up the pump (the fuel itself provides lubrication and cooling for the pump, gas or diesel) and of course check the filter, running out and refilling could have disturbed trash in the tank

HELP! HELP! SOMEONE PLEASE ! 2001 chevy blazer fuel problems


I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

My 1997 F250 has duel gas tanks. After a few days of being parked, I went to start it and it would not start. I switched to the rear tank and it started. I have a Haynes repair manual covering the 1997...


I would start by checking you switch for the tanks to make sure it is working right and if the front tanks fuel pump does not work after you check the switch I would get a 12 volt electrical test light and see if your getting power to the front fuel pump if your getting power to it I would say you have a bad pump . But some times the pump will run but the diaphragm gets weak in them.
