Take it to a mechanic, tell him to check the problem and if there is only 1 fuel pump install another one.

Idle fine, then run ok for few minutes, then cant go over 15 mph,new filter, new supply pump, suspect turbo or injector pump

Hi , you probably have water that's went from the tank to the pump. DIESEL PUMP. The worst thing that you can do is let your fuel go way down low and some water is taken in with fuel + water . The fuel pump is a mechanical pump with moving parts and you can't let water in . Certain pumps ,diesel pumps have a latch valve and you don't want water to sit for any length of time in the surrounding wall of the valve as it will rust this may cause the valve to stick then your car may go to rev excessive sometimes high revs , i mean screaming rev's. Please get the pump checked.

I cant hardly put gas in the tank,it kicks off around 2 gal,then if i barely sqeeze the pump handle i can get some more in but not much more than 5 gal

If you are trying to refuel your vehicle with the engine running, this is the problem. The ignition switch MUST be turned off to allow the fuel tank vent solenoid to open and allow air to escape from the tank when you are refueling. This can also cause fault codes to be recorded in your computer and cause your Check Engine light to come on.

If you are turning the ignition switch off, then you could have a sticking vent solenoid or possibly a damaged/resricted fuel filler neck.

Fuel replacement would if be in the tank or not?

Fuel replacement???...Or are we talking about the fuel filter and/or fuel pump? The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank and the fuel filter is located on the frame rail just under the driver's seat.

The fuel pump and membrane etc. are shot. Also the fuel tank shows corrosion of rust and gunk. My mechanic says it would be cheaper to clean out the old tank rather than replace it with one i found at a...

If you have a rusty old tank, it will always be a rusty old tank. If you can find a nice tank at the junk yard great, but I would always replace the used pump and strainer no matter what. It is not an impossible job if you have the proper tools. The problem you may run into is if the fuel lines are rusted they are impossible to disconnect not to metion if the fuel tank straps are rusted where they bolt on you may not be able to get the bolts out. This vehicle is no spring chicken and you could run into a real mess. I personally hate these jobs. Do not apply heat or an open flame anywhere near the lines or tank as it can cause an explosion or an uncontrollable fire.

I have an 86 monte carlo 4.3 efi,,,the car didnt want to start wich i believed were fuel problems.i replaced fuel filter and checked fuel lines to see if clooged.checked out ok so i talked to a mechanic...

The fuel pump is bad, the electric motor was stuck in a bad position & when you hit the bottom of the tank it made the rotor turn to good spot which allowed you to drive. But make no mistake, the fuel pump is bad!

Fuel pump not working the person has run it out of gas 2 times but this time engine does not Turn on

You should replace the fuel filter - it is probably clogged with debris from the bottom of the gas tank. If this does not fix the problem, the fuel pump may be clogged or burnt up. Either way, it will need to be removed from the tank. If you can hear a hum coming from the fuel tank for a few seconds when you first turn the key on, then the pump is most likely ok. You can clean the filter on the inlet and reinstall the pump. If not, you will have to replace the pump. On second thought, once you get the fuel pump out, you may just want to replace it and chalk it up to preventive maintenance. Also, have a serious talk with someone about putting gas in the tank when it gets low.

Cant get the fuel from the tank to the fuel pump

On your Festiva, if you have an automatic transmission the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. If you have a manual transmission, the fuel pump in to the left of the carburetor on the top back side of the engine (and is a manual pump operated off of the engine cam). Depending upon which you have, you will want to obtain the correct one. You can disconnect the fuel line from the place it enters the carb or injector system and also at the tank and blow through it to make sure there are no obstructions. I'm sure you have checked that the fuel filters are not clogged? The auto tranny model has 2 filters (one in the tank and one under the hood), while the manual tranny model has just one under the hood. Remove it and blow through it too to make sure its clear. Through the process of elimination you can either find the blockage or simply replace the appropriate fuel pump. The correct fuel pressure should be 33.6 psi on the Festiva, so if you get it pumping a little, you should make sure that the pressure is adequate, because if its not, you will still need to replace the fuel pump anyways.

Fuel pump fuse in wiring location

the fuel pump fuse is in one of the fuse boxes. there are 2 one in the car and the other under the hood.
when the key is turned to ignition,you should hear the pump turn on in the tank for a couple seconds.
with the key in the ignition setting,have someone bang on the fuel tank with a 2 by 4 . if the pump is bad,it may start up and run.

Did an oil change, filled gas tank, put in GUMOUT, 1999 Jeep GC

If you put a fuel cleaner additive in the tank I would change the fuel filter. I believe on this model it is located in the frame just ahead of the fuel tank on the drivers side. Any foreign material cut loose from inside the tank from the cleaner often clogs the filter.
