Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

1998 Chevrolet Z71

At one time we were having to replace the fuel relay switch at least every two weeks cleaned all inside and that problem slowed down. Now we are having to replace the fuel pump this will be the 4th time within a year and the second within a month. Any suggestion on what could be causing the fuel pump to go bad and could the two issues be related.

The fuel pump will be located in the fuel tank if engine has fuel injection. If your engine has a carburetor the fuel pump will be located on the right hand (passenger) side of the engine block.

For the 1998 s10 theres no fuelpump switch, there is a fuelpump relay. the relay is in the engine compartment inside the fuse/relay box. the relay will be labeled on the inside cover of the fuse/relay box cover. besides the relay the only other problem for a fuelpump not working on these trucks is the fuelpump is bad or the wiring connector to the pump is bad.

Truck runs for two seconds an shut down i changed fuel pump an filter and it still shuts down but it only stay running when i put gas down in the throttle body i had a 1996 chevy 1500 i was wondering can...

No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.

I have a 98 Chevy 2500 4x4 (Z71) with the 7.4L 454. I have replaced the fuel pump 3 times in the past year and a half or so. Any idea why they keep failing?

I would look at a number of possibilities. The first would be to look for kinks or obstructions in the lines, especially at bends. Change the fuel filter. Check the electrical connections and wire harness for corrosion or bare wires. Repair whatever you find and use some die-electric grease on the connections or spray them with Rust Check. Use the green can.Make sure the ground at the tank is making good contact, shiny metal to shiny metal. Clean the inside of the tank and make sure nothing is left inside or falls in during re-installation. Change the rubber connecting line on the joints with steel lines. Sometimes the inside of the rubber line will collapse. Hope this helps.

We just replaced the feul pump two weeks ago, last night it just slowed down and died on me, on the highway.

Replace the fuel pump relay.

The relay may look brand new be it most common problem electrical fuel delivery problem.

Did you replace the in-line fuel filter at the same time?

I have a 98 chevy silverado 1/2 ton 5.7L motor. My truck will only start after I turn the key over and over to allow the fuel pump to run. I sometimes do it 10 times before it actually starts. After its on...

The problem may be that it has 55 psi instead of 60-65. Could be the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump itself. I have read that these engines need 60 psi minimum to start reliably. Also with the engine off, look down the throttle body with a flashlight and see if the intake appears wet inside, indicating leaking central injectors. There is an upgraded injector assembly available with pressure regulator at autoparts stores. Requires 4-5 hours to replace with experienced mechanical skill level. Would definately upgrade if the pressure regulator needs replaced anyway.
