    I have a problem with the gas line staying primed. I have to turn the truck on and off for a little more than a minute before it will start. Do I need to replace the pump or is there something else?

    I have a 97 chevy van i also changed the fuel pump and also i hear a little noise . Ichanged the fuel pump 3 times withe the same results it works fine for 3-4 months and then it wont start again. today I tried to start the van and it didnt i would press the accelerator all the way to the floor and it started but there is a strong odor of gas. could it be something else besides the pump?

    I have a 97 chev k1500 and for a while now in overdrive it has been sputering at low rpm when I give it a little gas but if I drop it into 3rd gear it seems to run fine I went to start it the other day and it wouldnt start and couldnt hear the pump winning as usual... does it sound like the fuel pump to you and can i fix it myself without any special tools...

Good Day,

Generally not hearing the fuel pump when turning the key is caused by one of two things.

1.) Bad fuel pump (probably what you didn't want to hear)
2.) Pump is not getting power

Check all your fuses and relays, I'm pretty sure on your 97 you have 2 fuse panels, one in the truck and one under the hood. Also if you are handy with a meter check the wiring of the pump wih the meter from under the truck when the key is on, if you are getting 12volts or so on the pump directly then it's a bad pump. If after checking all fuses and none are blown it's gotta be the pump itself.

I wish you the best of luck and hope this helps

Turns over but wont start


you need to find out if your missing spark at plugs or fuel pressure,you could hear the pump but that doesn't tell you if you have 5psi or 55psi,
you will need a fuel preesure gauge and check that on the fuel rail redd valve if you end up having spark

97 chevy 4.3 liter no spark no fuel pump running.


4.3 and 2.8 motors have a ceramic module in the distributor. if you have alot of miles on the truck, and there is no spark, that module is usually the culprit. easy to replace with a nut driver and some dielectric grease. mod is located in the distributor when you take the cap off look straight dowm and its right there.
also check eec relay and fuse. that will also cause the prob.

Maybe a problem with the theft deterrant system. My Tahoe had a similar intermittant problem and the dealer said there was a fault in the theft system and it would shut off the fuel pump.
