find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad
There is no reset button for an overload situation on the fuel pump. The only reset is for when the vehicle gets into an accident, which activates on impact. So, I don't think this is what you are looking for. I would suggest looking at the fuse panel, which would be located in the engine compartment and it should be labeled. If this is not your problem, then you probably have a problem with the fuel pump itself or the fuel filter is plugged with water. The fuel filters do not like water, so by purging the gas through the bleeder valve you will be putting all that water into the fuel filter. I would suggest removing the fuel filter and purge the fuel/water at that location. You should replace the filter anyway, so I would remove it and see if the pump still works.
I would also suggest putting a couple of bottles of "Heat" or similar products in the tank, because you will not be able to get everything out.
When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.
Thanks for choosing FixYa Michelle and welcome to the site. Anytime the battery is off, the computer resets automatically. Since you are not getting fuel to the engine, you need to make sure that the fuel pump is working. Check your fuel pump fuse and relay. Also, check the reset button if you have one. You should be able to hear the pump kick on when you first turn the key on. You should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't, check the fuse/relay. Check the reset button if you have one. I am not sure if you do or not Michelle. They are usually in the glove box if you do. If you check all them and the pump still doesn't work, change it. Now, you need to check your fuel filter as well. It may be clogged. If not, check your gas lines. Make sure that none of them are damaged. If not, the only thing left to check is your fuel injectors. That is your complete fuel system there. Check the fuel pump, fuel filter, gas lines, and the fuel injectors. If you are not getting gas, it is one of them.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Fuel is pumped out of the tank by the fuel pump. It then goes to the fuel filter. Then, it goes through the gas lines to the injectors and engine. You need to scan your gas lines and make sure they are not damaged or clogged. If the lines are ok, you need to check your injectors. Check your fuel pump fuse/relays and reset button, if equipped. I am guessing the car will not start? Thanks for using FixYa.
You need to make sure your fuel pump is working. You should hear kick on after you turn the key for a second or two. The fuel goes from the pump to the filter, from the filter to the gas lines, from the lines to the engine and injectors. Make sure the filter is not clogged. Make sure none of your lines are pinched. Check for fuel to the injectors. Check your fuel pump fuse/relay and reset button, if equipped.
If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are: - Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel. - Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.
Check the Fuse Relay Box under the Hood on the Drivers side for the Fuel Pump Relay. Replace this Relay and let me know where you are. Please Rate my Response Correctly, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!
