    Jeep idles fine, but while accelerating it seems to be struggling. When you press on gas pedal, the injectors make a whining sound which is abnormal. I thought maybe I had a valve bad in the motor, but I am believing this problem may be in the fuel system. Anyone please help.

With all of your accessories turned off. Turn your ignition on. You should hear your fuel pump come on. If not, check your fuse, and fuel pump relay. The only other way is to put a pressure gauge on your test port or in the line.

Failing check valve in fuel pump should a inline be put in instead of new fuel pump


If the fuel pump check valve is failing on a vehicle that old, you should likely replace the fuel pump, filter, and pressure regulator just as a matter of maintenance. Don't waste time with band-aid fixes.

Tank is going into vacuum w/ cap on. Either the cap is bad or the fuel tank vent valve is bad. Have you tried changing the fuel filter?

We have a 98 Malibu that turns over but won't start.I was told it might be the fuel pump.If I use a diagnostic meter,will a code show for a bad fuel pump?


A bad fuel pump will not necessarily show a code. If you have a throttle body try spraying a little bit of starter fluid into it. Then try to start the car. If you have it will be under under the air cleaner cover and kind of looks like a conventional carbureator. If it starts with starter fluid and then dies you have a bad fuel pump, or clogged fuel filter. The fuel pump will be in the fuel tank. Im not sure where your fuel filter would be.

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?


Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

My 1991 jeep wrangler fuel pump is not turning on? I don't know what is wrong.


If you are positive that your fuel pump is not working, then it is time to replace it.

You can find the fuel pump either inside the engine compartment or inside the gas tank, depending on the engine that you have in your wrangler.

Since it is likely that you have the inline 6 cylinder 4.0, the pump is most likely inside the tank.

Go ahead and pull it if you are sure that is the problem and take it to be tested by your local auto parts store.

My daughter car :Nissian Sentra 2002. GXE 14.8 troubling starting


The pump does have a filter on it but you should also have an inline fuel filter somewhere underneath your car, Check the pump when you turn the ignition key on the pump should run for a second or two then shut off if you can hear it , it is working. It is rare for a vechicle not to have an inline fuel filter but there are some models that don't have one. The filters on the pumps usually don't stop up that often,it's pretty rare.I would try to replace the inline filter call and ask your local part store if they have one for it and you will know for sure. And usually if the crank sensor is bad it won't crank at all.

Jeep will crank but not turn over without gas and rough idleing


Have your injectors, injector pump, fuel pump and filter checked. if you have a new motor, definitely check the fuel filter. Also, you could have a relay or sensor, have a tech put a diagnostic machine on it to check your electrical system.
