A fuse will blow for 2 reasons . 1) If the device has a Short in the circuit that runs through this fuse. 2) If the device draws more amperage from the power source through the fuse than the fuse will handle. ex. if a fuel pump or starter has a 20 amp fuse and the starter/fuel pump is going bad and draws 30 amps it will blow the fuse. A fuel pump on a 1996 vehicle is located in the fuel tank and is kept cool by the surrounding gas and the gas that flows through it. Overheating a fuel pump is virtually impossible. That being said there is a High probability that replacing the fuel pump and relay will fix this problem. It is quite common for this to occur in the GM vehicle of 1996. When the pump starts to fail, it draws an excessive amount of amperage and would blow the fuse. Hope you find this information useful.

I can hear the fuel pump cut on and then cut off. and off but it seems very noisy. Is that an indication that it is bad? The engine tries to start


If fuel pump is whining excessively loud then yes it is a definite sign it is going out. Don't have enough information to advise you whether or not this will fix your current condition but a noisy fuel pump is a failing fuel pump.

Engine run ok but diesel pump scream from back of car and when driving car at 40 to 50 mpr and put foot down car very sluggish and dont kick down and go


Change the fuel filter first. The pump can get noisy if it is underload from the filter being plugged or from the fuel pump starting to fail. If it is still noisy it would be best to change the pump at some point before it fails.

The fuel pump on my 1988 crown victoria runs constantly when the engine is running and pump is very noisy. When i turn the key on, the pump runs then stopps but runs constantly when engine is running. Why?


The fuel pump is supposed to run constantly when the engine is running. It is pumping fuel to the engine which is in constant need of fuel. It is starting when the ignition is turned on and then shuts down after a few seconds if you do not start the engine. This is exactly what it is supposed to do. You have no problem except for the pump being noisy. On a car that is 22 years old, I would suspect the fuel pump is failing and the noise you hear is it's death nil. Change the fuel filter and if the noise continues be prepared to have the pump replaced. It may fail suddenly or it may become hard to start. If you have never had it replaced just go ahead and do so, to prevent being stranded and a towing fee when it does fail.

After replacing fuel pump car still stalls occasionally when turning or stopping,also pump seems to run most of the time and is noisy


Did your also replace the fuel filter. Clogged fuel filters are one of the major causes of premature fuel pump failures. If you did replace the filter then look at the fuel pressure regulator.
