Check cranking fuel pump pressure. If no (or very low) reading, you might try replacing the fuel filter. Try running the cranking fuel pump pressure check again. If the readings are unchanged from the initial test, then you may, in fact, have a failed fuel pump.

Possible fuel pump problem. Try banging on the gas tank with a heavy object ( hammer ) while turning the key over. If it starts/tries to start, suspect a fuel pump failure

Tahoe wont start, cranks tries to fire


Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Has the fuel filter ever been changed? You can try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank with a blunt object ( hammer works ) while some one cranks the engine. If it starts suspect a bad fuel pump

Wont start cold if put hot water over pump will start whats problem


If you mean hot water over fuel pump, I would suspect fuel icing. Try adding can of "HEAT" to fuel (removes water from fuel)

My car will start but wont stay on


I suspect that your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

Car wants to start but wont, plenty of battery but wont crank over, is it the fuel pump do you think?


If it wont crank then the battery is bad. If you mean it turns over but wont start than that is a fuel or spark issue. Dur to the year I would suspect ignition parts like coil packs and plugs.

Good luck.

Best suggestion would be to put a fuel pressure gauge on and and see what the fuel pressure reads when cycling the key off and on pressure should be 37 to 43 any less then this suspect the fuel pump or an electrical connection to pump. When it acts up and you can not hear the pump running try tapping on the fuel tank.If vehicle starts after that suspect the fuel pump.

HAVE YOU HOOKED UP A FUEL PRESSURE GAGE? I STRONGLY SUSPECT YOUR ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IS DEFECTIVE.

Car just turns over wont start


When you turn on the key, the fuel pump runs for one second to bring the pressure in the fuel rail up to spec. If it does not do this, the car won't start. Have the fuel rail pressure tested. It should be between 35 and 40 PSI. Suspect the fuel pump relay. There could also be ignition problems, but make sure this pressure is ok first.

The car wont stay running when in the run possion


OK lets start with this..

I am guessing that when you say possion you are meaning you gear selector and when you put it in say drive.

If that is the case.....

Your problem is most likely the fuel pump relay or fuel pump itself.
Start with checking, or have it checked, the fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

If the pressure is low then a fuel pump can be suspect. There are then other test which have to be performed to see where the exact problem is.
