Hi

have you checked the fuel pump relay? these can often work loose causing a poor connection thus the pump will not work

Sorry, if this is a silly question, but is a new Fuel Filter installed automatically/come with a new Fuel Pump? Or do you have to buy a new Fuel Filter and attach to the new Fuel Pump before installin


Has the filter ever been changed? Need to know year and model of the truck. Fuel filters can be near the tank or under the hood. Filters are usually separate from the fuel pump.

Fuel pump 05 magnum installed 4 fuel pumps and they all quit working plus int lights head lights blanking


After the second pump it would really make sense you have an electrical issue that is not the pump but loss of power to the pump. Since this car is completely computer controlled you need to have some dealer level testing done.

Installed new fuel pump in 98 chrysler town and contry lxi gas gauge was working perfect now ga gauge is not working and I keep hearing a dinking sound as if door is open but no door is ...


Hi,
Your sending unit on fuel pump is faulty, wired incorrectly or installed improperly. Dinking is probably low fuel warning from instrument cluster. Check wiring from fuel sender with ohms meter to ground. Make sure you have a good connection at the tank coupler/splice. Test from wire there at tank. Should get increased ohms reading as level is dropped. Shake vehicle/tank to make level vary from fuel sloshing around. If the reading fluctuates, may be bad connection to wiring harness. If not, its faulty. Take pump/sender out and get new one on warranty from parts store......Mike

'94 S 10 Blazer V6 Vortec EFI. Fuel pressure good, new fuel injectors installed, fuel pump works ok. Only starts with starter fluid sprayed into air intake. Any Suggestions?


your statement is fuel pump work ok, have you tested for proper fuel pressure. just because the fuel pump works it could have less pressure needed to start the engine. maybe the fuel filter is plugged. start out by replacing the fuel filter, if this doesn't fix it, you need to pressure test the pump. even 10 psi reduction in pressure will allow the engine not to start.

I installed new fuel pump and truck will idel for about 15 second


check to see if the injectors are working, what engine do you have? and what kind of fuel pressure are you getting? check fuses for the injector circuit, if your fuel pump is working and you know your spark is good, the next thing to check would be the injector system
