Why won't 96 grand am start ate being wrecked?


You will have to determine if the vehicle has spark as well as fuel pressure. Pull a plug wire off and ground it over the engine. Crank the engine and it should spark. If spark is ok, you will most likely have a fuel supply issue. You will need to hook a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail test port to determine if pressure is available. If no pressure suspect a fuel pump or power/ground supply issue to it

My sentra lost power while driving but cranked back up after 5 mins then cut off again after driving a short distance


Could be a blocked fuel filter . With a gauge check fuel pressure and flow , If flow is low replace fuel filter . if pressure is low replace the pump.

96 dodge ram sputters and dies whem you give it gas


you need to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge to see if its within specs.it should be around 35psi and no lower then about 32psi.your problem sounds like a fuel pressure problem and the pump should be changed as well as the filter, but check to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged as this can also cause a pressure problem.

Why is all my power shuting off when i get up to 25 mph?


You need to run some basic tests, first run a fault code test with the instructions found HERE, next check the fuel pressure under a load, it should be at least 46-52 psi and never drop. The test port is on the top of the engine in the pipe that supplies fuel to the fuel injectors, you need to buy a test gauge, about $20.00

What you've found is the fuel pressure test port, not a gauge. It is the point to which you would attach a gauge to determine cranking fuel pump pressure.

About all I can say at this point is that you probably don't have enough fuel pressure, since it "dripped" out. Proper pressurization would have caused a brief burst or spray until the pressure fell off.

Have you tried a fuel filter?

1992 nissan nx owner manul on how to remove the gas tank


1991-96 Sentra
See Figures 6 and 7

CAUTION Fuel injection systems remain under pressure after the engine has been turned OFF. Properly relieve fuel pressure before disconnecting any fuel lines. Also observe all safety practices outlined earlier in the Fuel System Safety Precautions. Failure to do so may result in fire or personal injury.
  1. Following proper procedures, relieve fuel system residual pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the fuel tank.
  4. Remove the rear seat cushion.
  5. Remove the inspection cover.
  6. Disconnect the fuel gauge and the fuel pump electrical harness connector.
  7. At the fuel filler door, disconnect the fuel filler tube from the body.
  8. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  9. Disconnect the ventilation hoses.
  10. Disconnect the fuel outlet, return and evaporation hoses, at the front of the tank and plug the open fuel lines.

If equipped, remove the tank protector.
  1. Support the tank, remove the fuel tank mounting bolts, and lower the tank from the vehicle.

To install:
If the sending unit or the fuel pump are removed, a new O-ring must be installed.
  1. Install the fuel tank to vehicle and torque the mounting bolts to 20-26 ft. lbs. (27-37 Nm). If removed, install the fuel tank protector.
  2. Connect all the fuel lines and ventilation hoses.
  3. Lower the vehicle and connect the filler tube to the vehicle body.
  4. Connect the fuel gauge and fuel pump electrical connections.
  5. Install the inspection cover and rear seat cushion.
  6. Pour fuel back into fuel tank.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Start engine and check for fuel leaks.
