    Is your Astro fuel injected? It matters.

    If it's injected, you have an electric fuel pump located in the gas tank.

    If it's carb'ed, you have a mechanical fuel pump located on the engine.

    As you can imagine, the procedures are somewhat different.

Replace the fuel pump.If you'r Astro is a 97 it has the ele fuel pump in the tank.It's not as hard as it sounds.I have basic tool's,and it took about 1 hr to complete.I did the job in my driveway on the ground with jack stands.The only special tool you will need is a line removel tool.About 7$ at any auto parts house.


They are trash.If you get lucky and get a good one it might last 6 months.I replaced 4 of them in 1 year.You can buy a Carter for the same $ or less.If you can afford the $ get the DELFIEY.Dont forget to replace the fuel filter.Hope this helps.

2000 astro van died while driving and will not start back. fuel pump is coming on but dont know how much pressure. has new battery also

Check your inline fuel filter to see if it is clogged up. Replacing this filter may allow sufficent fuel to flow to start the engine.

When you replaced the fuel pump, did you have you switch to the new harness? Check your wiring.
Could it simply be a relay?
My dash gauges went nuts but the car runs.
Do you hear the fuel pump running?
Did you replace the fuel filter? Should be on the frame under the driver.
Bosch fuel pumps are the way to go. The ret seem to **** out after 60,000.
Good luck.

Check for FUEL PUMP "FUSE" at Fuse Panel and Also RELAY in Power Distribution Box. But More times than NOT "FOR ME"

Where do i find the fuel pump regulator on a 1997 astro van with 4.3 vortec v6? Is it replacable or ajustable?

depends on the type of fuel injection on the motor... on the CSEFI injector assembly the regulator is located under the air intake plenum on the back of the fuel meter body

Fuel pump pressure

Try loosening the gas cap and see if that helps. Today's cars have no vents on the tank that don't have something to regulate the amount of ventilation. One of these systems may have failed. Loosening the cap stops a vapor lock.

If that doesn't do it, suspect a fuel pump regulator. Get a fuel pressure tester and see what delivery you have. Should be about 50 psi. Too low means weak pump or too much bypass. Bypass is regulated by the regulator.

Chevy astro van turns over but wont start when

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,

It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
No gas
Bad fuel pump
