HI...
Yes the more probable is a fual line crossed.
you need to identify the pressure line. vacuum line and the return line.
The pressure go to the fuel filter.
The return go to the fuel tank. by the pump housing.
An the vacuum to the canister.

OK... I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

1989 trans am gta, 5.7 ltr tpi, replaced my battery with brand new gell cell, as soon as I connect positive cable ican hear fuel rails prime and continue, started car and after shutting off ignition


If the Oil Sending Unit becomes defective, it often keeps the fuel pump running even after the car's engine is shut off. Replacing the Oil Sending Unit should correct the problem. Believe it or not Pontiac uses the oil sending unit as a back up to power the fuel pump.

Gas pump keeps tripping off often


you have a bad charcoal canister. Go underneath the left rear of the car, pull the big hose off the charcoal canister, and if charcoal come out of the hose, replace the canister. This is a common problem w/Hyundai and Kia.

Little Black Box, Fuel Pump, Fuel Lines


it sounds like you have a line hooked up to the wrong spot, and that little black box sounds like the charcoal canister, which is used to filter out fuel vapors. it sounds like either the supply or return line has been hooked into the vapor line. retrace your steps, largest diameter line is supply, medium is return, smallest line is vapor line. good luck!

Open the hood and smell gas fumes. shops says it is the feul sending unit


The fuel sending unit is the basically the gas gauge.

I would check charcoal evap canister to see if it is full, check vacuum lines. If car runs rich, then have 02 sensors replaced. You can also get a multi-tester and test fuel pressure regulator to make sure it is operating properly, if car runs good, skip this step and check gas lines, and fume lines.
