Car ran out of gas and has been hard to crank every since. I don't hear the fuel pump prime but I do hear the relay click. There is no gas expelled or pressure coming from schrader valve and also batt

the fuel pump is burnt out. the pump uses the fuel to cool itself. running low fuel the pump heats up and burns the plastic gears inside. thats why the fuse blew. need to take out gas tank to change pump.

2000 gmc jimmy stalled while accererating and will not start

Sounds like the fuel pump failed. Have someone stand by the key while you go to the gas tank and take off the cap. Put your ear to the tank filler tube and have them turn on the key. You should hear a hum for about 2 seconds and then goes quite. If you don't hear anything the fuel pump stopped working. Could be a: fuse, relay, or bad pump. If you hear the sound then go under the hood and find the fuel rail service valve. It will be on the fuel rail, it looks like the air stem that is on your tires. It should have a cap on it remove the cap and press in on the valve it should shoot out gas, If it just trickles or no gas then you could have a plugged filter.

Both fuel relay fuses making clicking noises under hood in 2001 dodge 2500 v8

the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.

How can i get to the fuel tank send unit only reads half full

well if you have it an empty fuel light came on to your dash, then you have travelled and just consumed the whole entire reserved gas in your tank, so when you are filling it up again, it will fill-up first the reservoir for your reserved gas then if it reach the minimum level of gas in your tank, then the fuel sensor unit will tell you now the exact amount of gas level on your gauge just keep filling it up (gas), DO not Press the entire trigger of the pump, just press it half way and moderate while filling -up gas so wont stop clicking and you thought that you have your tank full already but it was not.

Ran out of gas, Got car started for a few minutes with a gallon then conked out and won't re-start. Put some dry gas in tank in case gas can w/old gas. Maybe fuse or fuel pump? Don't know where pump is...

Could be a dirty fuel filter, or intermittent fuel pump. To test the fuel pump, put the key in the ignition, then turn it up one, not start but on, and listen near the gas tank area for a click or some type of noise. If none then it might be the fuel filter (note if you don't hear anything it doesn't necessarily mean that the pump is bad). Now as for the fuel pump, it's located under the car near the gas tank and you can easily un-clip it (be careful as it might be full of gas) and that's how to remove it. Hope this helps. Best Regards.

Check engine light comes on after refueling the vhicle. gauge doesn't read full, then it will. light goes out after a day or two.

Also, be sure to not over-fill the gas tank. When filling the tank, when it sounds full (you can hear gas gush up the filler neck) and when the filler clicks off the first time...don't be tempted to keep clicking more gas into the tank because over-filling can cause a variety of problems (including setting the light) and can eventually saturate/ruin the fuel vapor canisters.

¿¿¿Engine computer Dead???

hi as for the fuel tank problem ? this is a vacumm problem created by the fuel pump workinh hard to draw fuel thus creating a vacuum inside tank suggest you ckeck the ventilation pipe from tank (under n/s/r wing along side filler pipe to see it is not kinked or blocked preventing tank to breath as pump draws fuel ?? as for excess fuel consumption? have you checked the air filter? remove it and check underneath ! this will give smoke you mention and you will have to press throttle more to overcome restriction air flow so more gas is more fuel used and little air to engine ? if you say engine stalls this is probably a result of tank vacuum and more fuel than air ?? hope this helps you sort it?
