I would suggest to check the battery first, normally the votage should be above 12V. You can try boost from another car, if the van starts, then replace the battery.

You have not run a OBD2 electronic engione control fault code test, get a code reader and do that first and don't replace anymore parts until that is done and you have the fault codes and have done the proper diagnostics for each code.

Just put in new fuel pump but my 94 caravan wont start, i checked the fuse its fine. the van makes a noise like it wants to start but it wont.


Hi Amy:
First, I suggest spray some starter fluid in the throttle and see if it starts and try to start. Also, confirm if... do you hear the pump boot up for about two or three seconds when you turn the ignition ON? If not, then you know it's a source problem or the pump itself.

After you mentioned replacing the pump, then it's safe to say it's a power supply problem to the pump, or at least that's where I would check first.

Check the plug-in under the van near the tank for corrosion and good connection, then check the ground wire right next to it on the frame rail, make sure it isn't corroded and has a good connection. Then work back to the fuel pump relay from their. The relay is either on the firewall by itself or in the fuse box under the hood.

If you do hear the pump boot up, then at this point, I would check for spark. Check the coil wire to the cap, then check a spark plug wire from the cap to see if you have spark at those two points.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Blazer wont start


You are getting good spark to the plugs? Have to assume you retimed it after you changed the rotor and cap. Wires are good?

Could be the ignition module, but they usually are either good or bad and not itermittent(sp)...

If it trying but just not 'catching'.. seems like a timing issue, or possibly the coil (although coils tend to be good or bad as well)

2000 chevy express 1500 van having starting issues


Start with fuel system. Listen for fuel pump humm at fuel tank No humm check wiring to pump for power. Then check for spark at plugs and wires. Remove wire from coil and hold near engine and see arch when you crank. No arch. Replace ignition Modular inside distributor cap or cap or rotor

2001 gmc jimmy not starting


Did they do a fuel pressure pressure test to determine that its fuel pump? And if so what was the p.s.i.?It should be around 55 to 60 p.s.i. a few pounds under 55 p.s.i. Pump needs replaced, Your shop should have chk. this when it was there the first time. Did they by chance chg. the fuel filter, that can hinder it from starting too.
