    Fuel pump quit working so I replaced it. The new pump does the same thing. I have checked the ASD and Fuel Relays and they are fine. I pull the plug at the fuel pump and attach the multimeter. When the key is turned it shows Voltage to the pump and while cranking the motor it also shows voltage. But the pump doesn't go on. I do an Ohms check on the pump and it says it is good. Sometimes the pump turns on and works fine. Sometimes it doesn't do anything. What can I test now? Any chance it could be the ignition switch in the steering column?

How to Replace a Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter in a Cadillac


The Cadillac has an electric fuel pump, and you should check its fuses and relays and ensure you have fuel before inspecting the pump. If your vehicle still has difficulty getting fuel, you can clean or replace the fuel pump.

Things You'll Need:
Fuel pump kit
Fuel tank sending unit wrench
Torque wrench Replace the fuel pump is challenge.
1.Determine which fuel pump your Cadillac Escalade will need. This depends not only on the make and model, but also the engine size. Models built from 1998 to 2000 have a 5.7 L engine, 2002 to 2006 models may have a 5.3 L or 6.0 L engine and models built after 2006 have a 6.2 L engine.
2.Prepare your vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure, drain and disconnect the fuel tank.
3.Disconnect the fuel and evaporative emission lines from the fuel tank. Remove the fuel sender assembly and the seal with a fuel tank sending unit wrench, and pull the strainer off the fuel sender. Remove the fuel pump's electrical connector and its retaining clip from the fuel level sensor. Remove the fuel sensor's electrical connector from the fuel sensor in addition to its retaining clip.
4.Remove the fuel level sensor by squeezing the locking tangs and remove the fuel pressure sensor. Discard the old fuel tank seal and fuel strainer.
5.Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and be to replace the fuel strainer and seal. Use a torque wrench to tighten the attaching bolts for the fuel tank strap to 30 ft. lbs.
The following is the instructions of replacing fuel filter:
The symptoms of a bad fuel filter include a loss in horse power, very sluggish acceleration and, in some cases, difficulty starting. Replacing the fuel filter is always the best policy because you can't reliably unclog a filter. In the Cadillac Escalade, 2002-2006, they replace easily. The 5.3L engine filter replaces in a different way. Manufacturers suggest replacement of fuel filter every 60,000 miles.
Replace the fuel filter is easy.
1.Locate the fuel filter. Normally this is on the passenger side wheel well or just inside the engine compartment. In the Cadillac Escalade, it mounts on the fuel tank and is integral with the fuel pump assembly. Before removal of the filter, disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the pressure in the fuel system.
2.Lift the vehicle to gain access to the fuel pump assembly. Remove the threaded fittings from the filter and cap the fuel pipes to prevent contamination. Inspect the o-rings on the fuel pipes and replace if deteriorated.
3.Change the filter and reattach the fittings immediately. Tighten the fittings to 18 foot pounds. Remount to the clip and lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable and start the ignition. To fill the filter and get gas to the ignition system, turn the ignition on for two seconds and then off for ten seconds. The vehicle should start after this.
4.Replace the fuel filter at the first opportunity. Filters are not serviceable items, they are disposable. Never rely on a clogged fuel filter for any length of time

We have replaced fuel pump in a 98 ego metro LSi drove home ran fine. Now it won't start any ideas why it won't start.


Pam, was the fuel filter replaced at the same time that the fuel pump was replaced? If not, replace the fuel filter. Often, the filter will get clogged with debris. When that happens, the fuel pump will be ruined. Replacing the pump without replacing the fuel filter can ruin the new pump. It is also possible that your new fuel pump is defective. Now that most replacement parts are made in China and the third world, there is virtually NO quality control. I'm a professional mechanic and defective brand new parts are a BIG problem in this industry. Was the fuel pump relay replaced when the new fuel pump was installed? Always install a new relay, as a failing [your old] fuel pump will often damage the relay. This will cause problems with the new fuel pump. I would advise that you install a fuel pressure test gauge to the engine. This will allow you verify whether or not the engine is receiving enough fuel pressure. If the pump works but the pressure is low, also check the fuel pressure regulator. The web links below should help you.

FYI, there is also a "sock" style pre-filter on the fuel pump. This also needs to be replaced any time that you replace the fuel pump.

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?


Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

Fuel pump locatio for a 1965 nustang V8, also the location of the fuel filter if any.


Integral Fuel Pump & Filter (Replaceable Element Type) Prior to 1966, the fuel pump was equipped with an integral fuel filter, featuring a replaceable element. It is recommended that this filter element be replaced every 36 months or 36,000 miles, or in the event that the filter becomes clogged. It is important to use the proper filter element for your fuel pump and to observe the instructions for positioning the element within the fuel pump unit. These instructions will be printed on the replacement element.

2002 kia sedona, can you replace the fuel filter without replacing the fuel pump


the fuel filter is inline with the fuel line in front of the fuel tank. Inside the tank is a sock that filters the fuel in the suction pipe to the fuel pump also That sock filter is always replaced upon replacing the pump only.

Replace Fuel Filter on 2006 Chevy Aveo Hatchback


If the fuel filter is mounted inside the fuel tank at the pump it does not need replacing and is a permanent filter. All you have to do it follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the engine. If the filter is mounted in the fuel line you will find it.

I , i try to find the fuel filter for my hyundai elantra 2001


The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located 
in the fuel tank.

On 2001 models the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump. To replace the fuel filter, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the back seat and take fuel pump cover off to get to the fuel pump.Then you have to 1) disconnect the electrical connector from fuel pump/fuel sending unit, 2) disconnect the high pressure hose and the fuel return hose from the fuel pump and 3) remove the fuel pump mounting flange screws. You can then lift the fuel pump and replace the filter. 

Good luck and hope this helps
