Replace the fuel pump twice within a week on 1994 S10 pickup. Will not pump fuel, have also changed the fuel filter and checked the inline filter. Still not able to get fuel.

Check on top of the tank and make sure there are no kinks in the hoses leading off the pump. Also I have run into situations where the new fuel pump simply died due to faulty assembly at the factory.

Road with a new fuel pump installed also new filter & relay pump cranks 65 psi pressure drops and quits, maybe if you crank long enough it might start, could this be fuel pressure regulator ?

What Make vehicle ? fuel pressure regulator could be part of fuel pump module . A lot of vehicles have electronic return less fuel systems an have a fuel pump driver module ,an is controlled by the PCM .

1996 Lexus 400 where fuel reset

To answer your question specifically it would be no. There
is no inertia switch that feeds the fuel pump that can be turned off or reset . The engine control computer turns on a series of two different relays to control power to the fuel pump. When in the start position the circuit opening relay and the fuel pump relay or both energize causing the fuel pump to run at full pressure or fast speed. From there the engine control computer determines which demand is on the fuel pump and either turns off the fuel pump relay and leaves
the circuit opening relay on to supply power through a resistor to slow the pump down for less demand. The EFI main relay is the main supply relay to both of these sub relays. The fuel pump is powered up ultimately by the 20 amp EFI number one fuse. All of these components are located in the fuse box under the hood. If the circuit opening relay is not working it's powered up by the 10 amp
ignition fuse inside the vehicle. It's unlikely it is the 10 amp ignition fuse because that powers up a lot of other things also.

Did you check fuel pump electrical circuit ? Look at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in making the fuel pump work. No , the knock sensor can't cause this ! Do you know how to do automotive electrical circuit testing using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? How to read an use a wiring diagram to pin point areas for testing in a electrical circuit ! What do you think makes that fuel pump work ? AIR !!!! Looking at a wiring diagram I see a fuel pump relay that gets B+ voltage from the engine control relay. The engine computer energizes both, relays .There is a fuel pump resistor inline before the fuel pump.

How do I check the fuel pressure on a 2000 model mazda millenia with a 2.3 engine in it


You connect a fuel pressure gauge like this to the pressure rail. Pressure in this car must be between 35 and 45 psi. If pressure is too low look for kinked fuel lines and eventually replace the pump. If the pressure drops down more than 10 psi in five minutes or if the pressure is considerably higher than that replace the fuel pressure regulator. Below the parts that may need testing:


1. Fuel tank
2. Shut-off valve
3. Non-return valve
4. Fuel pump
5. Fuel pump (Transfer)
6. Fuel filter (High-pressure)
7. Injector
8. Pressure regulator
9. PRC solenoid valve
10. Fuel pump relay
11. Fuel pump resistor and relay (KJ model)

1995 nissan pickup truck fuel problem

Fuel injected or carb? Make sure fuel line itself is clear. Some pumps are designed to self regulate (carb systems) some continually pump and a psi regulator sends back the excess fuel back to the tank (fuel inj systems) If the line is obstructed then pump can't deliver fuel fulltime.

If you think pump is not on consistent, try running a dedicated wire through a switch directly to the pump. If it works then you are looking for an electrical fault going to pump. Good luck.
