Easiest way is to check the carb. Sometimes things in there can get a little gunky and will restrict the flow of fuel to the engine. If everything is clean in the carb, then yes, it is the fuel pump.

My float is stuck and buying a new fuel pump assembly is out of the question, is there anything i can do to repair myself?


It is rare that this will help, but sometimes if you fill the fuel tank all the way to the top of the fuel inlet (where you put gas in) it can "unstick" the float.

One possible reason a float sticks is someone overfilled the tank.

My escort just started running rough it doesn t want to drive it putts and i smell gas


Did you run out of gas before filling? The fuel Filter may be clogged or The fuel pump may be dead. Only a Mechanic can tell.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there a fuel pump cutoff switch on the 1989 ciera that can be reset or if the pump cannot be heard clicking in the tank is that the ?


fuel pump is in the tank & can be heard for 2 seconds when key is turned on. there is no
reset but by listening at gas cap you can hear if pump runs or not. spray carberator cleaner in
throtle body(carberator) to see if it helps with starting. there is a test port to check fuel pressure if you think its a fuel problem & carb cleaner helps it start

My truck stalled yesterday a.m. - someone added gas to the carberator and it started right up. Today it won't start at all. I'm thinking it's a fuel injector problem.


It might be but first, is your fuel pump kicking on? Also, a clogged fuel filter can cause this as well. Listen for your fuel pump to kick on. If it doesn't, it might be your pump. We know it is gas related and that is good.

My chevy blazer is turning over but it won't start even when I put gas in the carberator.


You don't have a carberator on it, it's fuel injected. Id try spraying carb cleaner in the throttle while you have someone turn it over. If it fires up for a few seconds then dies then you might have a fuel pump problem or fuel filter clogged. If it still doesnt fire up then check if you have spark, if no spark see if your crank sensor is good and if your coil is getting power. If your coil is not getting power you might have a crank sensor problem. Try this and let me know if it helps.

I started the car and the first time i turned it over (this is a manual) it died while still in neutral.The second time, i got it in reverse,got on the road and it died in first.when we start it, it runs...


Well you could have definetly run out.

As far as the fuel pump, there are lots that depends on if it was damaged. First off a fuel pump should never be run dry, damage CAN OCCUR. Second, if your car is up there in miles the fuel pump may be weak and not giving enough fuel, or you ARE IN FACT, out of fuel. Next, if the car is up in miles, and after you put gas in, and it runs fine...problem solved....and I wouldn't worry much about it, excpet for the fact that the fuel pump will fail sooner or later...allmost all do after 100-200 thousand miles on the car. If you put gas in and it works..drive till it doesnt run anymore. But try to keep fuel in the tank to get the best possible life from your fuel pump.

Couple of days ago car started choking like I was running out of gas my gas guage could be broken but can someone tell me where the carburator ? is so that I can put gas in it.


Your 95 Blazer does not have a carburetor (correct spelling too) It is fuel injected so injectors are used for each cylinder instead of a carburetor. If you run out of fuel and your vehicle is facing uphill when that happens you should have some fuel in the tank left. When leveling at a level position the vehicle will start again. You see the fuel pump is in the fuel tank and fuel is needed at all times to prime when starting. If on a grade the fuel goes to one end if only a gallon or two is left and the pump will **** air only causing a stalling problem I added all this in just so you remember this incase it ever happens to you

Take off your gas cap and have someone stand there with thier ear at the hole, (no smoking), turn the key to on just before start and they should hear the fuel pump humming. if they dont then try to start. if it doesnt start turn key off and at that instant the pump should be heard again. What i think is happening is your pump is not energizing . Its supposed to energize when turning your key on and off. This can be caused by a bad fuel pump or pump relay switch. Hope this helps. please rate me
