Is the fuel pump relay and fuses ok! no relay, no fuel. Have you checked for fuel at the fuel pressure check port? It'll be a little schraeder valve (like the on your tires ) also check for a kinked hose at fuel tank. also check fuel pressure, if need be.

Do you have a voltmeter to check for voltage at the pump? This should be your next step.

I changed the gas tank on my chevy s10 pickup 6cyl 2wd and i just replaced the gas filter recently because my truck basiclly stoped getting fuel the lines and pump are new also. but my truck was sitten for...


There is no need to bleed the fuel system. Do you want to drain the old gas? You can just disconnect the fuel line at the engine or if front of the tank and jump the pump relay socket to power up the pump.

Runs for a while but then acts like fuel pump is not working we have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter it is getting gas from pump to motor but now it has quit agin


if it only happens below 1/4 tank this sounds like a fuel pickup problem in the tank or the fuel sending unit is off.the cheapest way to fix it is to keep the fuel level above 1/4 tank of fuel.

Will not start, turns over but fails to start, seems as if it is not getting gas. Perhaps the fuel pump or sending unit is bad. gas guage does work now either.


can you hear the pump run?? if you can i would start by changing the fuel filter before i droped the tank... also did you check your relay for the fuel pump, under the hood?? the sending unit doesnt send the fuel to the engine, the sending unit is what operates your gauge... so, if your pump is junk and got to drop the tank, the sending unit is built in the pump, so kill 2 birds with one stone, and replace the fuel pump assembly, and everything will work.
hope this helps

I cant get the cap off of my gas tank to take the fuel pump out, how do I get the fuel pump out?


Relieve the fuel pressure at the pump switch located in the passenger compartment under the carpet of the transmission hump on the passenger side. Remove the fuel tank. Turn the lock ring counterclockwise until it's loose and remove the lock ring. Pull the fuel pump/sending unit from the tank being careful not to bend the arm for the sending unit float. Discard the old lock ring seal. Installation is reverse of removal with the following additions: (a)Apply a coat of heavy grease to the new lock ring seal to hold it in place during assembly. Install the seal in the lock ring groove. (b)Install the fuel sender/pump unit into the fuel tank so that the tabs of the unit are positioned into the slots in the fuel tank. Make sure to keep the seal in place during installation until the lock ring has been tightened properly. (c)Hold the fuel sender/pump unit in place, install and tighten the locking ring clockwise until the stop is against the retainer ring tab. - Mazda Pickups Repair Manual

2004 kia sodona was stopped at a stop light with a half a tank of gas and than 5 seconds later gas gage read empty and the fuel light came on


This is nothing more than the tank sending unit that has failed. I would look into a junk yard and see about buying a complete unit(pump/sending unit assembly). It will be substantially less than new. Let me know if you need instructions on repair.

Wont start or stay on


From the info you provided, it seems like it is not getting constant supply of fuel. I think that don't have a carburator. It has a TBI(Throttle Body Injector. You should hear a faint humming noise at the back coming from within the fuel tank when you turn the key on. Thats the fuel pump. Your fuel pump may have gone out.

Fuel Pump


The fuel pump is in the gas tank, the best way to do this is to get some friends and remove the bed from the frame. There is i believe 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, and don't forget to remove the hardware to the gas tank filler neck. Once the bed is off the frame, you can get to the fuel tank. Disconnect the wire harness and might as well replace the harness since there only $12.00 last i looked, disconnect the fuel line and return line. Remove the fuel pump retainer ring and lift up on the fuel pump sending unit. To install replace the rubber O ring and oil it before installing the new fuel pump sending unit. Install the fuel sending unit retaining ring, gas lines, new wire harness, and filler tube. Good lime also to check the hose to the EVAP since you can inspect them, look for any dry rot to the vacuum lines and replace if needed. Reinstall the bed and use lock tight to the bed bolts or replace them with stainless bolts. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and you might as well change the fuel filter while your have the bed off. The other way is to drop the gas tank which means draining the tank and raising the truck.

Fuel delivery problem


There usually is a strainer in the gas tank. After 23 years, anything is possible. If you have a carburetor, replace it, or have it cleaned. If fuel injected, the big hose from the air filter could be damaged and shifting loose. If the engine doesn't see the right vacuum, it won't work right. Check all the little vacuum lines. Get a vacuum gauge, learn how to use it. Do a fuel flow test to see if your tank is clogged.
