To do it yourself: pull filler neck hose, wiring harness from rear lights, remove tail gate, remove bed bolts, lift bed off frame with friends and slide it back enough to access tank, replace pump unit from top of tank, splice wires as needed for new plug and reassemble in reverse order, done. is about $280.00 using parts store parts. 400 and up at a shop.

Rear car driver side noise when there is gas in the tank and when pushing gas pedal


The problem you are discribing could well be the impending failure of the fuel pump I am assuming that this is a late model fuel injected car . The noise is transfered by the fuel in the tank . Have a tech check and make sure you have only a small amount of fuel in the tank when getting the pump replaced as the gas tank must be removed in order to replace the pump . Hope this is some help

Both fuel relay fuses making clicking noises under hood in 2001 dodge 2500 v8


the clicking noises you are hearing are the relays powering up, that is normal. with somebody in truck try starting itw ith somebody under truck at the gas tank, take a rubberm allet and bang on the tank in the center of it while cranking, if it starts you need a fuel pump. make sure you have gas in tank the sending unit on the fuel pumps go bad all the time.

My 1997 S-10 v-6, 4.3 vortec just stopped running and will not fire at all. It has gas in it but will not fire. It only has 90,000 miles on it.


Turn the key to run and listen for fuel pump in the gas tank to run you should hear a buzzing noise that should only last 3 to 5 seconds then will shut off until you try to start. You should also hear the fuel pump relay click off under the hood. If fuel pump is good you need to check for spark at one of the plugs.

87 s 10 well not run it is not getting gas to the injected


Make sure fuel pump is cylcing,you sould hear pump when you turn key on. Check fuel filter and relay for fuel pump. If still won't start try banging tank hard 4 or 5 times with key on and see if you hear pump cycle.If that works fuel pump needs replacement. Also try pouring some gas in intake to see if it fires up.

Leave the car set all day. Won't start. Bang on


This car has an electric fuel pump. I would say that the connection to the fuel pump is faulty. and when you bang on the tank it scoots it into place enough for a connection. Think of an old tv. old connections you bang on the side works like a charm..

Ran out of gas wont start now


if its petrol engine bang bottom of fuel tank while some one else cranks vehicle over if it starts good just pump jammed if it dont buzz to life and you cant hear fuel pump buzzing ceck for power to it if thats there replace pump. running out of fuel kills electric fuel pumps internally in petrol tanks.

if its diesel you must bleed fuel system taking extreme care if you un do lines some very high pressure
