The pump could have still went out. Spray a little starter fluid in the throttle and have some to start it. If it starts keep spaying it a little to keep it running. If it cut off, then most likely the pump or filter need to be changed. Or a fuel pump relay keeping the pump from kicking on. Usually you can open your gas cap and have someone to just turn the ignition on while you listen at the gas hole for a faint or buzzing type sound. This is letting you know the pump is kicking on.

The regulator is probably under the intake manifold along with your injectors...the pump is in the fuel tank and the filter is usually on the firewall...

I WOULD START WITH ELECTRICAL AND FEUL CONNECTIONS. IF YOU HAVE A FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE, CONNECT TO THE FUEL RAIL ON TOP OF THE ENGINE, LOOKS LIKE A TIREVALVE STEM SHOULD HAVE ABOUT 60PSI OR SO.

Wont start. drove the caravan to the store then home and it hasnt started since


It could be just about anything was it driven normal before it died or was it acting up . make sure that the gas is actually getting to the engine if it is i would maybe change the spark plugs. then the computer again . but may start to get costly by guessing you may want to bring it in for test..

1998 Chevy tahoe Hard to start when cold


replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump

Possible fuel pump??


What is the year, make and model? One thing you can do to see if the problem is the fuel pump is to hook up a fuel pressure guage on the fuel rail located on the top o the engine. The valve that you hook the guage up to loos similar to the valve stem on a bike tire or car this will tell you if you are getting fuel pressure or not. Another common problem is the fuel pump relay which can sometimes go bad. This is usually located near your fuse block and they cost around $20 dollars depending on which application requires them. Keep me posted.
