if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

SOURCE: air in lines

SOUNDS LIKE A CRACKED SUCTION STUB OR LOOSE THREADED FITTING SUCKING IN AIR.

OR THE CHECK VALVE IS FAILING AND ALLOWING THE WATER TO LEAK BACK SLIGHTLY OR ALL THE WAY BACK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD A FOOT VALVE AT THE END OF THE PIPE.

LONG SHOT, BUT THE BLADDER TANK IS CHARGED WITH AIR AND MAY HAVE A HOLE IN THE BLADDER CAUSING THE TANK AIR TO ENTER THE SYSTEM. SHOULD RUN OUT QUICKLY THOUGH. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

The pressure tank must have a certain amount of air in it so pump doesn't cycle as you say. The new pressure tanks have a bladder that separates air from water and keeps the pump from cycling so much. Make sure your pressure switch on the pump is OK--ie doesn't have burned contacts!

It is possible that sediment has clogged the opening that supplies the sensing pressure to the switch. Shut down the pump, open a valve to drop pressure completely, remove the tube where it enters the pump body and stick a small wire just into the hole, once that is clear, see if you get water to come out when the pump is activated. Next, you can see if the entire sensing tube is clear by disconnecting the end on the pressure switch and ensuring flow there. Lastly, make sure there is nothing plugging the inlet at the pressure switch. This has a rubber diaphragm in it, so do not stick anything up inside, just ensure that there is no rust/corrosion in the inlet area.

The water and therefore the pressure has to be going somewhere. If you are sure that there are no leaks in the house or outside, then the water is going back into the well. There is a check valve either in the suction line of the pump between the top of the well and the pump or down in the well.
If this check valve fails, it allows water to go the wrong way and back to the well. The result is that you lose pressure.
Secondly, you have to be sure that there are no air leaks between the top of the well and the inlet to the check valve. Leaks in that piping will make repriming difficult.
Write back with more and I'll try to help more.

Bike wont start


Check the fuel tap is turned on and that the fuel filter is clean. If this is all good, you should check that fuel is getting into the fuel reservoir on the carb. If no fuel is getting through, your fuel pump may have failed. But, as you don't say the make and model of your bike, I can't be sure.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous I am have trouble with the fuel delivery it's not getting any power back to the fuel pump we had it started when we ran a wire to fuse box and ran it strait to fuel pump...


check the pressure regulator and wiring
some models use the regulator to notify the ECM that pressure has been reached so the ECM cuts off power to the pump relay until the pressure falls

Cold start problem mazda 2001


Could be the fuel pump relay, or a faulty pump, or pressure regulator.
The fuel system is supposed to hold pressure after you turn the engine off. A faulty pump or pressure regulator could allow fuel to drain back into the tank overnight. You would need to crank the engine for several seconds to build pressure back up.
The relay could be faulty and not giving the fuel pump power until the oil pressure comes up.

Spark plug loaction 2004 trail blazer


Remove the resonator box on the top of the engine. You must disconnect the intake air tube and the connection to the throttle body. Be aware that there are two connections to the airbox resonator. One for the fuel pressure regulator (If the 04 model still has that) and the PCV hose. After this is off it will reveal the coil packs (6) on top of the motor. Carefully remove the two bolts that hold the coil packs down. They are long and thin so a tap with a hammer on top is sometime a good loosening move. The pLugs should be good for 100,000 miles. Be sure that it is not a coil pack that has gone bad before wasting money on the plugs.
  1. 4 tends to get water on it durring heavy rain if your hood seal is bad and you are parked on a slope.
Once the coil pack is removed the plug will be easily removed however they are inside the well.

Just bought a 2001 yamaha yzf 426 how do start


For a cold start, turn fuel on at fuel tap. Pull out the choke knob. slowly kick the kickstarter until you feel it become harder(more resistance). push past this resistance then release the kickstarter. What you have done is put the piston in the position just after top dead centre of the compression stroke.Now give it a big kick whilst opening the throttle slightly. There is a real techneque to it so don't think your the only one who has problems! Otherwise, ask your local Yammy dealer for a look at the owners manual. It has a description on how to both hot & cold start your bike. They may let you photocopy it. Good luck.
If it just isn't happening try removing the sparkplug,put it back in the plug cap,rest the plugs metal body on the cylinder head (don't hold it there or you could get a nasty shock) Now kick the kickstarter while watching the sparkplug gap. Did it spark? If it didn't theres a problem. No spark means it wont run! Then you'll need to find out why theres no spark. Hope this helps to get you started Otherwise let us know and i'll se what else I can suggest.

The fuel pump is not pumping the fuel.


Is the fuel pump actually coming on??? If it isn't, I would start by checking for a fuel pump relay.  This is usually located up in the engine compartment in a black box on the drivers side.  Relays are small black boxes approx 1"x1".  These have a tendency to go out just like fuses.  Also double check your fuses.  If you suspect a that a relay is bad, you can interchange them with other relays that look the exact same to see if they really are the problems.  These relays are very quick and easy to change and are very cheap.  They usually run no more than $10-15.
Any further questions, feel free to ask.
