I have a 1998 Jeep Cherokee I was driving it and quit running the fuel pump quit running and the gas gage stopped working

check your fuel pump relay. if not that, then it's your fuel pump. the gas gauge is in the fuel pump, so if your fuel pump stopped working, your gas gauge won't work

Spa is warm only. It seems that the heater pump only works when other pump runs

as this is a 220 volt system you need to be sure both sides of the elect line is proving proper voltages at each junction.
one might fail some where at a switch or breaker an let some functions still kinda work. like in your case.

Hi!how to check fuel pump work or no. rav4 54reg.

If the engine runs the pump works. Try this. On the starter motor there is a small diameter wire that can easily be removed. Pull this wire off the starter and hold the key in the start position. The starter will not operate. Listen for the fuel pump to see if it's running while you hold the key in the start position. If you can hear the pump running then it's ok. This trick works if you ever run out of gas too. It will run the pump until gas pressure is back so you don't have to run the battery down trying to start an out of gas engine.

1998 chevy astro van sometimes works, sometimes not.? At timesm rarely, the astro will crank but will not start. Fuel pump not cycling and making its hum noise so I changed the fuel pump with an AC Delco...

When you first turn on the key, no crank, the fuel pump should run for a few seconds then stop. There shows to be an oil pressure switch in parallel with the fuel pump relay. It's just a redundant power supply to the fuel pump. Once it cranks enough to bring up oil pressure and the switch closes, the pump will run even w/o the relay. Both the fuel pump relay and oil pressure switch get voltage from the ecm b fuse.
At the fuel pump connector, check voltage and ground, when problem is ongoing. Gray wire is voltage--black wire is ground.
You could pull the fuel pump relay, use jumper wire between terminals on load side of relay. The load side is that line with arrow head, when energized that line moves to the other terminal. As you can see, the orange wire is hot all the time, the gray wire carries voltage to fuel pump. If it runs with jumper, then check control side of relay, the control side has to have voltage and ground, dark green wire with white tracer is voltage comes from pcm. The black wire is ground.

I have a Fimco 2.1 gpm pump that worked fine last week. I ran it until it didn't spray anymore. This week the motor runs but it seems to have lost its prime,it won't pump.Any ideas? The filter is clean. No...

I don't think that these pumps run dry very well ... most likely you ruptured a diaphragm by running it dry. How long did it run dry? ... take it apart and see if the diaphragm or valves are damaged. You will need to replace them before the pump will work.
