Will turn over but will not start

Our 1997 Chevy suburban will turn over but will not start. My husband checked the fuel pump relay but could not determine if that was the problem- how would we know?

1999 sub,
turns over but will not start. Somewhat solved: there is a fuel line on the air cleaner side that is somewhat stomped up. When the hose is blown in and then reinserted, the truck starts. It will run for awhile but eventually it will clog again. Good luck.

When turning the key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on for a sec or so.take 2 people one turn the key and the other listen by the fuel tank. It might also need a new distributer cap, plugs and wires.

1997 Chevy Suburban Changed fuel pump fuel filter relay new battery engine turns over but will not start. Getting spark. Took off fuel lines going in top of engine not pumping fuel. Any suggestions


There is a fuse that deals with the fuel pump circuit through the ECM. If you haven't checked it's in the fuse panel under the hood in the engine compartment on the drivers side by the brake master cylinder. I hope that you have a cover for it with the names of the fuses. The fuse you want to check will be the fuse marked "ECM B". I gave you a picture of the fuse layout but it's not a good one but I did put an arrow to the one I think it is. I pretty sure that's the one but not 100 percent because it's pretty blurry. In any case there is a fuse marked "ECM B". I would check there if you haven't already. Other than that You may have to check your wiring. There is a fuseable link at the starter you may want to check if that fuse isn't blown. I hope this helps and good luck.

Truck won't start


If it has a vortech V8 It has to have the right fuel PSI or it won't start. Also pick up in distributor could be causeing problem. Cross over style distributor cap also can cause problem. Out of oil? Fuel pressure regulator where found inside the intake manifold with injector cluster, if fuel psi regulator goes bad could be leaking fuel in intake causing oil to get deluted and burn.

92 Chevy Suburban Electrical Fuel System


I assume the fuel pump fuse is good?
The only time voltage will be sent to the fuel pump will be the first 2 to 3 seconds if the starter is not engaged. You will want to crank the engine over and check for voltage on the load side of the relay, circuit #30 at the relay.
Let me know after you check.

97 chevy suburban wont start


try putting a dab of solder on each one of the contacts on the fuel pump relay. i had a similiar situation where the relay contacts in the fuse box got strectched out over time so i put a dab of solder on each terminal to beef the contacts up and it worked perfectly. i think this will work because if the mechanic put a wire jumper in the contacts then electrical it is fine.
