My 1990 olds cutlass supreme will not stay running it has fuel and has spark. It will start then dies immediately. Any tips has brand new fuel pump

It could still be a fuel problem. The only way to be certain is to put a fuel pressure tester on it. Autozone may rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Easy to hook up to the shrader valve on the engine fuel rail and test fuel pressure. With key on, pressure must be over 40 psi, 40-44psi is what is called for. If pressure drops below 40 after it starts, then you know it was a fuel problem. Either the fuel filter is clogged, or the pump quits because the oil pressure switch is faulty. That switch is tied into the pump circuit, keeps the pump running after the engine is running.

If fuel pressure stays good, maybe problem is in the ignition system. Have the Ignition Control Module tested, also the crank position sensor.

Pressure switch clicks off and on will not stop

could be several things that cause this. I would first try increasing the spread between the upper and lower limits. it they are set too close together you can get this kind of bouncing on and off. Also, how old is the switch? as they age they get less and less accurate at reading the pressure accurately and this could be the problem. Longer shot, could be a leak in the well check valve. Water leaking back down into the well and that keeps turning the pump back on when there are no faucets open.

The well has no tank and just feeds a long one inch line with a shut off at the end. This configuration has worked fine in the past now when the well pump is powered up the switch goes into a rapid on off...

You are saying that the switch opens and closes fast? You need to put a pressure gauge on the line and see if it is bouncing up and down, If it is then we need to know what type make and model of pump you have on it.

Oil gage needle bouncing up and down

There is a sending unit right by oil filtersometimes it get clogged . However, this is a 16 year old car have them check out the oil pump pressure with a gauge.
Oil pump on this car is a pain in the @##%^ to do but its better than a new engine.

1992 mazda navajo oil gauge bounces

Could be a faulty oil pressure sender switch ( quite a common fault ) . Remove it and fit a mechanical gauge to test.
Much less likely ( if the test shows fluctuating pressure) the oil pressure bypass valve may be sticking. Make sure your oil is nice and clean, contaminants can sludge up the oilways. The bypass valve is usually in or near the oil pump on most cars.
My pick would be the switch.
Happy hunting!!

I have a well water pump that will not get top pressure. Does it need to be bleed from the pump to the well?

how pressure will it build does the pump stey running or does the pressure switch kick out ? if u hear a click and pump stops u need to adjust pressure switch so it will go higher or get a new switch switches are rated like 20-50 20-60 what is ur switch rated for ? if the switch doesn't kick out and pump just keeps running and running u either have a bad pump or ur sucking air
