Turns off and fuel wont kick on

I swaped the fuel pump relay, but still when i am driving it wants to shut off, gas cuts off and gauges light up for a split second, then it just keeps going? could it be the oil pressure switch?

Did you swap them both? Now if guages light up, it might be something else, such as a loose wire on ignition. either switch or coil or something else.

Ran fine, shut off. Came back out, turned over but not start. Had jump started twice but put in gear and died. Question: I know low on gas, can this effect anything?


Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.

Our 1998 gm safari said check gauge and the engine won't start,We thought it was the gas so I went to the gas station and got gas. I was wondering what does that mean?


check gauges means that the car senses something is not working properly, such as temp gauge reading to hot ,or oil pressure reading to low ,fuel to low, its to get your attention that something is wrong .

Replaced the fuel pump & main relay. but the


First of all, why do you think it is fuel at all, since it could be the ignition?
Second is that if the car shuts down, how do you know it is not simply a clogged fuel filter?
A bad pressure return regulator can blow out fuel pumps by causing the pressure to be so high the pump over works itself.

I suggest you need better data.
A fuel pressure gauge would be nice.
You could improvise one out of a cheap mechanical oil pressure gauge. You could also run some long thin wires to the fuel pump relay output or even to the pump itself, and hang a little LED off the dash as a temporary diagnostic indicator light.
To catch an intermittent, you need constant data.

Get a second opinion! Sounds like your guy might have cut corners to save money or labour. You might get stuck with this one, sorry to say.

Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

Durango cuts off while driving


hi, sounds to me that either the fuel pump is going out or the fuel pump relay is acting up. the cheapest way to check the relay first by simply swaping the relay with another relay in the power distribution box under the hood (swap it with the A/C relay)

Suspected Fuel Pump Failure


first, tap on the gas tank to see if it sounds empty, second, when you turn your key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on (faint whirring sound from gas tank) for a couple seconds.
