Instead of dropping tank I would remove the bed it is alot easier.

Sounds like either pump/wiring, or connector on top of the pump unit. My best advice would be to drop the tank and check for voltage at the fuel pump wires (power and ground) for a short period of time when you turn the key on (Gray wire/ black wire on the 4 pin connector) If you moved the wires and it worked it definitely points to a bad wire close to the tank or loose connection on top of the tank.

Tell me some ideas i'm stumped... I had a bad fuel pump and I replaced it, and pump now comes on, the car started and drove for an hour and parked for the night. Next day I have the same problem the pump...


Could be the fuel pump. Where did you get it? Years ago I quit buying pumps, alternators, and starters from discount stores. I bought a fuel pump that died the next day. Only to do the job again. Now I work I do get OE parts. I have only replaced one OE part in the last ten+ years. I could even tell you how many discount parts I have replace that are less than 6 months old. Chinese made junk.

Truck will start and then stops just started acting up


Found on a '92 Toyota pickup w/V6, a bad/intermittent fuel pump relay.
Had fuel rail pressure so fooled us initially, found by listening to pump run then quit, cycle key and pump would run again then quit, sometimes when trying to start, motor would start and run for a few seconds then quit, or not start at all, this created by intermittent relay operation. Need two people, one at passenger side by tank and other to work ignition switch.
Relay located behind right, passenger kick panel, dealer item I believe about $28.00.
Just another possibility.

Shuts down for no apparent reason


Have you figured out if you are loosing spark or fuel pressure when the engine quits ? Could be a relay, coil, fuel pump, or various other electrical components.

My pickup just stops while driving, after it warms up. I have had to change the fuel pump fuse, then it will run ok while it is cold. Then it will blow the fuse and stop. Does this sound like relay or fuel...


You most likely have a bad wiring issue on top of the fuel tank sending unit/fuel pump holder bracket. A replacement of this unit will be necessary to rectify your condition; I change these quite often; a very common failure, with exactly the symptom you describe.

You will either need to drop the tank (hard), or remove the bed (easier) to replace the unit.

89 f150 wont fire


i suspect a fuel pump malfunction. i would check there first. make sure the fuel **** fuse is good and well. check the lines for blockages. after you run the fuel pump/fuse/line test, go to the distributor/coil and test the spark value. i would also check wires as well. your problem should be in one of these specific areas.

On cold days the engine quits, after driving 1 mile


Distributor Ignition Pickup may be defective, these are sensitive to temp changes, they will cause a loss of spark..

Chevy Trucks, Blazers, S10 pickup and the like will vapor lock ecspecially the 2000 models. Do not tighten the gas cap past 1 click. There is a tube that runs from the top of the tank down and this gets hot and collapses or burns in half. We just bought a reinforced rubber tube cut it to lengh and use it instead of part and it's worked grat for 2 years so far.
