If the pressure does not get pass 30 psi, then check for leaks along the pipelines and on the tank itself. An air leak on the top portion of the tank can cause the pressure not to trigger the pressure switch. Use soap bubbles to detect any air leak. Although a stuck pressure is not more likely the problem, check it also.

I have a flotec shallow well pump i can not get it to pump the water it stays at 20 pounds did i hook it up wromg


check your pressure tank. It sounds like it is water logged. This means there is no air pressure in it. If you're cut in pressure is set at 30 pounds you must have 30 psi of air pressure in the pressure tank.

If your oil pressure gets to low it can turn off the fuel pump. This may also have saved your engine. The ECM turns on the fuel thru the fuel pump relay for about 5 seconds. When engine is running oil pressure sender supplies the voltage to the pump. When engine shuts off check oil pressure and voltage to fuel pump.

Why wont my Jet pump shut off?


Is the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch clear?

I suggest you remove it and blow through it to make sure it is clear. If the pressure is getting to the switch, it has to shut off ... your switch should be set around 30/50 (on at 30 - off at 50)

Low oil pressure after engine warms up in 94 blazer with 4.3


I have a 99 blazer and ever since I have owned it, it reads lower in pressure when idling, but will go up too 40 while driving. This is normal for the vehicle. If the pressure gets real low, and stays low, it means its time for an oil change.

As long as the pressure goes up when you give it gas, it is fine.

Wont start, gets fire and i replaced the feul pump, still wont start


Check the fuel pressure regulator. See if you can borrow a scan tool from a local auto parts store to read any codes that may be present.

Was the fuel pump new or used?

You need at least 30 pounds of fuel pressure for the injectors to work properly.

Pressure switch goes on and off


Ckeck the air pressure in your pressure tank. If it spit out water your bladder is broke and you'll need to replace it. If no water shut your pump off ,drain your tank and set yuor tank pressure 2 pounds lower than your low pressure setting. so a 30/50 pressure switch your tank pressure should be 28 psi

Starts then quits


Try the ignition control module located under the distributor cap $30 - $60. This is one of two parts on this truck that will cause it to not run or shut down after running for only a short time. The other is the fuel pump I think it is safe to rule that out as your problem
