Fuel pumps may be running but you need to check fuel pressure at reed valve on fuel rail to see if you have enough to fire the injectors , you need at least 50psi

My 2003 Galant isn't getting fuel to the engine. I replaced the pump yet I'm still getting no fuel. The fuel gauge is still reading a quarter tank of fuel. I check all my fuzes and all are working. So, now I suspect the fuel pump relay that my manual talks about but doesn't show me where the relay is located. First, I would like to know which relay controls the fuel pump. If that doesn't work what else would cause the vehicle not to pump fuel to the engine?


The fuel pump relay is under the hood on the driver side. There is a black box that will have a wing nut that takes the cover off. The cover will have a diagram of which one the fuel pump relay is. ... 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

U can see that the fuel pump is working but the car will not start. We have changed the fuel filter an there is gas getting to the carborator but very little. If u put gas directly into the carborator it will start then die out. Someone said it could be the fuel pump presure relay. Do u think it could be that if so were is it located on the 1984 fleetwood 4.1 liter?


If you can loosen the fuel line where it connects to the carburetor, do that while cranking the engine to see iof there is pressure at the carburetor. If yes, next take the cover off of the carburetor to see if fuel is flowing into the float bowl. ... Cadillac Fleetwood

Did you check the fuel pressure? there is a sharder valve on the fuel rail to do this. i know you have to have a certain amount of pressure in order for it to run.i think on fuel injection its around 60 to 70 psi.and on throtle body is around 30 to50 ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Iam getting no voltage tto my fuel pump,front tank doesn't work,I changed the ignition switch,still no luck. the continuos power to my fuel pump reads 6.5 volts. From what I can tell my electrical sytem runs like this,my power control module relay from the relay it goes to the fuel pump relay then to the Inertia shutoff switch, to the Front and rear tank selector switch, to the back tank. Like I mentioned before I am only getting 6.5 volts at the fuel pump.


Poor earth connection most likely causing hifgh resistance voltage drop. \015\012\015\012Could also be a faulty pump. Run a separate power supply to it and recheck. ... 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab

1998 VW Beetle will not start. It started doing this a couple months ago but would eventually start. Now it will not start at all. Fuel relay is working and you can hear the fuel pump turn on. You can hear a sound on the fuel rail like it is getting pressure. When I remove the spark plug and put a plug in the wire and ground it while someone cranks there is no spark at all. Also, when I crank and crank and crank there is no gas smell in the exhaust. The anti-thief light is not coming on like som

Where is the fuel relay for a 1993 volvo 850 glt located? Ran out of gas a few weeks back, car wouldn't start a week after that. Replaced distributor cap and plugs, went to change fuel pump but it seems to be working fine (after taking it out and trying to put another one in, found that it works when hooked up to the battery.) Is it the pump relay? The injector relay? Where are those located? Could it be something else entirely? Car is 60 miles from home in a parking lot with the gas tank ta

Where is the fuel pump located in a 1997 Lexus LS400? The car started, then started to run rough and acted like it ran out of gas. Now the car will not run it acts like its not getting any fuel. It has been ran out of gas several times so i think it might be the fuel pump, as from what ive heard the fuel filter on these do not get clogged often.

Car will not start. car will run for a moment or two if I pour gas in the fuel injection manifold. The fuel gauge is pegged to overfull. all other gauges seem to work fine. Fuel gauge remains pegged even with the fuel pump electric wires disconnected. I believe it is a bad fuel pump relay or the the low oil pressure sensor switch is disabling the fuel pump relay. However I cannot locate the fuel pump relay?


The oil pressure sending unit will be the problem for that primes the pum when you turn the key to the on position. You will hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds when doing that. If the pump is running when you have the key turned to the ON posit ... 1992 Buick Roadmaster

I left the dome light on over the weekend in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee limited, so I had to charge the battery, but now it wont start, seems like its not getting any gas, then I noticed the fuel gauge wasnt working, I checked fues and someone mentioned to me I may have to reset the fuel pump relay. I looked at the fuse box on the firewall and didnt see any switch to reset, does anyone have any suggestions to what the problem might be? Thank you.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1988 dodge dakota w/ a 3.9 , can I check the hot wire to the fuel pump to see if the relay works before I go to buying parts? Not a refund on electrical parts, and the truck has 200k mi so im not wanting to spend a ton on it.Wont crank unless I put a little gas in the throttle body, then just dies after a few sec. Fuel filter was replaced 3 mo ago. Like to know whether it was the fuel pump or relay before I go throwing parts at it. Thank you


The relay for the fuel pump is under the hood but most likely the fuel pump itself. One way to check is use a test light at the tank it should have three wires one is sending unit one is ground and third is hot turn the key and check for power or if ... 1988 Dodge Dakota

My 96 dodge neon randomly died on my while i was going down a 55 mph road. I replaced the fuel pump on it because i was told that was what was wrong with it. I located the fuel pressure gauge under the hood. Or at least thats what i think it is. I was told to unscrew the cap (it looks like where you put air into the tires) and push in the little knob inside it and gas should shoot out. gas just dripped out. It sounds like the fuel pump is working when i turn the key but dont start it. but my car


What you've found is the fuel pressure test port, not a gauge. It is the point to which you would attach a gauge to determine cranking fuel pump pressure.About all I can say at this point is that you probably don't have enough fuel press ... Dodge Neon

Where is the fuel pump fuse and fuel filter on the 2005 corolla? I need to know where the relay is to the fuel pump to rule this out.

I have an 86 ford bronco with the 302 and electronic fuel injection. My problem is I think the fuel pump relay has gone bad. I have to turn the key on and off and listen for the fuel pump to kick in and as soon as you can hear it kick in it starts fine but if you touch the gas at all it dies, if I do get it to idle and I even so much as close the hood down it dies. The problem is is I don't know where the fuel pump relay is located. Any ideas anyone?

Midas told me my fuel pump went out (at47,000miles) when I got my trans flushed..I was unsure what was going on & towed it home. My son & friend tested the fuel pump-it worked so they "hard wired" fuel pump. I think this is what they said. But I do know it is wires under back seat of '07 Dodge Calliber on top of gas tank or something like a bowl of gas. I am a wee bit scared of blowing up & can't get it inspected. Worst of all, I have no idea what was done & we are not on speaking terms right
