Answers :

Don't buy carter pumps for sure, I know champion makes a damn good pump, but you might want to do some research for yourself. remember you get what you pay for and just replacing the fuel pump is a pain in the @$$ so spending alittle extra for a quality pump is worth not having to change it again

I ran out of gas on my chevy silverado 1500 v6 and tried to restart it, and burned out my fuel pump. I replaced my fuel pump but it still won't start. I tested it, and gas is getting up to the point where it would be distributed to my injectors, but gas is not being injected on to my spark plugs. I also borrowed a scanner and when I plugged it in to the computer it said a bad ignition module. Could that be the problem? It keeps rotating but won't start.


I doubt running out of gas burned up the pump. A scanner doesnt say anything, it puts out a trouble code, what is the code. do you have spark at the spark plugs? if not check the Crankshaft position sensor. What is the fuel pressure? ... 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I have a 2000 chevy truck with a 350 vortec, the truck would not run and I could not hear the fuel pump kick on so I replaced it. started just fine, backed it out of the shop and the pump burned out within ten min. now this is the third pump and the same thing as happend....so am I missing something or do I keep getting bad pumps?

1993 Buick Roadmaster keeps on blowing fuel pump/ecm in-line 20 amp fuse. Car stalled out in a parking lot, would not start, no fuel. Changed fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay. Found fuel pump/ecm in-line 20A fuse keeps on blowing when I turn key on. Looked all over for shorts, disconnected oil pressure/ fuel pump cutoff switch, changed fuel pump relay, fuel pump is disconnected at tank at present, still blows fuse. Please help as I cannot afford to take car to shop and presently working


You said the fuel pump is disconnected at present and the fuse still blows so I am thinking you have a dead ground in the fuel circuit maybe a wire is pinched after the fuse and before the pump. Check along the frame for this and make sure all of you ... Cars & Trucks

I HAVE A 1998 CHEVEROLET S-10 IT HAS RUN VERY WELL THEN ONE DAY IT STARTED SMELLING LIKE IT WAS FLOODING, BURNING REAL RICH THEN WHEN I WOULD STOP AT RED LIGHTOR A STOP SIGN IT WANT TO DIE OUT IF I DON'T KEEP MY FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL, AS LONG AS I'M TRAVELING IT'S FINE. COULD THIS BE THE FUEL REGULATOR? I CHECKED THE FUEL PUMP IT'S FINE.


Sounds like your egr is stuck open causing a large vacuum leak, this in turn causes the engine to run rich and want to die at stops. Look on the intake manifold for the valve. what im not sure of is what type of egr you have. you will either have a v ... 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

I'm assuming the filter was replaced also and the fuel pump is actually powering up. Have you tried to pull a trouble code??? This is done by turning the key to on (not start), then off, then on, then off, then on and leave it on and count the blinks ... 1995 Jeep Wrangler

2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies. Had fuel pump, fuel pump relay and fuel filter replaced at shop but the thing will still not run properly. You have to keep your foot on gas to keep it from dying so the idle has to be above 1500 rpms to stay running. If you let foot off gas it dies. So you have to keep foot on gas pedal and one on brake to drive it. Someone help me I am about to run the thing off a bridge

Van quit while driving down driveway. Found not getting fuel, zero fuel pressure at the fuel pressure tap under the hood and no fuel pump "hum"...not even for 2 seconds.

Engine light was on and van was running rough. The local repair center says that it needs a new fuel pump (2 of 6 sensors are receiving low fuel pressure ratings). I keep getting different answers on what this involves. I thought it would just be a fuel pump and a filter, but now I'm hearing there are 3 pieces to the fuel pump system - pump, motor, filter. Want to replace this myself, but I don't want to have to repair it twice. What exactly do I need to replace the "fuel pump"??


First check the pressure at the fuel rail at the top of the engine with a fuel pressure gauge these ar fairly expensive for what they are about a 100$ so if you can borrow one it would be great. doing this ensures you truly have low fuel pressure in ... 2004 Ford Freestar
