Having problems with your 1995 GMC Suburban ?

95 GMC pick up usually runs good, but the last 2 days it will die and seems to take more cranking to start it. I'm guessing fuel pump, but not sure. If it is the fuel pump is it in the tank? what is involved?

My fuel pump started to leak on the way to work one day and after setting all day, I started up and pull owt to leave and it died and would not start. I have change the fuel pump, still no gas will pmp up though the pump. I think it maybe the fuel lline or not sure if there maybe a pump in the tank. So should I drop the tank to see if it have a pump? Did not think that you would need a pump in tank if you have a fuel pump on the block (crank case).

Have a 1991 Chevy Cavalier Z-24 with a 3.1 V-6 engine. Car was running fine one night and then would not start later that evening. Turned out the battery was dead. We bought a new battery and now it will crank like crazy but will not turn over. Guesses include a fuel pump or a fuel line problem. How can I be sure? Does the 1991 Z have just one fuel pump near the gas tank or is there a secondary one under the hood as well? Any other ideas as to what the issue may be?

1996 Jeep Grand Cheroke Laredo...Ran tank low on fuel. Then after filling up would not start, while at the pump. So changed fuel filter...no start. Then changed fuel pump. Now does start and run yea! However does not start like it used to. Would fire right up on first crank now takes two cranks? Also gas gauge does not register fuel. I put in a MU198 pump. p.s. 4.0 L6


Likely you did a bad thing to the tank float when working on it If so, it will need to be taken down (again) and checked. First though check that the gauge is getting power at the attachment harness (pump and power side should have a voltage pulse an ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

There is no fire going to the in-tank fuel pump. The Isuzu was left sitting over nite and the next when the driver went to go somewhere, the vehicle would crank but not start, after some testing, we determined that the trouble was the in tank fuel pump. So we dropped the tank and replaced the pump. the pump works fine from previous testing .But there is no current getting to it. Both the Fuel-pump Relay and the Fuse are good. I believe the trouble is in the ECM but, a local garage mechanic disag

1987 4Runner 2 Problems, both stemmed from dropping the fuel tank to replace a rusty brake line. After replacing the rusty brake lines and the rusty fuel line I have not been able to get brkae pedal back, I have also noticed that I now have to crank a long long time to start. I checked the fuel pump connection at the tank and also checked for power at the lead with the truck on and have no power at the fuel pump lead. Checked fuses, where else should I look? Yes, the truck will start and run aft

1996 Nissan Altima crank-no start. Didn't hear the fuel pump, changed it. Still don't hear the fuel pump, still crank-no start. Float in gas tank has power, gauge reads correct. Is the relay for the float and the pump? Would the pump have power if the coils or timing belt weren't functioning? Haven't done the tailpipe trick yet, will do next...Thx


There is a disconnect for the fuel line in the engine compartment. Disconnect it at the motor and cycle the key. This will determine if your fuel pump is running. If it is not which I would assume it isnt then check the relay. If the relay is not cli ... 1996 Nissan Altima

I have 1991 Chevy S-10 Blazer, 4.3L with about 174,000 miles. It had been starting with no problem then one day when I went to start it, it won't start. Cranks over good, then found out that no fuel was coming up to the throttle body. Thought the fuel filter might be clogged, but nope. I had removed the tank and removed the pump and all. Hooked up the pump with fuel in a bucket to see if it would pump, I might get a drop or 2 or fuel. Now I am being told that either the oil pressure switch or fu


If you had the pump working, it should pump about a cup [ 8 oz. ] or more in 15 seconds. sounds like the pump is bad or the inlet screen is clogged. the pressure for this system should be at least 13 PSI. I wouldn't test it in a bucket of fuel as ... 1991 Chevrolet S-10

Going down the hiway way and my 1994 olds delta 88 royale just died. Car cranks but does not start. I check the fuel pump fuse and relay both seem to be fine. I have power to the fuse and power to the relay. I took the fuel line apart at the fuel filter and turn on the key and no fuel comes out of the line I cranked the engine and still no fuel. So I took the gas tank off the car and took the fuel pump out I hooked the fuel pump up to a battery directly and it works really well one direction and

It cranks but wont start. Checked for spark with the lead plug wire from the coil to the distributor cap. No spark. I changed the coil still no spark. I've been told its my fuel pump. But I've tested it by squirting gas myself through the fuel injection chamber. Still wont start. So I don't think its fuel pump. Maybe something to cause it to spark may be the cause? Also I filled the gas tank with more gas and it seems the ain't workin, I had a quarter tank and added but it didn't rise at all. I


If you are sure there is no spark and you have replaced the coil,then the only other thing it could be is your spark control moduel.it works off your computer to tell your plugs when to fire..somettimes they go out only when they heat up and will st ... 1988 Honda Prelude

1988 Chevy Cavalier 2.0L engine starts, runs for less then a minute (while pumping the gas peddle), then dies. then have to let set for 10-15 minutes then repeats as before. if you try to start before this time it just cranks and won't start, looks like something is stopping the fuel (gas) at the injector. can see fuel spraying from the injector for less then a minute then stops. have replaced the fuel regulator diaphragm, fuel injector, fuel filter, the in tank fuel pump & strainer, throttle po

I have a 2001 Bravada. The vehicle will crank and turn over but it wont start. I have replaced the cam shaft sensor and the fuel pump relay and the rotor bug. I dont think it is the fuel pump because i can get it started by pour some berrymans in the air intake on top of the engine. I was wondering if there is a check valve on the fuel line that is allowing the fuel to seem back to the tank?????? Im dying here and refuse to buy a fuel pump because i dont think its the problem.


Ok... Wait we have to settle some things here. You can get the vehicle started by pouring fuel down the throttle body, if so then it is most definatley a fuel pump problem. I usually try to bang on the tank with a rubber malle while cranking the engi ... 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada

I have an 89 f 250 with dual tanks. Front tank has never worked since I bought it. Recently the truck started stalling out ( No fuel to the injectors) I replaced the fuel pump relay. Nothing. I pulled the rear pump and before installing the new one pluged it in outside the tank and Turned on the ignition power. The new pump didnt run. So, I am guessing no power to the rear pump? Where do I look next?

My 1990 dodge caravan wouldnt start when I returned to it. It sarted to and now it just cranks over. I get spark and I primed the throttle body and got it to fire. I checked for fuel delivery by removing the hose from the fuel filter facing the gas tank and cranked it over. No flow. Could there be something blocking the flow inside the tank and if I blow air through the fuel line back into the tank will it damage the fuel pump diaphram. Also is there another fuse besides the ASR that could aff

Guess I entered my problem in the wrong forum, I need a fuel pump relay diagram for a 1990 740 GL. I live on a dirt rd, the main pump/ filter bracket filled up with mud and fried both pumps. Guess the in-tank pump was weak. I am converting to an in-tank high pressure pump (regina style) also relocating the filter ti the engine bay. I cannot get the pump to come on when the switch is first turned on (prime) works good when engine is cranking.
