Answers :

You need to do a fuel pressure test... on the fuel rail of the engine there is a valve that looks like a valve stem for a bike tire. remove the cap install a pressure tester and turn over engine. if pressure comes up to 60 psi then pump is probably good. check fuses and check for spark...

Fuel Pump I don't know much about cars at all, but recently my fuel pump went bad on me and I found someone to replace it. Next thing I know he calls and says the entire exhaust system is rusted and can't replace my fuel pump. I was wanting to know, how true is this? Can I have my fuel pump replaced without my exhaust being there or will I have to get the exhaust system taken care of first before the pump is replaced?

What all do you need to do to convert a 1992 ford 5.0 out of an f150 from fuel injection to a Carb.? I know that you need a carb, intake, and fuel pump. I'm putting this motor in my 1984 mustang it had a carburated 302 that was junk, but can i use the distributor from that motor on the new one? I have a holley carb and edelbrock torker 2 intake, and i know i need an electric fuel pump on a switch, because of no oil pump hole in the block.

Fuel pump issue with 1993 dodge dakota. New fuel pump. Fuel lines unhooked at filter key on and crank. No action noted from fuel pump. Took fuel pump out of tank replugged to harness repeated turning on key and cranking, still no hint of pump running. Test the five wire plug that connects to pump. One of the five wires had power to it. The second wire in from o side. Also switched relay fuse to see if it had an impact. Not familiar with system. I know the relay clicks when ignition turns on but

So my 1995 Rodeo will sometimes not start. When I turn the key to the on position, the check engine light comes on and I can hear the fuel pump pumping, but every so often, the pump doesn't pump and the car wont start. The only way I know that the fuel pump has pumped is by the check engine light coming on. I was wondering if it would be best to just rewire the fuel pump or if it is the fuel pump itself.


First things first...Rewiring the fuel pump will only put a "Bandaid" on whatever the problem really is and will most likely create a situation where wires are draped across places where they shouldn't be, causing all kinds of future electrical probl ... 1995 Isuzu Rodeo

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

Had a diagnostic done and it read the code p0453 had a new fuel pump so the problem may involve the fuel pump if the evap is in the gas tank so i am trying to find out where the evap sensor is located is it in the fuel tank or is it in the engine somewhere. if its in the fuel tank i am covered for a year and can get it fixed cuz the shop apparently put it in wrong or something but if its in the engine i am screwed but need to know where the sensor is located so i know whether to bother fighting


The code discription is evaporative emission control system pressure sensor high. the sensor is located on the top side of the fuel tank. perhaps they did not connect it properly, kinked a hose or blocked the inlet port. ... Ford Expedition

I can't find the fuel pump fuse for my 95 SC2. I want to replace the fuel filter, and I'd like to release the pressure on the fuel line by pulling the fuel pump fuse and then running the engine until it's out of gas. The under hood fuse box on the 95 SC2 shows all kinds of fuse labels, but nothing really looks like "fuel pump". I thought I'd be able to find a diagram on the web but not such luck. Any one know where the fuel pump fuse is?

I have a 1990 Chevy Astro. The other day I got in it and it would not start. I sprayed starting fluid in the fuel injectors and I was able to get it home. I changed the fuel pump and the fuel does go to the fuel injection pumps. I know the pump is working cause I bypassed the relay and the pump does work and get fuel to the motor. What else can cause the fuel not to get in the motor.

My 95 Pontiac Bonneville is not getting gas I've checked the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay under the passenger side and replaced the fuel filter. Is there anything else that could cause the gas not to pump or should I take the gas tank off and inspect the gas pump? Also is there away to check if the gas pump is bad. All I know is that there is no pressure in the gas lines and that no fuel is getting to the injectors. Thanks in advance.


What you need to do is have an assistant turn the key on (not try to start, just turn the key on) while you have the gas cap removed and your ear down by the gas tank fill tube. When they turn the key on you should hear a whirl only for 3-7 seconds. ... 1995 Pontiac Bonneville
