No, it means it is running. It may or may not be pumping gasoline with the proper pressure. Fuel pressure test will verify if it is working properly.

Why would a 91 grand am stall out after filling the tank and not restart even though the fuel pump is working?

how was it determened that the pump was working? just because you hear the pump working does not mean its working. it needs to be presure tested to find out if it has the right amount of presure. this is not uncommen for a fuel pump to be damged after running the tank low or out of gas,and even after a fill up.


Why do you not have fuel reaching fuel filter even though you can hear fuel pump when you turn key on?

Just because you hear the pump running does not mean it is actually pumping fuel. Run a fuel pressure test to see if the pump is defective.

How do you check if fuel pump is working in vt commodore?

Open the fuel filler door and remove the gas cap. Listen at the fuel filler opening while a helper turns the ignition on but does not start the engine. The pump will run for a few seconds and then shut off. If you do not hear the pump check the fuel pump fuse and the fuel pump relay. If they are good then the pump is more than likely defective. If you hear the pump then you know it is running but that does not mean it is pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify the condition of the pump. Be sure and replace the fuel filter.



How do you tell if the fuel pump is working on a Chrysler pt cruiser?

Have a helper turn on the ignition switch without starting the engine, while you listen at the fuel filler door with the door open cap off. The fuel pump will run for a few seconds and then shut down. If you hear nothing then the pump is bad or the fuse is blown or fuel pump relay is defective. Even if you hear the pump that does not mean it is actually pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test is the only way to know for sure if the pump is actually pumping fuel with the correct pressure. First thing to do is replace the fuel filter if the pump is running and the car will not start.

When Ford F-250 5.0 engine turns over no fuel is getting to engine all 3 fuel pumps are working?

Just because you hear the pumps hum does not mean they are working. Also, where is the third pump? There should only be two, one in each tank. I am not aware of an F250 with a high pressure frame rail pump, how old is the truck? Have you pulled the fuel filter and checked for restriction? What happens when you pull the line off and turn the key on? Does fuel come out? When you say no fuel is getting to the engine, do you mean you have no fuel pressure, or the injectors aren't spraying anything? Could it be that fuel is getting to the fuel rail but the injectors are not firing? Could it be that you are getting some fuel pressure, but not enough fuel pressure? What if your fuel guage is wrong, and you have two empty fuel tanks? These are questions you need to answer to eliminate things down to your cause.


Is there a way to check to see if a fuel pump is bad if fuel pump is in the tank?

You can have someone turn the ignition key to the on position without starting the engine while you listen at the fuel filler door with the cap off. You should hear the pump come on and run for a few seconds then shut off. If you hear nothing check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay. If both are good the pump is defective. If you hear the pump run that does not necessarily mean it is actually pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test at the fuel rail well verify the condition of the pump.



Why a Mazda MPV doesn't work anymore after remove the fuel pump and clean it?

First off if you went to the trouble to remove the fuel pump you should have just replaced it with a new one. Hopefully you replaced the fuel filter. If not install a new one. You cannot clean a fuel filter. You need to make sure the fuel pump is actually working. Have someone open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap and listen at that location. Turn the ignition key on but do not start the vehicle. You should hear the pump run for a few seconds and then shut down. If you do not, check the fuse and fuel pump relay. If you do hear it run that does not necessarily mean it is actually pumping fuel. The only way to know for sure is to run a fuel pressure test at the fuel rail. You will need a fuel pressure gauge in order to verify this. If you do not hear the fuel pump run then either the fuse is blown, relay is defective, or the wiring to the pump is either loose, corroded, or disconnected. Any decent mechanic can solve this problem.


Can fuel pump be working and stop car from starting from car running out of gas?

you mean your fuel pump was working until you ran out of gas and now it doesn't work? yes, if you have an electric in-tank fuel pump, you need a new one. fuel pumps in the tank require lubrication to prevent them from overheating, and the fuel in your tank keeps the fuel pump "wet". when you run out of gas, you run it "dry" and will destroy the fuel pump.


Why would the fuel not be reaching the engine if the fuel pump is working?

Clogged fuel filter, or bent fuel line. BTW, just because the fuel pump is running does not mean it is actually pumping fuel. It may be doing nothing but running in which case you need to replace it. A fuel pressure test will verify this.


How do you tell if your fuel pump is bad on your 2004 Pontiac grandam gt?

You first need to see if the fuel pump is actually running. In order to do this you will need a helper. Open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have your helper turn the ignition on without starting the engine while you listen at the fuel filler door. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds then shut down. If you hear the pump running this tells you the fuse and relay are good. If the pump does not run check the fuse for the pump and fuel pump relay. Even if you hear the fuel pump running this does not mean is actually pumping fuel. The only way to test this is to perform a fuel pump pressure test at the fuel rail. Make sure to replace the fuel filter in either case.

How do you know when a fuel pump on a Cadillac deville is gone bad?

Open the fuel filler door and remove the gas cap. Listen at the fuel filler opening while a helper turns the ignition on but does not start the engine. The pump will run for a few seconds and then shut off. If you do not hear the pump check the fuel pump fuse and the fuel pump relay. If they are good then the pump is more than likely defective. If you hear the pump then you know it is running but that does not mean it is pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify the condition of the pump. Be sure and replace the fuel filter.



How do you know if the fuel pump on your 96 ford windstar is out?

Get a helper to help you with this. Have your helper sit in the driver's seat while you open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have your helper turn on the ignition, without starting the engine, while you listen at the fuel filler nozzle. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then shut down. If you hear nothing then either the fuel pump fuse, pump relay, or the pump itself is defective. If you hear the pump running this does not necessarily mean that it is pumping fuel. It can be defective and still run. The only way to know for sure is to run a fuel pressure test with a fuel pressure gauge at the fuel rail on the engine. Also make sure to replace the fuel filter just in case it is clogged.

How do you test 2004 dodge stratus fuel pump?

You will need a helper. Have your helper sit at the steering wheel while you listen at the fuel filler door with the fuel cap off. Have a helper turn on the ignition without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then shut off. If you do not hear it run either the fuel pump is the defective or the fuel pump fuse is blown or the relay is the defective. Check the fuse in the relay first. If they are good the fuel pump needs replacing. If you hear the pump run then you know the fuse and relay are good. But this does not necessarily mean the pump is actually pumping fuel. In order to determine if the pump is actually pumping fuel you will need to run a fuel pump pressure test at the fuel rail. What ever you do make sure your replace the fuel pump filter if it is replaceable.


Kia Sportage 2000 cant start fuel system working but no ignition and pulse?

do you mean fuel system working but no fire or do you mean have fire but no fuel pressure to crank vehicle. All Kia sportages have a fuel pump relay and main engine relay.

Purchase at Kia $16.00 ea X 2.



What reason would a Mercedes Benz only crank when you put gas in carborator?

Do you mean the starter will only turn if you put gas in the carb? Or do you mean that it will only RUN when you dump gas in the carb? If the latter is the case, your fuel tank is empty, your fuel pump is not working, or there is a clog in the fuel line.
