How To Diagnose A Fuel Pump Failure - EricTheCarGuy
I had the privilege of visiting Airtex, and while I was there I spoke with
Shane Neuman about diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. In this video we go over
the basic steps of diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. So if your vehicle isn't
starting and you suspect a fuel pump problem, here are some steps to follow
to confirm your suspicions. Another 'quick' test is to bang on the fuel
tank and then try and start the engine. Sometimes this works, just don't
bang too hard, you could damage something.

GMC / SILVERADO pickup quick fuel pump fix.
After dropping the tank twice to replace my fuel pump (which is a bitch of

GMC and CHEVY truck easy fuel pump fix - make a hatch
I was on my way to the dump one day and my fuel pump went out.
Frustrating... This is my aircraft mechanic way of fixing my fuel pump.
Airplanes have lots of hatches. You don't have to take the wings off an
airplane to get to the fuel pump.
Some people don't like the idea of cutting a small square in their bed and
that's ok. But I see people modifying their trucks all the time for purely
cosmetic reasons and some of those mods actually make their trucks less
useful so I don't think a purely practical modification is out of line.
On these GM trucks you can scoot the bed back or drop the tank to get to
the fuel pump. Or just make a hatch. Rivet on some tabs and put the piece
you sawed out back on with some sealant. If you have a bed liner nobody
will know but you. Shoot, chrome the hatch and be proud of it.
Now if your $60 ebay fuel pump goes out again it's a 15 minute fix instead
of a 4 hour dirty tank drop. And no need for the $400 OEM pump because
you're scared to go through the hassle of dropping the tank again.
When I took the pump out it was actually just the flex hose that takes the
fuel from the pump to the top of the tank that had cracked. But that OEM
pump was always very noisy so I chucked it and went with the cheapest pump
on ebay which is still going strong after a couple years and is completely

1991 Chevy C/K 1500 Silverado Pickup Truck
This is my 1991 Chevy 1500 Full Size 1/2 Ton 2 wheel drive truck. I just
bought this truck from a transport company, it was one of their old
maintenance trucks. It is currently not running, possible bad fuel pump.
It has very little rust but has body damage, especially the left rear
corner, and the driver's seat is worn. It's going to take some work to get
it on the road.
UPDATE... This truck has been fixed. The fuel pump and all the rubbers
with the fuel pump has been replaced, new seat installed, new headlight
switch installed, brake/tail lights fixed, runs good now and is now my
daily driver. New video coming soon!

4.3 V6 CPI Fuel Pressure Test
This is the procedure for checking for an internal fuel leak on your 1st
gen GM 4.3V6 with the CPI engine in it. This is my 93 Blazer in the test.
Fuel Pressure should be 58-62 psi, and it should hold that pressure, and
hold it when turned off as well. I have a leak inside my upper intake as I
show you in the video. My engine sputters, and puffs out black smoke and
drips raw fuel out the Exhaust pipe
when running. My Exhaust stinks as
well like rotten eggs.
