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 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

GM Troubleshooting Part 5 - Fuel System including filter, pump, injector, regulator
This is part 5 of a multi part video series about how to troubleshoot any
ignition, fuel injection or timing issue. I describe the fuel system and
what I did to test it. specs referenced in the video: fuel pressure (in
PSI): TBI (9-13), MFI (41-47), CMFI (58-64), CSEFI (55-61). Those
pressures are for key on, not running. When running normal range is
3-10psi less for all injection systems. Injector resistance (in ohms): TBI
1.16-1.36, MFI (11.6-12.4), CMFI (1.37-1.77). In the video I forgot to
mention it is fairly difficult to bend the spider legs of the new injector
unit so they fit in the intake holes. Pay attention to the way the
original was installed (legs going over/under the nut kit lines) and try to
replicate the original routing. Oh... and I forgot to mention that if you
have a fuel lean condition, spray quick start in the throttle body and see
if it starts... if it runs on quick start, you have proven your condition
is a lack of fuel.
UPDATE Dec 8_2011: I still have the 2 moulded fuel injector lines (new
never used) and I want to sell them... if you need these lines send me a
private message and we can work out a deal. Thanks.
