Chevrolet S10 The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

(42 reports)

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Replaced it and fuel filter -
constant problem with truck. every summer when the weather got warm,the truck would have problems starting.it would crank but not start.sometimes it would happen when the engine was cold and sometimes when it was warm.if i waited 15 to 20 minutes after cranking it,she would start right up.then the problem started to last longer(it wouldnt start till the next day) no check engine lights. if i replaced the fuel filter the problem would go away for about a month. i took out the tank and cleaned it and replaced the fuel pump. i happend about 4 more times and then mysteriously went away. -
gas tank ran empty and pump was worn enough to break from extra wear of running tank so low i was told. part cost 900.00 plus another 100 trying to diagnois such as replacement fuel filter, and fuel relay switch etc. couldnt afford mechanic did it myself. Not to hard to do even at novice level. -

Truck began not starting fairly frequently but would crank up. Battery and alternator were replaced and it has solved the problem. -
sporatic sputtering, lack of power, happens mostly after the engine is warm. Diagnosed initially as short in the wire to the fuel pump. 2-1/2 days of diagnosis, and finally, the fuel pump filter unit needs to be replaced $1000. The unit itself is the expensive part and the mechanic is only charging me for 1 hour of diagnosis time. -
