Question Asked: fuel pump will not prime at all,used to hear for 2 seconds,now nothing.
February 27, 2015, 11:34 AM
started about a year ago, only just once in a while.last few months it got worse,if i cycled the switch from off to run a few times,pump would eventually prime and start and ran perfect until i turn off truck.checked fuel pump fuse,its good,new fuel pump relay,new pcm relay,new ignition switch(electrical part),new starter solenoid on firewall.i removed fuel pump relay and put a jumper from pin 30(hot all times)to pin 87.this gives constant power to inertia switch,dk grn/yellow,also gives constant power leaving switch(pnk/blk)to fuel pump.there are 4 wires on fuel pum plug.pnk/blk is power and blk is ground,i have 12.54vdc at these points.fuel pump still will not prime.the other 2 wires are for the sender(gas guage,it works.yel/wht,blk/org.this has beat me up.bed is off and i found sticker on top of fuel pump assembly,and the date says 07-24-2000 and thats when the truck was built.also changed fuel filter,thats when pump quit priming.it started up after filter changed but died 5 minutes later in driveway,and now pump will not prime at all.i know that the crank sensor has to see rpm before the engine starts,but i dont think it stops the fuel pump from priming.the pump is 15 years old.i think pump is gone,but not sure.anyone had this problem or know anything i missed,please help.

You never will forget it,never! no telling what burnt up..just don't know how that can happen. test every fuse on the car that you can find with a test light,ALL of them on both sides with the key on.fuse locations and positions are listed in your owners manual,with pictures and numbers...

lets do this Tedhemet,take pushrods advice please..he has been working on vehicles for a few years now and still is,and he knows what he is doing,and i hope i don't have to get long winded again about Firestone Complete Auto Care! they will tell you a bald face lie in a skinny minute,believe me.i have tested them more than once,they failed!(i think Trump trained em)cause every time their mouth opens,it's a lie!..go to Firestone when the tires are on sale,then talk em down another few hundred! i just did that and i love my Bridgestones! Oh,and that few years i said about pushrod would be about 44 years and still doing it!!! good luck...
Question Answered: The Code I get Is PO-440 : Where do I find the Leak Detection Pump to Ck. ?
August 25, 2016, 12:23 PM
copy and paste link below,also,if you can't find the leak,suggest smoke test to be done.once corrected,you will most likely need to drive it(drive cycle)before the evap monitor will set to READY..50-150 miles once the light goes off.

Question Answered: How do you check the transmission fluid
August 25, 2016, 12:18 PM
Get the car on ramps or a lift (level) and look for the fill level plug (torx head-same size as drain plug) screw on the driver's side towards the front where the sump tapers in. Undo and watch it drip out or not. if it runs out of the plug hole,then it's full,if not,fill until it does run out with the correct fluid type..this is in your owners manual..
