Where did you get the pump? DO you have a fuel pressure gauge?
I would start with a pressure test. Off brand pumps often do not perform to manufacturers specs and many shops will not install them as they are more trouble than they are worth.
which engine do you have?
It will be easiest to check under hood at fuel rail. It may have a test port depending on engine. You are looking for a minimum of 58PSI
Does not look like it has a test port. Will still be easiest at engine or by removing filter. 59 PSI should be minimum. Also after key is turned off the pressure should hold steady and not drop below 35PSI for 30 minutes
It may be the info is not real clear on that
OK. The place to access is under the hood. the filter is in tank on this one. You will need a T for the pressure tester. remove the line and put T in place.
OK. Just wanted to make sure you had the right stuff
I will be available until about 4pm eastern
Let me know what you find.
Yes the 3 seconds is the relay working. No worries. Check for a ground at the connector for the pump. Otherwise it is probably a bad pump.
My advice would be an OEM pump. You may get real good at this job.
yes there is. The last aftermarket pump in a chrysler got an OEM pump after 11 aftermarket pumps. never again. but that is me
I understand your logic. I am just advising.
Dont forget to leave a rating. We can continue if you need additional assistance.
I do a lot of them. I just will not use aftermarket on many brands. Unless customer pays labor every time. What brand pump did you get?
