If the fuel pump is about to die, what symptoms does the pump have please?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: First I replaced the 2 knock sensors
and the water pump
. Then the van ran very good for about 10 miles, the it died on the street. I had it towed home. I suspected that something is wrong with the fuel pump, so I disconnected the fuel line, and turned on the key (not started yet), all lights came up and it pumped a little gas then stopped pumping, then I turned the ignition for about 10 seconds, the fuel did not come out, then I turned off the key, then turned on the key, some gas came out then stopped, then I turned the ignition then a lot of gas came out then I connected the fuel line and started the engine
then it worked (I did start the engine before disconnecting the fuel line, but it did not start). Is this the symptom that the fuel pump is about to die please?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes, I am doing this myself
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I would like to know that is the fuel pump is about to die, if it is, then I will replace the fuel pump. Or is the problem on the fuel filter?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?
Customer: I think that is all
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
