Customer Question
The fuel pump relay...

The fuel pump relay is sticking open

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

It is a 1993 Dutchman motorhome with about 60k miles

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '93 Ford?

E350 Econoline

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Normally if I short out fuel pump connector it will close the relay contacts and then it will start

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I know the relay probably should be replaced, but I don't know which one it is.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
