1998 3L V6 Fuel Pump Shot?
My old beast has finally took a dive on me!
She is a 1998 3L V6 standard transmission with about 180,000 Km's on her original.
Had her running out yesterday all over town with my young daughter riding shotgun just fine as always. Tried to start her up yesterday evening and she will crank but wont turn over.
Battery is holding a charge at 12.5 (dropping with multiple start attempts now)
Here's what I have checked so far:
Fuel Pump Relay - good has continuity and in fine shape, even took relay cover off to inspect the coil etc
Starter relay - good has continuity same as above.
Power Control Module Relay - Same as above.
Fuel Inertia Switch - button is pushed down completing power to the pump.
Tried the ignition from off to on and wait 3 seconds a couple times then try, won't turn start.
Checked all fuses including number 24 inside the cab. All fuses in cab and distribution box are good.
I had the wife turn the ignition from off to on while I had my ear right up to the gas tank. Can not hear any buzzing, humming or whirring from the pump in the tank!
I did notice a sharp drop in mileage as well in the last few days just before this happened.
The only logical explanation for this in my eyes is the pump is dead. Is there anything else I can check to verify this before I go full retard and order the pump assembly and a new fuel filter while I'm at?
Boy oh boy, this is going to be a cold, dirty, sh***y one out in the open in my driveway....
Any tips guidance or insight into what else it could be before I start preparing for a pump replacement would be appreciated.
