Fuel issues 88' 2.9l dual tanks
Hey everyone, I've been lurking these forums looking for some answers, but I'm having difficulty with a few things, so I thought I create a post about it.
I was having issues with fuel delivery for a while, it was intermittent, just cutting out here and there. The fuel filter has been replaced.
After looking through these forums, I decided to test the inertia switch. The button on top was up slightly, it can go down further but won't stay down...if I move it up it doesn't stay up either. So I jumped the connection and put a test light on it.
When I turn the key on, there are no pulses or anything, can't hear the fuel pumps turning on at all. But if I try to turn it over, the light comes on, so at that point there is power going through at least that point.
It turns over, and runs for about a second then dies. I was just seeing if anyone had any info about what could be causing it to not send the pulses to prime the pump when I turn the key on. But still send power when I turn the engine over
EDIT: Also it was doing this with both tanks
Edit: Jumped the relay, the light where I jumped the inertia switch was on the whole time it was jumped, didn't hear any fuel pumps running got down and couldn't feel anything either, so bad pump?
