Re: [DML] Fuel Pump

Take an ohmeter and read the resistance across the two terminals on top of the pump.  Disconntect the leads before you do this.
If you read a small resistance (2-8 ohms), then the motor portion of the pump is fine.  If so, you need to pull the pump and see if you have a blockage.
If you read zero ohms or infinity, then the motor is kaput and you need a new one.

Hi All,
It's been a while since I've posted but still lurk. Anyway, my fuel pump seems to have died on
me while pulling out of my driveway today. I believe I've checked everything that I can that has to
do with the fuel system but I want to make sure before I break down and get another fuel pump.
1.I've replaced the RPM relay with a new one I had
2. Tried jumping the RPM and no sound or fuel ( I disconnected the line from the filter/distributor
to see if anything is coming out)
3. Checked the fuse 
4. Checked the inertia switch (have the updated one, made sure it wasn't out)

So far everything seems fine but not working still. Is there anything else I should do/check? 

any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance..... ......... .....Jason #5903
