Asked by Dec 07, 2014 at 04:59 PM about the 1987 Chevrolet Astro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car will not start, I do not hear the fuel pump turn on and I think I need a new fuel pump in my 1987 astro but im not sure how to check if it is the relay or the pump

1 Answer


Good way would be to test the fuel pressure. A lot of vacuum gauges also have fuel pressure gauge built into them. Lot of videos about fuel pressure testing.... have fuel pressure, fuel pump is good. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peh7-pFycyc
