|raycer||I thought of something. If it were a bad ground at the tank, would the hammering the tank to get the pump going still work? that's how I got it started again|

|raycer||The ground you speak of is on the top of the sending unit right?|

|206dawgfan||Really!!!! Really!!!! Check the ground on the tank. It is super week and if your gas gauge does not work also it could be a bad ground.|

|raycer||Thanks for the fellas. The pump is a napa pump but I don't know who makes it for them. Thinking of getting a whole new sending unit and pump since my gas gauge hasn't worked in a long time either.|

|Timberwolf||was it an airtex brand pump?|

|raycer||Lol no offense taken. I do believe it is correct and it did work great for about 15 months.|

Not to be a jerk but did you put it back together correctly!
It is possible that it went bad in a year but I would not think so unless you did not put it back together correctly!
Bottom line is to be sure you will have to drop the tank
Look at it this way you have done it before!

Fuel pump woes
My jeep decided not to start for me in the walmart parking lot today. I couldn't hear the pump prime. I switched the pump relay with the one for the horn, since they both were the same, and nothing. I did notice though that the horn wouldn't work with the fuel relay at all.
Did the tapping the gas tank with a hammer trick and the jeep started right up and made it home. Now the pump is priming and everything.
Now last year I had a similar problem and I changed the fuel pump and all was well. What are the odds the pump went bad again or could the relays be the fault. I really don't want to drop the tank again lol
