and read how to troubleshoot the problem in the how to section. More parts maybe needed
2001 3.5 107k-296k Running with no cat now after original plugged and new one plugged after a year.high oil consumption is happening but no clouds of smoke. To be replaced in 2016! Personal quote " To each thier own erratic insyncrosee's"
I jumped the Hot and ground terminal on the relay located on the firewall and did not hear the pump turn on. The 50amp fuse is good too. Is this a bad pump?
Probably - you have the same year and model as I do. Before I installed the pump with the re-engineered snorkel, it ate two pumps. Just to make sure that you are jumping the right terminals, and that the fuse is really OK, get a multimeter, and make sure that you have 12V on the hot lead of the solenoid connector. Remember, you are jumping between pins on the connector, and not the relay itself. It would be a shame to conclude that the pump is bad, when it is one of the diverter valves (the next most probably cause).
I was jumping the connector with a wire. I checked for vaccum at both diverters and have nothing. I checked the solenoid under the engine sight cover too. One side has vaccum with the engine hot and running. The other side does not have vaccum. Im pretty sure the pump is bad...
