    its the fuel pump i hooked up to the relay right before the pump and turned it on with a test light hooked up to it and it came on for 2 seconds and went off as if it were priming the pump. when i dropped the tank finally i took out the sending unit and pump and hooked it up to the relay and turned it on and it popped my fuse put in another my dad watched the relay and said it started smoking like a short in the pump so i think its the pump wat u guys think? and yes it is electric.

    This happened to me last night!
    About 1 am ran outta gas and coasted into a gas station.. after i put $30 in, the truck still wouldn't start.. and i tried for a few minutes. :crazy:
    I was just about to give up and start walking home, and figure i'd be changing an electric fuel pump this morning at the gas station...
    Then i figured what the hell and pushed on the shrader valve to see how much gas would come squirting out... well only a little came out and then a bunch of air..
    BAM. It primed the fuel pump again. problem solved.
    I thought even if i run out of gas and then fill it up, the electric fuel pump should just start pumping again. Wrong. I guess after the fuel pump sucks air it can't get a prime going again.. well maybe unless you let it sit for a few hours. :wink1:
