No, I don't hear anything... but I don't ever recall hearing anything before when it was working properly.Do you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the ignition on(before the car starts the pump primes). On opels the fuel pump relay is ussally near the ecu in the drvers side foot well. I had a similar issue a while back on a corsa, turned out to be one of the water temp sensors gone bad....
yeah thats exactly where it is, its usually black in color, and if faulty sometimes might be swollen. My astra had the same issue, after closer inspection of the relay we notices some of the components on the board in the relay were not making proper contact, re soldiered them and that was that.Try the kick panel in the driver's side footwell.
That's where the Xhosa Lite's is.
Fuel pump relay location...... many years later.
Pick up the back seat. Remove the heat shield thingy and you should see a round plate with screws in it. That will be the access point to the fuel pump located in the fuel tank.Hey guys, I have one of these Opel Euro Estate 2.0i cars.
It's a 1995 model.
looks kinda like this....
I was driving in Krugersdorp last Thursday, and it died on me three times while driving.
It died almost like it had run out of fuel.
But I was able to restart it and made it home again all the way to Alberton without any hassles.
But then when I went to start it again, the starter turns, but it won't catch.
It just turns and turns, but there is no fuel going through.
I checked the fuse for the fuel pump and that is fine.
I checked the sparking and there is spark.
Does anybody know where the fuel pump is located on this car and how to get to it?
I suspect it must be at the back near the petrol tank, but I can't find it.
Also, is there a relay for the fuel pump? and where would that be.
I checked the two relays that are in the engine compartment, but it's not those two.
Yes, if by prime you mean the buzzing sound, I can hear it on my corsa B, it does the buzzing and the relay clicks then it stops.Hi all. I have an 97 opel kadet 180is ecotech 16v. This vehicle was standing for some tym but kept in almost brand new condition. However, after adding a new battery and fuel and fresh oil to it, we found that it needed new fuel pump. Tested fuel pressure to be 2.6bar. After a few weeks, vehicle began to take longer to start especially in the mornings. Diagnostic test showed crank sensor...., renewed along with coolant sensor. Problem still persists. My question is.....does the fuel pump prime upon putting the key on without starting?
