Question New guy here

Hey guys im new to the forum i just purchased and 2000 Bonnivlle SSEi. Im having some problems with it and want some of you experts knowlage. The car has been stalling out on me do to no fuel pressure and it had a new fuel pump put in june. Pump still works good out off car. New fuel filter last month. wondering if maybe it could be the strainer on the fuel pump and where would u find one ive checked all local parts stores and the net and cant seem to find the right one. The dealer wants 160 bucks for a new strainer kit so all of your help would be awesome THANKS MUCH!!bs2

Hi Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

The strainer is located on the fuel pump assembly inside the tank. Put a pressure gauge on the fuel system by the fuel rail at the schraeder valve. https://www.gmforum.com/t284304/

Also check the FPR https://www.gmforum.com/t284305/

:Welcome

Check the fuel pressure, if you see it drop, can you hear the fuel pump? Could be a bad relay.

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum Shane. Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

I Did some test on my car and the only thing that we can find is the pcm is wrecked. seems like its not sending signal to the fuel pump. The pump is good strainer checked out ok, connections on pump where good, relay and fuse are also good. right now i have the pump hooked up on a toggle switch and the car runs fine. Anybody have any opinions???? Help is much appreciated THANKS YOU

Test the wires between the PCM and the relay. Do you hear the relay click when you turn the key?
