1994 E150 351, low voltage to fuel pump
<HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #d1d1e1; COLOR: #d1d1e1" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->I have a 1994E150 conversion van with a voltage problem to the fuelpump. I installed a new pump when the original pump suddenly stopped pumping. But then I discovered the voltage to the inertia swith is only 6.2 volts, after the new pump wouldn't run either. I checked the obvious but no solutions yet. Could the ignition swith be the culprit?
I need ideas. Thx

We use to have a 1990 Ford E150 351 windsor never had a problem fuel pump wise but I will tell you that with other pickup trucks I have worked on I always checked the fuel pump relay they go out periodically. We had an 85 Pontiac 6000 same problem I asked my dad what are theses we replaced 4 of them car ran great. I would definatly replace them first they only are like 10 dollars a pop or so I think don't qoute me. I am not completely sure of where they are at on a van so maybe ask a mechanic.
It is true Bill they go out alot and in those types of enviorments they are even more prone to problems. Anyways at around 10 dollars a pop it couldn't hurt it at all or your pocket to bad in some cases.
Hope you figure it out. These older E150s with the 351 are great vans ours was just like it did everything we asked of it even got the life beat out of it till it went up in our house fire I still miss that old conversion van it did so great at hauling our family. Even with 167000 miles on the old son of a gun.
