    Hi everyone,

    I have a 1995, 3.4L Camaro that has been giving me fuel pressure problems for a while now. Pressure is low on key on, and low while the engine is running. Before this the previous pump died a mile from my house, and since then it’s been a bit of an odyssey replacing that and checking everything out.

    So after putting in a new pump and sender unit, and checking everything from the fuel rail back I’ve discovered an electrical issue (maybe that’s why the old pump went out)? Doing a drop voltage test, I found the ground side is good, with only a .15V drop at the fuel pump connector. The power side isn’t doing so well, as it’s over a 1V drop at that connector and also reading high resistance at other connectors in that circuit. Here is the electrical diagram with the readings:

    From that, where should I suspect the resistance issue is coming from? I thought it would be the fuel tank connector A1, but if I’m getting those values at other points the problem is somewhere earlier right?

    Why not just load test the circuit.
    Disconnect power to the fuel pump and use a light or lights of equal load.
    If they burn bright the circuit can handle the load, if not, begin working your way backwards to isolate the issue.
