2000 Camaro 3.8 V6 Fuel pump problem

We have a 2000 camaro with a v6 and we changed the fuel filter and now the fuel pump wont run. It ran fine before we changed the filter. The relays under the hood are all good. But we cant get the pump to kick on. Is there any kind of reset switch or relay? I was told that there is a test lead fro the fuel pump but cannot find it. Any help would be great.

We finally got the car to run but it shortly died afterwards. Now I have the problem that after you start the car it dies just a couple seconds after it is started. Any advice would help me out alot.

Thanks,
Aimee

Re: 2000 Camaro 3.8 V6 Fuel pump problem

As for the problem you are experiencing, yes, I would check for fuel
pressure at the rails. If there is none, start by checking the fuse to the fuel pump circuit. If it's good, check your wiring -- make sure nothing has come loose or broken, burnt, etc... Verify that you have voltage present to the pump when you turn on the ignition. And, as a last resort, I would replace the pump, since it's the most complicated to do of the above mentioned items.

All I can think of to help sorry.

One more thing:

Do you have the filter installed in the right direction? Should have an arrow pointing on or something. Most of the time the arrow indicates that the point goes FWD or points to the front of the car.
