I changed my fuel pump and filter today and now my 2000 caravan wont start. Was running before i changed it. The pump is working and there is fuel pumpimg. I push the check valve in the fuel line and it is coming threw. What else might be the problem? I am at wits end here please help.

did you trip the inertia switch to bleed off the system pressure before the service???? make sure you reset that.

other then that it seems like you have air in the system and will just take alot of cranking and starts/stalls to get the air out.

the filter was installed in the correct flow direction right? just checking

Question., more specifics, if fuel pump was working, why did you chang it? Have you check the actual PSI pressure on the new fuel pump.
