Question 2001 saab 9-5 Fuel pump replacement

On replacing the fuel pump on my 01 saab 9-5 can I just buy a replacement pump instead of the entire assembly? Does it switch out easily?

You can just change out the pump. Look out for Chinese knock off Walbro pumps. They are even stamped Walbro. Research on Internet. Make sure it is a genuine pump. I ended up buying the whole pump assembly as it was around $100 more and I knew genuine.

My pump was fine. I did it as preventive maintenance. I will sell you my old working complete pump and assembly if you like, as I said, it was functioning fine. PM me if interested

It will be a little easier to give advice if you can provide added information. I translate from your post that you checked plugs, fuses, and relay(s)? Main thing to remember in basic starting is that air, fuel, and spark all need to be present.

Any check engine light (CEL) or codes? Since you changed out the pump and filter you probably checked this, but does the pump run for 2 to 3 seconds when the key is switched "on" but not to "start" ? When you turn to "start", does the starter crank (turn the engine over) ? AND when you do that, does the tachometer bounce showing the engine is cranking?

If there is no sound from the pump when "on", then check the voltage to the pump and the fuel pump fuse. If there is sound, the pump is at least running. If the engine cranks but the tach needle doesn't move, then CPS (crank position sensor) is a very likely culprit. See other recent posts on CPS.

If the pump runs and the tach moves, you need to diagnose further. My next step would be to check the DIC (Direct Ignition Cassette) and plugs. Look for any cracks / distortion on the under side of the unit where the individual spark coils and boots attach. The easiest thing is to try a known good DIC, if one is available. I don't trust non-SAAB (SEM) brand DIC's - failure rates are way too high, and they often fail with no CEL.

If that is not the problem, then I would check the actual fuel delivery at the fuel rail (there is a Schraeder valve with a cap), but you need a fuel pressure gauge for this, and it can be dangerous unless you take precautions. If you really had a bad pump but put in a new one and it runs but gives no pressure then be sure you removed the shipping seal from the pump pickup port.

Hope this will help,

Mariner
