When a fuel pump is replaced, it's good pratice to do the filter at the same time to.

    If the pump is hummin, and no fuel to the filter, sounds like a hose problem. See, on the fuel pump itself, there is the pump then a short rubber or plastic hose that runs up to the metal lines. I've seen these hoses break. So your going to need a new fuel pump. Although, talk to your mechanic and tell him the cheaper the better. See, some fuel pumps you can swap out that rubber hose, and the others with the plastic ones you can't. So if you can convince your mechanic to do this, it will save you money. Now remember, I said sounds like. Maybe the hose is good and even though the pump is hummin, it's still bad. But I can guarantee it's something with the pump. Good luck.

Time to replace the fuel filter. It's not a hard job actually. And it's a VERY common thing to go wrong. I'd change the fuel filter and then run some fuel treatment through the tank afterwards. Believe it or not, I've noticed that a nice bottle of fuel treatment really conditions a fuel filter well.

Hope this helps you out.

96 blazer.4.3 ltr crank fuel fuel and spark.still won't start

How about the fuel pump...are you getting the fuel to the cylinders? Is the fuel making it through the fuel line through the fuel filter? Drop a few drops in 1 cylinder, if it fires, you have a fuel problem. Does it turn over? If not check out the motor starter!

Wont' start engines turns over when ignition engaged seems like no fuel getting to spark plugs were replacing the fuel fliter now

Fuel filters do not clog up like they used to because unleaded gas is so clean.You should try the fuel pump relay first.Greg

My 1996 s10 blazer wont start it has new fuel pump and has spark. I changed the spider but still wont start

Like Kristisamp Said check the Fuel pump relays, they are little black box shaped fuses in the glove box, there are 3 of them, I think there may be a cover over them so you can see it......
Take the cover off and there you go......
I have a 96 blazer 2 door that had the same problem, I repalced thes relays and Bam!!! fired right up........
