Start by checking the OBD1 fault codes with a code reader, then if nothing shows up check the fuel pressure, it should be 42-44 PSI, and it should go up when you race the engine for a second to about 50-52 pounds, up never down, if it goes down then you may have a plugged fuel filter or failing fuel pump. To check the codes without a scanner click this LINK

I have a 97 4 door jimmy. just replaced the fuel pump and it is workingI I checked the filter and it is not cloged. What else should I check

Depends, You say your fuel pump has been replaced & is working. You do not describe what the "Issue" is. Lack of performance, acceleration ? Is this a situation, where the engine starts & "idles" but, does nothing else?? When you depress the acceleration/gas pedal the car begins to speed up, then abruptly die? If this is your problem, is it a 2.8 V6, 3.6 V6.????? Engine size was also not listed. If it has an abrupt stop when depressing the fuel pedal. Then comes up to speed & stays at speed until taking your foot off: 1.) look for a stuck or "sticking" EGR valve as it is in constant comunication with the ECM, giving instructions to the fuel rail/injector components. 2.) Check the OHM's on the IAC component (Idle Air Control) it is a small oval shaped sensor/control directly on the side of the Throttling body, on both FI (fuel Injected via carburetor,or a MPI Plenum) The other cause, is this has happened is a broken vacuum line at the EGR valve PCV Valve, break in a larger vacuum line such as the one to Power Brake booster.

This sounds like a restricted exhaust system, may have a clogged cat-converter,i would start by checking the exhaust system,and also check the engine for loose vacuum hoses

Check engine light illuminated, cruise light flashing; lack of power and "moaning" sound when engaging accelerator

is probably your o2 sensor. measures amount of fuel to oxygen ratio.causing lack of power. depending on v6 or 4 depends on wether you have 2 sensors or not hope this helps,ones by the header pipe and other just behind your catalytic converter on exhaust.
