Question about 1992 Cadillac Brougham
My 1992 brougham 5.7 failed to start after refueling. I poured gas in the carburetors and it started for seconds. I towed it home and let it set for two days. I attempted to start it and it did on over a dozen attempts, I drove it forward stopping hard rocking the car. I then backed up and did the same, I turned the engine off and attempted to restart and it would not regardless to what I tried. A week later I attempt to start it and it fires right up. What do you think my problem is?

If you had a strong stream of gas shooting out then you may have an fuel injector problem. Possibly a clogged injector or bad injector.If the stream of gas was weak replace fuel filter first and test again.If problem persists check pump fuse then replace pump. sorry for miss reading your post.

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.
Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.
We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.

If you do not have a guage in the instrument cluster then it is going to be a light. The light will be red or orange and shaped like a little thermostat. When you turn the key to the on position it should iluminate briefly before starting the car. If it does not then you may have bulb out in the cluster.

The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.
