I ran out of gas and I put two gallons of fuel in my car. It started for a second and then died. Now it tries to turn over but can't make it all the way. I think it might be a fuel pump problem because the car isn't making the noise it usually makes that means it is sucking fuel up into the engine (you know, the noise that happens when you first turn the key but have not started the engine yet). where should I start?

Its more than likely the fuel pump . Giving the year and the symptoms . You may have not ran out of gas in the first place it may have actually been the fuel pump . You are probably just getting enough gas in it to start and then cut out right away.
first is the fuel pump running first take the fuel cap off then have someone turn the key all the way on the pump should run for 5-7 second then turn off if you hear the pump turn on and off check your fuel filter which is in front of the fuel tank on the drivers side.
Make sure it is not on a hill and put more than one gallon in the tank.If the vehicle is leaning the pump might not be getting enough fuel to push to the engine.Also you can remove the air cleaner boot that goes to the throttle body and spray carb.cleaner in the throttle body.If it runs momentarily then you are not getting fuel to the engine.Hope this helps.Good luck.
has to be corroded fuel pump resistor behind passenger head light under hood but Im sure by now you have done the research and found that out already 97 gtps had recalls because its in an easy spot to get corroded can buy a new kit for 40 bucks or so through gm or online
check all fuses for turn signal and brake lights.change fuel filter . first. do a little tune up change spark plugs and wires . if changing fuel filter dont help. have fuel pressure check first before buying a new fuel pump .they run after taxes 400.00 dollars. your fuel pressure should be 41 to 47 psi. replace fuel pump relay also.
is this a supper cahrged grand prix if so check fuel pump resistor located behind right front head light or on fire wall its made of white ceramic has to wires going to it jump the two wire on the connection going to it if it runs longer then 15 min then replace resiustor.
