1997 GMC K1500 4x4 5.7 ex.cab SFI injection system

Fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions. replaced fuel pump/filter 3 times within 2 months. Lean fuelcodes. No visible sign of gas leaking. Cannot identify locationof fuel pump relay. Poor to no performance acts as if starvingfor fuel.

I would check the fuel lines themselves and make sure there is no blockage. If not you might want to check your fuel injectors and see if they need to be replaced. also make sure you didnt install fuel filter backwards.

I ran my car out of gas 1995 geo tracker . Ran fine for two days after . Replaced fuel filter . Fuel pump is working. Now it won't start . It try's but then dies ? Any suggestion would be appreciated


so ran fine for 2 days
id bet it didnt have only 1 gallon there.
or did you run it dry again.?
the pump is fuel lubricated and cooled
ran dry invites wrecking a good pump.

Have you changed the fuel pump yet?I had the same exact problem.I replaced my fuel pump with an AUTOZONE PIECE OF JUNK fuel pump.That pump lasted almost 2 days.The second day i had it the truck didnt want to start but it did and it ran like ****,and when i put it in gear it ran as long as I didnt touch that gas pedal.You could go get a fuel pressure test or just replace it,your call.You might want to check your filter too but im sure its the pump.Good luck

2001 Xterra - Replaced fuel pump twice and is still not running.


I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.

Hey there boatright33,

A few things things immediately come to mind.

There may be a problem with the engine controller. You could check the ODBII onboard diagnostics. Auto part stores will usually do this for you at no cost.

When you pulled the ones that were/went bad, how did the filters look? Could there be particulate matter still in the tank causing them to fail.

I always put this one off until last. Check the injectors. Are they gummed up?

Let me know what you find out
