This is a very common problem. GM has issued a service bulletin to replace the wiring connector at the fuel pump assembly on top of the tank. check the end of the plug for burnt terminals. the service bulletin states that these corroded connectors cause a voltage drop that results in repeated pump failures.

I changed map sensor on my 1996 gmc Yukon with a 5.7 liter votec cleared codes it stared up but it died it wanted to run no luck but no codes what can it be

Possible fuel pump. Look under the truck and locate the fuel tank. Have an assistant turn the key to the on position(2nd position) and listen to see if your fuel pump gives a him sound for about 2 seconds. If not, bang on the tank with the palm of your hand a few times and try it again. If you hear it, tell your assistant to try and start it. If it cranks, your fuel pump will need replacing.

I have a 92 GMC K1500 I drove approx. 2 miles to deliver a package truck was running fine. shut it off approx 10 min. later would not crank. pulled off air breather was not getting fuel. thought fuel pump...

It can still be the fuel pump.the pump could be getting hot and not working. If u let it set for awhile and cool down it will start. You need to do a fuel pressure test it should read between 40 and 50 psi. Let it run for awhile and see if the pressure drops. If so I would replace the pump

I parked my 02 chevy express on incline with 1/4 tank. wouldnt start.couldnt hear the pump.tapped tank still nothing. put van on level ground tapped tank and started. drove home tried again and started...

If you can rap the fuel tank on the bottom and the car starts, it's almost a guarantee that it's your fuel pump.
You have to get it replaced. Your luck at the little rapping trick runs out after awhile.

Thought the fuel pump was bad, engine died but after hitting tank with mallet it started up and ran. replace fuel filter. started and ran a few min then died wouldnt start up. replace fuel relay still wont...

If you hit the tank and it ran? The fuel pump is bad. By striking the tank you jarred the pump, causing what mechanics call "The last ride" Peice of sound advise, Replace with ac delco pump. The zone pumps go out usaly within months if not days

99 yukon 180,000 mi. doesn't start. cranks forever, but won't start. Should I be able to hear the fuel pump when I turn on the key?

yes you should be able to hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds once the key is turned to the on pos. check to make sure you have spark. if you do try having someone spray air intake or carb cleaner into intake manifold while you crank. If the truck starts right up for a second (or stays running as you keep spraying) Id say you have a bad fuel pump and id change the sending unit also. (First check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay) GMC and Chevy are nororiously known for having bad fuel pump/sending unit problems. I have prob changed over 60 myself.

My GMC yukon XL 2001 engine runs after 4 times of cranking.

Try turning key to on only, not start, 2 or 3 times first then try to start. If it starts good first try, then I'd change my fuel filter & then have fuel pressure tested if fuel filter didn't help. You may be looking at a new pump, but lets do filter & test fuel pressure first.
