Question about 1995 Chevrolet Corsica
It could very well be the fuel pump. GM pumps usually go like that, one minute they are fine the next they arn't. Unfortunatly the gas tank must be removed to replace the pump. Depending on the climate the car is in this could present further problems with rusted fuel lines and even a rusted out tank. If you are in an area where it's usually dry and no salt gets used on the roads you are probably ok. Here in Michigan a vehicle of that age that needs a fuel pump usually needs a tank and sending unit also due to rust. Now for the quick check, if you follow the fuel lines to the engine, one of them should have what looks like a large valve stem cap on it, unscrew the cap and you will see what looks like a tire valve. After you try starting the car use a small screwdriver and depress the valve and see how the gas comes out. If it sprays out with a good amount of pressure that is good, if it just dribbles out or only a little bit comes out it's a bad pump. Hope this helps.
