the fuel filter is located down under the middle of the frame rail, on the drivers side,remove the lines from the filter, look out b/c some fuel will come out after diconecting the line. replace with the new filter make sure you get the "FLOW" "should be marked on the filter" pointing to the front of the car

for 1 fuse blown evry so often then you must have a short somewhere, the fact that it will crank and not start is most likely ur fuel pump , had the same issue with getting fuel to start or keep car running, possible that short could be by the fuel pump, the fuel pump is located under the rear seat and if im not mistaken it is on the drivers side rear

your first mistake was going to autodummie for your parts. cause they wont give your money back on electric parts and more than likely its your fuel filter.

You need to have a fuel pressure gauge to check it when it wont run. Take your fuel pump relay and switch it for the horn relay. Is the ground good for the fuel pump, the wire bolts on the frame. these had problems with the connector at the fuel tank, make sure they are in good conditon and dont look like they have been hot or melted.

So you threw parts at it. No harm intended. Should have started with the adding gas part first. You know the filter is new and it does run! Are the fuel pump amps correct,pump mech bound,no fuel volume, pressure regulator work correctly? Does the pump run in start mode or time out? Now the harder stuff. What does the spark and timing look like,What is the computer seeing and then what command is it sending?

Try changing your filter first if that does not work it could be your pump. It is possible for the pump to still pump fuel up through your filter but if it is not putting out sufficient pressure then your car wont start. Most fuel injection systems require around 35psi to fire the injectors.

2003 chevy cavilar, won't stay running


It sounds like you may have a cloged fule filter, start with that and then check to see if your fuel pump had gone bad. Most likely it's your fuel filter if it's never been changed. The other common problems is a partial clog to the injectors but i don't think that is the problem here. Good luck

Fuel pump relay


If this happens every time you start your truck and it shuts off the same each time, you just might have a dirty fuel filter only allowing so much gas pass through until it clogs once again. I once had a chevy van, when I would drive it, would go a few miles and engine would shut down.   I would wait 10 or 15 minutes, it would start up and allow me to drive a few more miles then shut down again.  I changed the fuel filter, It was fine after that.
