Check the fuel pump. there is an access port on the fuel rail underneath the intake manifold cover. it looks like a valve for putting air in a tire. at your local car parts store you can find a fuel pressure guage to make sure your getting the 45lbs psi that is needed to run the fuel system. if your not getting 45psi when you crank the engine replace the fuel pump. it is located in the gas tank. ( FYI ) If you run below a 1/4 tank of fuel the fuel pump is no longer covered with gas, and over heats. thats why most of the gm pumps go bad. D
