Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

    You've confirmed no power to pump connection when this occurs correct?

I have a 93 Ford F150 4.9 liter. And when I go to start it the fuel pump stays running for close to four minutes and then it will not start until the fuel pump shuts off?

OK, when you turn the key to on, it will start the pump for about 2 seconds-this is just to put pressure in the lines and in the fuel rail for easy starting. If key is not turned to start, pump will shut off after 2 seconds. But when cranking in start, and when engine is running, the pump is on full time.
If your pump runs longer than 2 seconds with key only in on position, you have a fuel circuit problem. It very well could be a bad fuel pump relay staying on. Or it could be a computer problem signaling the relay to stay on longer. Try a new fuel pump relay first and see if that was the problem.

Truck starts runs for a few minutes then stalls sometimes starts again sometimes wont start

Can either be fuel filter is dirty or fuel pump is going and there may be a short or burnt wire on the fuel relay. they should all be located in the same area.

I just recently bought a 1993 Amigo, Isuzu and I am having problems with the way it is running. It has a new motor, clutch, and converter on it . the problem is it sat stored for 5 yrs. it seems there is...

It could be a bunch of things, but let's assume it is the fuel, Water or crud in the gas tank will usually make the engine just cut right out and come right back, If it runs some what, and you can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key, the fuel pump should be ok, only a pressure test will tell you more. Fuel filter might be clogged, but the fuel sitting in the carb for five years is the biggy. It dries out and turns into rock, especially in the jets, the bowl usually turns into jelly, I would get some gas treatment in the tank, and some carb cleaner in the spray can, this is the easiest way to fix it if it does anything at all. Run the fuel through if you are driving it, and take the air horn or filter off and spray in the carb cleaner with the engine running. If you don't notice a big difference, I would go ahead and get the carb rebuilt or replaced with a used one or new, whichever. Sometimes the cleaner will do the trick. Check it out.

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

1993 Nissan Altima will crank but won't start - sometimes - altitude issues?

The system is not affected by altitude in this way, the thing you need to check is fuel pressure, this may be pump related.

Won't stay running

sounds like fuel delivery, sometimes check valve in fuel pump will quit working and fuel will drain back into tank, or pin hole in one of fuel lines, check fuel pressure
