May have to run in line fuel pressure gauge to determine if the fuel is losing pressure and causing this fault or wether you need to look else where like constant injector pulse,air flow meter,faulty distributor etc.

94 tahoe blazer won't start getting fuel and spark

What testing have you done?
I looked at info for 94 blazer 5.7L engine.
Do you have spark, everywhere? Did you use a gage And check fuel pressure, with tbi fuel injection 9--13 psi. With throttle body injection you should be able to see fuel injector/s spray pattern, both fuel injectors. Even if injector/s spray pattern looks good, 5 psi won't start and run a v8.
Check for applicable trouble codes. My info shows your obd1, so you should be able to check some codes, yourself, if there are any.
You need air--fuel--spark--compression, proper amount at the proper time and it should start.

Do a fuel pressure bled down test, it should not loose more than 5 PSI after shut down, if it does then the fuel pump is defective.

1996 4.3 wont start. Turns over, Spark OK, fuel 55psi

Fuel pressure is a little low. Will it start with a couple shots of carb spray in the throttle body? If it does and continues to run than the fuel pump is not providing enough pressure to to open the mechanical poppet valves on the end of the injectors. minimum fuel pressure is 58 psi. One PSI below spec is enough to make it not start.

Also check to make sure there is spark at each cylinder. just because there is spark at the ignition coil does not mean it is getting the the spark plugs. you may have a bad cap or a rotor that is burned through.

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down

Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Can not get it going

Key on pressure should be between 40.5 - 47 psi. Running should be 30 - 44 psi. So possibly the pump is starting to get weak.

When i start my 94 mustang it chugs for about a minute then it is fine. i think its a sensor somewhere but im not sure

U may have a defective fuel pump check valve, if this is the case the system looses pressure after the engine is shut off and then causes this problem u are having. to check this u must hook up a fuel pressure test gauge the fuel pressure test port on the top of the engine, it looks like a metal tire valve, this gauge cost's around $20.00 and is well worth the money, after the gague is screwed onto the test port run the engine and record the fuel pressure reading, then shut the engine down, the pressure should remove close to the running reading, if it drops more than 3 PSI you have a problem and need to replace the fuel pump which is located inside the gas tank.

1988 mustang 5.0 efi flooding engine will not start fuel pump constantly running, fuel reg. replaced will actually fill and with fuel and only fire if pedal is to the floor?

Step one
Click the key forward BUT don't start the car listen for fuel pump to pressurize and shut off. But if the pump keeps running change the fuel pump relay switch under drivers seat. If its pressurizing and shuts off then its not your fuel pump. Fuel pressure at rail when idling is 30 psi.
Let me know what happens cause I know alot about Stangs had 2 5.0
