This is an unfortunatly common problem with this vehicle, if my hypothesis is correct. Try this: disconnect the wiring connector going to the fuel tank, under the bed. Replace the fuse and crank the engine. If the fuse does not blow, then the power wire going to the fuel tank sending unit is shorted out to ground. I change about 15-20 fuel sending units a year for this exact same issue. Replace the fuel tank sending unit if the fuse does not blow. When you get it out, you will see the cause of the short, rust at the connection on top of the sending unit. Hope this helps.

Check your plugs and distributer timing. Maybe try running some seafoam through your injectors.

Sounds to me like the fuel pump is worn out. They DO wear out. And even though they seem to be working, the brushes in the electric fuel pump may not be contacting all the commutator, thus making the pump weak. It may start the motor but can't maintain normal running pressure (27-35psi). Have you run the car out of gas shortly before this problem surfaced? If you have then it's your fuel pump. It was damaged when the tank ran dry. Even though the pump may seem to be working, it's still badly damaged and needs to be replaced.
Just as Matmenzies has stated, get a fuel pressure gauge and test the pressure. I'd start with a complete check of all your vacuum lines. Check for cracks on the vacuum hose that connects to fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Also, if you can, get a hand operated vacuum pump to check the regulator. If you can place a vacuum on the regulator and it holds, I'd say move on the fuel pump and check it.
BTW, if the fuel filter has been changed, you may want to check to see if it was installed backwards! Some fuel filters are valved and will cause symptoms like this. However, this is an immediately noticeable mistake and you haven't provided enough info for me to say more. I'd pull it and check that it has any flow at all. You could have sucked in a big dirt ball and blown it right into the new filter, effectively stopping fuel flow. Then I'd blow out the fuel lines, just to be sure.
Start with these 2 things and post what you find. We'll go from there.

I have 1992 isuzu pup truck.sometimes i turn the key to crank it and there is nothing noise wize,no clicking nothing.the dash lights come on,battery is good.i turn the key another time and it cranks r


you need an ignition switch. One way to figure it out is to turn the key to engage the starter, quickly........over and over, the "catch and start" will happen with no change and suddenly, its engaged. Or, keep the key in the START position, don't let up on it and hit the steering column with your fist, or the steering wheel. It may just be shorting out.

Try a hot wire to the distributor. If the engine keeps running then the problem may lie with the ignition circuit wiring. It also might be the ceramic resistor.
