Gas not reaching the fuel filter on 2003 Silverado, what should I do?

Unfourtnatly if the pump has never been replaced before its 13 years old .
These pumps last 10 years or so depending on how you drive it and how much fuel is in the tank low is not good they also have a high pressure 66 ft lbs and most of the fuel is returned to the tank its not needed WHY .
Another problem is the pump can't be axcessed with out droping the tank so you can test the circuit but can never be sure of the conection to the pump witch runs over the top of the tank and is an up grade now because it wasn't resistance wire and tended to over heat just what you need burning wires on the top of your fuel tank .Don't really know how chevy got away with this .
All I know is these fuel systems are so poorly disgined that the junk yards can't sell any parts for insureance reasons

My Wife's 98 dodge caravan gas light comes on having more then half a tank then later it shuts off while driving. Can turn on by JumpStart after a hour. Replaced the Alternator and it has happened again....

I'm not completely understanding what your problem is. You say it shuts off while driving.. You mean the gas light or the engine? Then you said "can turn on by jump start after one hour".. Do you mean you have to jump start the engine and wait one hour before it will start? If that's correct, have you had the battery tested to make sure it's not bad? If your battery is not receiving the charge from the alternator, your cables or battery terminals may be corroded and preventing the current flow from reaching the battery. Take a volt meter and do a voltage check while it's running to make sure you have more than a 13 volt output to the battery.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

Service engine light on. Gas tank fills to 3/4 and clicks off. The model is XG350L 2004. The problem began about 2 months ago. It has been worked on once to replace a vacuum valve but still didn't fill up...

Did you have the fuel pump changed? They might of bent the electronic float assembly in the gas tank causing it to read 3/4 full.and making the check engine light come on.

Fuel pump wiring diagram for 1998 chevy express. gas tank when dry, clogged fuel filter. changed fuel filter and van started he let it run out of gas again but now gettin no power to fuel pump. there is...

Well if theres power going to the relay but not out, then you need a new relay. If theres power in and out of the relay, you might need a new fuel pump. The electric fuel pumps inside the tank are actually lubricated by the fuel as it pumps it, and if it runs dry long enough, it can burn out the pump

I think the fuel pump went out on my 93 GMC 1500 truck.

try changing the fuel pump. When the tank goes empty it sucks the dirt into the lines.
