First ... look in the fuse panel.. in the engine compartment near the battery for the fuel pump relay.... replace that... if still no sound from the fuel pump it has likely failed. use a meter to test for voltage at the fuel pump.... or use a car battery to apply voltage to the fuel pump directly... if it starts up the issue is elsewhere. to replace the fuel pump you will likely need to drop the fuel tank.

87 K5 was running yesterday this morning went to leave and dome light, headlights, check engine light and fuel pump arent working.

It has to do with the secondary air intake. first check for any cracks or leaks in the air intake system. most cars have a plastic routing tube that cracks or gets a hole in it from friction . could be even a bad clamp.check these places first. you might want to disassemble the whole air intake hose apparatus so you can really see whats going on on the bottom side.good luck ,and give me a rating if it helps,Gary

1987 k5 blazer sometimes wont start unless i give it a quick shot of ether

Its time for a new fuel pump . The check ball in the fuel pump that holds the residual pressure you need to start up the vehicle is defective.
