I would begin by doing a basic tune up (plugs, wires, cap and rotor). The fuel pump is likely not your issue. If the basic tune up doesn't help I would remove the ignition module from the distributor (this requires a special tool). Have it checked at your local parts house, usually free of charge. If it tests ok, reinstall the ignition module. At this point the vehical will probably need to be taken to the dealer and hooked up to a full diagnostics system (DINO). What will be looked for is a bad PROM inside the ECM or a bad ECM overall. Without it's component to computer connection an ECM can give false readings and tell the engine and it's sensors to do the wrong job. This is critical in the diagnosis of a full bank failure. Hope this helps, good luck!

Chevy diesal wont start fuel pressure is good

Make sure no check engine light. If light on run diagnostic prior to testing. If no check eng. light and no start when cold, could be bad glow plugs, Take test light from positive side of battery to each glow plug post (unplug from harness before testing) if test light lights plug good . if plugs good check pump mounted driver (scan tool required) if P.M.D. good run test for optical sensor in injector pump (scan tool required). Known failure points. I am working on assumption fuel pressure tested between lift pump and injector pump. Look for white smoke when cranking, if present fuel entering cylinders. I can't offer anymore help without further info. Hope this helps.

This is a fuel pressure issue. chang out the fuel filter (near pass light, cylinder with 4 rubber lines running from the top), not the fuel pump (right next to the filter; follow two of the rubber lines from the fuel filter to the driver side...that's your pump, the shiny squarish looking thing, it'll have 4 hard lines running from the righthand side of it).

My saturn has no power drives very slow up hills

You could try changeing the fuel filter its located on the drivers side under the drivers door and runs along the frame rail in the metal fuel line . It could also be the fuel pump and a clogged filter can damage the pump it makes it work to hard . Satarn is supposed to be a cut above chevy but the avarge life for a chevy feul pump is 10 years yours is 11 . You should change all fuel filters every 5 years or so . And this would not nessarly make the engine light come on if it did then it would likely be a P0300 eighter 1234 at the end of the code so P0304 would be miss fire on #4 cylinder . GOOD LUCK WITH IT

You've done a great job of trouble shooting thus far. I would certainly suspect the injector after all of that. But, I didn't see anything about you replacing the spark plug itself. I would try that first as a crack in the insulator (even hairline) will cause mis-fires. If the spark plug doesn't fix the mis-fire, it cold be caused by a bad fuel injector, bad signal (like a loose harness or bad wire) to the fuel injector, or a leak or valve issue on that cylinder.

Hello: When you turn the key on the fuel pump should run for 2 seconds if it isn't the check the f/p fuse, relay and it could be the pump itself. You might take a hammer and beat on the bottom of the fuel tank (in the center) while someone is holding the key in start (turning engine over) if it starts you have a fuel pump problem.

check your spark. If you have spark check your fuel to see if the pump is working. If there's no spark, check your distributor cap. If there's no fuel check your fuel pump relay and also the emergency cutoff switch on the drivers side in the trunk behind the carpet, make sure its pushed in.
