Can you hear the pump run when you turn the key on? Remember that system is pressurized and will easily spill because of this. There is no reset for fuel pumps, that's on Fords. If you pour gas into the intake it starts, then I would tell you to take a long handled screwdriver or a stetoscope if you have one and place it on one of the fuel injectors and listen when someone cranks the engine. If you don't hear the clicking of the injector while cranking, then your problem is not fuel related. Maybe crank sensor, or even computer. The computer not the module is what controls the fuel injection. The module controls spartk just to let you know. Try getting a trouble code...Hopefully this gets you in the right direction. Good luck.

My 1992 chevy g20 van surges and i'm not sure exactly why. I changed the pcv valve, fuel filter, spark plugs, and air filter. What are some possibilities

My first thought would be a vacuum leak in one of the hoses. Rubber hoses get brittle with age and even a small crack in a hose may cause surging. Happened to me in a Lumina.

When you replaced the fuel pump, did you have you switch to the new harness? Check your wiring.
Could it simply be a relay?
My dash gauges went nuts but the car runs.
Do you hear the fuel pump running?
Did you replace the fuel filter? Should be on the frame under the driver.
Bosch fuel pumps are the way to go. The ret seem to **** out after 60,000.
Good luck.
