No pressure at fuel rail or nothing coming from injectors? I have seen pumps fail like that though. Pump comes out like the older pickup/sending units did. after tank is down, remove snap ring then remove pump. Check the "sock" filter on the pump to make sure it's nopt plugged up...If it is, you can change sock and clean out tank. Otherwise replace pump.

Distributor not rotating after changing the fuel pump on 3.8 chevy

The 3.8 liter engine has a timing chain. The distributor shaft should be turning if your timing chain is still intact. Have you pulled it out and reinstalled it? Maybe you did not get it seated right.
This must not be a '99 Silverado as shown in the heading? Give a reply back, and explain please. You replaced a fuel pump in the gas tank, and now the distributor shaft is not rotating? There is no plausible relation between the two-please explain.

Z71 will not idle at startup

hate to say it but this model is known for fuel pump issues. I had a '99 4X4 and had similar problems, replaced the fuel pump and all was good. If you do this job yourself I recommend pulling the bed off over dropping the tank. Though the whole repair is a pain in the *** this actually the easiest.

Changing fuel pump 99 slverado

there are 2 ways to do this. you can drop the tank or take the bed off. i prefer to take the bed off it was easy er that way for me. but once you get to the top of the tank there will be a ring that holds the pump in just take a pair of pliers and take it off but you will need a special tool to take the fuel lines off because they are quick connect lines but once you get it unhooked it should just slide out the top.
