    Hi allyn , I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Please write back and in detail explain the failure, the symptoms, and list any details of any tests that you performed. I'm not sure if the pump is failing, the pump fuel pressure is low but the pump is running,or the fuel pressure if fine but the injectors are not spraying. You are the eyes and ears of this vehicle. I will do my best to help, good luck.

Have a competent mechanic run a diagnosis to find the real problem. Otherwise, your approach is a total waste of money.

Behind the air cleaner box, there are two relays. Over time they corrode and get stuck...change them out and see if that improves the situation.

SOURCE: Where is the location of the fuel pump relay

Did it run fine prior to replacing the alt and battery? Check over where you have been working,sometimes things get bumped/disconnected. Fuel pump shut-off switch is in one of the kick panels near the inside of the doors. Reach up over the top of the kick panel. The pump relay are near the battery. What happens on this model too,is the heater leaks on the computer,which is under the heater core.The coolant/water shorts it out.

Yes it should be 12 volts at the pump. i have had this problem at the shop a couple of times and i replaced the inertia switch and it fixed it. Also check the connector at the inertia switch, there is high resistance in the circuit which is causing the voltage to be low.

Electrical problem with fuel pump

disconnect the pump by the tank and put power directly to the wires to check it. You should hear it whining. If you do. the pump works. next check the pressure at the engine, you may have a plugged filter. if you find the wires from the front to back of the car has no power after checking for power on all components, ( the relay socket should have power on 2 sockets when the key is on) make sure this is so. If its not you need to make sure you get power on terminal marked 30 on the relay and either 85 or 86 (one will be ground the other power) if all that checks out you have a wire broken leading from the relay to the fuel tank.

I would check the fuel lines themselves and make sure there is no blockage. If not you might want to check your fuel injectors and see if they need to be replaced. also make sure you didnt install fuel filter backwards.

1997 GMC K1500 4x4 5.7 SFI injection system

fuel pump died replaced it truck ran poorly afterwards. Had a prussuer test done pump determend pump was no good. Put in another ran good for 2 days started running poorly hard to start no power. 2nd fuel pump. So i figure another bad new fuel pump wow changed it put in a third brand new fuel pump. Still will not eve start now. I had it tuned up 2 months ago new plugs rotor, cap, etc. put in a new fuel filter made sure it is on proper checked all connections for leaks. this cannot be a fuel pump problem now. no problem with the elctrical i figure i have great spark on ignition tester. I can hear the fuel pump prime when i turn the key. but when i went and checked the fuel port i had no pressure. When it is being cranked gas sews out of the test port. Also i dont if this is comon cause i used to turn my keyand go. but when i have someone turn the key and i listen at the gas tank whn the key is shut off i hear gs spraying back into the gas tank. So i am open for opinions.
