Question about Chevrolet Astro
1992 Chevy Astro van cut off while driving. Put new fuel pump on and told it is not getting enough pressure after they tested with a fuel pressure gauge. What can I do now to get it back on the road? It will crank after several attempts and must spray starter fluid but cuts off within seconds.
Its either got a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pressure regulator is bad.

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,
It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
Bad fuel pump

I have had the same problem in trying to start my van. I noticed that it only did this in the rain or high humidity day. In tearing apart my van to find a solution, I had noticed that when trying to start the van, the ignition coil was arcing onto the mount holding it in place. I only noticed this due to the fact that by now, it was dark. After changing the coil, I never ran into this problem again.
I do hope this helps.

install a fuel pressure guage and check pressure should be over 45 lbs, also check for signal at the injectors with a noid light
