Likely you have condensation buildup in the fuel tank...when you filled it, you mixed the water with the fuel. Don't bother with drygas There is about two gallons of space between the tank pickup and the bottom likely a good part of that is water....remove the tank and clean it out.

    You could change the filter, but Unloess you are very lucky, I'm betting on water in tank. If when you change the filter, you find any water in there (pour contents into glass jar) any small amount shows a larger amount in tank...Seen this many times before.

1997 seville not getting enough gas to start

For the backfiring, there is a chemical additive process for cleaning the intake system of Northstar V-8's. This is suppose to be done at a Dealer and the solvent stays inside the engine 8 hours or more. It is rumored to be written as a service procedure in the Owners Manual.

Check your battery. A shorting battery will activate the antitheft system. Try a new fuelpump Relay

If you can check the part numbers stamped on the two different pumps and they are the same then that answers your question.

My 1998 cadillac seville was running fine and just stopped. Now it wont start it is getting 10 psi fuel . the injectors are pulsing. we get spark . and we checked the timing ang it seams to be holding...

So you have used the Noid lights to see if the computer is pulsing the Injectors, and you have GOOD Kv on the spartk minimum 25-30 Kv's?

Also it might get gas but how much gas? you need to perform a volume test there is a certain amount of fuel the car needs her minute to sustain demand load variations.

Is it port injection or thortle body? What engine is ? if its port injection your fuel pressure is to low , if its a throtle boty i think 15-18 is minimum to keep the car running, might have a bypassing fuel pump in the tank.

Need more info.

Just purchased the car from a friend and the car has been sat in his garage for a year pumped 10$ in gas and now it shakes wont stay on

bad gas, seems to have water in the tank. there may be a drain plug on the gas tank, if not find a fuel line and disconnect it, get the fuel out, let it dry out for a while and replace it with fresh gas
