Make sure the fuel filter wasn't installed backwards...if it is correct..then replace the fuel pump..just because it works,doesn't mean it's strong enough to deliver fuel..best of luck

Liquid gasoline by itself won't burn in the presence of a spark -
unless ... Semi-related, but be on the lookout for failing fuel pumps
due to states ...

Unfortunatly on GM vehicles when the fuel pumps run dry they usually damage themselves. The problem you are describing sounds like a bad fuel pump. When you turn the key to the run position you should hear the pump come on for 5 seconds and then shut off. It should be a medium pitch whine but sound smooth. Unfortunatly on GM vehicles the tanks must be removed to change pumps and depending on the climate you are in could show other problems. Here in Michigan on vehicles of that age they will usually need new tanks and sending units due to rust. I get around $500 to replace a fuel pump. Of course the price goes up with the more that is needed replaced. Hope this helps

Coils and wires are the most likely culprits as they never get replaced hardly ever. You cant really test a coil, you can check for resistance on the plug wires but that doesnt tell you if the insulation is bad on them.
