Vapor lock could be the problem. Make sure fuel lines are well away from heat or insolate them.

Try cleaning and resetting the throttle body 1st, if its not a dirty air or fuel filter. It might be the fuel pump but cleaning and replacing filters is a cheaper way to eliminate small problems 1st.

It is normal for the pump to run for two seconds when first switched on to pressurize the fuel system. It will turn on again when cranking and while running. I would still suspect the pump given your symptoms, however other problems could also give you the same symptoms. If it is the original pump from 2002, or more than about 7 or 8 years old, I would definitely replace it, and the fuel filter. Often the pump will go intermittent. I had one that I could restart and get down the road by hitting the bottom of the gas tank a few times!

1998 gmc 4.3 starts up but loses power 3-5 mins later,will restart and run again for another short time,fuel filter has just been replaced.


Install a pressure gauge, start and run 3-5 minutes and watch the pressure. You should see the pressure maintain as it did when first started. If it begins to drop, the fuel pump has gotten weak and is starting to fail.
Let me know what you find.
Regards.
