SOURCE: gmc sub wont start 1996

Your fuel pump may be at the end of it's life and need to be replaced. Your going to have to check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve, to have the engine start you need 60 to 65psi. Any other readings will not start and under 55psi, engine will not run. It's common to hear the electric fuel pump working but the mechanical pump it self is worn out and can no longer provide the proper fuel pressure for your SEFI system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help get you truck running again. Auto Zone has loner tool program and they will have the step by step instructions to get the job done.

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Century. Fuel gauge didn't work.

I had a Grand Prix one time (basically the same car) that had a problem with the fuel pump harness. This harness plugs into the top of the fuel pump as you know, and into the floorboard underneath the car. Check the floorboard end for corrosion or broken wires.

Why won't it start?

So do you know for a fact you don't have spark when it fails to start ? ?
And do you know for sure that the injector has power and a ground signal ?
Will it try to start if you spray cleaner into the throttle body even with normal fuel pressure ?
Since you have a distributor, you have an ign control module, but you also have a pickup coil which may be in the bottom of the dist.
Could be a problem with one of the connectors too.

Pull the air cleaner off and crank the engine. If puffs of air come come out of the throttle body when cranking the engine then the timing is not set correctly. Otherwise, after cranking pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with fuel and if so this indicates an ignition problem (coil, distributor/cap/rotor or faulty ECU).
