SOURCE: 95 gmc safari replaced fuel filter van ran great now wont start

Since you replaced the distributor, are you sure it's properly timed? Hook up timing light and try to crank. It should show you where your timing mark is. It will also verify that you are getting spark.
You need to start a systematic check. Is it electrical, mechanical, fuel related? Need to do more checking and maybe we can get that puppy going.

Good Luck

SOURCE: how replace fuel pump 2001 gmc safari

Initially since the fuel pump is located in the gas tank ,it is not a task for the average home mechanic. It is electric puts out about 15 lbs. pressure uses the gas in the tank as a coolant. In older models it is possible to have the pump wiring burn and short out.The results could be a fire or if you are fortunate pump failure.

There are 4 hoses comimg out of the tank that are held on by clamps get those of then un clamp the filler hose then un screw bolts holding the tank and it drops right down.

You need to open the tank then you can put in the new pump witch is 40 dollars make sure its facing the same way as took it out then you slide it back in close up the tank then raiseit up put the 4 bolts back in to hold it up the put the 4 hoses back on were they go tightin the clamps and you are done.

1997 Safari will not start unless carb cleaner sprayed in air intake. runs after this. Confirm spark and motor rotation.

Have your fuel pressure checked.Sounds like pump or relay is out or fuel filter restricted too much.Remove the gas cap and put your ear to filler neck while someone turn's the key on,you should hear the pump running.pump run's for about 8 second's to prime fuel rail then shut's off till cranking.
