The logical answer would appear to be fuel related, but it may not be. 1st determine if your problem is fuel related by putting your ear on the fuel tank door while someone else turns on the ignition switch. Don't attempt to start it, but just turn the switch on. You should hear a humming sound for about 3 seconds. If you don't, check the fuse to the fuel pump. If the fuse is ok, you probably have a problem with the new pump and hopefully you put a new filter on the pump itself before you installed it. If not, the new pump may have gotten trash in it and froze up. If you do here a hum from the pump, pull a spark plug wire and put an old plug in the end while grounding it to the motor. Spin the motor to see if you have a spark at the plug. If not, your problem is electrical. Post your results.

Check your PCV VALVE. it should be located on top of or very near the top of your airfilter/carb housing.

SOURCE: ran fine then would not start

If it has been rainy, snowy or wet at all were you live you will need to change the cap and rotor. These vortec motors with the horizontel cap are very well known for not starting when damp. Also while you have the cap off there are two holes in the bottom of the distributer with screens in them, clean these out or remove them to keep the moisture from returning.

Thanks,

SOURCE: took off this morning and the escape started

you are right, its probably the fuel filter. wow 113120 miles without changing the fuel filter. also, change the air filter and have your intake manifold cleaned. this will greatly improve acceleration and fuel economy. best wishes - hotratchet

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened


When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

Lets start at the beginning. Did anyone check fuel pressure before and after replacing the pump ?
Has anyone checked the fuel pressure regulator and the injector spider ? The 4.3w engine uses a spider with one injector that supplies all 6 cylinders. And it runs at 65psi or more.

Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?


If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.

Car hesitation


had a problem with a grand prix like that once, was the fuel filter, and injectors, all needed replaced, and it only had 89,000 miles.
Would check fuel filter first. Is it possible you got some bad gas??
