I've seen this problem before. If the fuel pump assembly was bumped in the replacing procedure it's very possible that the fuel gauge sending unit was damaged. Those things are extremely sensitive unlike most GM cars and trucks. Cadillacs are very touchy vehicles to work on unfortunately.

How can you tell if the fuel pump is bad or if it is a fuel filter that needs to be changed?


the easy way is take off the fuel filter shake up and down and drain the fuel on any clean container and you will be see how dirty are and check the fuel pressure in the line from the the tank if pressure is ok check the power or volts to the pump.

Could be a small amount of rust got into fuel filter from sitting empty, try changing fuel filter before worrying about the fuel pump.Filters could be partly plugged and its always smart to start with the cheaper fixes first.

Do you notice it dieing in a certain place? Like in a hilly area or on inclines? I recently had a similar problem on my motorhome. I seemed to run fine on the flats or downhill, but when I went to climb a hill, it would die. It ended up being a weak fuel pump, water in the fuel and a clogged fuel filter. So I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter and put two cans of heat in the fuel tank (75 gallon tank) and it ran great the rest of the way home.

You need to attach a pressure gauge to the schrader valve and measure the fuel pressure with the key on and also while running. You need to see about 40 lbs in both cases.
