Look for a bad fuse or relay. If both check out, most likely an ECM problem

SOURCE: my jimmy will not start. I replace the fuel pump

Check or replace your ICM (ignition control module) The ICM or the Ignition Control Module, is the brains behind the spark plugs. The ICM tells the spark plugs when to fire and lets the engine know when gas needs to be injected for proper engine ignition. Sometimes if your ICM is out or going bad, you may be able to start your motor up nicely once and then when you turn it off it may not start back up. It can also make you feel like your engine shake and "sputter" bad.
Start with the ICM and thank you for using Fixya, good luck

You'll need to make sure you have spark to the plugs, then try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body to substitute for fuel.
If it will start on starting fluid, you would need to check fuel pressure with a gauge, and check the injectors for power and ground pulse.

I have a 1992 chevy c1500 ext cab truck. 5.0 engine, 2wd. The other day i was driving on the freeway when all of a sudden the engine just died. after pulling it over to the shoulder i tried starting it...

Your problem my friend is the fuel pump. These go out and your dead in the water. If all electrical systems seem fine and no warning light then I would highly suspect the fuel pump. Can you have someone get in and turn the key on and then turn it over while your looking into the throttle body, check and see if your getting gas, if none then it.s the pump. You can also try a LITTLE bit of starting fluid in the breather and it should try to start or may even run a few seconds, again this points to the pump or a completely clogged fuel filter. The pump is located in the gas tank just so you know.

Fuel filter went out we replaced it changed spark plugs also but still wont turn over

Fuel filter has nothing to do with the car turning over. It may prevent the car from starting. Do the engine turn over or try to crank or start. If the car is turning over but will not start it could be fuel related. Is the battery fully charged? if not charge it. Spray some starting fluid in the breather for 3 seconds to see if its fuel related. If the car starts and goes dead it is fuel related. Do this a couple of time and you should get the same results. If it does not start it will be electrical. Good Luck!!!

87 Pathfinder V-6 Engine turns over but does not start.

That could be a few things but we need to find out if it is fuel related or electrical related. A quick way to find out if its fuel related is to spray some starter fluid in the breather for 3 seconds. If it starts and go dead it is fuel related. Do this test a couple of times and you should get the same results. It should runs a few seconds and then go dead.. Fuel related issues means fuel pump and filter needs to be changed. and some times fuel pressure valve. Try this first Good Luck!!!

Starts initially then will not restart for about an hour.

The fuel filter may need to be changed. R the fuel pump is bad. Change the filter 1st. Try spraying starting fluid in the breather and if it starts then your problem is fuel related. If it doesnt it is electrical

1991 Cadillac Brougham not getting gas

The fuel pump is located on the frame undrneath the passenger side rear door.If you have the throtle body injection used on the 305 engine the electric fuel pump puts out about 8 psi.
Sounds like you have a clogged fuel pump. Not that bad to change if you have the special tool needed to remove the fuel lines to the pump. Ask your local Auto parts store for help.

Will not start

Open the air filter container. Spray some starting fluid in and see if it starts. If it starts, it is the fuel filter or fuel pump or both.
