The fuel pump might be working but it is not priming. When you turn on the vehicle, the pump sends fuel under pressure to the injectors, to "prime" or have fuel present to be able to start engine. Without it there will no fuel available to start it. You are manually priming the engine, and the fuel pump is taking over from there. Check connections to fuel pump and replace if necessary. It is not an inexpensive repair

Hi 1998 chevy astro, runs rough, stops runing p0108 code


Replace the map sensor,I believe it is mounted on a bracket,between the valve cover,and the throttle body.If not it is on the intake,it is flat,with a vacuum port,and a three wire connector.Most of the time the grommet,or plug in,is green .

Sticky throttle on 200 Chevy Astro


There was a recall on the throttle body blade on the 4.3 a few years back for the throttle body to stick in the close position. Yours being 9 years old makes me think that there not going to do anything for it but give you the solution to the sticky throttle blade.
The solution was to change the blade. You can try cleaning the throttle body blade by spraying throttle body cleaner in to the barrel of the throttle body. If you look down, you'll see the carbon build up and it may just need and good cleaning. 
If that does not work, you can buy a new Throttle body blade which is only held on by two screws on the throttle blade shaft.

Start with cleaning the blade and throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Just follow the instruction and you'll be fine. 
Keep me posted and good luck.

Engine Stalls When stopped and in Drive


Question, did you replace the throttle body, or clean the throttle plate, it will carbon up and block air needed for the idling speed to be correct. Also check for vacuum leaks, as the older vehicles didn't have good vacuum hoses. Good luck
