Do you have normal fuel pressure when you turn the key on the first time ?
You could be loosing fuel pressure when the engine is off.

96 Monte carlo z34 won't crank over unless I jump


Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

Gas gauge quit working, now car won't start


Sounds like you dont have any power going to your fuel pump. You will have to drop your tank and with a light tester check the red wire for power. If you cant tell with one is the red wire it will be the secound wire going into the plug. If you dont have any power there then make sure your fuses are good. You will need help with this because it is very had to reach the key switch and check the wire the same time. It is on a relay switch and only stays on for 5 secounds. Good luck.

How to check for a bad fuel pump in a "99" blazer, 4.3 motor? I sprayed starting fluid in air fillter and it would fire but not run.


If gas and starting fluid does not create a spark I believe the coils or ignition module is your problem
To check the fuel pump turn the key to the on position without trying to start the engine. Once turned to to on position the fuel pump will run for 5 secounds to prime fuel pressure to the injectors. If heard running you have a problem above as mentioned

Sounds like the relay is not shutting off fuel pump. Turn the key to on position ( not start ), pump should only run for a few secounds and you will hear a click and pump should shut off, if it keeps running relay is bad. If it works like it should than fuel regulator (if there is one) would be the next posability.

I shut my car off and now it won't start. It cranks over and over and over but won't start even with a jump. Could it be the fuel pump?


Well the pump is possible. LOcate the fuel tank under the car have some one turn the key on and listen for a whining noise thats the fuel pump it will only run for a few secounds every time you turn the key on and off.
