Disconnect your Battery.
Remove your air intake and filter housing all the way to the throttle body. Then use a shop rag and release te pressure in the fuel system by the valve on the fuel rail. use the rag to absorb the fuel as it sprays out the fuel rail.
then you unsrew the 2 bolts holing the rail in place.
Then you pry the rail away from the manifold with a flat head.
being careful not to loose any of your injector seals.
when done clean both your injector seats and the rail seats.
use some assembly lube or shop grease to lubricate all of your injector seals upper and lower seals.
remount all parts as you dismounted.
reconnect your battery cylce the ignition key 4-5 times before starting the egine, and check for leaks. if there is no leak then go ahed and start your engine.

Will not start no only turns over, there is a gas smell, could a fuse or should I replace the coil? what else should I check before replacing coil? thank you in advance

I had the same problem, check your O-rings on your fuel injectors and make sure your fuel injectors are clear of any blockages. With age and low grade fuel, heat and lack of fuel injector treatments can cause them to wear out. Also sometimes the fuel injectors can be cleaned even if they are blocked but replacing the O-rings is a much cheaper solution.

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have 13 to 13.5psi, anything other then that will give you problems in the GM TBI. If the pressure is bad, then you may have to replace the fuel pressure regulator at the bottom of the TB. 
Good luck and keep me posted.

1987 Jeeps starts right up but stalls after 2 seconds

Check the alternator and see what charging voltage is... anything over 14.3 volts running should be suspect. If voltage is too high, it is possible that the computer is shutting down the engine to protect itself. I don't see any connection between the fuel tank problem though, unless while doing pump, someone accidentally grounded a hot lead and didn't think any damage had been done. This makes some sense, because the battery alone will lonly put out from 12-13volts, which go lower without alternator, till it reaches a point where voltage is insufficient to operate the ignition system. This is a "shot in the dark" and will likely lower my "rating" but I don't care about that... Try checking this... at least it points you in some direction rather than flailing around!!!
good luck
