    We are having the same problem. The fuel pump was replaced but the truck still won't start. The gas is not pumping at all.

I had this problem as well. turned out being a problem in the wiring harness that plugs into the top of the pump. I cut in an access panel in the bed of the truck over the pump for ease of installation. the bad part is the wiring harness isn't cheap either ($120).

I take my bed off. Its eight bolts and the fuel pump is easy... I just support my bed with a long 2*4. Its very easy to do!

Well does your fuel pump kick on when you turn the key if so check the spark plugs and wires if not check the relay to your pump or check the fuze and see if it is blown or getting any power to it

For the 1998 s10 theres no fuelpump switch, there is a fuelpump relay. the relay is in the engine compartment inside the fuse/relay box. the relay will be labeled on the inside cover of the fuse/relay box cover. besides the relay the only other problem for a fuelpump not working on these trucks is the fuelpump is bad or the wiring connector to the pump is bad.

98 s10 pickup hard to start **** when it dose it idles fine u hit the gas it dies its got an new fulepump n filter and cam n cranksensor plugs n wiers and map n tps sensor and i made sher i got 12v to the...

Does it sound like it is flooding or is it a fuel deporvation problem? From your limited description of the problem it sounds more like a fuel deporvation issue which means the fuel pump/filter/gas line. Did you check to make sure that you are getting good fuel flow and pressure from the fuel pump? Or did you just change them and not run a test?

It will crank but does not start i changed the fuel filter and still it will not start i have a 1998 v6 chevy s10 pickup

Check to make sure it is getting fire. You can also hook a pressure gage to the fuel check valve should be near the fuel rail to see if you are getting a good constant fuel pressure. usually fuel problems will let the truck start but not stay running unless you are getting no fuel at all if thats the case it usually means your fuel punp is not working. with your key turned on your fuel pump should be running you can just bleed the check valve to see if you are getting any fuel pressure at all if you are getting none check the fuses and see if you are getting any power to the fuel pump if the fuse is blown then you can try to replace it if it blows again the fuel pump is bad or you have a short somewhere most likely.

My 99 s 10 WONT START and i CANT FIX IT !!!! help plz

Have you checked your fuses? the only thing that comes to mind is ignition coil, This part is what supplies the distributor with energy to fire the spark plugs which seems to be your problem.

Fuel stopped working, no fire to spark plugs

When I hear no fuel or fire I always think of ignition module first. The moudule tells the coil when to fire, and if you don't have fire at the plugs then the fuel pump won't run due to saftey issue. Take your module in to parts store and they will test for free.

97 s10 blazer cuts out and loses power while driving.

Had the same problem with by 1998 S10 a couple years ago. Changed fuel filter?? didn't work. Changed the fuel pump?? didn't work. Changed the fuel pressure regulator?? didn't work.

I was about to the end of my rope when I put a timing light on it and it showed firing on cylinders more then once a cycle. Turns out my distributor cap was bad and spark was jumping between contacts. When a spark is spread out over more then one cylinder, it doesn't fire correctly and that is causing it to bog out. Simple and a lot cheaper then all the other fixes I tried. Crank sensor was my next option though.
