Try the filter first. The fuel pump is usually either dead or alive. Never in between. If the filter doesn't do it, try an auto wrecker and get a mass air flow sensor. Let me know how you make out.

How to change fuel pump in a 2000 Pontiac firebird

If the car starts and is not staying running I do not think it is the fuel pump. It is either your idle air control valve not allowing enough air to get into the engine as they can get clogged pretty easy with carbon. Or it could be your throttle position sensor not functioning correctly. The first one can be cleaned with regular carb cleaner and that may fix the problem,.

Turns over,but wont start.

Did you check base fuel pressure with a gauge before and after replacing the pump ? Is the pump getting power from the relay ?
The fuel filter is under the car and should have been replaced with the pump.

Fuel pump wont stay running will start and run for a wile then dies checked fuel pump ,checked oil switch , but when i hook up a test lite it flashes ..what else can it be

Hey I think your fuel pump is bad I had the same problem on a 96 f150 it would run for about a minute and shut off I replaced fuel pump and it fixed problem one more thing you need to check if it has duel fuel tanks. check the fuel pump on the frame rail this helps pulling fuel up to engine if this pump is bad it will case the in tank pump to over work and shutdown.

I have a 97 blazer and i changed the fuel filter and i can hear the fuel pump turn on but it still wont stay started. i also put some fuel in the carb and it started for about 5 seconds and then it wont...

I would more likely think that the fuel pump is the problem. The regulator bring the pressure down, so the vehicle would run, just rich. Disconnect fuel feed line to see if fuel is reaching the engine. If not the pump is the problem.

The car wont stay running when in the run possion

OK lets start with this..

I am guessing that when you say possion you are meaning you gear selector and when you put it in say drive.

If that is the case.....

Your problem is most likely the fuel pump relay or fuel pump itself.
Start with checking, or have it checked, the fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

If the pressure is low then a fuel pump can be suspect. There are then other test which have to be performed to see where the exact problem is.

Wont stay running

Check all things airflow related. The PCV valve, the air cleaner, the mass airflow sensor and any other filters.

poss. is fuel pressure reg. problem. put a guage on the test port and check press. should be above 35psi. see if it stays running when you spray choke cleaner in the pcv valve steadily while starting. if the engine stays running after a few seconds of running on choke cleaner then probably a bad fuel pump relay cause the oil pressure switch will keep the pump on without the relay when it has good oil pressure.
let me know if ya can do this or if it helps.
