If you had a strong stream of gas shooting out then you may have an fuel injector problem. Possibly a clogged injector or bad injector.If the stream of gas was weak replace fuel filter first and test again.If problem persists check pump fuse then replace pump. sorry for miss reading your post.

I have a 1996 deville. I have replaced the in tank fuel pump and can hear run for a minute but I cant get fuel to the rail I disconected the lines and nothing still.

Yes it could.
Sometimes you have to jumper the pump relay to get it to run long enough to get the air out of the system and the new pump primed.

1993 cadillac deville when i start it it dies unless i push the gas its not fuel pump or filter i just replaced them

It could be the throttle position sensor, mass air flow or map sensor, weak fuel injector, bad spark plugs, or a number of other issues. If the check engine light is on, getting it pulled may further direct you. Goodluck.

My 1999 cadillac deville ran out of gas i put gas back in it but it just turn over it want start can somebody tell me why

How much gas did you put in? You should put in at least 3 gallons, and turn on the ignition switch, but don't turn it to start, let it sit for about 20 seconds to 'prime' the injectors/lines. Try to start it then. If you still cannot get it to start, check the injector rails for gas, there is what looks like a tire valve on top of the engine with a light green, plastic cap.Turn the key on and, with a rag thrown over the valve push in the pin in the center-you should get a healthy stream of gas out of it (use the rag to protect yourself from the spray. No spray? Either a clogged fuel filter, bad fuel regulator, the 'sock' filter in the tank is clogged, or the fuel pump is history. Running a tank low or out of fuel is real bad, because the fuel acts to cool a fuel pump. If it overheated badly while empty, you might have cooked it.

Fuel problem 1998 cadillac deville

actually it is a theft system problem. the car is acting as if it were stolen and was ran until it was out of gas. the system just needs to be cleared and the car will start right up.

1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!

First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.
