Try putting a dab of solder on each one of the contacts on the fuel pump relay. i had a similiar situation where the relay contacts in the fuse box got strectched out over time so i put a dab of solder on each terminal to beef the contacts up and it worked perfectly. i think this will work because if the mechanic put a wire jumper in the contacts then electrical it is fine.

97 chevy 4x4 5.0 wont accelerate when given gas

You need to hook up a fuel pressure gauge to see what your pressure is. You should have around 45-50 psi. If it is low, possible fuel filter of fuel pump. If it is ok, a plugged exhaust system could be the blame.

Seem like your fuel pump can't keep up the pressure when engine is started. If you have a pressure regulator that isn't into the pump assembly i would change it if not then your going to need a new fuel pump assembly.

Will turn over but will not start

1999 sub,
turns over but will not start. Somewhat solved: there is a fuel line on the air cleaner side that is somewhat stomped up. When the hose is blown in and then reinserted, the truck starts. It will run for awhile but eventually it will clog again. Good luck.
