May have been water or debris pulled into the injectors from running low on fuel . I would run it on some short local runs and a few fullness throttle bursts and see how she does . My favorite Chevy and a beautiful car .

It sounds like you may have a cloged fule filter, start with that and then check to see if your fuel pump had gone bad. Most likely it's your fuel filter if it's never been changed. The other common problems is a partial clog to the injectors but i don't think that is the problem here. Good luck

SOURCE: rough idle, cruise control also stopped working

Sounds like you could have gotten some water in your fuel tank from that fill up. Go to a autoparts store and get a product to put in the tank that takes care of water in fuel. Use it when you fill the tank up a few times after and hopefully it goes away. Whenever you can't sustain power in the engine or it runs rough then your cruise control will constantly be shut off because the engine doesn't have the power to keep the speed up and should go away once your engine is running clean again.

Good Luck

even though it is a new pump it doesnt mean that it is putting out the correct pressure the fuel pressure for your truck should be between 9 and 13 lbs... do you have a check engine light on?

1996 chevy impala power steering not working

The easy solution will be the excess fluid has allowed the belt to slip enough and not turn the pump fast enough to enable the steering to work. Make sure the belt as clean and free of the fluid (carb cleaner works great). Turn on the car when you do it so you get even coverage. You can also apply a belt dressing to aid in the belt maintaining "traction". If that is not the problem then you might have burned the pump up from running low or the pump just died at the same time of adding the fluid. Some of pumps can be rebuilt by you for cheaper then the cost of a new one. Just ask the parts store for prices on both.

Have a 96 Blazer Lt V6 it will not start unless I prime it first then it seems to run great, but sometimes I need to reprimer it again after I drive it for a few miles and park it and when I put gas in...

Your temp gauge is wrong, check your fuel filter, may be clogged up, then I would say there is a system leakdown in the fuel system. You may have a pump going bad in the fuel tank.
