It may be a stuck solenoid.
Under the hood, you should find a black box with a removeable top.
It will have lots of fuses of different colors and sizes.
Also there will be some little black cubes about one inch square.
If you flip the lid of th fuse box over, you should see a diagram of the stuff in there.
The little black cubes are solenoids. One will be the fuel pump solenoid.
Unplug it and look for burned contacts of a bad burned smell.
You may be able so take out another solenoid near it to test the one for the fuel pump.
Switch them out and try the engine.
If there is no change, then that is not the problem.
Just put everything back.
But it may very well expose a stuck solenoid. They are cheap at any auto parts store.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay for a 1994 Chevy Truck WT1500

The Fuel Pump Relay is located in the Glove Box under a little cover on the upper left side. The Fuel Control Relay is the left relay and The Fuel Pump Relay is the right. To test these relays, swap them and then try to start the vehicle, or blow the horn. If the horn blows then use that relay for the pump and you may at least drive the vehicle where needed! If the vehicle starts, then replace them as a pair.

Check your connections. did you run the fuel pump wiring under the drivers side door sash like GM did?.. if so check for nicks in the wire or bending or cracks.. this happens.. happened to me. check your fuel pressure. 40 dollar part at an auto store. If its below 59 PSI it wont work. And blazers are very intolerable to low fuel pressure. Also try taking the negative post off your battery for a little while and then putting it back on and if you can get it started again drive around (if its safe and running decent) for at least 30 minutes to get your car computer system acclimated to a new functioning part. Did you check the fuel filter?. rule of thumb when a pump goes change the filter its always the last thing people expect because we all jump to catastrophic engine failure at the first no start moment. lol.
Make sure that all your ducks are in get my drift.. Air oxygen fuel thats the mixture you need to check all those vital parts. before pulling your head off.

SOURCE: my fuel gauge was not

YES THERE IS A FUEL PUMP FUSE IN THE FUSE PANEL. I THINK HE MAY HAVE JUMPED A HOT WIRE AND GROUNDED IT INSTEAD OF A GROUND WIRE. HOPE THIS HELPS. GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: 93 Chevy Lumina Van Acts Like It's Out Of Gas

Your battery may be at it's very very end of it's life or is already in the battery heaven and no boosting is going to bring it back. Start with replacing the battery, if the money is tight do what i do and go to the Salvage Yard. The average price there for a good battery is $15,00 to $35.00, depends on the yard. Got mine for $15.00 and it may need to be replaced now, it's been almost 4 years. You want to pick one up that has the highest cold cranking amp (CCA) that you can fit in your car and there is date of service on the battery you want to look for. A bad Battery will cause your engine to stall if it's no longer holding a charge. Start with that and then we can worry about the harder things. Note: if the Volt drops less then 10.5 volts, the ECM will shut down the engine. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted.

'92 chevy lumina van running rough after fuel pump replacement


mass airflow sensors don't have a vacuum line, you sure you don't mean the EGR valve? if it was the regulator i doubt it would run good or make much of a difference unplugging the vacuum line, take a reading of the fuel pressure, if it starts to drop while the van is running you have a bad regulator.

1994 chevy lumina van. It will start and idle but stalls when gas


Try replacing the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem in my truck. It would start and run for a bit but as soon as you let off of the pedal, it would die. Try it and see if it works.
