CHEVY FUEL PUMP

1989 Chevrolet Truck

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Chevy Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 176000 miles

I replaced the fuel pump about 2 years ago with a over the counter deal. I don't drive it much however the other day it broke down, had it towed home, put some gas down the carb, and it started and ran for a few secounds, and stalled. Repeated same, results same. I was thinking maby fuel pump shot. Or fuel pump relay. If relay, how do I check. Any help that you can give me would be really appreceiated. Thanks,

Hi: The relay usually is fine. However, the pump is another problem. Before anything, check the fuel pump pressure after the filter and before it. It could be something as simple as the filter or the pump may have gone again.
