Thank you all who read my problem and gave it some thought. Problem was fuel pump, visited alot of web sites and read alot of other net post for similar problems and gave it a shot, needed to be original equipment ($350.) But it worked, aftermarket pumps are not strong enough and will not hold up, replaced my pump with one (aftermarket) a year ago so I took a shot at it and it worked. Hope this helps someone out.
