Do you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn key to run if so do a fuel pressure check and also check if the injectors are pulsing-

If not check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay.

1) How do I know if the injectors are pulsing on a 1995 Buick Reviera?

2) Where is its' fuel pump? In the fuel tank? Or elsewhere?

3) No blown fuses. Relay is ok. Fresh fuel. No pressure check yet on fuel.

Q1-The injectors should be clicking and spraying fuel in a cone shape pattern when the engine is cranking over.

Q2-It's in the fuel tank.

Q3-Do a fuel pressure check to rule out the fuel pump.
