I am getting power to the fuel pump and I can hear it turn on when I cycle the key, however I am not getting fuel to the fuel filter or the fuel rail.

Sorry we didn't mean to offend you but these are valid questions if the fuel pump is running but no fuel is coming out there can only be two things wrong, we apologize. The fuel pump is bad.

Here is an idea for what you are in for when replacing the pump

Let me know how it goes

Hey Baron,

When it doesn't start let see if it has fuel pressure, here is a guide, also did your replace the pump with an AC Delco unit?

Here are the guide to check for fuel pressure and spark, lets try to isolate the system that is failing.

Let me know what you find
