Is it possible for a bad fuel pump to cause a vehicle to not start? My GMC Jimmy (1993 with 177,500 miles) will start intermittently. For example, it will start and run on some occasions, but, after turning it off, if I go back out only moments later, and sometimes even a couple hours later, it cranks just fine but just refuses to start. I'm hearing from different people it's probably a bad fuel pump that needs replacing due to a possibly bad pulse dampener which is located on the pump assembly. Is that possible for a bad fuel pump to not allow the vehicle to start?
