Could be fuel pump, fuel pump relay, etc. Need to have this checked out by a mechanic.

Fuel pump. It's a GM.

Definatly sounds like the pump, Try hitting on the bottom of the tank while someone is cranking it, if it starts its the pump.

when your car starts to cut off do the lights and everthying electrical dim any or does it just start sputtering and then die
