if replaced fuel filter... bad fuel pump and/or fuel pump relay. i have seen clogged filter cause a pump to short and also a fuel pump relay to become defective. on these gm products. i suggest to replace both, should be cheap... its a gm


fuel pump is working fine. relay is also good what else should i check?


just replaced the distributor cap and rotor both looked bad. it almost started.
