1995 chevy S10: pickup..a new fuel pump and fuel filter in..runs great

Customer Question

I have a 1995 chevy S10 pickup that I just put a new fuel pump and fuel filter in. It runs great when it starts... The problem is starting it. It will start in the morning and after driving it for about a half an hour and turning it off it will not start without using starting fluid. Had a mechanic buddy of mine look at it and he replaced the O2 sensor and looked at the intake and found one of the injector lines was off and put a new bracket on it and fixed that. Still have the same problem.

even though you have a new fuel need to check the fuel pressure when it wont start and while turning the starter,,these must have no less than 55psi while doing this,,,,it is very common to get a bad new fuel pump for these vortec engines...........i think your new fuel pump is weak still.
