Have you verified the new fuel pump is holding the correct pressure? You need to see 55 to 60 PSI and the pressure under load should not drop below 55 PSI.

Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay so its holding properly at 55 PSI?

Has the computer system been scanned and if so are there any fault code set?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no I have not scanned the computer
Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay if you are sure the fuel pressure is okay then that would be the next steps.
