It was replaced about 10 years ago by GM, less than 10,000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

All new filters, new fuel pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I like to replace the fuel line from filter housing to pump with a piece of surgical tubing. It can be a permanent replacement, and the reason for it is so you can easily see if air is being pushed into the injection pump. This engine does not tolerate air in the fuel, for the concern you're talking about, I'd want to know if there is an air leak in one of the lines that's allowing bubbles to enter the injection pump and disrupt fuel flow.
