Check fuel pressure. Get a gauge from local parts store if you dont have one. They rent em. Should be at 60 psi to start i believe. If its not it could be a weak or bad pump. Id start with that first. Post FP results when done. Good luck.

Engine light won't come on with the pump. I went through 3 pumps on mine. Then I put a Delco back in and no more problems. It had an aftermarket, I replaced it with 2 aftermarkets. They would work good for a while, then the pressure would drop off. None of mine lasted that long though. You could start it with gas down the TB, but it would only run a few minutes. think the longest was 20min. Put the new factory pump in and has been running strong for 2 years.
