My fuel pump seams to work when it wants to. I've rebuilt the throttle body and put it back on and the truck started back up and ran steady. I then saw a leak at the top of the throttle body and shut the truck off. Upon doing this I then removed the housing and found a bad o-ring. I put in another rebuild kit and after doing so tried to start the truck and it wouldn't start.I checked the fuel line and no fuel was pumping out. i checked the inline filter and there was a little gas in the line.

Hi, i recently had my transmission replaced on my 94 cadillac deville, and now my car will not crank. It had been sitting for about a year after it broke down. i chked to make sure the fuel pump is working properly, it was putting out about 38 lbs of pressure so i disconnected the fuel rail and cleaned it out with sme fuel injection/ carb spray.
