Tries to start but can't. Mechanic said probably fuel pump. To extend the life, he suggested turn the key on but don't start and count to 6; turn key off; turn key on for count of 6 and then start and it cranks right up. Depends on how bad it is as to how long this will work. Hope it gets me to Jan or Feb. 2015!!

I have 3.8 ltr.The Car was running well until I stopped for 15 Minutes to get some Grouceries.I get back in the car it was starting and stalled,i tried a few times with no result.
My 99 Chevy Lumina is actually a 3.8L V6. Recently had fuel pump module- not any assembly parts like the harness and ect-replaced. Car ran normal and started normal but while driving it would stall at stops. After a while the car wouldn't start unless I wiggled the fuel pump harness wires under car near where connector to pump is located. It worked temporarily beings now it wont start at all. The harness connector to pump is a discontinued gm part so I couldn't buy a new one anywhere. Not sure where to go from here and desperately need help to get my car running please!
