The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start on Chevrolet G Series Van (G20)

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

1994 Chevrolet G Series Van (G20) - 5.0L V8 250,000 mi,
Replaced twice fuel pump, second time including fuel filter (garage had neglected this the first time, perhaps due to difficulty removing it). Car would work until turned off and then would not start for hours until cooled down. Also stalled a couple of times for hours.
1995 Chevrolet G Series Van (G20) - 5.7L V8 180,500 mi,
The engine will start with the help of starter fluid, but it will shut off immediately. Do not hear the fuel pump kicking on. Also the gas gauge stopped working completely. We thought we just ran out of gas, but we got gas and it did not fix the problem.
