fuel pump stopped working but when we test it directly to a jumper wire from the battery it would work.then we put it back into the car it would work for about twenty minutes and quit
I have a 2000 ZR2, I was driving it and it just stopped running on me, it turns over just fine, but won't start. So I had it towed home, I noticed that the fuel pump wasn't kicking on, so changed the fuel pump, I put a new fuel filter on it, I changed the oil pressure switch, someone said that if the oil pressure switch goes out it would cut power to pump. I have tried everything I can think of. If I run a hot wire to the pump from battery it will kick on and run, but I can't get any power to the pump, I checked the wires with a voltage tester, I have power to the sending unit, my gas have works fine, but still no power to pump itself, does anyone have any suggestions that I haven't tried please?

Parked truck in yard yesterday and went to get into and move today. It just kept spinning. Seemed like it wanted to start, but would not start. My neighbor is a GM mechanic so he will take a look at it this weekend.
I have had the problem of the car cranking and not starting. Mechanic said it was the fuel pump replaced it work for a week. Replaced again worked for 2 years. Replaced again, worked for a week and now shows problems with starting again. Mechanic has not seen it before.

Sometimes it'll start right up but most times it'll just turn over and turn over. As soon as i go to crank it again right after it just turned over, it'll start right up. Almost like you had to prime it like you have to do to diesel
