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?
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

Happened shortly after I purchased truck used. Lost power and had to be towed. Fuel pump needed to be replaced
Strong turn over, cant hear fuel pump kick on in "key on" position and won't start. Replaced fuel pump and filter. On the road again!
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
Changed both and problem is still their
replaced pump
Fuel flow problem. Replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel line.
Truck stopped in driveway not to go again. Towed to dealership and fuel pump is culprit.
