The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start on Cadillac DeVille

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.

I just replace the broken wire to the column and replace the starter,and I drove it and now it will turn run a couple seconds and die off I put gas and nothing then I checked the carbarator and no fuel was being passed to the carbarator, so now what do I do replace the fuel filter or fuel pump,can the pump be fixed instead of being replaced?, my friend told me to check the fuel line's they may be pinched some were, what's your recommendation

engine stalled in middle on intersection, coasted into nearby parking lot, it cranks and has spark but won't start. Due to erratic fuel gauge, thought it was out of gasoline, but put couple gallons into it, and still would not start, even though it cranked great. Haven't fixed it yet,
Ran out of gas because sensor fluctuations. Used a gas can (2gallon) four times and filled car up. Car wouldn't crank over, so speculation is either fuel filter of fuel pump. Hoping it's only the fuel filter lol
Replaced fuel pump.

When attempting to accelerate, car would feel as if it shutting down. Pulled over and car shut down. Attempted to start but only would crank.

Engine started cutting out, seemed fuel starved, stalled. I had towed and is currently being serviced, believe fuel pump is bad.

Same issue, car was running fine, I did notice that it would hestitate once every 3 months but thought it was winter and a rough cold start idle. Then spring came and it just died.

if the fuel level gets to low, the fuel pump burns out. car will try to start, but won't turn over.
