Just replaced fuel pump car starts runs a few seconds then dies what do I check

My car drives normal then it starts to stall and shuts off. Immediately I restart it and it has strong gas smell threw out the car like it is dumping to much gas and it runs rough. I turn it off let it sit for 2 mins and it runs fine for a couple of miles. I took it in too the shop and they said the ECM is not reading the car.

When first started I need to wait a minute for it to drop into reverse. Until I do that it will slip in drive. Always slips in overdrive.

There's a few times ive been running my car(1991 buick regal) with low gas and ive actually ran out of gas a couple times. I used my car to go to the store, a couple hrs later i tried to use it again and it wouldnt start. I think (hoping) its just missing something small... i only had less then a quarter tank of gas so i figure thats not enough. I put $20 worth of gas with a gas tank and it still wont start.

Clarification: manually locking or unlocking doors, be it by key or by hand from inside the car is difficult regardless of weather.

No indication from temp gauge, engine spitting coolant from behind the alarm at the back of engine along the firewall. Overflow had fluid, radiator had fluid. Could hear it bubbling!

The blower motor does not work. Could it be the switch or a fuse? It was intermittent but now doesn't come on at all.

Excess hard press on brake to stop car.

It cuts off after maybe 15 mins of driving. Then takes an hr or more to restart. Could this be a tension belt problem or something else. Please help cause I'm clueless.

Vehicle stalls out and is hard to keep cranked. Sometimes I have to keep the accelerator slightly engaged to keep vehicle from stalling. I have replaced the throttle positioning sensor. Also the engine has a rattle. Sounds as if the engine is full of pebbles when it is running. What is the possible cause?

could it be the switch and if it is where is it located

We have replaced the ignition and the crank sensor. This is the 5th crank sensor put in this car in last few months

i know we aren't suppose to do it.i have done it on older models. know u can't on newer cars.this guy is realy short on money. and other things are wrong with it.
