If you can hear the fuel pump prime upon putting the ignition to on, then fuel pump is fine.

Check your fuel filter. Might be blocked to s**t causing fuel line to take longer to pressurize as well as missing while driving.

I got a brand new fuel pump for sale, $20, all you need is the special tool to open the lid(which i have here somewhere).. Simple task, like changing a air filter...

I second the stripping thing.... I did exactly that, had to cut the pipes, put a frigen holden filter (against all my beliefs), with hose clamps
