    Default Starving for Fuel

    My wife's 1999 Suburban shut off on her this morning while on the highway coming home from the grocery store. The truck will crank, but will not turn over. I attempted the least expensive fix first in replacing the fuel pump relay, negative results though. I do not hear the fuel pump prime up when the ignition is first turned on so I reckon it is the fuel pump. Any other ideas?

    hit the bottome of the tank with a rubber/plastic mallot right near the center while somone is cranking the engine. if it fires up then its deff the fuel pump. if it doesnt... could still be a fuel pump.
