    It would probably be easier to post in one of the other tech forums, since this one is used for GM Customer Service issues.

    Have you checked to see if the fuel pump is engaging when you turn the key to the on position without starting it? That's the first thing I would do. If you don't hear it engage, then it could be bad or you could have a bad fuel pump relay.

    I need to know which 4cyl motor since the 2001 model is when they switched from the iron duke to the eco tech, and there were HUGE problems with the 2001-2002 eco tech 2.2L and the 2.4L really wasnt much better.

    Also you will want to check the fuel pressure etc.
