I have a 98 Camaro. I started it up and let it warm up for about 5 minutes or so then it started cutting out like it was out of gas, the car died and I havent been able to start it since. Any Ideas?

And Yes It Has Gas In It...

check the fuel rail pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. possibly a clogged filter or bad fuel pump

I can push the nob on the fuel rail and nothing comes out, I unhooked my fuel line before the filter and nothing comes out. I have a 99 Camaro and I took the fuel pump off it and put in my 98 and still nothing. I even switched the fuse for fuel pump......Any other ideas?

If there isn't any fuel squirting out when you push the schrader valve in after you have turned the key to the on position, then you have a fuel related issue as to why your car won't start.

When you turn the key, the pump should prime and give you fuel pressure.

Yes I Know Its Fuel Related, Im Just Wondering If I Need To Spend Money On A Pump Or If It Is An Electrical Problem. Im Not Sure Because I Swapped Pumps Already (As Far As I Know It Was Still Good) And Still Nothing, What Fuse Or Fuses Could Cause This, Other Than The Fuel Pump Fuse Of Course.

Not sure, I think there is a fuel pump relay though.

fuel pump may have taken a crap. happened to mine when i ran it out of gas. do u hear the pump priming when u turn the key?

Nope, All I Hear Is A "Click" I ordered a new pump, it should be here today or tomorrow. Ill let you guys know if that fixed it. I just didnt think it would all the sudden go out like that. We'll see...
