Engine won\'t start

Lately my '89 Jimmy has cranked longer than usual but has always started, this morning it ran fine around exept for a lot of hesitation when it was cold at all speeds. I stopped at a store and came back out and it would crank but will not start. Just got it towed to a shop, Fuel pump maybe? Help please!

Check the injectors with a timing light. If they spray like a dome then that isn't the problem.

It sounds more like an ignition thing to me. Since you already had it towed to a shop, why not just let them do it?

Just found out from the shop its the fuel pump, funny though, $70 OEM pump from the dealer and $130 aftermarket from NAPA. I'll go with the dealer this time.
