Remove Your Air Filter, If You See A Liquid Squirt or bubble up, Or smell gas, then its the plugs

What is the problem? Why are you limiting the problem to those 2 areas of concern?

If it is the electronic fuel pump that is the problem you will not hear the fuel pump humm as you turn the key in the ignition. Replace the fuel pump which is located inside the gas tank.

after you have replace the pump and it doesn't humm what else could be the problem

the fuel pump could still humm but it could be weak. there is a pressure valve on the fuel line behind the intake. put a pressure tester on it. if it is over 45 lbs. then your fuel pump is ok.

The fuel pump will not come on. Of course this could be a blown fuse or the pump itself has failed. Check the fuse and if it is good then install a new relay to see if that solves the problem. If not the pump is bad.

Problem could be one of many things. First and foremost is the intertia switch. Check the fuel pump inertia switch (in trunk mounted to driver side trunk arm) to make sure its not kicked. If the problem is not there, than either the fuel pump relay is bad or there is a bad wiring connection in the circuit.

99 Chevy Tahoe i try to start it but no luck it just cranks and cranks its getting fuel to engine there is spark from the plugs and i also tried spraying starter fluid into the injecter?

A lot of people will tell you that it's the fuel pump which is inside of the fuel tank. If you change that and it still wont start then it is the fuel pump wiring harness. 99% of the time this is what it usually is. The wiring harness plugs in to the top of the fuel pump. I would just change both while you have the fuel tank down to save yourself time. You can get both at any auto parts store. You have fuel at the engine and there is spark from the plugs? If you have fuel, air, spark and it is in time, it has to run. You have spark in the wire, have you pulled the plugs and checked them. They may be fouled or worn out. Timing could be off, but it should at least try to start, backfire or something. Check the plugs and get back to me if that isn't it.

Have the fuel pressure checked. If the pump is noisy it is failing. do not forget to replace the fuel filter. A clogged fuel filter will appear as low fuel pressure, and overwork the pump.

If you hear the fuel pump running, then start by replacing the fuel filter. If you don't hear the pump, check the fuse. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is good or not. It can also be a fuel pump relay or in rare instances a defective ECU.
