I had this happen. When the fuel pump goes back the first indication is a stutter in the engine. The stutter will increase until the CHECK ENGINE light illuminates. Then the performance will deteriorate rapidily until the engine stalls. It will only crank after that but will not fire. It costs about $850 to have the dealer do this job. There is more than just the fuel pump involved. Scroll through the old questions on Caprice and I posted something else on this a while ago. vbd
