Fuel pressure test. First thing to do is replace the fuel filter. If that does not help, then test the fuel pump with a fuel pressure tester. If you can't hear it run for a few seconds when the key is turned on, either the pump is bad, or the fuse is blown, or the fuel pump relay is defective. Even if you hear it running, it may be so weak as not to work properly.
Do a fuel flow and a fuel pressure test to determine if it is a plugged fuel filter or a faulty fuel pump. Either one will require you to replace the fuel pump module assembly.
Electric fuel pump? then yes. You got to hook up power from a batter to pos side and you can test, however not a good idea to run to long with no gasoline going through it.
well the question is a bit vague but I'll try. Assuming that the battery isn't dead and the starter is cranking fine my first thought would be your fuel pump is shot Chevy fuel pumps are notorious for failure even with low miles I had to replace my brothers fuel pump on his 96 Chevy and it only had 58,000 miles on it. But to know for sure wether the pump is bad or not you will have to do a fuel pressure test. You can test the fuel pressure by getting a fuel pressure gauge and attaching it to the test port on the fuel rail and watching the gauge as somebody tries to crank it over if the gauge reads beetween 40 and 60 PSI then the pump is good if not then replace the pump most likely if pump is bad you will get a reading of 0 to 5 PSI. Hopefully this helps.
If You Have A Car With A Fuel Injection System On It And The Fuel Pump Is Electric, Located In The Tank. Turn The Key On And OFF. Five Or Six Times, But Don`t Try To Start Car When Doing This. In Doing This It Will Allow The Fuel Pump To Run And Fill Fuel Line. Next There Should Be A Pressure Test Port Located In The Fuel Rail On top Of The Engine. Looks Like A Tire Valve. After Doing The Thing With The Fuel Pump, By Way Of The Ignition. Use A Small Screwdriver & Push In On Valve In The Test Port Fuel & Air Will Come Out. If You Do Not Get Fuel Like A Good Spray From Test Port. 1. You May Be Out Of Gas 2. Your Fuel Pump May Be Bad 3. Your Fuse May Be Bad, Or Bad Relay. Have A GOOD MECHANIC LOOK AT THIS FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK
Fuel pump pressure test.
First off check the fuel pump fuse to make sure it is not blown. The best thing to do is just replaced the relay to make sure that is not the problem. If you can hear the pump run with the ignition to the on position, engine not running then it may be good. But it is possible the pump is running and not pumping fuel. A fuel pressure test at the fuel rail will verify the condition of the pump.

You can test your automotive mechanical fuel pump with a diagnostic tester. The diagnostic tester can tell if the fuel pump is operating properly.
Test for a broken wire between the fuel pump and power distribution box. Check for bad connectors also.

Where is the fuel pump fuse and relay on 1994 BMW 525i and how can I test to see why my fuel pump won't work
No noise from pump when you turn the key, runnability(starving for fuel) problems, dies out, no start, power to pump (check with test light ) but pump won't pump. The car won't start properly.
A GOOD FUEL PUMP PRESSURE IS NEEDED
