I replaced the fuel pump on my 1989 S-10 Blazer this year. Only started with
ether. And finally died for real one day.
Hint: When it dies, pop the hood and give it a snort of ether. If it fires
right up (for a moment) your problem is fuel. If it stays dead, your problem
is not fuel.
Wonder if you have a timing belt or chain?
