hey guys new to the fourm i just recently bought a 1994 chevy silverado it ran perfect started first turn of the key and everything but it need a radio so i installed a aftermarket radio and it started fine and ran the same so one day i get there and the battery was dead so i jumped it and it started right away so i let it run for a bit to charge and i figured i would shut it off to see if it would start again so i shut it off and tried to start it and it cranked but wouldnt run so i figured it was out of gas so i whent and bought 30 dollars worth of gas and still it wouldnt start and the battery was dead again so i figured the radio was dranining the battery so i disconnected it and charged the battery and still nothing so i figured either the fuel pump relay or fuse was shot so i replaced the fuse and the the relay and still nothing so im guessing it is the fuel pump but im not 100% sure is there anyway that i can test the pump or something because i really dont want spend 185 bucks if i dont have to any help will be greatly appriciated thanks

I think that model has a fuel filter on the frame if so pull the line of the filter and see if the pump is working if it is change the filter. Had a 92 that the filter stoped up so bad it wouldn't run and had changed the pump before I found out it was the filter.
