Fuel system repair

Around 150,000 miles on the odometer the van was having a hard time starting smoothly into an idle. It would sputter and stall unless I stomped on the gas to keep it revved up. 
Some internet searches and welcome advice on a chevytalk.org thread suggested my fuel pump was to blame. I bought a fuel pressure gauge, tested the system and it was lower than recommended. 

Replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter fixed the problem. I had to remove the gas tank to get access to the fuel pump so it took me an afternoon.
