Have you sprayed fuel/starting fluid into the engine to see if it starts? You can have fuel pressure but no injector fuel delivery, we call this "pulse"

First check for battery voltage. Then make sure you have a check engine light when the key is in the run position. Make sure the fuel pump relay is good. Check to see if there is power on one side of the injectors, if these wires have a short to voltage or ground the injectors will not funtion properly. In this system the injectors are supplied with constant power and ground controls pulse width. In these blazers and s-trucks PCM ground sees to become an issue. In mine I directly routed the system grounds to a metal body panel under the right side of the dash. In my Blazer I swapped out the motors and converted from and automatic to a manual transmission. And another problem I found was when I lifted the dash to install my clutch pedal, I broke my brake light switch. In an automatic the brake pedal switch interups the ses light circuit. If the PCM dosent sense the ses light on the system cannot ground. Good Luck with it, At the time I had completed my second of four automotive level so it took me a bit to figure it out on my own. Once I took my level 3 (electricl) it sunk in alot quicker. Happy hunting, don't get too pissed off.

Maybe a problem with the theft deterrant system. My Tahoe had a similar intermittant problem and the dealer said there was a fault in the theft system and it would shut off the fuel pump.

This is normally caused by a faulty sending unit located in the tank.The only way to correct this concern is to replace the sending unit assembly.To do this you can either remove the bed to access the fuel tank, or lower the fuel tank itself.It's normally easier to remove the bed if you have a couple buddies...I hope I could help.....

My '97 chevy s-10 won't start

Check to see if the fuel pump runs for a few seconds when you first turn the key to the "run" position. You should be able to hear it if you put your ear to the gas cap while someone turns the key. It will run for 3 or 4 seconds and then stop.
Check for spark. Easiest way it to hook a timing light to any wire and turn the engine over. There are many reasons for no spark. Most common being the coil, sensors, MAF etc.
If the fuel pump isn't running. Check fuses, wires, and finally... change the fuel pump if all else fails. You would be well advised to find one at an auto wrecker if you can. They are expensive.

1996 manual jetta won't start. It won't even crank. There is a whinning noise when I turn the key from the engine but that's it.

Sounds like the starter drive is not fully engaging with the fly wheel... might try to tap firmly on the body of the starter while you turn the key but be careful not to hit the wires... Might get you going enough to get to a garage and have it checked. good luck!

2007 chevy cobalt ls won't start battery good starter good turn key nothing no click nothing all lites work on dash and radio works jumped starter with screwdriver turns. Over but won't start...

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

My 96 Jimmy 1500 xt struggles to start on the first turn of the key. Then starts perfectly every other turn afterwards. Mechanic thinks it might be the coil. I think fuel is ok. Must be spark issue?

Have you replaced your fuel filter lately? If not try it. My friends Chevy will do that same thing and then we change the fuel filter and it's good to go. Also try turning you key on for a few seconds before trying to start it and see if you can hear the fuel pump running. You should hear it run for a few seconds and if not you may have a fuel pump relay or pump acting up. You could also do a fuel pressure test with a pressure gauge when it is cold also.
