    when my 97 GMC 5.7L K2500 sits for a couple of weeks without being started, it is really hard to start. Last week it would not start. I replaced cap, rotor, wires, and plugs. Still no start. I am not a great mechanic and I am stuck. Where do I look now?

40 psi on a 5.7 vortec isn't enough. It's way too low. You need between 55 and 65 psi to run right. To be certain, you could spray starter fluid into the intake and if it starts, fuel is your problem and replace the pump or filter. A lot of times its the filter so keep that in mind too.

94 gmc sierra 4.3 v6 manual, won't turn over, can hear fuel pump start when accessories turned on..won't fire, girl who needs help


The first thing I would check is fuel pressure. This type of fuel injection requires a minimum fuel pressure in order to operate. If fuel pressure is as little as one psi below minimum the vehicle will not start. You can try squirting a couple of shots of carb spray into the air snorkel while somebody cranks the engine over. If the engine starts and then dies you now you fpdeffinetely have a fuel issue. If the engine still won't start check for spark. Let me know what you find. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

What is the correct fuel psi for a 97 suburban


62psi keyed up and no less than 52psi in the run position. It will be hard to start with any less fuel pressure. Also the fuel pressure should not drop off quickly.
