Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
I have a 1996 C1500 4.3L that quit running so I replaced the fuel pump assy and filter since I could not hear the pump run. I then could not get it to start so I checked for fuel coming from the injectors and found none. I replaced theSPCI fuel injector spider with the MFI and it would start but run for no more than 10 seconds. I replaced the fuel pump relay and bought a fuel pressure gauge but could only get a reading of a few pounds when the pump ran to prime. I then tried a jumper wire on the oil pressure/fuel pump circuit but no change. I don't think the pump runs after priming but don't know where to look next. 1996 S-10 4x4 intermittent slugishness, changed fuel filter which was horribly clogged. Truck started hard then and leaked coolant; I was told it was because I used starting fluid, and the OEM gaskets sre plastic. Replaced the top end gaskets and fuel delivery "spider", and afterward, no fuel presssure on the rail. Could hear the fuel pump relay engage, but no start. Replaced the fuel pump and nothing.
Was there fuel pressure before you changed everything? It could also be the pressure regulator sticking or bad. When you crank it over and let off the key you should hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds and then shut off. If it is doing that then I would be looking to see if you have likes hooked up wrong at the back of the engine or try replacing the pressure regulator.
