What is the fuel pressure under a load? try disconnecting the MAF sensor if the fuel press is ok, if the MAF is bad the engine will run better.

1996 suburban just died on road has spark at the plugs i poured some fuel down the throttle body and it would not start what could be the problem? thank


Timing belt slipped. You'll still have spark and fuel, but it will not start. If you had a timing light, you'd probably find that it is off. Happened to me last year. . .

I have a 95 GMC suburban and my husband was on his way home and it died on him. it has gas in it and tries to turn over but wont start. what could it be?


What your going to have to do is have the fuel pressure checked.The pressure has to be 9-13 psi.If you have the 5.7 engine.If it is a 7.4 then it has to be 26-32 psi.If you don`t have a pressure tester then try tapping on the bottom of the fuel tank and if it starts then replace the fuel pump.If this is good then check for spark at the spark plugs.Let me know what you find.Good luck.

1996 GMC Suburban - Quit Running While Driving, Will Not Start


Listen at the back by the fuel tank for a 1 to 2 second prime cycle whirr from the tank when turning the key to run position after it has been off for at least 10 seconds.
No noise means no running pump.
....and no noise means.....
Most likely it will need a new fuel pump....80%
Fuel pump relay 10%
Fuse or bad wiring 10%

The quick fix to get home is to crank the truck to create oil pressure to fire the pump......and while cranking WHACK the tank hard with a 2by4 or something like that....to jar the pump..... and it may start running long enough to get it somewhere to be repaired.
This works 60% of the time on a dead pump.

If you do hear a whirrr.....you most likely need a ignition module or crank or dist pickup.

Hesitation while exceleration


Have these things checked for #1:
Spark plug
plug wire
#1 fuel injector
and the throttle position sensor, also have a fuel pressure test done, especially for the hesitation.
