Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Car will turn but not fire up. Have checked fuel pump, filters,fuses,pins and sockets on Relay. Fuel is going through the pipes fine but still will not start. Checked Oil as check Gage sign is showing. Temperture is normal also. Battery is not being drained, Have also checked the seals on the fuel pipes.
Car has been sitting for a while as someone borrowed it and said it just spluttered to a halt.
Petrol Gage shows half a tank but there was no gas, have put 20 litres in. Battry has also been charged,
What else would you suggest could be the issue.
I believe that you have throttle body injection (TBI) Take off the air cleaner and have someone crank the engine look at the injectors and see if fuel is seen..Do you or have you smelled fuel when you were recently attempting to start truck???? if so this sounds like you are not getting spark....if you havent smelled fuel try priming TBI with gas and see if the truck fires...If so you know that problem lies in fuel delivery... On TBI systems it is very important that a conicle spray pattern is delivered by injectors for proper ignition if injector drips fuel into TBI this could cause a no start condition...To see if spray pattern is correct you can use a timing light if available...Hook it up as normal (red positive post and black negative post and pick-up on #1 spark plug wire) point light at injector and have assistant crank engine light allows visibility to spray pattern.....also check the fuel pressure regulator and vacuum lines....Hope this helped you..let me know if I can help anyfurther....Good Luck!!!!
