Check the timing because if you have fire,fuel and compression it should start so you might want to check the compression also,it should have at 150 psi to run.When checking the compression make sure all sparkplugs are removed and the throttle is wide open.

1978 gmc sierra sbc 350.. problems starting its been sitting for a while. I replaced the mechanical fuel pump but still doesn't run. I can pour gas in the quadrajet carburator and it will turn over and run...


If it runs when you pour fuel in the carburetor, then the problem is that the engine is not receiving fuel. (by the way, be careful, the carburetor may back fire and cause a fire). Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor and place the end of the line in a bucket, then turn the truck over to see if fuel is flowing. If it is a mechanical fuel pump it should pump fuel into the bucket when the battery turns over the engine. If you had a lot of debris pop out of the carburetor, it should be taken off and cleaned. You may have had a bird or something else try and build a nest in it.

Problems starting a 1978 sbc 1500


Can't get any more basic than a sbc, if you have fuel, spark, and compression at the right time it should run.

I have a 1985 gmc sierra classic with the 350 engine been having trouble getting it to start I already put the timing chain on time but wont start it will crank but wont stay on.


There can be several reasons to check and must start by a flow chart fuel line, fuel supply, firing and then the timing. Check the electricals and see if there is firing, check ur firing sequence.

Jeep fires but wont start


What is the year and model ?
You can use a jumper wire to bypass the fuel pump relay to see if it is loosing power or a ground signal from the computer.
The engine has to produce oil pressure for the fuel pump to keep pumping after it starts.
Are you loosing fuel pressure or spark ?

Turns over but wont start.


Start by checking if it's a fuel or fire problem. Take a plug wire off and turn motor over.If there is fire, Take the hose going from the air cleaner to the throtle body off and spray a small amount of carb. cleaner in.If it's a fuel prob.,check the fuel pump relay (under the hood in a black box) (swap the relay out with another relay in the box ) If the relay is o.k., it's probly the fuel pump. If it;s a fireing prob., start with the coil and wires going to the coil.

2000 Chevy Blazer Cranks but wont start...


What about the fuel filter????? Have you changed it out??? If you can spary something like a started fluid, that means it is a fuel problem. My last check, it has to be above 50-psi on the fuel pressure to make it run right. I had 35psi, but whould not get over 30mph or down hill maybe 45mph. Check both filter & pressure, but check pressure with a New fule filter!!!!
