You have already over replaced. Wet plugs are either too cold, too late fire or bad cylinder compression. Hook a timing light to the plug in question. If the light won't fire, the plug is too cold. Check number one at TDC to see if firing at correct time. If this is helpful, please post as such or go live and I can tell you more, faster

    Have you checked the codes for direction. One thing to be very aware of is codes don't mean replace parts, it means something isn't working right. Flat tires would give a check engine of a tranny problem if it won't move very fast but you wouldn't replace the tranny. Please post as helpful or go live chat for faster answers. TY

Hi William, The fuel pump pressure is correct but the fault reading you followed means low voltage signal into the TPS. Seems you may have replaced the wrong part? I would think that the problem is with the mass air flow sensor or the ECU as that is where the signal comes from. Regards John

1991 chevy 454 7.4 wont idle, floods out after a few seconds,replaced everything from fuel pump to tbi presure reg,injectors.cap,rotor,wirers,coil. plugs.i am a member an pay every month to get the r

Have you actually checked the fuel pressure ? The return line could be blocked or one of the injectors could be shorted to ground.
The computer grounds the injectors to regulate "on" time. If one of the injectors is shorted to ground both will be open full no matter what the computer does. And the computer can cause the short.
You can check the circuits with a meter.
If the temp sensor had failed and was telling the computer it was 30 below zero you should get a check engine light. But it would cause the injectors to be very rich.

97 tahoe pressure reg keeps running

Are you sure it's the fuel pump your hearing and not the self leveling shock's in the back of the tahoe if you have that option. No fuel should be pumping in to your cyls because of the injector's. Unless there bad. Good luck
