Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Turns over but doesn't start
Hi, I have a chevy 1999 silverado 1500 4.3 v6. I just replaced the fuel pump, new fuel filter and a sensor up by the injectors/carb., and still at times it wouldn't start. It would turn over but not start, a gas issue and maybe when it was cold. So I replaced the fuel pressure regulator. Well I can't get the metal gas lines to stay in place when I reinstall them back into the top of the spider assembly unit. I did notice there is a plastic sleeve and a metal washer and 2 o-rings inside the fuel port where the metal fuel line are inserted.
What is the proper way to install those 2 metal fuel line into the fuel ports on the top of the spider assembly unit? Plus how do I get those 2 plastic sleeves out of the fuel port they are down in there tight! Thanks.. Also there is a retainer clip that holds the lines down but it doesn't hold them down enough yet in the my case cause they leak fuel when I start the truck up.

You will need to do a fuel pump pressure leak-down test, the pump must not loose more than 5 PSI overnight, u will need a cheap fuel pressure test guage, the test port is on the fuel supply rail to the injectors on the intake manifold, it looks like a tire valve but metal with a plastic cap on it, u may be able to borrow this guage from Kragen, Autozone or a parts store like them, if not they are very cheap, less than $20 US. Run the engine with the test guage hooked up, turn off the engine and then check it in an hour or so, if it drops more than 5 PSI then u will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank. One note make sure the connection for the guage is tight with no leakage or the test is invalid. Please rate this solution.
