Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Can you hear the fuel pump run when you initially turn the key to on, I think they only run for about 5 seconds if the engine doesn't start immediately.
I think you have a fuel line full of air, but there is the chance you may have damaged the pump, because these are cooled by the fuel running thru them.
Don't know how deep you want to get, but there is a "shrader valve" on the fuel rail on the front right side (looks like a tire valve stem cap). Should be under the VORTEC shroud. You could hold this open, (like letting air out of a tire) while someone turned your ignition to on until fuel comes out. Once you see fuel, cranking it normally should be able to start the truck after one or two tries.
That should bleed the air out of the line quickly. Be very careful as you are dealing with flammible gasoline. Hold a rag over it so you don't get sprayed.
A fire extinguisher nearby would not hurt.
