    Are you sure that you had the plug wires on in the correct order? If you have a couple of them switched and it fires at the wrong time it can stop the engine from turning momentarily.

My 1996 GMC Suburban is flooded, how do I get it to start?

Replace the sparkplugs or try holding the gas pedal to the floor and try to start but keep pedal to floor until engine starts and revs, this may take a few trys, dont crank more than 10 to 15 seconds, if this doesnt work then replace the plugs,

1992 GMC Suburban wont start. Died at a stop sign. Acting like its outa gas. It not. Put gas in carb to start er up and it ran for a block then died again. Listened to fuel pump when I turned on the...

Have the crank shaft sensor check out. This is a beginning of the problem. After that it will never be able to start since the ECM doesn't know what the position of the piston reported through the crankshaft sensor to turn on the proper ignition. Good luck.
