Question about 1996 GMC Suburban

96 chevy 1500 suburban wont start

I have a 96 chevy 1500 suburban with the 5.7L and I have good spark good fuel pressure but it wont fire. Since we had the battery disconnected to replace the fuel pump it is not throwing any codes and I only have a reader and not a scanner I cant put it into a test mode to cycle everything to see what codes if any are comming up. It will fire if a starting fluid is used but wont run on its own power.

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

I have a 96 chevy 1500 and it is back fireing


If it runs well when you get into the gas pedal then when the rpms come down to normal about 2500 and it starts back firing then its your distributor the gear that ride in the oil pump slot is too sloppy and it doesn't know where the advance needs to be. Good luck
