Question about 1996 GMC Sonoma
Just recently found my biggest problem with my truck - replacing the Distributor.( instantly starts up), but now I have another problem it won't start and my engine won't turn over. This problem came about after I replaced the Fuel Injectors which had going bad...gas did go into carburator area as I tried to start the truck. How can I fix this problem and get my truck back on the road ?

i had the same problem with my 96 sonoma, just died anywhere at anytime, even happened to shop mechanics. They checked fuel and spark, there was none. Ended up putting a new computer on it and it has not happened again. The computer was not communicating with anything, just be sure that you get new comp. programmed to your vehicle. Had to send mine out and get done

THE INJECTORS ARE PULSED TO GROUND DIRECTLY BY THE ECM...... MAIN COMPUTER... IT COULD BE FLAKY BUT I HAVE FOUND MANY TIMES THAT THE HALL EFFECT SENSOR LOCATED IN THE TOP OF THE DISTRIBITOR GETS INTERMITTANT.... THIS CAUSES LOSS OF SIGNAL TO ECM INTURN LOSS OF SIGNAL OUT OF ECM TO INJECTORS... LET ME KNOW

you say you replaced the fuse, but does the fuse have power? the gray wire at pump should have power when cranking, or for 2 seconds when turning key on. At fuel pump relay, put power onto gray wire, the pump should run if the wiring is good. if it doenst run then ck for power at fuse while power is on gray wire.

Have you tried starting the truck up using Starting Fluid? If it starts and runs for a few seconds, you definitely have a fuel issue, and from the sounds of it you may have faulty injectors or fuel pressure regulator. If the starting fluid doesn't start the engine for a few seconds, you may have a spark, or ignition problem. Let me know what happens when you use Starting Fluid and I will help you out further.
