    It has no spark.....fuel is being sprayed into TB. All fuses are good under steering wheel. I have 12 volts to the top of the Distributor cap but no spark to the wires.

    Does it have a spark or no fuel ,stick an old plug in a ht lead and see if it has a spark(fire)

    can you see fuel spray in throttle body during crank ? have spark ? there has been problems with oil pressure switches going bad that will not allow fuel delivery , check all fuses with key on first

    Went out to start the truc before work and let it warm up. 32 degrees outside. Didn't have it plugged up. It started fine I turned the heat on to warm the truck up and it went dead within 2 seconds. Wouldn't start again. Just turns over, not firing up. I plugged it up and let it sit 2 full hours and it still wouldn't start. I have a security feature on one of our cars where you have to leave the switch on to reset for 10 minutes before it will start. I tried this as a desperate last resort and now its like the battery is dying.

check your timing, check that your ignition pick up coil is good. also check your fuel pressure. and check for any vacuum leaks. double check your coolant temp sensor to the ecm it tells the ecm what temp it is and the ecm adjusts the fuel amount accordingly.

Vaccum hose diagram for 88 chevy truck. I put a 350 motor in my 88 chevy 1500 truck from a 95 suburban. I cant get the throttle body to stop idaling to high. I may need a vaccum line diagram for this motor...

it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.
