May be smart to stop at autozone or similar parts place where they will scan for trouble codes free. Sounds like one of a few sensors may be the culprit, so to save money, try that first, it may just tell exactly which one.

Cranks, no start on 97 GMC van with 350 Vortec. Fired up with starter fluid


if it starts with starter fluid then its a fuel problem. check the fuel pressure and volume with a gage. these require at least 56lbs pressure to open the injectors and if the pressure is at 52lbs the they will not open. these use the pressure to open the poppet injectors and have a problem with the spider lines cracking and leaking fuel inside the intake. this is probably why it won`t start on its own.

Assuming you have everything reinstalled correctly and the fuel pump was your problem to start with, try disconnecting the battery for at least 15 minutes to reset the computer. This worked on my 1996 Blazer.

1996 le 3.0 v6 camry, ran out off gas now it won't start. it pumps fuel and started when you spray starter fluid in it


how do you know that the pump is working and how do you know the pump is pumping enough?

have you measured fuel pressure

furthermore, even if fuel pressure is "good" you may have clogged all the injectors when you ran out of gas and sucked up all the **** from the bottom of the tank

Van cranks but wont start y


sounds like a fuel related problem, possibly a fuel pmp, take a little starting fluid and spray it into the air intake and try to start it, if it fires up for a couple seconds then it is the fuel system...if it doesnt start that you have an electrical problem. Once you narrow it down into one of those two catragories, you will know where to look....the most common problem in fuel system is the fuel pump, others include, the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, and the injectors, the most common eletrical issues are the plugs, wires, coil, distributor, and starter. Another good way to check a fuel pump is to have it nice and quite and to the key from off the the start position, not turn the van over, but just to start, you should hear a little humming noise from the rear of the vehical which is the pump kicking on, if you can acheive the quiet you need for this you can have someone turn the key back and forth while you listen at the filler tube or even crawl under to the tank.

best of luck, we are here if you need anything else.

Turn key forward listen for the fuel pump to pressurize if you don't here anything then your fuel pump needs replaced and it's in the tank.
