I am not familiar with this particular pickup, but you can start with checking the basics. If you take the line loose where it enters the carb, do you have fuel coming out when you crank the engine?(be careful to not spill fuel). If yes, then the carb float jet or input filter may be clogged. A carb rebuild will probably be in order. If there is no fuel at the input to the carb, check the fuel filter and fuel pump (this may be in fuel tank... not certain on that vehicle). Other possibilities are a crushed or kinked fuel line. I hope this helps you track down your problem.

,1996 chevy sierra truck does not get fuel to

It does not have a carburetor, its fuel injected. Chk, fuel pump pressure, fuel pump status, fuel filter, and make sure its not out of fuel. if all is ok, injectors for correct function.... noid lights or stethoscope. check cylinder balance for ignition.

Fuel won't pump to the carbarator

The fuel pump relay needs to be working to turn on the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay is behind the firewall of the battery. To confirm it is bad, pull off the relay and jump the wire at # 7 and #8 to energize the fuel pump. If it works then replace the relay. Good luck.

Will start but will not run in less gas is poured into carbarator

Not getting fuel, if it will only run by adding fuel. With it off, look down the carb and open the throttle, you should see a fuel spray inside. It sounds like fuel not getting to the carb. Probably fuel pump!
