The 3.8 liter engine has a timing chain. The distributor shaft should be turning if your timing chain is still intact. Have you pulled it out and reinstalled it? Maybe you did not get it seated right.
This must not be a '99 Silverado as shown in the heading? Give a reply back, and explain please. You replaced a fuel pump in the gas tank, and now the distributor shaft is not rotating? There is no plausible relation between the two-please explain.

Do you hear the fuel pump buzz for a few seconds when you turn on the key? If not you have an electrical problem. If you do, then trace the fuel line from the tank to the first point where it connects to something and loosen the connection. Turn the key on and see if you get fuel. If not then the problem is between there and the tank. If you do then try other end . Keep doing this at every junction and you should find the cause of your problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No fuel from my injectors, my fuel pump is not engaging.

Fuel pump power comes from a relay which is usually under the hood but not always, it can also be behind one of the kick panels next to the drivers left foot or passengers right foot. Are you getting power to the injectors as injector power usually comes from a different relay or direct from the ignition switch. The injectors are grounded by the control module so they should have power all the time or when the ignition is turned on. Check out the relays and also check the wiring harness connectors both under the hood and through the firewall. Next, check for the various engine signals to the control unit. If a cranking or cam angle signal is missing, the control unit will disable the injectors and fuel pump.. buy or borrow a copy of the workshop manual (try the local library for this) as most have the procedures and test methods to check for issues..

Distributor is not rotating on a 3.8 chevy motor after changing a fuel pump


check to see if the cam shaft is turning (broken belt). IF the fuel pump is mechanical it is possible to put the lever on the wrong side of the cam lobe and it may have jammed the cam.

2000 chevy silverado v6 vortec engine, died driving, changed fuel pump, plugs wires, etc. and still wont start. ever heard of that


1st, check to see if the fuel pump runs for 3 seconds when you turn the key to run (not start). If it doesn't run, then check the fuel pump fuse & relay in fuse box under hood, if OK, (spray starting fluid in the intake to see if engine fires at all), if no fire then look towards the ignition as the problem. There are 5 things need to start an engine: 1. fuel (delivered & pressure), 2. air, 3. spark (distributor/ignition module or pickup coil), 4. rotation & timing, 5. compression. any of these that are wrong or not there, the engine fails.

Truck stalls when I give it gas


It sounds like they have got the distributor out of time. You will need to adjust the distributor. That is what it sounds like.
