Pull the coil wire and check for spark from the coil. If spark is ok Spray starting fluid into the intake and see if it tries to start. These vehicle have fuel pumps go bad all the time at 100K-150K miles. So if it tries to start you would need to check fuel pressure

I suggest you have the injectors tested by the dealer, the sludge buildup will not cause a miss fire. to clean the throttle body use carberator spray while holding the engine idle high.

SOURCE: 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 XC 4x4 5.7 Hard To Start

It is probably the fuel pump. If I remember the number correctly, this fuel system needs about 50 lbs to open a valve.
Until this valve opens, no fuel gets to the fuel nozzels.

96 sierra 4x4 5.7, no spark, no fuel, only have .4 volts at ingition module, coil, and 10A ign fuse. Door locks don't engage when turn key,


Something wrong in the fuse box if you only have .4 volts at the fuse. Maybe a loose terminal in there.

Truck will not start when it snows or rains. turns over fine, just wont catch fire. any suggestions?


Hello pdstom

One the main items to check with this engines is the cap and rotor for corrosion on the electrodes.

This horizontal cap is prone to corrosion and moisture form the snow and rain can cause a no start situation.

If corrosion is found replace cap and rotor.

96 GMC pickup w 350 engine, starts hard after like 8 hours.


could be your fuel pump relay you should check to see if the pump runes for about 3 sec. when you turn the key to the on position. It should if not the oil switch is turning on the pump after you achieve pressure.
if not check the relay. also with the pressure gauge hooked up check if your pressure drops off fast after you turn off the car. if so you need ether a pressure reg or a fuel pump.
hope this helps
