Question about 1990 Chevrolet C1500
My '90chevy C1500 pick-up turns over but won't fire. my mother was driving at the time,so i don't know EXACTLY how it happened...but a few hundred feet from the driveway the '90 silverado died.(it's a 2WD C1500 Camper Special) it turns over but doesn't fire.(it's fuel injected) it seems to be starved of fuel.please give me some tips to trouble-shoot the fuel system. i have basic mechanical knowledge,but limited to older cars...not fuel injection.but have common sense(which i've found isn't all that common).should i pour alittle gas in the carb and try to start it? or remove the canister(i assume it's the filter) from inside the frame and see if it's clogged? do i blow through it or won't that help? where do i listen for the hum of the fuel pump? any guidance from someone who's been there would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

Hmm, first check the fuse for the fuel pump, then check to see if you have power to the relay, then back at the fuel pump. Turn the key on, see if ya hear a short humm or buzz when ya cycle the key on and off, sometimes you can hear it better with the gas tank cap off. More than likely its the fuel pump in the tank, very common
