Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe
I have good fuel pressure but it not getting into the fuel injector
I agree with the other solutions. Mostly sounds like the ECM or clogged nozzles, or the computer is just not sending the signal for fuel flow. Where are you checking the pressure from? Follow the fuel line and make sure nothing is a problem with that first, all the way to the intake manifold. Remove a plug, turn the engine over, you will see the spray if its working. Are you having the problem on all cylinders? Need more information to help you better.

If it starts with a battery charger connected, that means your battery does not have the proper charge and your electrical system will not function properly ie.. fuel injectors not getting proper voltage. This is either your battery needs replaced or alternator. Once you have it running, disconnect charger and use multimeter at battery to see if you are getting over 13 votls DC. If not then your alternator is not charging and probably needs replaced--request auto parts store to run test first. Possibly the battery is shot and will not power system on its' own--also can be tested at parts store. Other possible but, less likely, is short in wiring drawing juice away from the injectors thus not providing necessary voltage to injectors--look for any place wiring rubs against something to see if there is metal exposed in the wiring.

SOURCE: fuel injectors will not spray,
sk8rboi62, Have you checked the pressure at the fuel rail up on the intake? Next have you checked fuel flow rate? You said fuel pressure is good but did'nt say from what connection the reading was made. Answer these questions for me so I will have a starting point, OK? quicbric (the volvo man)

electronic engine control unit calculates the mass of fuel to inject, not how wide it sprays. It's the type of solenoid that you use. Some have wider spray nzzles than others. An external Fuel pump helps the delivery of the fuel. Also since fuel injectors rely on mass air flows nowadays, you have to have proper mixture coming through. hows your Fuel pressure regulator?
The throttle position sensor reports to the computer the position of the throttle butterfly valve, which the ECM uses to calculate the load upon the engine-but inorder for this to run, you may need an external pump.
Sounds like nothing is being grounded back to the ECM to even give a reading. If your regulator is improper and you do not have a external pump (depending on your model), than check those. If not, Start from scratch.
If you ever lose your way, go back to the beginning_REWIRE!

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.
