Your fuel pump may be at the end of it's life and need to be replaced. Your going to have to check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve, to have the engine start you need 60 to 65psi. Any other readings will not start and under 55psi, engine will not run. It's common to hear the electric fuel pump working but the mechanical pump it self is worn out and can no longer provide the proper fuel pressure for your SEFI system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help get you truck running again. Auto Zone has loner tool program and they will have the step by step instructions to get the job done.

It sounds like the fuel pump. You may still be able to hear the pump, but it needs to produce a lot of pressure. If it is weak it won't do the job.

I have a 93 gmc suburban it starts then dies if I put my foot on the gas to keep it running smoke comes out the muffler and when I take my foot off the gas it dies


Sounds like too much fuel, could be a leaking injector, faulty pressure regulator, or blockage of air intake. Did you replace the injectors and pressure regulator when you worked on the throttle body ? Can you see normal fuel spray on both injectors when the engine is running ?

Engine wont start,,battery works...starter works...not sure if its fuel pump or what the problem is


It might not have enough fuel pressure. Try spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body when you crank it to see if it fires.
