SOURCE: 96 bravada replaced fuel still no start runs with starter fluid

If your getting gas and spark get an obd 2 scan tool and check your mass air flow sensor. I had the same problem. If your having a problem with this vehicle always check the computer first; it will save you tons of headaches later.

SOURCE: I own a 2000 chevy blazer with a 4.3 v6 vortec. It

did you check power and ground at the fuel pump connector?there should be power at two wires at the connector,one should have constant power with the key on and thats for your fuel gage,the other power wire should have it only when cranking or for about 3-5 seconds when the key is turned on,check both of those first and that will let you know that everything is fine all the way forward of that connector,also did u replace just the pump or the whole sending unit?if you just replaced the pump the connector that runs fron the sending unit to the actual pump itself inside the tank also goes bad on this setup too,look for brown or burn marks on the inside of the sending unit where this connector hooks uo,hope this helps

Do a compression test on all of your cylinders when it is cold. Backfiring is a sign of a worn valve seat allowing mixed fuel and air (lit by spark) to be forced back into the intake. You will probably see compression loss on one or more cylinders.

Also... there is a chance that the EGR valve is not totally seated when the engine is cold with just a small blow by. The EGR valve seats coke up over time with black gunk.

When I try to start my 1999 Chevy Tahoe 350 vortec I here the fuel pump run but it only starts and runs while spraying starting fluid?


Your best bet is to get a fuel pressure gauge and see if you have the required pressure at the test port.

My 97 chevy astro wont start when cold but well when i spray starting fluid in the intake ive changed every thing in the fuel system including the pump


what is the fuel pressure with key on and engine off? since you mentioned spider injector assembly it has to be a vortec engine that requires 55psi to open the poppet valve in the injectors just to start.

I ran outta gas on my 1998 chevy silverado v.6 vortec. i put more gas in it and pumped the accelerator a few times and it still wont start. how can i fix it is it simple


Best way to fix it when you run out of gas is this. Because you ran out of gas, means your fuel filter is out. When you run out of gas, you end of getting like a air blockage in the line. Now, professional way is to take fuel filter off and fill with gas and put back on, BUT i will tell you a back yard mechanic secret way. Is get a can of starting fluid ( you can get at any auto parts store) and while someone is in side the Pickup, have them ready to turn the key. You are outside with the hood up, and you will be spraying a little bit of the starting fluid in the air intake of directly in carb area ( if carborated) but just spray into air intake. Have them crank the engine, at same time you will spray starter fluid in air intake, just a couple of quick sprays. You will notice it will start and maybe die again. That is normal, you might have to do this a couple times to get things flowing. HOWEVER, what normally happens when you run out of gas, the fuel filter picks up all that junk that has been gathered in the bottom of fuel tank and it has clogged your filter. FOR SURE, if you replace your fuel filter, it will solve this problem. Thank You, and I hoped this helped you.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 with a 4800 vortec engine. it starts and idels fine but when ever i give it gas, the engine starts to sputter and dies. ive already changed the fuel filter and spark plug...


This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

96s10 starting problems replaced throdle position sensor,fuelpump relay,no start shot of starting fluid fires right up and runs


Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. You should have 60psi to 65psi with the fuel pump primed and engine not running. Once the engine has been started, there should be a 5psi drop. Make sure the fuel filter has been replaced and that the fuel pump is making at least 60psi. Anything less or more then 65psi will not activate the fuel injectors, the other thing to is that the spider injection system on the vortec are know to go bad and you may have to replace the system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your S-10 running 100% again.

mcdevito75 here, You"ll have to trace the fuel lines from the gas tank to the carb. look for kinks, breaks, beds in the fuel lines. Also change the gas filter.
