1997 chevy malibu 3.1 engine starts rough and wont idle only runs with gas pedal being pumped


check the fuel filter to see if it is getting clogged and not letting enough fuel through it. make sure you have proper fuel to throttle body so it will run properly. if this does not help much, check idle air control valve.

1997 Chevy K1500 Z71 Chevy fuel injector problem


Did you check fuel pressure to make sure you are getting proper fuel pressure? If it will start with starting fluid then it has to be either fuel related or electrical. Are you getting power to your fuel relay? When you turn the key on can you hear your fuel pump come on? I would not use anymore starting fluid at all to try and start it other wise you cause major problems.

Truck cranks but won't start


Check the fuel line it may have a small hole that is allowing air in. If air is getting into the line the fuel will flow back into the tank. Happend to me one day and it turned out to be the clamp.

1996 silverado 5.7 vortec cranks but wont start. fuel pump, gauges, "idiot" lights, blinkers do not work. flashers and all the rest of lights operate. Just replaced coil and this happens


Had the same problem with my '96 Silverado with 350 Vortec. The truck would only crank. It would start if fuel was poured down the throttle body. Could not hear the fuel pump hum. Fuse was good, but could not hear relay click. Relay was good, Did some electrical wiring trouble shooting. Turned out that one of the connectors that clasp onto one of the pins of the fuel pump relay wasn't making a good connection, too loose. I just stuck a peice of wire into the connector and pushed the relay back in. Relay clicked, Truck Started. It's been more than 4 yrs. since I made that McGuyver fix. Still firing.
