Ok i need your help I got a 95 gmc jimmy with a 4.3 vortex that's not starting I got fuel coming to the filter but no fuel going to the motor anybody got any ideals?

is there fuel coming out of filter. with it being a vortex motor it could be the fuel pressure is too low to open the fuel injectors or you have a cracked fuel line inside the intake manifold and not allowing the fuel to go out the injectors.

I see a red flag here. If they don't look the same, they may have different gear ratios. This is critical in a 4 wheel drive. Front and rear gears have to match

98 jimmy four point three vortex will not fire until you let off the key. Acts like its out of time but has brand new timing chains and gears. The ignition mod tests good.

Even though your ignition mod tests good, you should try a different one. The tests do not always show a fault. What is happening is, your ignition is not getting enough power to fire in cranking mode. The usual reason for this is a faulty module.

I have a 94 jimmy that keeps loadingup the plugs and jumps timing but the timeing chain is not loose or strechedthe motor is strong but i cant keep it running

If you have a distributor cap with a rotor , it is possible that the gear on the bottom of the distributor is striped. It is driven off a similar gear on the cam shaft.
