The GRAY wire i believe going to the fuel pump is the hot wire it should come on for 2 seconds with just the key in the on position this is were you should check voltage for 2 seconds then it will go away until you crank the truck.Your oil sending unit is behind your distributor that could be the cause .

You are looking at a wiring problem. Put a fuse in your hot wire and fasten it up and leave it there, unless you want to take the harness apart and replace the factory wire.

What can i do to start mt 96 chevy 4.3l 1500 truck, after ive changed fuel pump, plugs, plug wires, and checked voltage?


When you say you checked voltage...checked voltage to what? did you check to see if you had voltage going to the fuel pump? do you have spark coming from distributor to wire/ plugs, is the rotor ok? need to check weather your missing fuel, or spark so we know what direction to be looking at. you can try spraying ether/starting fluid in throttle body see if it will start up momentarily, that will atleast tell you weather its a fuel related problem or not.

1996 4dr Blazer is it the Fuel Pump or Fuel Pump Relay??? Just tonight "check guages" light came on and truck stopped running. Happen to be near repair shop, mechanic said its the fuel pump cause...


Spray gas into your carborator. Try to start it. If it starts and dies instantly, it is probably the fuel pump. You can also check the voltage going out of the pump. It should be near 12 volts. If it is not kicking on, it is probably no volts. Check the filter though. If it is clogged, it wont start.

My cheve wont crank and start well it will crank but it wont turn over and run so i can drive it it just cranks and keeps on trying but it never goes threw can anyone help me it is a 98 Chevrolet s10...


Start out by spraying a small amount of starting ether down the air cleaner. If it cranks and runs for just a few seconds at least, you probably have a fuel problem. Turn the key to "On" and listen: Do you hear a whirring noise, the fuel pump kicking in? If you do, then you need to replace your fuel filter. If not, you may have to replace the fuel pump. If the engine does not start up after the ether, you might check the distributor, make sure all the wires are plugged in. If they are, The coil may have failed.

My 2001 blazer 4wd does not want to start. could it be the fuel relay switch? It has a new starter,fuel pump,oc2, spark plugs and fuel injectors, ...problem is i turn the key and i hear the engine trying...


The first thing I do is spray ether in mass air flow manifold and see if it starts. If it starts with ether I know I have a fuel delivery problem. The PCM providing less than 12 volts to the fuel pump results in low discharge pressure. You could also have a bad pressure regulator or a clogged fuel filter.

I have a 92 Chevy 1500 with a 4.3. 7 outta 10 times I need to spray ether into throttle body to get truck started. Once its going, it runs like a champ. I just replaced the motor and everything that was...


Try replacing the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Low fuel pressure from a week fuel pump or dirty fuel filter will cause hard starts, a bad ground will also do the same thing so check the ground wire for the fuel pump which is separate from the main wire harness to the fuel pump sending unit.

Good luck and thank you for using FIxya.

Chevy tahoe wont start its as if its not getting gas


If you think it is not getting gas, then it may not be. You would need to verify this by installing a fuel pressure gauge. This truck MUST have at least 55 PSI. Even a few LBS less, the truck will not start.
If you do not have pressure, or it is low, a plugged fuel filter or faulty fuel pump would be the most likely problem. If no pressure at all, a quick test to check the fuel pump is to have someone in the truck trying to start it, and you go under and bang on the gas tank with a hammer. Many times this will free up a sticking pump. But, it will fail again.

My truck will not start.


Does the truck run as you spray a throttle body safe " carb" spray in the throttle body? You will need someone to help you do this. You spray it and someone else attempts to start it. If the vehical runs only as you spray ,then you have narrowed the issue to a fuel delivery problem.

Truck would not start, gave it a blast of ether, it started


get your self a fuel pressure tester, hook it up to the fuel rail, you should get at least 30 psi with key on, 30 to 45 psi with engine running.

5.7 vortex loses prime while siting 24hrs spray ether, starts up and restarts, new fuel pump one year


We've been having the same problem with our 1999 Tahoe. We were also told either fuel pump, fuel regulator, or injector. We believe it is the fuel injectors, particularly since reading this:
