There is a check valve in the fuel pump that sounds like it may have gone bad. Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, there should be 60 to 65psi during the prime and will drop 5 psi when the engine is running. Once the fuel line is primed, check to see how fast you lose your prime. Since you replaced your injection system, we can eliminate the fuel pressure regulator leaking which was common on the injection system your truck run's on. If the fuel pressure drops fast then it's going to be a bad check valve at the fuel pump and it may be time to replace the fuel pump it self. Good luck and hope this helps. Note: do not try to start the engine with putting gas through the throttle body, it's been know for small fires to start and burn the spider injectors.

1997 Chevy Silverado will not start replaced fuel pump also replaced spider injectors. Call shut down while driving


Does the engine have spark to the spark plugs? Is there 12 volts to the coil and is the coil being triggered on the ground side? Check to see if the coil is sending spark to the distributor. Several more things to check that will not let the truck start. Check these and get back with me and I will help you more if needed. Good luck.

Maybe a problem in the fuel pump circuit. Check fuel pressure with engine off, and key turned to on, not start. If no pressure, diagnose the pump circuit at the fuel pump relay. One terminal for the relay would be the power feed for the pump. The engine computer signals the relay on for 2 seconds with key on to prime the system, also signals during engine cranking.

Have a 2001 Chevy blazer 4.3 I changed the fuel pump and filter and the spider all new and it still won't start unless I use star ding fluid and when I stop spraying it quits


A couple things you might wanna check...double check to make sure you have no blown fuses...assuming they're all good, it is possible your Mass Air Flow sensor could be bad/faulty...fuel line pressure check...make sure all the fuel injectors are seated properly and working...clogged/bad fuel filter...when you turn the key to run can you hear the fuel pump "priming" the system? If not, possibly a bad fuel pump...and/or faulty wiring.

Hopefully that helps...
Good luck...

When starting the truck it turns over but won't start unless I turn it on and off several times


if the vehicle cranks and will not start, but when you cycle the keyon and off with a few second interval. by doing this you are priming the fuel line, if it starts after priming the system then i would look into the fuel system. would need to know exact details to give a more pin pointed answer

2003 Duramax Diesel loosing prime and will not start until I lift the hood and pump the prime plunger on the fuel filter housing.


duramax diesel trucks do not have a lift pump. start with the simple things make sure your fuel filter is tight and check the shreader vlave on the fuel rail if that don't help check the filter housing for a leaks arround the heater element or a crack in the housing itself
