How do I fix and 97 GMC 1/2 ton with a 350 vortec. Runs great once running. Sat for 5 years. If sits more than 5 minutes wont start without shot of starer fluid


have you changed the fuel filter and emptied the gas tank and put fresh gas in? Stale gas will not start as well as fresh gas and there could be water from condensation in the tank.

Gas was put in tank ,we are draining tank,was only run about 500 feet, what should we do to make sure engine is flushed


Disconnect your fuel line from the Fuel tank, take off the fuel filter and allow it to drain. Renew fuel filter and fill filter cup with diesel. Open line going to the injectors from the filter cup and allow to drain. Turn on the ignition while the line is disconnected and allow the pump to flow clearing any residual gas, do not crank the engine. With the fuel line disconnected from the injector, remove the glow plug relay. Crank the engine several times for 10-15 seconds at a time to cycle the fuel through without spark. Re-connect the fuel lines and replace the relay. Make sure that you have primed your fuel system as if you had ran out of fuel which by this point it already should be. Start the engine and run for 5 seconds, shut off, repeat this start cycle several times and you should be good.

Spray some starting fluid into engine intake air duct while crankingengine over. If it tries to start good possiblity fuel pump is bad. (In fuel tank). However if it does not problem lies somewhere other than fuel system

93 gmc sierra 5.7 liter engine, injection carb, will turn over won't start, replaced fuel pump fuse, replaced fuel pump relay, replaced fuel pump inside gas tank, no gas flow to carb , gas gauge has always...


you say you replaced the fuse, but does the fuse have power? the gray wire at pump should have power when cranking, or for 2 seconds when turning key on. At fuel pump relay, put power onto gray wire, the pump should run if the wiring is good. if it doenst run then ck for power at fuse while power is on gray wire.

The inline fuel pump fuse on the passenger side firewall is good? Are you jumping it with 12 volts at the test lead or the fuse?
