Question about 1996 Chevrolet Suburban
Have someone put their ear to the gas tank and listen.And have someone else turn the key to the on position.You should here a buzzng for noise for 5 seconds that verifies the fuel pump is on.You can also spray starter fluid into the throttle body and try to start the truck.If it starts for a second or so then dies that means the engine is not getting fuel from the pump.Replace the pump.If it still doesnt start after that then the ignition needs to be checked for spark.9 times out of 10 when that happens it's the fuel pump or the ignition coil.Labor time on a fuel pump is 3 hours ( I just did one on same vehicle yesterday) And labor time on a coil is an hour or less.
