Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
You have checked for fuel...but what about spark?
Also, make sure you have proper ignition timing. You may have spun a timing belt. If you remove the distributor cap have someone crank the motor and see if the rotor spins...if it doesnt, your belt is broken!
Checking the timing would be hard if the motor cant start. All you can do it turn the engine to cylinder 1's top dead center position and see if it lines up with the rotor position to fire that cylinder. If it doesnt, the belt is connected but has jumped time and your engine is not going to start.
If the engine is blowing air out the intake that may also be a sign of this conditon since the pistons are out of sync with the valves. Be careful!
Some motors valves can be bent if the pistons come up at the wrong time!
