No fuel at throtle body on1999 gmc suburban

The fuel filter could be plugged up and needs changing. I would pour some gas into the tbi and see if it starts if so then either the fuel filter is plugged or the fuel pump is bad.

1984 Mercedes Benz 500 sel hard to start fuel pump is working pour gas down throat run for a minute then it cut's off what else could be wrong

Fuel pump. It can run. But it also can not put out enough pressure. You have already proven it by putting gas down the throttle.

I was driving down the road and the truck just quit. it cranks very well, but no intentions of turning over. i checked the spark,good but even when i puur gas in the carb. nothing happens

this sounds like a bad fuelpump, try spraying starting fluid in throtle instead of pouring gas, when you pour gas it may not enter all cylinders it may just sit in intake galley. try the starting fluid.also have someone crank the engine while you beat on bottom of gas tank with a rubber hammer, this sometimes shakes fuelpump and make a contact to get pump going again.

My truck will not start it has a new fuel pump and still wont start without pouring fuel into the throtle body

Well, you didn't say whether the truck will keep running or not after you start it with the plop of gas into the throttle body (a very dangerous proposition), so maybe this is a dumb question, but are you sure the new fuel pump is plugged in? Turn the key "on" but not all the way to "start." Do you hear a soft whine from just aft of the driver's door? If not, the fuel pump is not running. REpair shops and individuals sometimes forget to plug the fuel pump wire harness back into the vehicle after the replacement. If it is plugged in, check the fuse. Very often when the fuel pump fails in a Chevy truck, the last thing it does as it gives up the ghost is it blows the 20A fuse in the fuse panel inside the cabin by the driver's door. However, if the truck keeps running after you bribe it, and I mean until YOU turn it off, then the fuel pump IS running, but is not self-priming.
This is a problem you sometimes get with cheap (made in China) aftermarket pumps.
I buy NOTHING for any vehicle that says "Made in China." I'm funny about quality like that.

Truck will crank but not start

Try checking all the fuses with a test light may be a blown injector fuse.
