Replace fuel filter.
Replace transmission filter.
If you notice a lot of debris on the tranny filter, it may be time for new bands in the transmission.

Check your fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.Sounds like the pump might be weak.

I would chech the ingition module inside the distributor. It's a little black box on the bottom(inside). I'm assuming you have the correct fuel presssure coming from the fuel pump.

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas


it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

96 Yukon (vortec) not getting fuel.....wont start.


I trust this is a throttle body fuel injection system?
If it is: purchase a "noid" for your vehicle at an autoparts store this little tester will let you know if your injectors are working. if they are not; they will not be spraying gas into your "bowl" the injectors are little electrical powered solenoids; check fuses, fuseable links and, the efi module.

1996 gmc 5.7 vortec It turns and turns but wont start


the three things an automobile has to have to run are compression, fuel, and fire. I think you need to check the firing. I would remove one of the plugwires and insert a screwdriver into the end of the plugwire, have someone turn the engine over while you hold the screwdriver about 1/4 inch away from metal on the engine if you get a spark then it is firing and you need to move on the next option. I hope that helps!
