I would say the fuel pump is the problem,remove the fuel filter and see if the fuel will pump from it as you turn on the key ,just turn it on,not start.if there is no fuel coming from the line,where you removed the fuel filter,then the fuel pump has gone out.If there is,then I would check the pick up coil in the distributor.

I experienced a similar problem on a customers 98 S-10. After much research and probing of electrical wiring, it was a faulty ignition switch. This may not be your problem but it might also? Read on it and test it by hooking a test light to the output side after the switch and if the light dies out when it dies, there is your problem. Here is a tip. Put a fuel pressure gage on the vehicle, route it up under the windshield wiper so you can see it, next hook up a timing light to any ignition wire, run the cords so you can have the light in the vehicle (so you can see it flashing not to set timing) drive the truck and as it dies what quits? Fuel pressure or ignition? At least you know what direction to look further into.

My 1997 gmc 1500 suburban will not run but it pulls no dtc codes on the cpu


My 97 Suburban had a similar problem. Would not crank on a regular basis. Replaced spark plug wires, plugs and rotor cap. Vehicle cranked and ran just fine, plugs were in poor shape. Checked fuel pressure, above 55psi with engine running or just the switch turned on. Immediately after switching engine off the pressure would bleed off to "0" PSI. Otherwise everything OK. Problem solved, so I thought. A couple days latter I had to make a road trip from Mobile, Al to Fort Meyers, Fl when cranking problem re-occurred after approx. 100 miles into trip. I stopped at parts houses on the way to ask questions and to obtain their best ideas, at times it would take 30 minutes before engine would again crank after making a stop. I replaced almost all of the sensors. Finally made it to Fort Meyers that night. Next morning vehicle was dead would not crank no matter what I tried. Fuel pressure OK. Only thing left to replace, Fuel Injector spider system. Problem solved.

1997 gmc sub/gas sensor


replace the fuel filter which on the drivers side, under the truck, by the rear passenger's side door. If nothing still, then you need to check fuel pressure with a guage, about $45 for the tool. I've used it about 5 times in 1 year. You will have to do some research on the proper starting psi. But it sounds like a fuel pump problem, which is in the fuel tank. I've changed one by myself, not too terrribly hard. But make sure the fuel tank is near empty, two bolts to undo, that hold the two tank straps up, get a jack with a wide plate, because you cant drop the tank all the way to the ground, otherwise you will rip the wires off. I replaced the pump on my 99 k1500 Suburban, 5 years ago. You also will need either plastic or metal fuel line disconnect tools (they are a pain to disconnnect). The pump costs about $275. Go with a pricey one with a reliable manufacturer, you only want to do this job once, per 20 years.

Check for power out of the ignition switch. It sounds like the ignition switch is not engaging on the first try and its taking that second turn to get power from the switch to the ECU and so forth. I would replace the switch and possibly the tumbler if the key comes out while the vehicle is running.

Water temp sensor is used to regulate the amount of fuel that is injected when cold. If its faulty it doen't know its cold and does'nt know it needs more fuel. Replace this sensor and it should fix your problem. If your lucky the clip might have just come off they often break their clips at that age.

Disperatly looking for help ( suburbun 98)


These particular Vortec engines need more fuel pressure to start than run. So being able start it by pouring fuel and being able to drive suggests a pump starting to go bad (loosing pressure), a cloogged filter (causing a restriction), or a fuel pressure regulator going out (letting off too much pressure).
