SOURCE: CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START

I had this problem with my 97 Jimmy. It is your ignition switch. The switch that touches the tumbler gets wore down. You'll have to tear the steering column apart to get to it and you will need a really small torx driver (not sure what size). Good Luck.

I have a 92 GMC K1500 I drove approx. 2 miles to deliver a package truck was running fine. shut it off approx 10 min. later would not crank. pulled off air breather was not getting fuel. thought fuel pump...


It can still be the fuel pump.the pump could be getting hot and not working. If u let it set for awhile and cool down it will start. You need to do a fuel pressure test it should read between 40 and 50 psi. Let it run for awhile and see if the pressure drops. If so I would replace the pump

I had same problem on 1996 gmc. It would start great and run great if you primed it with gas. The fuel pressure was at 55lb. It turned out itwas the fuel pump. The injectors on my truck needed more pressure to start but after starting this was enough pressure to run. I ran my truck for 4 months before the fuel pump quit alltogether. Once I changed the pump it started perfectly. Hope this is helpful. Sudbury, Ontario, Canada

Have a 98 gmc 5.7 truck have to prime to start truck.


Sounds to me like either your pressure regulator is bad or you have a loose fitting somewhere in the fuel line from the fuel pump to the engine. When you turn your key to the on position, you should hear the whine of the fuel pump until it builds pressure. When you shut the truck off the pressure regulator should retain the pressure for a certain amount of time but if it don't close then air is allowed into the fuel line and the fuel drains down to fuel line away from the engine. Next time you try and start the truck after it has sat for a while try turning the key on until you hear the fuel pump whine shut off, then repeat it 3-5 times and then try to start it. Basically that is running the pump enough to get the fuel back up to the injectors. Check for loose fittings in the fuel line, or cracks in the fuel line and if all that is fine then replace the regulator.

Hope that helps

1996 GMC Suburban - Quit Running While Driving, Will Not Start


Listen at the back by the fuel tank for a 1 to 2 second prime cycle whirr from the tank when turning the key to run position after it has been off for at least 10 seconds.
No noise means no running pump.
....and no noise means.....
Most likely it will need a new fuel pump....80%
Fuel pump relay 10%
Fuse or bad wiring 10%

The quick fix to get home is to crank the truck to create oil pressure to fire the pump......and while cranking WHACK the tank hard with a 2by4 or something like that....to jar the pump..... and it may start running long enough to get it somewhere to be repaired.
This works 60% of the time on a dead pump.

If you do hear a whirrr.....you most likely need a ignition module or crank or dist pickup.

Won't start. I have change the wires, spark plugs, cover and rotator and it won't start. I am ready to burn the them truck. Sometimes I don't touch it for a week and when I tried it it's start right away....


Do you have spark?
Put one of the old plugs in a spark plug wire and crank her over.
Make sure the plug is grounded.
Any spark?
Most likely the ignition module.
Next would be the crank sensor.......or dist pickup.

Yes to spark?
Put a little gas down the throttle body.......and see if it starts on that.

Yes to a start then dies out?
No fuel.
Most likely the fuel pump in the tank.
Turn the key off for at least 10 seconds.
Have someone listen closely at the tank........now turn the key only to run position....you should hear a prime cycle whirrrrr for about 1 or 2 seconds.
No noise? means....no working pump.
Check all fuses........but it will most likely be first....fuel pump.....second....fuel pump relay....third....no power to the fuel system.
Yes to whirrrr.........then it's ......no fuel injectors are opening if you have fuel injection.

'96 Chevy 1500 changed fuel pump now wnon't start


You will have to determine if it is fuel you do not have or a no spark problem.

When the key is turned to run position after it has been off for 10 seconds do you hear a prime cycle (fuel pump whirr noise ) at the gas tank for about 2 seconds?
If you DO hear this you most likely have fuel pressure.
If you do NOT hear this and have just changed the fuel pump with a known working good pump....it may be the fuel relay.
And remember...new pumps can be bad.

If you DO hear the whirr........perhaps you do not have spark at the plugs.
Do you have a spare spark plug?
Disconnect one of the plug wires and insert the spark plug you now have.....make sure the plug body is touching metal....(grounded ) and crank the engine....we want to see a spark jumping across the spark plug gap.
No spark?
Then check for these defective parts and chances are ........50% Ignition module.......30% crank pick up........10% coil........10% other (connections.....computer......anti theft....etc )

96 Jeep cherokee ran out of gas, re-fuel, won't start. No spark.


You may have to prime the fuel pump. Or replace the fuel pump if that does not work. Why do you let it run out of gas? This is definately not good for an injected motor. It will continue to cause more and more problems. Fuel injectors should never run dry.
