56-62 PSI is what the system should be running at. What kind of problem are you having?

Oh man that's a tough one. It almost sounds like a bad head, however there is an electronic spark control mounted to the firewall, that could possibly be doing it. If it is fuel injected, check your injectors. Something else to check would be the fuel pressure regulator. I'll have to think more on it, because you have replaced so much. Have you checked for trouble codes? The throttle position sensor can cause some of your symptoms. Hope this helps, but I think you might have a faulty esc control (electronic spark control)

1999 chevy blazer wont start


THE FUEL PUMP IS BAD.

if your losing fuel pressure after the pump runs the drain back valve in the pump has failed.

and i doubt that you are seeing enough fuel pressure to run a vortec engine.

low fuel pressure equals a non running vortec
