    Try Spraying Carburetor spray in the throttle body then try to crank to see if it starts momentarily make sure you spray enough. Then let me know what happens. Have you actually checked fuel pressure on the rail?

You should probably check the timing. It's not uncommon for Chevy's to jump time when they are shut off. Bring the engine around so the timing mark on the bottom pully is at 0 and lift the distributor cap. The rotor button should either be under the #1 plug wire( front wire on driver's side) or 180 degrees away from it. If it's off 180 then turn the engine over until the 0 lines up again. The rotor button should line up then. If it doesn't then turn the distributor until it does and try to start it. It should start there but you will still have to change the timing chain and gears.Hope this helps.

I have a 1993 chevy van 5.7 I'm getting gas all the way upto the Carb but it will not run unless I pour gas into the intake. Changed everything except injectors and relay.

well first thing is it does not have a carburator, it has a throttlebody. and the fuel pressure needs to be atleast 45psi continous, and a couple pounds less while cranking. first thing to check would be fuel, then spark. if both are present, then do the pressure check. could have helped with more info.

My chevy c1500 1993 model truck just all at once stopped running,i checked all usual fuel lines,pump.relay,o2 ,carborator,fuel ports,vaccumm lines,egr valve,fuses,and replced fuel filter 2 times to be...

The first thing is to make sure you are getting fuel to throttlebody see if it sprays,this year is fuel injected not carburated, if so good. next is to test for spark. remove a plugwire and stick a screwdriver into the boot and place screwdriver near metal ground have someone crank motor and see if theres spark, it sounds like you check everything except spark the most common problem with these would be the ignition contorl module,this is located under the dist cap, remove two connector and two screws and it removes have it tested at parts store, this when bad may also stop the injector from spraying fuel, this sounds like its your problem, they are easy to replace. hope the helps and also herea picture of the control module.86262cc.jpg

2005 chevy silverado won;t start.

i had the same problem, and it turned out the coil pack was moulding inside wich stopped the spark all together, i ended up changing my coil pack and putting on new wires because the ends connected to the coil were very corroded and that cures the not running part just fine

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting

if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.

93 chevy s10 4.3L V.I.N z

Hello I would think if you replaced all those components, It would lead me to say its the ignition module, Or Pickup coil, they are both located under the distributor Cap. Fairly Easy to change should take about 15 to 30 minutes depending on you mechanical ability. I sure hope that Helps you out. If not get back and we can do somemore trouble shooting, For spark,fuel pressure. Ect.. Thanks Hopefully that will get you going.
