The pick up coil in the distributor is bad.The pick up coil tells the computer where the cam is ,and syncs with the crankshaft sensor to start the engine,then the crank shaft sensor takes over in run mode.If this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

On teh head manifold area is a sensor that controls the cold start device ,if you renew this sensor it will start ok ,now the problem is i cannot help you here because i have no product knowledge ,but a quick way around this is to buy the sensor which screws into the manifold or head ,then look for it on the engine so then you can find it and know what it looks like .

Check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve, there should be 60 to 65 psi when the fuel system is primed. "engine not running" once the engine is started the fuel pressure should drop around 5 psi, any other readings will give you a no start or no run. Your fuel filter may be close to the end of it's life or the fuel pump may not be pushing enough pressure when the battery is under load and under 12 volts, once the engine start's the voltage rises to 13.5 volts giving the fuel pump that extra to keep the fuel pressure up. The other common problem to your Vortec engine is the fuel system. The fuel pressure regulator is know to go bad on the Spider system, which also would give you the no start problem. Start simple with replacing the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve and then go from there. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100% again.

It seems like the lead from the ignition switch to the fuel pump relay is open. Try this--turn the key to on for several seconds, then turn to start. Let me know if that works, and I can try to trace the open wire on a diagram. Other possibility is anti-theft system malfunction.

I have replaced alot of transmissions in thease vans, i would try changing the filter and fluid, if that doesn't help you may be looking at replacing the tranny.
