In my 1982 chevy silverado, the drive shaft won't

It sounds to me that the rear and went out. Crawl under your truck and make sure that your axle is still connected to the yoake. It would be kind of obvious cause if you'reU-joints break your axel would be laying on the ground. Your rear axle has a plug in it. Remove the plug stick your pinky him to the hole and downward trying to see if you can feel axel fluied. If you cannot most likely your ring and pinion is locked up. If you do feel oil pull your pinky out and look at it see if there is metal shavings in the oil. Good luck.

Cruise control on 1996 Chevy Silverado won't hold speed

Possibly a broken wire in the steering column. Wires goint through the steering column for the cruise are so fragile when the tilt is used alot causing the wires to brake. Part is $70.00 through advance auto. Cheapest I've found if you order online.

1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 - truck doesn't act like it's getting fuel to start. Battery, starter, plugs and fuel filter are all good. Why won't it turn over?

If it doesn't turn over, that tells me the starter is bad.

However, if it is turning over but not running over time, then I would try some starter fluid in the throttle body to see if it runs in lieu of gasoline.

If it does run on starter fluid, then it may have a bad fuel pump.

1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Starting Problems

Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.
