Sounds like fuel line is clogged. Can happen if you run low or out of gas. Check the fuel line.

Do an exhaust pressure test on the tail pipe sounds like the cat or muffler maybe plugging up. If it is then the engine won't allow engine to pull fuel into the cylinders and fire.

You have a problem in the fuel pump relay circuit for sure then. I'm betting the relay, but it could be that dropping resistor.

SOURCE: 2002 chevy express fuel pump/crank sensor?? not starting

i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.

My truck will not start. by spraying gas into carb i can get it to start but as soon as the gas pedal is pushed the truck dies


Recommend you troubleshoot the fuel system. Start with the fuel pump fuse and relay in the engine compartment relay box.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check to check the relay and socket. If the relay is working, you can also check for voltage at the pump by removing the connector and testing it. If there is power to the pump but it isn't coming on, replace the pump. If the pump is coming on, the problem is the PCM. Let us know if you get stuck or have more questions.

1988 chevy celebrity No fuel to the carberator.


without starting the engine position the key to the on position.
you can hear the fuel pump operationing for 4 to 6 seconds upon having the key on.
if not heard running check the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay, and the engines oil pressure switch.
they all work the pump you see
the engine oil pressure switch runs the pump untill the engine reaches normal pressure
once the pressure is reached to the normal range the computer shuts that circuit off and turns the fuel pump relay on

My 1988 chevy 2500 has been so reliable until it stated to stall.


Could be. But more then likely it's the gas. The gas you get these days from the pumps will gunk up after around 30-40 days. I'ld change the fuel filter see if that works. If not you might have to take the tank out to clean off the pickup sock. It's a small filter type on the end of the fuel pump. Of course, you should do a pressure test to see first.
