This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

    Could also be the fuel pressure regulator...much cheaper and easier fix than the fuel pump. I'd try that first, part is around $50 and very easy to replace. I had the same problem on mine and it fixed it.

If the engine is turning over than none of the things you replaced will make the engine"start". You will need to check for fuel pressure and spark first.

2001 chevy silverado 4.8 gas gauge not working properly


Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

2001 chevy silverado engine ''sputters'' and is losing power-


Backpressure is the result of any obstruction in exhaust flow. Both the converter and muffler create a certain amount of backpressure by design. If the cat becomes plugged, exhaust cannot properly escape and can cause an extreme lack of power. (Engine can't draw in what it can't expell out the other end) Usually the rotten egg smell is also accompanied by a "wheezing" sound in the cat as well.
