Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
CAn you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the on position before cranking it?
It should run for 3 seconds then turn off. It will sond like an insect buzzing in your tank. That would be the first thing to check. If it is not running you will not get fuel to the engine. There is a fuel pump fuse in the panel that I would look at if no sound from the pump. There is also a fuel pump relay usually on the firewall up near the brake booster that you can check if the fuse is good. It will make a click sound when it shuts off after the 3 second mark. If all of the above passes, check for power at the relay with a test light and hope it is not the pump. The fuel tank has to be dropped to change out the pump. I get them from Ebay for 20 bucks and they have worked great.
Hope this helps
