I have a 1997 chevy s10 4.3 v6 4 wheel drive the fuel pump whent bad I replaced it I had the truck running good. but now it wont start when i dump gas in the top of the flap thing on top of the intake...

You might want to put a fuel pressure gauge on it. I'd change the filter too. Check the condition of all rubber vacuum lines. These are notorious for getting brittle.

My 2000 Chevy S-10 with a 4.3 vortec is hard to start since I changed the intake gasket. Once started it runs great. Whats the problem.

which one did you change? upper or lower? or both?
the spider injection sys. is a piece of you know what. and I hate it as much as you do. it takes 55-65 psi of fuel pressure to fire those injector popets. If you have to take off the upper intake again, replace the regulater on the spider assy. since your in there. and look for strong spark at the plug, the type of spark that jumps at ya and bites you when your not lookin.

1994 S-12 V-6 Vortec Dumping Gas into the Oil Pan

If it's a "W" VIN (8th Digit) check the spider injector on the intake manifold. Throttle body will come off with the intake cover, ten 10mm bolts, and two 8mm holding the fuel lines in place. Once you move a few things and lift it off. (and unplug the big plug in the top that actually goes into the spider injector, about 12 prongs on it). Gently pry the spider out of the cradle on each side and squeeze the tabs and pull out each of the 6 injectors. If you take your time a novice can do it in about an hour.

1999 chevy astro wont start has spark and fuel preasure someone looked at and said they think a injector might be bad under the plentum does this sound right before i start tearing apart motor

if you vehicle has a Vortec engine it's possible for and injector poppet to spring a leak , My $$'s on the fuel pressure regulator . it's underneath the plenum (under throttle plate) and to the rear of the injector spider . most times it leaks fuel into the rear cylinders

I have a 95 s10 4.3 which starts nd runs fines

spider injection is a common problem with these vehicles, is it consuming gas more than usual, is the oil smelling like gas? The spider is located under the upper intake plenem. There is also a fuel pressure regulator connected to the spider assembly that may be faulty.

Replacing the o rings on a 95 chevy s10 2.2

The Injectors are right there in opening of the throttle body. There are not individual injectors for each cylinder.
There 2 or 4 injectors that spray the gas right on top the throttle plate. The entire manifold is filled with the gas/air mixture.

95% chance its the fuel injector (spider). Take the upper intake manifold off and turn the key on and off a few times and you will see fuel leaking from the spider.
