Bad fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vacuum line to it and see if it has fuel in it. If it has that is your problem.

Those electric fuel pumps can sometimes be a pain for us Chevy lovers. The easiest solution I can think of is before attempting to start the engine turn the switch to the auto position and let the fuel pump run for 10-15 seconds before turning the key to start the engine. This can give the fuel pump a bit of a head start, allowing adequate fuel flow to start the engine on the first try. Every vehicle has it's own quirks, you can experiment with the switch on to start method until you find the right touch for yours. I hope this helps :)

I have a 96 Chevy s10 it cranks but won't start I


You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.

battery cables could be corroded or worn out.bad battery cables will cause starting problems. if starter okay. if engine turning over very slow.try turning engine with a large 1/2 inch socket and 1/2 socket wrench.if engine hard to turn could be locking up.if engine turn over easy with wrench. ignition timing and valve timing could be off due to worn timing chain.if engine turning over normal speed when you try starting it.could have intake leak.egr valve could be stuck open.could have faulty crankshaft position sensor or faulty camshaft position sensor.vechicle could be in theft security mode.best to have vechicle code scan that will save you time and money.

O have a 96 Jimmy starts if u poor gas down it but will only run half throttle give it more and it cuts out change fuel filter what else could it be please help me


Check your fuel pump. Take the gas cap off, have someone turn the key to "run", and listen. You should hear the fuel pump humming for a few seconds, and then stop. If you don't hear a humming, you will likely need to change the fuel pump.
New ones are a ridiculous price for that truck. Try an auto wrecker. Let me know how you make out.

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

Can you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank running for a few seconds when you turn your key to the on position without starting the engine? If you do not hear it something is wrong! If that's not the issue this could take a little while to pin down so feel free to contact me: over4dy@yahoo.com

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump make a whiring noise as it dispenses the fuel. If there is no noise. the fuel pump is not working.

Have you checked the fuel shutoff inertia switch.?
Check your owners manual for location.
