you may need to run a wire from a keyed ignition source that has power while cranking and running to the fuel pump relay and bypass the pcm to test wether it will run, if it runs put a more permanent wire in place.Not too sure what tests youve done but it seems that fuel is what your focusing on so a quick test is too spray engine start up the intake tube to see if the engine trys to run if it does it eliminates a lot of other potential reasons for a no start condition.Also try squeezing the fuel return line to see if the added pressure will try to make engine run.Could be time to replace fuel pump etc anyway let me know how it goes good luck with it

SOURCE: Trouble starting

I'm thinking a leak in a fuel line or gas tank it should stay pressured up until next start if it is doing that I would look for a "pin" leak do you smell gas at all?

Disconnect the + wire Coils Take #1 Spark Plug Out Get a helper Use Compression Guage if not Available, Just put your finger over the Spark Plug Hole, have help BUMP the Starter over till You can Feel The Compression at your finger you need #1 at TOP DEAD CENTER on its Compression STROKE Fine tune it by using a STRAW in the Plug Hole to feel the PISTON Move UP To VERY TOP Dead center----------------------------------This is Tricky but don't Loose these Instructions------- If you have the OPTI_SPARK Ignition System My Books show all about it but Nothing on the Timing "MARK" as this is the step I Stoped at Above.. Coil Pack Ignition Will Have a Timing MARK On the Lower Harmonic Balancer. Point Being if Mark is NOT on the Degree Indicator It has JUMPED TIMING<< Surly on a Coil Pack Ignition System BUT
-------- The Opti Spark system if there is NO Timing Mark to Go by I Would Suggest Breaking Down and Letting A DEALER Handle it Unless You Can RULE that it HAS JUMPED TIME------------------------------------------------------------------------I Truly Hope I've shed some Light on Your Delima and this Leads you to a Smooth running Chevy. PLEASE don't forget to Rate Me ------------------------------------P.S. The Opti - Spark System Has A BAD REPUTATION Just FYI Recall - Opti-Spark Distribtor, Stall/No Start, Code 16 Notes

SOURCE: 92 Chevy Suburban Electrical Fuel System

I assume the fuel pump fuse is good?
The only time voltage will be sent to the fuel pump will be the first 2 to 3 seconds if the starter is not engaged. You will want to crank the engine over and check for voltage on the load side of the relay, circuit #30 at the relay.
Let me know after you check.
Regards,

Check fuel flter at fuel pick-up intank (looks like a small wire sock). Remove fuel filter and fitting at fuel rail. Blow out fuel lines w/about 35lbs air press. Ck electrical @ relay - should be 4 connectors - one is key on hot/one is always hot/one is ground and last is hot to fuel pump. Good Luck

Won't start new motor


Is it carved or efi??If efi do this::locate your throttle body,pull the air intake hose loose from the throttle body,spray starting fluid or carb cleaner into the throttle body opening, push the hose back onto the throttle body then try to start the car.If it starts & runs for a few seconds then dies,you've got a No Fuel problem.If it doesn't start at all,you've got a No Spark problem.If its a no fuel issue,turn the key on & listen for the fuel pump priming sound.If you don't hear it,check for a blown fuel pump fuse,defective fuel pump relay,a defective computer power relay or a tripped inertia switch.If they're OK,disconnect the harness at the fuel pump,turn the key on and use a voltmeter to test for battery voltage.If voltage is present,the pump is bad.If voltage isn't present,but its present at the fuel pump relay harness, there's most likely a short/open in the wiring harness between the FP relay & pump.You didn't list your vehicle info,so I'm unsure of which type ignition you've got.
Most no starts on a new engine are caused by a ground wire you forgot to connect,wiring harness not plugged in or a timing issue.

My tc 450 turns over, sometimes it will fire but not run. Good spark at plug. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Thankyou


check the fuel system. try to spray starting fluid at the throttle.
if it starts then die, most likely there's a problem with the fuel system. check for fuel pump (fp) fuse, relay, clogged fuel filter, or bad fuel pump, etc.

84 Corvette crossfire engine stalls out when running and trouble restating after stalling out...fuel pump replaced five times along with fuel filter and fuel pump filter...car sitting since 2008 and...


Yea , those crossfire injection vettes can be a bear sometimes . I had dealings with them 84-85 - 86 working as a tech at a chevy dealer . Don't remember much about them , haven't heard anything about them for long time .

How's the fuel pressure ? Have you put a fuel gauge on it ? I would imagine you don't have a Tech 1 scan tool ? What's the map sensor voltage at idle ?

96 chevy blazer won't start.


I'm following another issue like this on a 1996 Jimmy.
This engine requires 60psi or more fuel pressure to run.
You need to have someone check the fuel pressure at the rail- throttle body with a gauge.

Electrical problem there was no spark changed moulder starting fluid will make it run but wont stay runing need to find fuel relay or fuse


If starter fluid in the throttle body is making it run for a few seconds then you have a fuel problem. Either a new pump or relay or both.

Jim; have you confirm the fuel pum[ is working? If it is, you should get something out of the fuel rail. Sadly. Pump is a dealer recommended repair cause the pump is more than likely in the fuel tank. Thry should changre you filter at the same time.
