Question about 1996 GMC Sonoma
I have a 96 gmc sonoma 4.3 it acts like its not getting fuel. the pump kicks on and i just replaced the filter. the pump was replaced about 2 years ago. if i spray starting fluid in the carburater it will start long enough to burn it out then shuts down. any ideas what it might be?
I had the same problem with my blazer easy fix sounds like the cpi if its a vortec its got one large fuel injecter with six fuel lines on it in side the upper intake it could be that which is easy but expensive (about 300 bucks) it also has a fuel regulator attached to it it could be clogged or a bad seal its only about 15 bucks (fixed two 4.3s with that proplem)

Have you checked the fuel pump relay? usually that is the problem seeing is that it fires when you use the starting fluid.
