Good place to start.Put gauge on fuel rail an watch pressure.Maybe you'll get lucky and get reading when it's running to compare with what you get when it won't start.Of course it couldn't be something easy like a clogged filter,could it?

I have a 1985 gmc sierra classic with the 350 engine been having trouble getting it to start I already put the timing chain on time but wont start it will crank but wont stay on.

There can be several reasons to check and must start by a flow chart fuel line, fuel supply, firing and then the timing. Check the electricals and see if there is firing, check ur firing sequence.

Recheck the engine trouble codes (reset any in history), then try to start it again. Check any new trouble codes - probably an ignition module or ECM problem.

05 silverado turns over wont start though jus repaced the fuel pump and still nothing spayed starting fluid domn it and runs for 10 to 15 seconds any suggestions

If starter fluid fires it up then your problem is still in the fuel system. You've already tested the throttle intake so move to fuel filter(s) next. Most cars with fuel filter problems will usually start or at least try to start but not necessarily. Next, disconnect the fuel line from the new pump and pump some gas into a glass jar. Filter that jar through a coffee filter and see if your fuel tank is dirty. This also seems unlikely because the truck is only an '05 but it is possible. You'll at least know whether your new pump is working right. I get a lot more new parts, that are no good, than you'd think possible. Next, check your fuel lines for kinks or other irregularities. The problem is almost definately in the fuel delivery system and not the throttle body/injector/carb and hopefully one of these will find it.

Onece in a while turn over wont fire. runs great other wise

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

92 corsica wont stay running. cleaned MAF with spray!

the maf on it isnt used a maf only a temp sensor the software change made the syatem speed density controlled fuel.. but if you have a idle probel it may just be the Idle Air Control Motor or IAC try to put foor on the gas pedal a little whne cranking see if it fires right up if so suspect the IAC.. is if still cranks long time try the fuel filter but those usually will make lack of power before you get a hard start issue.
