1999 GMC Sierra 4.8l running rough now wont start


Recommend starting simple. If you suspect fuel pressure, it might be easier to start with replacing the fuel filter first, and checking fuel pressure at the filter while your there. It will give you a better chance to determine if the problem is at the pump or closer to the intake. If for some reason you have to replace the fuel pump...very common in this model truck because fuel gauge problems, the easiest way to access the pump is to unbolt the truck bed, block it up wood (Significantly easier than dropping the tank. I tilted mine to the passenger side), then you will have easy access to the pump. CAUTION!!! The connectors on the pump are brittle and break easily, especially in a vehicle this old. It's very difficult to get replacements, so take your time to prevent breaking fuel connections.

Have you tried cleaning the mass air flow sensor ? Use Qtip and carb cleaner to remove any gunk on the two wires that strech across the inside.
