The carborator is stuck open. The needle valve is leaking. Get a rebuild kit and rebuild it. Or since your gonna do that. Try and take it apart yourself, real easy so you dont rip the gaskets when you take it apart. Or better yet, take it off. The set screws are 1 1/4 turns out. Check them by tightning them up and counting. Then open em up few turns. Shake it around and blow through the fuel barbs with canned air. Make sure you hold the butterfly valve open like giving it gas. Then tap it against your hand blow out some more. Maybee you get the little varnish like stuff out of it and it start back shutting the gas off? Put together, Tighten both set screws all way in. Then back out 1 1/4 turns. Dry sqark plug with tourch. Put it in start it up. Then after it warm up run good. Final adjust the screws 1/8 turn in to make it run good.

Will not start--new battery,alternator,cam sensor,crank sensor,plug wires..gets fuel and spark,starter fine,cranks but wont start.


put a timing light on it. if in time then spray some ether in intake. if tries to run now its a fuel problem. make sure plugs are gapped properly. if you got timing,spark,gas at right pressure, and compression it should run.

Running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine


can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

2004 tahoe. Worked fine two days ago. Wont start but turns over. replaced fuel filter,now what?


check for spark and fuel at the motor! take one of the spark plug wires off and remove the spark plug and put the wire back on it and rest the spark plug on a negitive ground point and have someone try to start it and see if the is spark. to check to see if fuel is getting up there locate the fuel presure relief valve on the fuel rail that the injectors are connected to and while someone it trying to start it depress the valve and see if fuel squirt out.
