You must have the plug leads in the wrong place on the distributor.
Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove the distributor cap. There is a tiny mark on the aluminum body where the cap sits on it. Turn the motor clockwise by hand until the rotor lines up with this mark. #1 plug lead should be in the distributor cap hole closest to the rotor in a clockwise direction.
If the motor still does not start rotate all the plug leads 180 Deg.

Hate to do this hard way but assuming you have no test equip. Pull the starter and have the Auto Parts Store check it out on the bench tester for free.

MY 2005 SILVERADO STOPED RUNING WHILE DRIVIN WONT START NOW. NOTHING IN THE TRUCK IS WORKING


Fried ignition switch will do that. It's in the steering column and controls all power to everything but if it cranks then it's at least mostly working. Check battery and if drained then possibly the alternator went out. The ECM can be shorted out by a bad sensor but usually act up for awhile before dying. Dead ECM you can still crank motor. Crankshaft sensor would kill engine if bad and no start but car would still crank.

Getting gas and fire but not starting


Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.
