'96 GMC 6.5 Won't start?

Asked by Jul 21, 2009 at 07:58 PM about the 1996 GMC Sierra 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I haven't driven it in awhile (4 months), so went to start it and it just turns over. I can hear the fuel pump and I ended up bleeding it so I know its getting fuel that far. Also when I turn it over, there is no smoke coming from the exhaust.

What else can I check or do?

battery is the first thing you should check. check if its charge. for older cars and even newer cars now if you let it sit it can drain the battery quick. if you dont have a volt meter just try jumping it with another car.

I have a 94 6.5 and i had to replace the pmd box on the side of the injector pump it would die out and wouldnt start after a while.
