1996 Chevy 1500 Pickup won't start

Asked by Jan 18, 2017 at 02:51 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4WD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1996 Chevy K1500 Silverado P/U won't
start. If I spray starter fluid into carburetor,
it fires up and runs great. Can drive it
forever with no problems once it starts. I
can hear the fuel pump prime when I turn
the key. New plugs installed. Any ideas?

Your fuel pressure should be about 60 to 65 psi, just because you hear the pump dosent mean it's working correctly.
