1995 chevy Silverado won't start until you pour fuel down the tbi

Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 09:17 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

this week we installed a engine in a 95 chevy installed a brand new fuel pump  
had it running which we found out it wasn't timed right we put engine at tdc
pulled distributor installed correctly got truck started. Read that we needed to
remove tan and black wire on the fire wall well make a long story short
disconnected wrong wire ended up doing the 4 wire plug on the distributor
wasn't able to get truck to restart unless you pour little gas down the tbi then
injectors would fire up. changed out the ignition module no fix changed out
the distributor no fix hooked up the old distributor and spun the shaft fast
injectors opened and sprayed fuel but if you spun it engine speed they
wouldn't open up like there was not enough power to open injectors. Even
swapped out ecm no change

You may have to get all brand new

All brand new what? It does start with a little gas through the tin then it runs on its own.

Tbi^^^

Pouring gas in the carb dont fix the problem
