Asked by Mar 17, 2017 at 09:35 AM about the 1988 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Scottsdale LB RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm kind of having the same issue. Other day, the
truck started, I pulled out into the road and a crawl
and as soon as I gave it gas, the truck died and
won't start again.
Yesterday around lunch, truck started right up,
drove no issues at all. Drove a small loop parked n
called it good.
Last night went to move it, wouldn't turn over. Just
cranked and cranked. And with a bit of a temper I
snapped the throttle cable. I'll fix that.
Any idea what's going on? Truck has always been
super reliable,  drove it 6 hrs round trip a while
back. I know it's getting fuel, air, and spark by the
way.

You'll still have to do some checking. Is this fuel injected with a TBI or is this carbureted? It could be the ignition control module, or coil. even fuel pressure. Like when it does not start, is there spark? and what does it look like? White in color or an orange color?
