Won't stay running.

Asked by Jun 20, 2016 at 04:07 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab SB

Question type: General

I just bought a 94 Chevy c1500 5.7 auto 2wd. Sat in
the woods for 3 years,  (800 not bad price) has
149k. I have gone over every inch of wire I could,
put in a new fuel filter, pressure appears to be fine.
Turns over perfectly. Idle is my issue. It will not
idle. I put a flashlight to the injectors the only pulse
when the engine is turned over, I have to pump the
gas peddle to keep it running. Plugs look great
wires look great distributor cap looks great rotor
too. I just can't get it it idle even slightly
