Chevy 1500 turning over but not firing

20

Asked by Nov 15, 2016 at 12:28 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Scottsdale Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My chevy 1500 4.3 v6 turns over but doesn't fire up.
I have replaced the cap, rotor, ignition module, all
spark plugs, spark plug wires and the ignition coil.
Fuel pump turns on and we've poured fuel in the
carb but still doesn't fire. Does anyone have any
solutions?

Update: It's not carb. It's throttle body. And it now fires when fuel is poured down throttle body. But the injectors aren't spraying any fuel
