Got a problem,
Got a 92 Silverado that was in a front end collision. Since the collision
happened it wont start. I
have spark and if I pour some gas down the TBI it starts right up. My problem
seems to be the
injectors aren't spraying any fuel. If I pull the plugs of the injectors I have
power on 1 of the
leads of each injector as it lights up a test light. When I crank the motor the
test light seems to
dim and flicker so I think I'm getting a pulse. Here's something I think is
strange though. If I
have someone turn on the key while I listen at the gas fill, the fuel pump comes
on but it runs
quite a while before it stops, about 30 seconds. On my other two trucks with
TBI, the pump runs
about 5 seconds and shuts off. I have no gas leaking out anywhere and there's
no gas smell while
the pump is running so I's not leaking out anywhere. I don't know if it's
taking this long to
pressurize the fuel system or if the pump has a time out if the system doesn't
pressurize in case of
a leak. Can anyone help me out here ???? I'm stumped....................

Had a similar problem on my 89 after dropping the tank, apparently I
jarred it a lil too hard dropping it, what happened is there is a lil
rubber hose connecting the pump to the pickup unit(metal lines). When
I dropped it I knocked one of the clamps on that hose off, so the fuel
pump was pumping, just spraying gas inside the tank.... Had to drop it
again(lot of fun). BEFORE you go dropping the tank, unhook the line
somewhere(fuel filter would be my choice) have someone turn the key on
and see if any gas comes out......
