Customer Question

I have a 1996 Winnebago Adventurer with a P30 454 Chevy Engine. Engine tries to start but injectors only start for about 2 seconds, then stop. Fuel flow appears to be good and fuel pump works.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you

will it fire and run with a prime[starting fluid or a little fuel in the throttle body]?

Expert:  Tims Auto Repair replied 10 months ago.

how much fuel pressure do you have?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The engine started once today and kept running for awhile, about 10 minutes. It warmed up and I turned it off, then it wouldn't start again. The engine starter turns over but the engine did not start. If I manually spray gas into the throttle body, the engine will cough and spit but not start. I don't have a gauge to measure the fuel pressure but will get one and install tomorrow.
