Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you.
do you have the z throttle body engine or the w vortec engine?
do you hear the fuel pump come on for the first 2 seconds when you first turn the ignition on?
does the engine light stay on?if so,can you give me the computer codes?
tell me all you can
tell me,,how much fuel pressure do you have?
these vortec engine are particular,,these must have no less than 55psi of pressure at all times
just having pressure there doesnt mean much,,you need to test the pressure
its got to have 55psi to push the fuel through the poppet injectors
if the pressure is good,,then you could have one of two problems killing the injector pulse
1-the ignition module-even though it has a spark on the plugs,,the ignition module can kill the injector pulse
2-the pick-up coil in the distributor,,the pick up can kill the pulse because it may not be telling the computer the engine is turning,thus,not activating the injectors
i understand,,that tells us it isnt getting fuel
and it tells us you have a spark and the engine is in time
so,,check the fuel pressure...if it is ok,,concider replacing the distributor with a new rebuilt unit
