Customer Question

good morning. my 1997 chevy K1500 suburban isn't getting fuel in the throttle body. I've replaced both the ignition control module and the ignition coil.
It cranks but won't start. It died on me while driving, when I would try to accelerate it would hesitate.

The fuel pump "turns on" when the key is turned, pulled one of the plugs and it's getting spark.

since it has spark we need to be sure the fuel pressure is 60 psi key ON engine OFF with a fuel pressure gauge

if the fuel pressure is good then we will check for an injector pulse with a test light next
