good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

you need to check and see if it has any spark or fuel pressure. try spraying some carb cleaner into the air filter and see if it starts and stalls.

ok im not at the truck yet and have no pc there if it fires with carb cleaner then what,if it doesn't then what?
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

if it does, then you have a fuel delivery issue. check all fuses with a test light. if they are all good then it may be a failed fuel pump.

if it does not, then you have a spark problem. it could be a crank sensor or a coil. you will need a test light to test for power on both sides of the coil

start there

I did check all fuses and they were good.When I turn the key on shouldn't I hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds? And shouldn't I be able to hear the pump relay click when the key is turned on?
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

yes, the pump will run for only 2 seconds. that is a prime time. it will turn on full while cranking

Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago
