Customer Question
Will not start after...

Will not start after running out of gas. Confirmed the pump works. Blead the lines of oxygen. Cleaned, primed, still nothing. Will turn over, but, seems no spark. But, I am a whirlpool technician, and have great tools, so, I confirmed spark.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Good luck

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2003 silverado regular v6 long bed

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?
