Customer Question
I've replace the fuel...

I've replace the fuel pump and now it cranks but it won't start. It's getting fuel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the engine's fuel supply? And the spark plugs -- are they all working?

I put in about 3 gallons and its got spark

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

2001 Silverado 5.3 4x4 z71

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

Trying to locate crank sensor to see if I can see the chain, if I can't then I know it's the timing chain

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Well when it starts up I want to drive it , previous owner told me tranny won't shift into 3rd
