2000 SILVERADO 5.3 GETTING NO SPARK AND FUEL PRESSURE WITH A FUEL PRESSURE TESTER READS 55 POUNDS WHEN TURN KEY ON BUT SLOWLY DROPS WHILE TURNING ENGINE OVER

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

IN PARK . TRIED NEUTRAL JUST TO SEE IF I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH NEUTRAL SAFTEY SWITCH AND DONT HAVE WHEEL LOCK FEATURE

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

OTHER THAN WHAT I TOLD YOU IN FIRST PARAGRAPH I CHANGE CRANK AND CAM SENSOR

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

THATS IT OTHER THAN IT NOT HAVING ANY SPARK TO THE SPARK PLUG

OK. I just need to use it to see if the RPM is more than zero when you're cranking, will it do that?
