    Will it start if you spray carb cleaner into the intake, check fuel pressure
    also, is this a Vortec or TB fuel injection?

    I had a similar problem about a year ago on a Chrysler K car, and the
    kind folks here reminded of the 3 basic things required to have an
    engine start:

    1 - Adequate fuel delivery
    2 - Spark
    3 - Proper timing

    In my case, while I had spark and fuel delivery, my timing belt had
    been chewed up by a damaged timing belt tensioner pulley. Took me a
    while to tear the top half of the engine apart to verify, but once we
    found it and repaired it, that car was good to go again.

    Please be sure you check all of these things, ok?

    Best wishes!

    It did start with starting fluid. It has MFI MULTI-PORT FUEL INJECTION, I'm
    not sure if that is Vortec of TB. I checked the valve at the fule pressure
    connection and gas flowed out, should there be more pressure than that or do
    I need a tool to measure the pressure?
    -Thanks,Y_COYOTE

    It's starting to look like a fuel delivery problem. Thanks.

    You need 60 psi to operate the injectors only a fp gage wiil give you
    accurate diagnostic info.
