well this is kind of a odd one. my dad did intake gaskets on it and thats last time it would start.i checked the timing that seems to be ok,got fuel and presure at the rail [didnt check with gauge] i also checked over harness connections no bent pins or broken wires. i have power at the injector harness

with test light.we dumped fuel down the throttle plate starts and run smooth other than that the truck dont even begain to fire. any suggestions

thank you

You need to get a fuel pressure gauge. That engine has central port injection which requires a minimum of 55 psi to start. Anything less, 54psi or lower, and it will not start.

I have also had the poppets on the end of the injectors freeze up after leaving the intake upside down during the repair. Typically only one or two will do this and typically the engine will still start/run.

The last thought is to make sure you check the fuses just to make sure you didn't inadvertently pop one.

It should hold that pressure in theory for days at a time. If its bleeding off right away than there is another issue that may or may not be causing the no start.

Is the snorkel on so that the MAF is reading airflow? are you sure you have all the vacuum lines/hoses hooked back up? Are you sure you have the upper intake sealed so there are no vacuum leaks. It may be worth pulling the fuel lines back out of the CPI unit to see if one of the plastic collars didn't turn sideways on you and essentially plug the fuel rail? Just some thoughts. Keep us updated!!

had 62 psi tappered down to 58 psi dont remeber if it held at that or not i will double check that. dad pulled the upper intake off and cleaned inj tippes he said it spitts and sputters now.i looked at the vacuum lines sat am didnt see anything disconnected.you wouldnt think that all poppets froze

thank you for your posts airjer

i will keep you updated

Running pressure and holding pressure will be two different numbers. 62 to 58 drop would be perfectly normal as long as it holds at 58. If it went from 62 to 0 in a minute or so then there is a problem.

I guess the next thing you could do is pull the upper plenum, Remove the poppets from the lower intake, Unplug the coil, plug in the CPI, hook up the fuel rail, and crank it over to see if the poppets are spraying fuel.

I do for some reason remember getting a call from a guy who worked at our hastings location a few years ago. he had the same problem after doing an intake (crank no start) and if I remember correctly he ended up replacing all eight poppet's/injectors. Obviously that is not going to be cheap so I would recommend getting a professional opinion (check data with scan tool and confirm signal to injectors) first.

i had my dad crank the engine over to see if fuel was spraying out last night no fuel butt i dont know if he plugged it in.

its going on 5yrs since i worked on that engine and living a hour away with 4 kids also working nights has a diesle tech.im trying to walk him through the steps my hand held or the shops wont check gas engine data signal. iwill call him in the am

ask him if he remembers pluging cpi back in. how would i now what direction the plastic collars need to face in cpi idont see it the chevy c/k manual

The plastic collars in the CPI where the fuel lines go in are there to space the o-rings that seal the fuel lines. It doesn't matter which way they go in.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
