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!!

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.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
