Having problems with your 1990 GMC Sierra ?

Gas is not gettting pushed through the injectors on the throttle body. Gas is getting through the throttle body, but then it wont go through the injectors. Is this a wiring problem? I cleaned out everything so it shouldnt be clogged.

Answers :

1. Verify power using noid style test light (normal test light will not work)
2. If noid light illuminates when cranking engine the problem is the injector itself.
3. If light fails to flash the problem is electrical (IE PCM).

I have a 1996 Olds Cutlass Supreme with the 3.1 V6 and about 98k that I have recently purchased.

I have had it to a shop that I trust, and they cannot figure out the misfire. We have tried: Fuel Injector clean and test, compression test, throttle body cleaning and most recently replacing the intake manifold gasket. Compression is good and

I have an 89 chevy c1500, 5.7, 2wd. Had it running and trying to get it timed. During this process i noticed the injectors quit giving gas. I put gas in it and nothing changed so i have been chasing the problem since. changed pump, relay, fuse, have 12v at injectors new grounds, ecm, throttle body, map, tps, cap, rotor, coil, icm, and temp sensor. The fuel pump wont come on and the injectors won't fire. I assume this is an electrical problem any idea will help. thanks.


The reason the injectors stopped is because the motor is not running.this is a safety precaution built into the computer so the engine won`t flood.if the fuel pump is not working then you will have to check powers and grounds at the fuel pump connect ... 1990 Chevrolet K2500

Working on a 90 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 with a 5.7. When I got my hands on it the idle waved really bad after it warmed up. To the point of dying. Driving or parked it would do this. I found that the throttle body gasket had a good size piece missing. Replaced it. When I had the throttle body off it was clogged where the pcv valve comes in. Cleaned up the entire throttle body and replaced the valve. Still had the problem. Changed the map sensor. No change. Had the ignition control module

It idles fine, but when you go to accelerate, it tries to die, I have changed the air filter, and cleaned all the buildup off the throttle body? Could it be some sort of egr, mass airflow, tps or other sensor? I have sea foam mixed in the gas now to try to clean the injectors

Dear readers, I am having a problem with a rough idle. My mechanic cleaned the injectors, adjusted the idle and even had a diagnostics done, but nothing worked. I took the car to someone else and he adjusted something on the throttle body and it worked for one day. Could it be that my throttle body needs changing. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Gas get's to the 1993 Geo Tracker fuel injector assembly, (bypass fuel pumping fine). Car will barely start and "diesels". The more load put on the fuel system, (going up a hill for example) seems to amplify the problem. Notes..In changing the fuel filter, (previous mechanic placed filter back*^*wards) and the fuel pump, I noticed the fuel that drained from the throttle area was very dirty. Assumption is injectors clogged or something. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance. Rich
