The car cranks over but will not start. It was a casual problem at first. I was able to spray with starting fluid and would start and run for a few days then i would have to use starting fluid again. Now that wont even start it. I fouund a few broken air hoses broke on the throttle body and replaced but the problem is not solved. Also the last time i used starting fluid it made a big bang, and then when i crank over it doesn't sound the same as it use to when i crank it over. The fuel pump does

Truck wont start in the morning or if it sitts for a couple of hours.I have 60 psi fuel pressure and i have spark. When i try to start it just keeps turning over. If I use starting fluid it starts right up and keeps running fine.If I shut if off and try to restart no problems. Its only in the morning or when it sits for several hours like after work it wont start without starting fluid.


I think your fuel pressure is borderline.How accurate is the gauge? Those injectors usually wont work under 58psi. I would replace the fuel pumpp and filter if the truck has over 125K miles on the original pump. . ... 1997 GMC Sierra
