  1. 2002 Vortec Hard Starting

    I have a 2002 Vortec 5.7 in my Express 3500 van. It has become very hard to start lately. If I spray starting fluid in the air filter opening it cranks up fine, and will crank fine the rest of the day. The next day I have to spray it again to get it to start. I have checked the fuel pressure (engine off) and it is 52 psi. (it holds the pressure when the key has been turned off) (once the engine starts, if I check again the pressure goes up to 60 psi) I have changed the fuel pressure regulator and fuel filter. Everything looks clean, but the engine refuses to start normally.
