1996 5.7 no start purchased in this condition. Checked fuel pressure at crank its 55-58 psi check spark and has spark at plugs. Have installed new spider because it had a small fire under the intake burnt injector lines and had filled oil pan with fuel. Drained oil and replace oil and filter . Checked timing it was ok but can gear had some wear so replaced dist. and plugs. Have 175 lbs on compression on almost all cylinders one had 165 odometer shows 123k and the truck looks right for that. will not even try to pop?
So I drove my 96 Chevy k1500 with the 350 vortec over a train track like any normal day and all of a sudden my truck is shaking real bad. I managed to get it to a friends garage nearby but I couldn't accelerate. It would only coast. It was running really lean and would fall flat on its face when i gave it gas. It had low fuel pressure so changed the fuel pump and fuel filter. It drives a lot better now but it still starts to fall flat when I try to accelerate too much. I still can't figure out why it won't accelerate.
So far I've replaced my...
Idle air control valve
Elbow tube on the pvc
Breather tube grommet
Spark plugs and wires
I put a new mass air flow sensor on it and that only made it drive worse.
What else could it be?
