I am trying to figure out why my truck doesn't start. It seems that gas is not getting to the engine but I can be wrong. I was away from home for 3 weeks. When I came back, the truck started right away but stalled 2 minutes later. I made it to the grocery store (5 minute ride) but it didn't start after that. I had it towed to my studio.
The fuel injectors on my truck (1992 Chevrolet 2500 2WD, 5.7L) read a resistance of 1.5 ohms. The Haynes Manual says the resistance should be between 1.16-1.36 ohms. Is 1.5 ohms big enough of a difference to prevent my truck from starting? Would cleaning them change anything or should I just replace the injectors?
I looked at them while my boyfriend turned the key on and nothing came out of them. I am not sure if this is the right way to check them since the air filter housing was open.
What I have checked: The battery is charged and works fine with a load. I replaced the ignition coil and the fuel pump relay. The fuel pump seems to work, I can hear a nice wrrr when the key is turned on. The fuel filter seems fine and was replaced about 2 months ago. Spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor have been replaced 2 months ago, same as oil and oil filter. I just checked one of the spark plugs. There is a little bit of black deposit on it but not much (should I do anything about this?). I just refurbished the fuel pressure regulator that seemed to leak. The "check engine" light has been on and off since I bought the truck (a year and a half ago).
Could the computer itself be bad and causing the truck not to start?
Thank you in advance for sharing your wisdom.
have the same problem?
