When I try to start my truck in the morning it takes about ten minutes. When I turn the key over to start it up it doesnt turn over. I have to turn the key on and off about ten times before it even turns over. It has blown my starter from taking so long to start it up. It seems like the gas is not getting to the engine. Could it be the fuel pump?
Do you

Welcome to the forum, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Some of the national brand autostores used to loan gages. You can call and ask?

Before you crank it, cycle the key on and off several times. See if it helps?

I have already checked the fuel pressure. It was around 51 pounds and the manual says it should be around 60. I dont know if 9 pounds matter. I have also tryed cycliung the key but nothing is really happening. I think it is just because of tjhe cold weather in Connecticut that is affecting it.

On some makes and models, I've seen fuel pressure 5 psi too low and the vehicle wouldn't start.

When the problem occurs, your saying it cranks good but won't start? You have the spider fuel system?

I have 1995 blazer that was doing the same thing. This is your problem I'm almost 100 percent sure. Take your air plenum off to expose your spider injectors. Then turn your key on do not start truck. You will probably see fuel coming from your diaphram /regulator. What is happening is when you do get it started all that fuel is filling up in there llike a pool. When you shut the truck off all the fuel drains down the spaces between the poppets down to the plugs. Therefore hard starts. Replace injectors and you should be fine. Till then A little trick that might help is hold the gas pedal to the floor then start it. That brings a rush of air in to dry out some of the fuel. Hope it works for you.
