My truck died in mid-drive and wouldnt start again. We tried jumping it, timing chain is fine, the fuel pump is ok, and so are the coils. Someone mentioned it could be the internal computer? It is the vortec engine feedback pleasE!

Hi:
Are you sure that you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel?

Yes. My friend zapped himself checking that too. Sparks and wires are all good. The car died as though the timing belt/chain snapped, but it didn't.

Hi:
If you're getting fuel and spark, the only thing left is timing. Is the car backfiring or doing anything? Have you checked to make sure the distributor is turning? (If it has one)

Make sure the distributor is turning (have a helper crank the engine, remove the distributor cap, and see if the rotor spins when the engine cranks. If it is, the last things to check are timing and then compression.
