1998 Other Chevrolet Models V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I have a chevrolet K1500 4 wheel drive pick-up with a 5.7 engine. Once in a while when I took the truck for a ride, when I returned back home in a while I would try to start the truck again but it would just turn over but not start. This started happening more often until now the truck won't start at all. I changed the fuel pressure switch, the fuel pump relay and the complete full pump assy. Even though I was getting spark I changed the cap and rotor anyway, I also checked the crank pos. Sencer and it was ok. When I put gas into the throttle body the truck will run until the gas runs out of the throttle body. I have also changed the fuel filter. I don't know where to go from here.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi Louie, My codes are clear and the fuel pump is putting out 64 psi. I would have to take off the top intake manfold to get at the fuel injectors. This truck has Central Sequential Fuel Injection ( Central SFI System ). Is it possible that the injectors are not getting the gas to them?

Thanks

The wiring diagrams that you e-mailed were were blurry and could not read them even at the small print. Would it be possible to send them at a larger format.
Thanks
