I have a 93 silverado that runs but dies. I was told that it was my distributor but it wasn't by a mechanic. I thought it might be my alternator but before I bought anything I thought I would ask you.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Hello, Are there any codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check codes yourself, see if anything shows up.

How long since a tune-up? Can you check fuel pressure?

There should be a datalink connector under your dash, you use a jumper between the A & B terminals, turn the key on, no crank, the (check engine lite) goes to flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. OBD stands for ( On Board Diagnostics).

With tBI fuel injection, you can see the fuel injectors spray gas, with the engine cranking. To check fuel pressure, you tee a gage into the supply line.
