Engine Mechanical problem
1992 Chevy Truck 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
I have a 92 Chevy 1500 V6 4.3L that will crank and run for a few seconds then die. It sat for about five weeks in wet weather with only a few gallons of fuel.I put in new gas, a fuel filter, and ethelyne glycol. Thinking I flooded it with pumping, I let the carb air out and it started and drove fine after some initial sputtering.
After being parked for a day, the problem is back. I put in a new sending unit/fuel pump about 5k miles ago and a new distributor/coil/wires/plugs 2k ago. The fuel flows once it gets going, is there a relay or something that primes the fuel pump/engine? Could it be the carb itself?
Thanks in advance, I appreciate the help!
