Truck died as if key was turned off. Turns over, but won't start. Happened again 1 week ago. Replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, distributor, coil, distributor cap and rotor. Got it running good after priming carb with starting fluid. Ran good for 1 week, then happened again yesterday. Can't figure out what is causing this. Please help, GOING BROKE!

Have you done a relearn on the pass-key?
GM PASS LOCK RELEARN- Ignition to "run" position, try to start and let key return to "run" position
Approx ten minutes security light will go off
Turn key "off" and wait 5 seconds
Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 relearns.
Turn key off, then start it

This has GOT TO BE the most ridiculous answer I ever could have expected! My truck does Not have a computer chip key. Engine will run if I continually deliver short sprays of starting fluid into the throttle bowl chamber. Please re-read my original question and respond correctly. THANX

George if your injectors are disabled it can be the security system, do you have a light on the dash, and or a key with a large black plastic end you do have a chip, if not let me know and we can try other solutions, but the answer insnt rediculous. But I am sorry to have tried to help you.
