Hello My name is Robert. I own a 1999 gmc c1500 pick up 2 wd 5.7 ltr 350engine 118,000 miles.
It ran great saturday but it sat most of the weekend and monday morning would not run. It will start for a few seconds as long as you do not press accelerator peddle but will quit every time. If you press the accelerator peddle it quites immediatly and very violently. Some times while trying to get it to crank over it almost sounds like it is blowing out the carborator or will make loud noises like it suddenly changes direction maybe a missfire not sure it has never done this before. Like I said saturday it ran fine monday morning it wouldn't go anywhere. Also strong fuel smell while trying to start it.
The ignition coil is brand new as well as distributer cover, rotor, spark plug wires and just put a new alternator on about a week ago. Spark plug maybe six months ago when I put on headers. Any ideas suggestions will be very appriciated.
