    95 Tahoe turns over won\'t start...HELP

    Recently purchased 95 tahoe w 55/k, turns over won't start, I do'nt even smell gas. Could It be the fuel pump? If so is it an easy fix? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Geez- not too sure about a 95 with only 55K on it, thats what about- 7000 miles per year? Its almost 8 years old..... damn wish I only drove that much.

    did you buy this from a dealer? private sale??/ what was the reason for the low mileage? maybe it didn't start ...brother bought a jeep once- same deal..ended up a PIA.....hope this is not your situation!

    sorry I can't help....

    hmm, can you hear the pump turn on when you turn the ignition to "on"?

    is the truck setting any codes? might wanna read those for any that have been stored.

    Purchased from orig owner (family friend) who works from home. Can't hear fuel pump turn, then again I can't tell from where I am standing. The truck is not setting any codes. Rotor looked burnt so I replaced it along with the cap, no luck.
    Thanks ,

    Hmm you can't hear the pump... I would say that is the culprit then, usually the hum is noticable. Mine went last week end on my 97 with 85,000 miles on it. Repaired under warranty though so I couldn't tell you how difficult it is. I do know dropping the tanks are a P.I.T.A. though especially with a good amount of fuel in them. '

    BTW where in NJ are you. I'm in EHT.

    remove the air cleaner lid, pour some gasoline in the throttle body and replace the lid, try to start it, if it cranks and fires like it's trying to run, it is running on the gas you poured in and the pump isn't supplying more to keep it going. could be the pump, pump relay, fuse or wiring. if it doesn't try to start at all it is probably a spark problem, something in the ignition system.

    I got it about 60% done and traded it for a '85 TPI Trans am . Talked to the guy today... might buy it back. I am still looking for a nice motor/trans set up as I am not happy with the the one I have for the car. Let me know If you have anything.
    Thanks,
    Chas

    An 85.... 305 right. You'll be looking at new injectors too if your going with something larger. Anyway, all I have right now is a solid cammed 355 that needs a crank, probably put it in my blazer. I recently sold a 420 horse 383 I just built to a friend for his monte carlo. But I will keep a look out for ya.
