somewt you have to ask your self a couple of questions. first are you getting fuel, is your pump working, second do you have spark to the plug? the best way to find out is to spray starting fluid in the throtlle body, if it starts yo have a fuel problem. if it doesnt start you have a spark problem

Problem Solved

The GF was towing a trailer and the weight of the trailer was sufficient enough to allow air to enter the fuel line and starve the engine. I towed the same trailer with her truck before and didn't experience any problems, only this time she allowed the low fuel warning light to come on and thought she could make it to town. Thanks to everyone who may have read my post and not yet replied.

This "Hotrodders Bulletin Board" website is the "Best". Thanks again to everyone.

They are cheap and easy to replace.
Make sure to use the dielectric grease that comes with it when you replace it !
Best of luck-

classicautoresto Fuel pump, pump relay, control module, cam sensor, crank sensor, etc, etc, etc. Check the fuel pump first. Turn the key on and listen for the pump to engage. I am assuming you have verified there is gas in the tank. If you can't hear it when turning the key on, switch the fuel pump relay with another matching relay...then try listening for pump again. If still no pump engagement, pump is probably bad. If pump is now engaging, the relay is bad. If it is still not engaging, there are too many computer controlled possibilities to guess without doing a computer scan. Check the parts stores in your area and see if they have a loaner scan tool. Most just charge a deposit which you get back when done with it. Good luck, Jerry

350 Chevy won't start

My GF has an 05' Chevy 4x4. She says it lost all power while driving and now the engine will turn over but fails to start. All the fuses have checked out good and a fresh battery has been installed, but the engine still wont start. Any ideas or suggestions to remedy this are greatly appreciated.
