    Well I know you said its getting fuel but is it getting enough. If the fuel pressure is too low then the truck wont get enough fuel to keep running. I personally don't know the exact fuel pressure, but it should be about 60 psi while running/ starting.

    1996 Chevy Tahoe LT 5.7L V8 4X4 205,000+ miles. Built proudly at Janesville Assembly in Janesville, Wisconsin
    Basic mods: Lights all over, bunch of electrical work, and a couple cooling mods.

    Check out my other mods in My Garage:

    Very possible and can't hurt! a dirty fuel filter and rob fuel pressure easily and cause hard start and trouble running.
