I have an 88 c2500 scottsdale, 2x4, 350, 5-speed. It does not always get fuel to the throttle body, but it does occationally. When it does it runs like new. It has a new pump and filter. The pump runs when i turn the key but fuel doesn't spray into the intake. I disconnected the fuel line from the throttle body and trust me, ther is fuel in the lines. the truck has left me stranded many times. What could be wrong?

Welcome to the G M T C ! You will probably get more help on the "Power Train" forum. Good luck!
Welcome to the club. Could be plugged/dirty injectors. Also check your fuel pressure.
there is pressure. when i turned the key while the line was disconected,it sprayed lots of fuel. whats are the chances of there being an electrical problem?
Welcome to the club
I have had a lot of TBI issues with my '91 Sub, but mainly with not starting. My parents owned it previously, and for a while it would die while my Mom was driving it. It would be running along great, and die...15 or so minutes later, it would start. She would drive it for a while, and it would die...And so on. Turns out it was the computer. Had it replaced, and runs fine.

Now, it occasionally won't start. I still have not been able to figure it out, but it seems to be in relation to the level of fuel in the tank (under 1/4 tank). Start by checking out all of my started threads on the issue. Maybe there is something that can help you.

Good luck!
