Truck won't turn over

Hello,

I have a 1998 Chevy Silverado Pickup w/the 305 ci motor. I started it and pulled it out of my garage, turned it off and now it will crank but it will not turn over. Any idea why? I have fuel flow at the Fuel Filter and spark at the 2 spark plugs I checked...

Turn the ignition on for 2 seconds, off, on for 2 seconds, off, on for 2 seconds, and try to start it. Post back the result.

I tried it and nothing happened... What was that supposed to do, reset the computer?

I'm confused, you say it will crank but will not turn over. Generally cranking and turning over are the same thing. Try telling me again what it will and will not do. Will it crank (turn over) but not start?

The starter is cranking the motor, however, it will not start and run. It is getting fuel at the filter and spark at the 2 plugs that I checked.

By cycling the ignition on and off like that, it builds fuel pressure to the fuel rail. If you were a little weak on fuel pressure, this would have built enough pressure to start the vehicle. But it didn't. I would say that it would be a good idea to have the fuel pressure tested with a pressure tester, just to see if there is indeed sufficient pressure.

Thanks, someone just told me he had the same problem and it was his distributor. When I tested the 2 plugs for spark, I guess they were a little weak...
