HELP! '88 Chevy S10 with problem starting

#1

I just got a 1988 Chevy S10 pickup. It takes a few tries to start it up when the engine is cold, but it starts eventually; however, if it has been driven recently - even a short distance - it will not start at all.



I have confounded one mechanic so far, who has replaced the fuel pump and computer, and tried “everything.”



Does anyone out there have a quirky old Chevy truck that can enlighten me as to what might be the problem?


#2

have you tried replacing the relay and have you checked voltage at fuel pump?


#3

What makes you think that it is a fuel problem? Have you sprayed Starter Fluid (ether) into the air intake and tried to start it? Results?

Have you check for spark?
