Why won't your 1996 Chevy truck 5.0 fuel injected start even though you are getting fuel up to the throttle body it will run if you put fuel into the throttle body until it burns it out?

Possibly inadequate fuel pressure. I forget the Minimum acceptable pressure, but that's easy enough to have checked. It has to have no less then 9 LBS. And no more then 13 LBS. to start and run.

You need to take the fuel line loose on the tank side of the filter and install a

pressure gauge in the line and cycle the key on and off, That will tell you the

fuel pressure. 9 - 13 PSI. is the spec's.
