2003 roadstar silverado died on the freeway

Hit a pothole pretty hard , went about 20 ft then died and wont start now. it turns but wont kick over. The spark plugs are sparking. Checked the fuses. im not smelling any fuel when you press the starter. there is gas in the filter under the seat. The battery is charged. I can't figure out what could have dis connected or where to start with process of illimination. Can anyone give me a list of things to check before I have to take it in.



Check the fuel pump relay wiring. It may have come loose. Also check the ground cable on the battery and frame.

i bought a new fuel pump and filter. it started briefly but was real rough. shut it down , wont start again. Any mechanics in denver want to have a look at it?

Do you have spark at all the plugs? Have you checked the fuel pressure psi? Check the rollover valve to see if it is any good. You may want to clean the fuel strainer which is on the left side of the tank. Try looking at this to make sure that all the hoses and connections are tight. The 0-rings are good in the connectors.


im headed over there now. will let you know what happens.. thanks for walking through this with me.
