Not sure if you have fixed problem or not, but my husband has a 98 Chevy 1500 5.7 vortec. He was experiencing the same issues you are and had to replace his crank shaft censor. Best way to test is to turn the key over and listen for fuel pump. Hear it? You have fuel. Next try this: go to where spark plugs are, take the spark plug wires off, lay a screwdriver against the metal. 1 of 3 things should happen. 1. You get a spark, 2. You get a small jolt, or 3. Nothing happens. This means the truck is cranking, getting fuel, but no fire power. Replacing the crank shaft censor should solve this issue. Hope this helps!!
