starts then dies

Ok. So I put stage I injectors in and a tw chip. blew the transmisson so it is now parked. After the trans went I would occasionally go out and start it just so the batteries would keep charge. Went to fire it up the other day... started then died immediately. same thing over and over again, starts and dies. Figured it may have been a problem with the chip so I took it out and it has the same problem without chip. I am kinda ruling out the cps because the rpm gauge DOES jump around while cranking. There is fuel in bowl, fuel filter is up to par, oil is full. Any help would be great.

IPR? ICP? my only guesses. I am trying to get ahold of a scanner to pull codes in the meanwhile...

I have a feeling it could still be air in the lines since you havent had any time to drive it around after putting in the injectors, but checking the IPR and ICP will be good just to eliminate them or find them as your problem cuase Im not sure if it would be that or not

thanks matt, that very well could be the problem... but how long should i have to crank this thing over before she fires back up? I have 2 brand new batts that i keep cranking over until the die, recharge the batts and then the same thing all over again. I have comptemplated a short shot of ether but I am trying to stay away from that of course. damn this is frustrating

When you start it do you sit in the cab and hold it at about 1500 RPMs or just let it idle and then die? If you just let it idle then next time try sitting in the cab when you feel it starting, push down on the gas and when it fires up hold it at like 1500 RPM for a while, if there is air in the lines this will help push it out

that seems like that would work huh!!! I have tried that and just as fast as it starts, it dies. it wont even stay running long enough to hit the throttle or do anything
