Default Starting after being jacked up

Truck is a 1993 Chevy c1500 2wd.
Always starts right up and runs good.
After every time its put on jack stands or lifted up over 8inches or so it doesn't like to start when put back down with out giving it some gas.


Any suggestions?

given its age I would be looking for a cracked fuel line. the idea that you "jack it up" has me thinking your bending or twisting something that letting air into the fuel system. if its getting air then its leaking somewhere

just picking it up with a floor jack on the frame to put on jack stands.. doesn't have any leaks so i don't know about a cracked line. Anything is possible though.

just a dumb question but has this ever been in an accident? if so then the fuel sender may be the culprit. the senders tend to do a "snap" motion if hit hard. I tested hundreds on our sled at work and they almost always rip the pump off its mount if not supported like the old Chevy ones.
