96 chevy 1500 5,7 hiccup and hard starting !!

The truck seems to run well when accelerating but when i start it it will run for a few seconds and "pucker out"and this ususally repeats 4-6 times .. once started and traveling at a constant speed usually 55 or so it has a hiccup,, it is random and not predictable .. i have been through every possibility i can think of at the moment,,, suggestions???

The truck sometimes barely starts. then once it does, it idles fine. but when you give hard acceleration, it falls on its face. not the fuel pump or the filter, and definately not spark. its a 96 chevy 350...


Lets go back to the fuel pump. I am working on one now that has the same symptoms.It turns out it is the fuel pump. Still pumping fuel, just not enough pressure. Hard start, idles fine give it some fuel and dies. One other thing that I can think of that will do this is clogged catalytic converters.

My 96 Jimmy 1500 xt struggles to start on the first turn of the key. Then starts perfectly every other turn afterwards. Mechanic thinks it might be the coil. I think fuel is ok. Must be spark issue?


Have you replaced your fuel filter lately? If not try it. My friends Chevy will do that same thing and then we change the fuel filter and it's good to go. Also try turning you key on for a few seconds before trying to start it and see if you can hear the fuel pump running. You should hear it run for a few seconds and if not you may have a fuel pump relay or pump acting up. You could also do a fuel pressure test with a pressure gauge when it is cold also.

Truck runs for two seconds an shut down i changed fuel pump an filter and it still shuts down but it only stay running when i put gas down in the throttle body i had a 1996 chevy 1500 i was wondering can...


No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.

89 Chevy 1500 Runs but "fuel is starved?" and power loss


i would suggest replacing the catalytic converter. it might be plugged up and that could solve both your problems. if it demonstrates more going up hill the fuel pump might be going out

Camry Idles high for a bit at start-up, and now accelerates in a jerky way


you need to replace the coolant temperature sensor. It tells the computer that your car needs a high idle. As far as your running, you got some water displaced in your system. Change out the fuel filter, and pour a can of "Seafoam" in the tank. It will take a few miles, but that should fix your problem.
