Could be eletical or fuel related. if it is running rough, it could be bad spark plug cables, or weak charging system, bad alternater. if power system is ok. Then i would think feul pump.

Having problems with 2002 chevy silverado 1500 won't stay running. cut out going down hiway then died will run a while then die is this the fuel pump


Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter first. If it was the fuel pump, and being electric. It would have not restarted again if the pump has gone bad. The fuel filter should be replaced every 1,500 miles or once a year to ensure that your fuel system is running 100% and will not burn out your fuel pump early due to extra heat generated from working harder then is should. Good luck and keep me posted.

Truck died while driving


sounds like the fuel pump has failed, this is a common fault on this year, also the fuel pump connector is a problem at the gas tank, the new pump will come with a new connector, make sure you splice on the new connector, use a pair of wire crimp pliers and do it right or the problem will occur again.
