SOURCE: HARD STARTING ONLY WHEN WARM

Drive this thing until hot and when you shut it off, open the hood and find the vacuum hose that goes to the fuel pressure regulator. It will be on the drivers side of engine on the fuel rail. It's a little round vacuum diaphragm with a hose to it. Pull this hose off and see if gas leaks out the little nipple of the regulator. I'll bet it's leaking and what is happening is that it's flooding out the engine after it's off for an hour or more. These are fairly easy to replace since they are on the outside of plenum. Just be VERY careful as to look at the new one before removing the old one. Check location of the retainer clip, if it is not on right the regulator can pop out and you will have a major leak!!! Also be sure to remove the old O-ring and screen from the rail, they tend to stay in there when you pull the regulator off. You won't be able to get new one in if old parts are left in the rail.

Been there before!!!! usually it turns out to be something really dumb that makes you say "Why didn't I look at that first???" (either while you are smacking yourself in the head , or, just after!!!!)
Good luck again!!!

What year and model is the truck?.. You say that if you use starting fluid and keep the gas pedal on open throttle the truck stays on?.. that means that at certain point you do get gas in the fuel system. Is it correct?.. otherwise let me know so I can give you more instructions.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

I have a 90 chevy k1500 350 tbi with same problem! I have traced problem to... after turning on key fuel pump kicks on when u crank it over injectors shoot gas and truck starts! After few seconds injectors stop spraying and truck dies! This can happen many times over and over! Eventually sometimes truck stays running and all is great! I changed ignition module, oil pressure sending unit (which i was told controls gas after vehicle is running) fuel filter, computer, fuel pump relay, I am at a loss now! Hope this helps and hope someone can help me!

I think the fuel pump went out on my 93 GMC 1500 truck.


try changing the fuel pump. When the tank goes empty it sucks the dirt into the lines.
