200 Chevy Suburban -- trouble starting

I have a 2000 Chevy Suburban 2WD, here recently I started having to crank the engine over 2-3 times before the engine started and stayed running. The other day my wife calls me and says it will not start at all now. I went to the EVAP service valve and pushed in the valve and no pressure..... does this mean the fuel pump is bad?

    My 2000 Chevy Suburban is not starting until 2 or 3 tries. It now started stalling at intersections when stopped if no pressure on accelerator.

    My dads truck doesnt like to start on a warm start unless you hold the ignition on for 3-4 secs. Fuel pump was replaced last week but seems not to do anything. We are running fuel injector cleaner through the gas now to see if that does anything. So far no luck.

    I have the same problem with my 02 suburban. However I have replaced the fuel filter as well as the pressure regulator and it still is doing the same thing. You have to crank a couple of times and then it starts right up. I thought the next step was the fuel pump but my understandingis that I would have loss of power or the pump would just go out all at once.

Bad fuel pressure regulator. Located on drivers side of engine on fuel rail. Cost of part is around $70. Easy to replace. Buy the part, look at it, find the old one on the engine in the area described above. Pull the vacuum line off of it, if you see any fuel in the vacuum line it's bad. The vacuum line sucks up the fuel flooding the engine. Classic symptoms. Make sure to relieve the fuel pressure prior to removing or let it sit for a couple of hours, or over night. The leak will relieve the pressure over time. Simple clip holds it on, easy to get at. Make sure to remove both "O" rings prior to putting new unit on. Should solve the problem.

2000 suburban ran on interstate killed would not restart no engine light. plenty cranking. towed home started right up next morning ran 2 minutes and killed would not start and again plenty cranking p

Hi Mike, Could be something to do with the battery and a loose connection, or a blocked fuel filter or defective pump, which is the most likely. Have a diagnostic scan carried out. Regards John.

2000 chevy suburban stuck in 4 lo anyone out that cant help

Put truck in Neutral while key in run position engine off or on (doesn't matter which). If it's pushbutton 4wd then try hitting 4low again. if that doesn't work some of the chevy trucks required you to press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 4hi again to get back to 2hi, unless yours has a 2hi button. In that case press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 2hi to get back to 2wd. either way you need to be in neutral to get out of 4lo. I have shift on the fly (Mechanical Shifter on floorboard for transfer case) on my 1990 Suburban and still have to put it in neutral to get out of 4lo. Good Luck.

Suburban slow to start. Turns over, but won't crank. Must "bump" the starter 6-10 times (easing off the ignition switch quickly) ...only way it starts. Then runs good and cranks good after...

I ASSUME you have a 5.7L engine? 2 things could cause this, maybe more. but I would start with the crank position sensor, and then replace the distributor cap and rotor.

I am trying to identify where a leak is coming from looks like bolt on tranny, but it is my engine oil. not rear seal. 2000 chevy suburban 2wd lt

the 1st thing u do is completely degrease the engine area that has the leak, oil goes all over from road draft so this is a very important step to finding the source of the leak.
