I changed the fuel filter, oil, replaced the battery, added some heet to the full tank of gas and it stil wont stay started. gas is getting to the engine, checked the stem on the engine. it will turn...


Hi, under the hood you will have a electrical box with about 4 relays in it. You will find one that is marked fuel. The relays are the same, so try changing 1 with the fuel one. They should be marked on the inside cover. This happened to me, and after switching relays, it was fine. I bought another for $11.95 to carry with me. Mine was a 2000 Silverado 1500. Please get back to me and let me know if this does the trick!
Sincerely,

I changed the oil and do not know how to delete the message, is ''change engine oil'' in the display panel. what can I do?


Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL, 2000-05 Chevrolet GMC Trucks Silverado, Sierra, 1999-05 Chevrolet Venture 2000
Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the procedure if the system does not reset.

Good luck and please rate. Keep me posted, and thank you for using fixya.

I have a 2000 silverado Z71 push button 4wd. My 4wd service light is on but my 4wd works just fine. The light comes and goes. Im going to get a code reader but havent yet. Any idea what it might be?


The 4wd switch has been known to be a problem. p2575 is the code for it. Also there is a ground problem. The wires are on the frame near the drivers side front door. Remove the wires, clean the undercoating off, use dielectric grease on the terminals and reinstall them. After that spray on some undercoating to cover the area.

2000 silverado will start but wont stay running just dies.


I also agree it sounds like a fuel pump issue. Its easiest to remove the box (6 bolts {need impact wrench} disconnect wires at plugs and disconnect gas filler hose) and lift box up. A hoist is easiest but 6 people can lift it easily. The fuel pump can easily then be replaced. Takes about 1 1/2 hrs. to do entire job this way and its so much easier!
Good Luck!

Battery light on, takes forever to start then dies once started


if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping

2000 jeep grand V8 low idle then dies


A faulty gas cap can cause the sensor to come on.
Clean out the throttle body with a cleaner and see if the idle improves.
