Question about 2000 Chevrolet 2500

2000 Silverado 2500 will not start

I have a Chevy pick-up that suddenly will not start. I have power to all the accessories and the voltage meter indicates11-12 volts. The battery showed good water levels. When I tried to jump the truck I got the same reaction. Nothing attempts to start.

Both the 40 and 50 amp fuses are good. It was dark last night so I wasn't able to check if a fuse-able link might have gone out. The truck started fine just a couple hours earlier when I moved it and gave no indication that it had any issues. Thank you for your help.

    2000 chev pickup 2500. before today it would start and die immediatly. I found a possible problem where the fuel pump wasnt quite sealed in tank. I repaired that one, changed fuel filter, put in good gas, checked firing order, Now it doesnt start at all, barely fires, the entire time turning over resposively. what the heck is it?

    Having same problem. Truck turns over responsively, would start then die immediately. That was before I went through the fuel tank, replaced filter, replaced old gas with new premium gas, etc... Now the truck wont start at all. Barely fires. What is the deal. All fused check out and I am now at a stand still. Can someone help me??

  • s60six May 11, 2010

    does it crank or do you get nothing at all when you turn the key?

  • Terry Janzen May 11, 2010

    Do you have any spark at the plugs?

  • Glenn Snow May 11, 2010

    When you cleaned the fuel tank, did you replace the inline filter between the tank and the carburetor/throtle body?

Can you hear the fuel pump running just before you try to start? Turn the key to the Acc. position (just before starting) and listen for the pump. It should run for 1 - 2 seconds.

Check your battery voltage with a hand-held volt meter...dash gauges can be a bit inaccurate. You should have no less than 12volts there. Voltage should be the same at the main starter terminal and at the trigger wire terminal with key turned to "start". At battery, you can also load test battery or checkstarter draw. If when turned to start, battery voltage drops to below 9.5v, but returns to original voltage with key off, starter draw is too high. If volts drop and do not return quickly, battery is no good.
No test is valid if the battery is low or terminals are not clean.

I looked at Silverado 2500 info. Cigar fuse is in under hood fuse block. That fuse also supplies voltage to pin 16 at data link connector. Use a test lite, check for voltage.

Start by charging your battery fully and see how it runs from there, then connect a multimeter to battery and observe voltage as it's running. Make a note of voltage before you start it and watch to see if it drops as truck is running. Try a few accessories like heater etc, to see how bad it draws voltage down. If charging circuit and alternator are good, voltage should maintain or increase. Be sure to look for obvious things first like poor/dirty connections at battery and alternator, as well as belt condition and tension before you go spending money on a new alternator.

2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD will not start

Are both batteries fully charged showing 12v? I ask this because I don't know if your friend's vehicle was charging. If it wasn't then when you put that battery back in your system it would reduce your overall voltage.

Torque specs on Chevy Silverado 2500 rear diff yoke.

There isn't a torque spec since those bearing are pre-loaded. You place the unit on a good known vic and get a breaker bar and you might even have to put an extention on that and you begin to tighten unitil you fell the bearing start to load...a little extra short turn wouldn't hurt at that point.

Try cleaning throttle body and IAC sensor.Thats more than likely the issue.It carbons up over time and sticks..Another problem could be in your air intake sucking to much air.Try those and you will most likely fix your problem..
