Question about 1993 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

1993 silverado will not start

Originally truck would die at red lights or whenever i would pull to a stop. I ran injector cleaner through, changed the throttle position sensor, idle air control valve, and checked to make sure the distributor was firing. finally I checked to make sure the fuel pump was work, it is getting a good strong stream of fuel to the base of the throttle body. why will it not start?

    Have you check to see if you injector are working? Do they have a pulse. You could have a bad injector shutting down the injector driver in the computer.

A good place to start would be to remove it and spray it down good with tuner cleaner, or electrical cleaner and retry. Clean connector and connections as well and apply some dielectric grease to connection before plugging back in.

My 1993 buick park ave stalls when stopped at red lights

When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters including FUEL filter? I'd start there, and run a good fuel system cleaner w/next tank full of fuel. In winter, with fluctuating temps, condensation (water) forms in fuel tank and spark plugs don't burn fuel/water efficiently causing stumbling and premature wear on your plugs.

1993 chevrolet silverado 1500 will not start has new filter and pump can spray fuel in to it will start then dies when it runs out of the fuel sprayed it it

It sounds like your injectors are not firing which could be a crank signal problem or wiring,distributor pickup coil problem or a computer problem.One wire to your injector should be pink this is the power wire it should have around 11.5-12 volts with the key on. The other wire is ground that the computer uses to fire the injector which you can check with a good test light hooked to voltage. and work back from that point if you have neither at the injector.

Try to disconnect the battery negative cable, and hold it to the positive post for half a minute. This will reset your computer. Reconnect the cable and start it. It may "hunt" for a while to re-learn. This is normal. Drive it to see if there is a change.To be continued....

Car starts then dies

Your antitheft system is shutting it down. You need to reprogram it. First hook up a battery charger. Then turn the key on. The security light should blink on and off. Leave the key on for 10 minutes. At the end of ten minutes, the security light will stop blinking. When it does turn the key off for five seconds. Then turn the key on. Repeat the 10minutes. Turn the key off then on. Repeat the 10 minutes a third time. At the end of the 3rd ten minute period , start the truck. It should be reprogrammed and continue to run.

Truck won't idle when cold

I had a similar problem with my 03 i went through the stages as you did. also i had a check engine light come on the read out was for lean fuel mix. I finally figured out it was the intake gasket leaking and when the motor got warm it expanded enough to close the leak. The way i tested that was when the motor was cold i started it and sprayed carb cleaner around the gasket and it almost died out. i'm not sure if that is recommended but that is what i did. I changed the gasket and have not had another problem.
