Question about 1995 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

My 1995 chevy silverado 5.7L V8 Auto is acting up.

My 1995 chevy silverado 5.7L V8 Auto started acting up a couple months ago and i changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor and the problem when away. the problem was when i would cruise from 40-60 mph. under a steady load it would surge and feel like it was hesitating. now when i changed the plugs and everything it stopped....for a while that is. now its back again. so i took out one of the plugs and found that it had white build up on it. so i cleaned it off and it stopped but it still doesnt feel like its running as smooth as it should. does anyone have any suggestions to what the problem is. thanks for your time.

With white buildup accumulating so quickly after a plug change, it is a sign that you have worn valve guides. But the up side to this is that if there is no sign of fresh oil on the plugs then the oil is not passing the valve guides. This means only head work, and not an engine overhaul.

It's not those. It's the coil pack electrical plug. Pull the plug and use a hair dryer to dry it and the coil pack. Never use a power washer on the engine. The weather pack seals can't take that kind of pressure.

95 chevy silverado v8 it starts and runs fine in park but it stalls out as soon as i pit it in gear.


The first thing i would do is check the fuel pressure it should be 9-13 psi with key on and engine off.If its not within these specs then first change the fuel filter and if pressure is still low replace fuel pump.Let me know what you have.

Engine turns over but won't start / 1995 F-150


Sounds alot like the ignition sensor. In my old Chevys it was under the dist cap, mounted on the dist itself. Mine was flat, slightly curved rectangle shape, with two flat prongs coming out both sides. If it would get an internal break in it, you cant see it. I would have the same problem as you, part was only about $12. And comes out with unscrewing two screws.
Might want to give it a shot.

1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Starting Problems


Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.
