Stand in driver door and turn the key on but not to the point of startup and listen for the fuel pump by the gas tank if you hear it than check your distributor and coils

Chevy silverado 1500 z71 4wd. Sputters when starting and dies when pressing on the gas, wont start up sometimes.


How many miles do you have on it? Might be time for a tune-up (new plugs, plug wires, etc.) Start with the simple things first - have you changed your fuel filter? Could also be bad gas - couple of bottles of Heet (alcohol) will help with this. Then move on to more things like a Vacuum leak, fuel pump.

This sounds like you may have a fuel pump gone bad. Turn the key and listen for a pump whine, if you DO hear one then i guess i am wrong but this is what i would most likely consider first

2001 chevy silverado engine ''sputters'' and is losing power-


Backpressure is the result of any obstruction in exhaust flow. Both the converter and muffler create a certain amount of backpressure by design. If the cat becomes plugged, exhaust cannot properly escape and can cause an extreme lack of power. (Engine can't draw in what it can't expell out the other end) Usually the rotten egg smell is also accompanied by a "wheezing" sound in the cat as well.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.
