Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Replaced battery as it was needed anyway on a 230,000 plus mile country driven pickup. also replaced alternator for same reason.. it was time. It was acting as if the starter was **** out.. will only click and clunk... similar to when starter went out on my 96 silverado. Tried the ol hammer to the starter to free it up.. even replaced the starter last night and am still faced with the same "click" upon turning the key. Truck just shut off while driving on service road, and then would not crank.. merely click. ANY help? Possibility of Timing chain slipping or breaking? NO indications of problems, no hesitation in acceleration, no strange noises or feel... just shut down out of the blue. FINALLY.. how difficult is the replacement of the timing chain if this is the problem?
Try checking for a shorted or open battery cable..maybe a bad connection somewhere..........check the main ground cable from the battery as well as the body ground.......(use a set of booster cables..put one end on the neg side if battery black or red.......put the same end that you put on the battery on a metal part of the engine.......to complete a temporary ground circuit....do the same with the body).....may be worth a shot..........
hope this helps...Good Luck!
