This sounds like your fuel pump. See if you are getting fuel to the fuel rail. Sometimes giving the vehicle a good shake will help it to temporarily start. Also try the relay.

2000 silverado problems


Common problem on that model chevy. Check the fuel regulator to make sure is not leaking. Allow it to run for a few minutes and shut it off then pull the vacuum line off of it. If there is fuel in there that it is leaking. If that checks out it will most likely be the fuel pump. If you cycle the key a few time then it starts fine it will be the pump

Yes it is most likely the fuel pump. the gauge is integrated with the pump, the sending unit is built into the pump assembly located in the fuel tank.

Have an 03 navigator that wont start, the started is turning over put no catching, acts like it is not getting any fuel


Verify that it's not getting gas by putting a few tablespoons of gas or spraying the throttle body with starting fluid (Ether) and then trying to start.

If it starts that way, then you have a fuel delivery problem, and not a spark problem, as it has gas and spark when you do the latter step.

Common problem on the 03-06 Silverado instrument clusters for the fuel gauge to go out. It's usually caused by one of two main problems, either the stepper motor on the cluster's circuit board is going out or the sending unit on the fuel pump is going out.

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

Acting like it is out of gas


Sounds like a bad fuel pump, that's exactly how they act when they die.

It's usualy inside the gas tank so it's a dealership type of repair, you got to pull the tank, and sinc you filled it, it's eithe got to be drained, or use a transmission lift to get it out, NOT a home job unless you've done it before and own a hydraulic lift
