Question about 1990 GMC C1500

1 Answer

1990 454 Chevy C1500 turns over but will not start

It actually died on the road. I felt it was missing and it finally died. Should I just change the cap and rotor. I will also change the spark plug wires becuase I noticed one was broken and did not have a good contact. I bought the car recently so i'm not 100% sure what type of maintenance was done on it.

The first thing i check on these Chev trucks is the fuel pump.............sometimes a rap with a hammer on the gas tank will get it going again...if it does you should have the pump replaced anyway because it will stop again
hope this helps...........good luck!

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. When the engine is cold the leak is there but as the engine warms up the parts start to expand thus closing the gaps and sealing the leak. I had this problem on my personal vehicle and it turned out to be lower intake gaskets.

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.
