My 1998 chevy k1500 silverado is stalling out and if I hold the gas down it will die, but if I just let off the gas it will idle, it has been like this before but it use to only happen when the truck was relitively hot,but when i turn it off and then turn it back on it is fine for another few minutes then stalls again.

When idleing once in a while it starts running rough and shaking truck, 1998 k1500 350. no engine light. when i gige it gas it smooths right out. engine seems like its a little louder than normal.


Here is the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

My 1999 chevy silverado is cutting out and dying. i've changed the fuel filter, it ran fine about four miles then stalled and won't start.it will start and idle then seems to run out of gas.


Wouldn't happen to be a diesel, would it? If so, do a search on ebay for a remote fsd/pmd module. Fixed my 95 'rado (in less than 20 minutes) with a 6.5 turbo diesel -it would stall wherever and whenever it wanted, without warning.

OXYGEN SENSOR OR FUEL PUMP?


Change the fuel filter, check the fuel pressure, then pull the tank and replace the pump if the pressure is below spec.

Truck dies when i stop or slow down


this may be the cause, try it and see if it helps, it is a very common cause of problems like yours.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I have a 1998 Chevy Silverado 5.7L


I have a 99 CK2500 that had simular problems. If at a stopsign or redlight some times it would die. If under way it would cut out for a second but not die. It ended up being the crank sensor. Hope this helps...Justin
