Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The starter operates just fine, but when starting up it often takes 10 or more tries before it fires up. Most of the time it sounds like it's about to kick on but it doesn't quite get there. Sounded to me like a fuel issue, so i checked my fuel pump and it was fine, fuel filter was changed not long ago.
The truck runs just fine once it's started, no issues there. Also, the problem is more noticeable when outside temperature drops below 60 degrees, and when the truck has been off for several hours.
I found the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail was leaking fuel into the intake manifold via the vacuum hose.Was hard to start and rough idle. Pull vacuum line and see if fuel is coming out-if so like me-replace it. About 50.00 at Murrays. Also the two inner cylinders on the passenger side-opposite of the vacuum line will be very rich fouled-replace them all

I bet the spark plug or ignition coil wires are getting corroded.
