Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

3 Answers

Truck has trouble starting- runs fine after start

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

New Alternater will not charge batery


When you touch the hot wire to the manifold you may have damaged your alternator. Take your Blazer to your local car service center such as Advance auto and have them run a test to make sure your rebuilt alternator is charging. Most centers will do this free of charge.

Volt meter on 01 Dakota is low but truck runs fine


i presume you live in a warm climate for one thing. the voltage regulator appears to be going bad... the problem with that is most modern alternators have them built into the starter. you may be able to r&r that part or you may have to replace the alternator.
If i remember right autozone will test it for free tho i'm not in the states myself so i'm not sure.
