Sound like the spark plugs arent firing hot. try replacing them, if still a problem it could be distributor. start with plugs, they are cheaper

When you had the coils checked did you get the module checked as well? Is the car throttle body or multi port injection?

Won't start but did and stalled out won't start at all now and oil filler cap smells like gas


If the oil cap smells like gas, one of the injectors may be flooding the cylinder and the crankcase. That would not be a filter problem.
Check the spark plugs to see if they are wet.

1999 Chevy Silverrado, 5.3 Z71. Stalling out when warmed up going up hill. Took it to Chevy certified repair man said it was Catalist converters. Had those repaced, drove it for a week then same stalling...


Did you notice if you where low on gas either or both times this happened? I wonder if it's not a fuel pressure problem? Other wise might give it a tune up air filter, plugs, fuel filter. I've also noticed that chevy's are always happier with a fresh oil change.

2001 chevy silverado 1500 4.3 v6. new fuel pump, new cats, plugs wires roater and distributer cap. shuts off after driving for a little bit gives no sign or warning. cant figure it out help please!!!


Start off by taking a spark plug out when it shuts down. If it is dry and a light tannish color, then you have a gas problem. If it is wet and dark colored, then you have a spark problem. Let me know what you find out.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.
