You might try changing the fuel filter first..its located just below the drivers door and is like a cannister.also check your catalytic converter.if its clogged it wont let it run on its own.i have a suburban and just went throguh what you are now. my fuel pump wasnt bad but i put in a new one anyway. it cost about 56.00 i think and its in the tank.which is held in place by 2 straps try the filter first and go from there. the converter is hard to check but if you tap it and hear anything moving inside it means its on its way out.when you take the filter off turn the key over to see if you get any gas....if you do then your pump is good if you dont then youll need to replace it

Lets start at the beginning. Did anyone check fuel pressure before and after replacing the pump ?
Has anyone checked the fuel pressure regulator and the injector spider ? The 4.3w engine uses a spider with one injector that supplies all 6 cylinders. And it runs at 65psi or more.

My 1997 gmc 1500 suburban will not run but it pulls no dtc codes on the cpu


My 97 Suburban had a similar problem. Would not crank on a regular basis. Replaced spark plug wires, plugs and rotor cap. Vehicle cranked and ran just fine, plugs were in poor shape. Checked fuel pressure, above 55psi with engine running or just the switch turned on. Immediately after switching engine off the pressure would bleed off to "0" PSI. Otherwise everything OK. Problem solved, so I thought. A couple days latter I had to make a road trip from Mobile, Al to Fort Meyers, Fl when cranking problem re-occurred after approx. 100 miles into trip. I stopped at parts houses on the way to ask questions and to obtain their best ideas, at times it would take 30 minutes before engine would again crank after making a stop. I replaced almost all of the sensors. Finally made it to Fort Meyers that night. Next morning vehicle was dead would not crank no matter what I tried. Fuel pressure OK. Only thing left to replace, Fuel Injector spider system. Problem solved.

check for spark at the plugs..if you have spark..get some auto mobile starter fluid ..spray some in engine intake.. if engine starts ..you have a fuel deltvery problem..that should narrow your your problem down..your fuel pump might be good..there are other parts in your system that will cause pump not to work.. such as plug fuel filter/pump relay..ecm..fuel pump fuse etc..take it one step at a time..guessing is costly

If you can, check the fuel pump pressure. The Votec engines are real sensitive to the right amount fuel pressure. If the pump is getting weak, it will cause the symptoms you are describing.

Truck shuts off


Could be idle air control valve, or mass air flow sensor, or a vacuum leak at the intake manifold or vacuum hoses.

1998 gmc 4.3 starts up but loses power 3-5 mins later,will restart and run again for another short time,fuel filter has just been replaced.


Install a pressure gauge, start and run 3-5 minutes and watch the pressure. You should see the pressure maintain as it did when first started. If it begins to drop, the fuel pump has gotten weak and is starting to fail.
Let me know what you find.
Regards.
