My truck is had to start or stalling

I have a 95 Chevy 3/4 pickup that stalls on me and has a hard time turning on. I have replaced the spark plugs, cables, fuel filter, rotor , and distributor. When I finally get it to start, it smells like gas, but if I hit the gas it dies. Help!

Hello,

I have had to work on those chevy trucks that do this 9 times out of 10 the throttle body needs cleaned. you can trace the throttle boddy by seeing when somebody pushes the gas pedal in the cable opens up the throttle body, the correct way is to take it off completly and get carb cleaner or kerosene and a old tooth brush and scrub it out but if you just want to get quick results leave it on and by carb cleaner or that type of a spray and sparay some in there scrub what you can reach and start the car or spray some while its running just BE CAREFULL !!! Any questions let me know and please rate me if you get a chance..

Thanks,
Steve

    SO what was the problem?? Was it a dirty throttle body or something else like a bad fuel pressure regulator??

On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

My 95' Chevy diesel k2500 stalls out when im driving it. it will idle just fine and starts back up right after stalling. truck will drive about 1 mile before stalling again. What Can I check?


I have replaced many injector driver modules on these diesels. GM has redesigned it and i have never had a replacement one fail. This is a known problem for the 6.5 diesel. Unfortunately its about a 500 dollar part from the dealer, and requires intake removal, and some very tight work space to replace.

I have a 94 chevy chyenne 6 cylinder that starts and runs until it gets hot and then it dies. after it sets it will start again. I was told by a friend it might be the coil in the distributor.


the way i would check this is too use timing light or a spark tester on the coil wire run motor until it stalls check for spark @ ignition coil if the pickup coil is failing you wont have any spark bare in mind the ignition module can do the same thing so can the ignition coil. the part in the distubutor is called the pickup coil there is couple ways to test this. there are wires going to the coil that come from distubutor one wire pulse fires the coil there is a wire by the coil its a tach test lead you hook up a 12 volt test light to battery positive and check for pulses after the stall ocurrs. also test before stalls so you know what to exspect.if the pulse trigger stop its either the pickup coil or the ignition module.hope this helps Thunderboltz

Motor stalls when driving then starts and stalls right away.


Replace the distributor's magnetic pickup located inside the distributor surrounding the distributor shaft, the only other thing thankfully on this ignition system if memory serves me on the f 150 straight six 300 cu inch is the dura spark ignition control box, of course do the obvious tune up parts replacement dist.cap rotor,plug , sparkplugs before spending the $40.00 - $50.00 bucks on the dist.. pick up, you may have a weak a fuel pump check for adequate fuel pressure at carb 7 - 10 lbs.
