SOURCE: fuel system

Has the truck been in a accident or driven in rough conditions? If so check for an inertia switch, they are usually located behind the passenger side kick panel or behind the glove box, you will find a red button on the top just press it and it should work, also there is a relay under the dash about the middle of the cab that is powered by a fusible link and the links will burn out just replace the fusible link and the problem is solved….

SOURCE: for 89 k1500 cheyene fuel system

Either the fuel pump is bad or the line out of the fuel pump(inside the tank) has a hole in it. I have had to have two replaced on my 88chev PU. I am persuming that you have plenty of fuel in the tank.

Poor fuel economy can come from bad fuel or tune up.Try switching to a gas with a higher octane and give your truck a full tune up.This should help your fuel economy out a little.

I have a golf gt tdi 150 which has been chipped to 180 bhp. In the mornings, I start it and it cuts out after few seconds. I then try again and it struggles to start and blows white smoke out of exhaust....

Hi Sue, White smoke is a sign of air in the diesel system. It seems as if the fuel line is sucking in air. The most likely place is the fuel filter seal. The best way of sorting out the problem is to replace the filter with a good quality replacement fuel filter. Regards John
