Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

While driving,my 97 chevy silverado just stopped running.

Its getting spark, the fuel pump is working, changed fuel filter, changed plugs, topped off battery with my battery tender. About 2 months ago my key became stuck and would not turn,after getting the key unstuck, a few times the only way it would start was poping the key on and off quickly, not leaving in the cranking position long. Could this problem that also caused the car to die while running be and ingition problem?

Yes If You Have To Many Keys On Your Key Ring Your Ignition Can Go Bad Fairly Quick. A Normal Sign Of Your Ignition Going Bad Is Shutting Off While Driving. You May Want To Try Changing Your Ignition Yourself As It Is Extremely Expensive To Have A Dealer Match The Keys And Everything. But If You Don't Wanna Deal With Having A Different Door Key Then The Ignition Key Then Pay The Extra Money.

My 89 Chevy Suburban Silverado STILL won't start! New coil, spark plugs, rotor, cap, relay,battery,inline fuel filter, fuel pump,solenoid.


Have you checked for spark at the plugs ? Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body and see if it attempts to run as this can show a fuel problem .

Changed fuel filter in 2001 Chevy SIlverado 4.3L v6, pump is working but no fuel to throttle body. Will start and run if sprayed with Carb cleaner, but stop after spray stops.


It is possible for pump to run but not put out pressure. Sounds like you need a pump. There is a valve on the fuel rail where you can test fuel pressure. Its just like a tire valve. Just push in on the center pin to see if you get a spray of fuel. It requires around 55 pounds to run. You will need to connect a gauge to the valve to check for proper pressure.

Check your fuel pump they usually go out after 10 yrs or so. Also check your fuel filter. Both easy fixes.

Chevy Trucks, Blazers, S10 pickup and the like will vapor lock ecspecially the 2000 models. Do not tighten the gas cap past 1 click. There is a tube that runs from the top of the tank down and this gets hot and collapses or burns in half. We just bought a reinforced rubber tube cut it to lengh and use it instead of part and it's worked grat for 2 years so far.
