SOURCE: 1998 Chevy tahoe Hard to start when cold

Hello, yes the check valve is in the fuel pump assembly. The check valve is leaking and the pump will burn out soon. Unfortunately the aftermarket fuel pumps can be very unreliable. A good portion of problems we see on this site are from people who replace the pump sometimes twice and it still doesn't work.

replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump

SOURCE: 1997 astro 4.3 vortec v6 fuel pressure problem.

have you made shure there is fuel in the tank, they had alot of problems wth sending units on that year. if so chances are its the fuel pump. try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank while sombody tries to start the vehicle, if it starts replace fuel pump. faulty regulators will usually cause a very rich running condition.

this sounds like a failing fuel pump, this would cause low fuel pressure and that would account for the chugging as u call it, if the fuel pump has over or near 100,000 miles it is very likely that it is the problem, the pump is located inside the gas tank, if u replace it also check the fuel pump connector for burned contacts and replace the fuel filter or the manufacturer won't honor the warranty.

1998 chevy malibu stopped running while i drove it. Wouldnt start back, dont think it is fuel pump what else could it be

Most common "won't start" problems are fuel and ignition. Check for spark to the plugs and check fuel pressure. Let me know what you find. There are too many other things to list until we know if it's a fuel or spark issue.

this is most likely a fuel vapor issue.
