SOURCE: process to change fuel pump on 2001 chevy silverado 1500

take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.

This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

SOURCE: 2002 chevy silverado starts right

By what your stating, that it starts and dies every time, It seems to be fuel related. You need to perform a fuel pressure check. You will need a pressure tester, one that would at least be able to read pressure to a maximum of 150 lbs of pressure. Although you really only need about 50-60 pounds of pressure to maintain proper fuel injector operation. There is a test port located on the fuel rail where you would conect the pressure tester. The test port is usually located on the drivers side of the engine near the rear section coming up from the firewall. Unscrew the pressure port cap if its still there and connect your tester. But also keep in mind you may have fuel pressure of some sort in the rail so be careful. While the tester is screwed to the test port you want to cycle the ignition key on and read pressure, you may want to repeat this several times. You must have at least 50 pounds of pressure, if so it should start. If you are losing pressure while your maintaining a visual check on the tester it could also be a faulty pressure regulator/fuel pump or even a rubber hose connection inside the fuel tank that connects the fuel pump to the fuel line. If you have any questions Im here to help. Thanks for using FIXYA

You don't mention just how cold it is when you're starting your vehicle (because "cold" is relative). A high oil pressure reading can be caused by using an oil viscosity that is higher than recommended for your vehicle and/or operating temperature (i.e. using a 20W40 or 20W50 in colder temperatures. The first number represent the viscosity (oil thickness) for cold operation and the high number for normal operating temperature. Be sure to follow the manufacturers recommended viscosities for your climate.

The engine starts and dies immediately. I have just changed the starter switch and starter switch housing. 2001 Chevy Silverado 5.3 Does the system need to be coded?


See if the fuel pump is working. Turn the key on and listen by the gas tank if you hear the pump working. Mine was still working but didn't have enough pressure to keep the truck running. You might want to test the fuel pressure.
