You could have an air leak between the tank and engine. If you have had a fuel filter replaced recently I would start there. As the pump sucks fuel from the front you can have an air leak and not fuel leak because suction creates a vacumme and fuel leak requires preasure

SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Silverado Fuel System

Hello Johnholley
I am wondering do you hear the fuel pump when you just turn the key into the on run position not crank just in run and listen and see if you hear the fuel pump run for a second, If you don't hear it you will want to check for power at the fuel tank, and have some one cycle the key while your under the truck with a test light. Hopefully you have power and you hear the fuel pump run. Now if you do hear the fuel pump running then the next thing you will want to check is for spark, It could be the ignition module or pickup coil. check out those thing and I am sure you will be able to figure out whats going on. If you don't get back to me and we can try a few other methods. I sure hope that helps you out johnholley. and thanks for using Fix Ya Bear001

Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

2003 chevy silverado occasionally runs rough, now won't start

Could be the crank sensor or something in the wiring. Each cylinder has its own coil, so it would be something affecting more than one cyl.
If it won't start at all now, you will have to figure out if it is a lack of fuel to the injectors or lack of spark to the plugs, or something else.
Are you saying the check engine light does not come on when you turn the key on, or just not when it is running rough ?

1997 chevy silverado starts one day next will not start

The next time it does not start have someone crank it over while you tap on the mass air flow sensor,if starts then remove the mass air flow sensor and clean the small wires inside of it using a non-chlronated brake cleaner let dry 10 minutes then re-install.

1999 chevy k2500. changed spark plugs 4 times in 7 months. Runs good for a week then doesn't start. Changed spider, throttle body sensor. Still has no codes and once again won't start.

The next time it won't start ,pull a sparkplug wire and see if you're getting fire.Then we'll known whether its a ignition or fuel problem and go from there.

Tank vacuum system fail on 1999 silverado I understand the gas tank oprate with negative pressure, mechnics say the tank vacuum sensor need to be replce, major problem because the tank needs to be remove...

any evap codes in the system (check engine light)? fuel tank pressure sensor can be replaced by just loosening the bolts for the straps that hold the tank up. it has two clips on the side of it that hold it in, you just pull it up. this sensor doesn't go bad very often. usually a gas cap, vent solenoid or purge solenoid.

2000 chevy silverado 1500 4.3 v-6, rough idle, studders and mifires during accelaration,had fuel pump replaced about 6 months ago,did all the tune up things-plugs,wires, fuel filter and what not, any help?

Try cleaning the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor diode with some throttle body cleaner. the sensor heats up and measures how much it's cooled off by the in coming air flow. if' it's dirty, it's insulated by the dirt and doesn't cool properly.this messes up the air, fuel mixture. was told by GM tech it should be cleaned every oil change.especially if you have a K&N filter or simular one that uses oil to trap the dirt in the gauze wrapping.I used a small screw driver to bend up the screen and remove it so both sides could be cleaned. this increases air flow also. being I clean it every oil change, no problems. one thing, Do Not Touch the diode with your fingers or any metal object. this could cause it to fail. if your carefull you should have no problems. my truck had the very same symtoms as yours.this cleared it right up, plus saved me a bunch of money

2000 Silverado just started bogging down on acceleration when cold. Fuel, air or spark problem?

This could be a tough one. If the truck runs smooth and just doesn`t have any power I would start by checking the resistance on your air and coolant temperature sensors. If these do not read correctly the computer sends out the wrong info for the fuel injectors and spark timing. This could very well be the problem since you didn`t mention any engine codes which means oxygen sensors are ok and you don`t appear to have any un-metered air entering the engine (vacuum leaks).

My 2000 silverado 4x4 5.3 auto has lost power

When was the last time you changed plugs, wires, and cap/rotor? Also check the fuel filter.
