Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500
Stalled out in deep water,now it will start up but dies like its not getting fuel,the fuel pump is working and will stay runing by manually feeding gas.
DROP THE TANK & REMOVE ALL OF THE WATERED DOWN GAS FROM THE TANK.USE DRY GAS IN THE TANK AS WELL & A LOT OF FRESH GAS IN THE FUEL TANK & CLEAN UP THE FUEL SYSTEM ON THE TRUCK ALONG WITH REPLACING THE FUEL FILTER BECAUSE IT'S GOING TO BE FULL OF WATER FROM BEING FLOODED OUT.ALSO DRAIN THE OIL & REPLACE BOTH OIL FILTER & OIL TOO WHILE YOU'RE @ IT.CHECK OVER ALL OF YOUR ELECTRICAL WIRING & OTHER ITEMS THAT ARE ELECTRICAL AS WELL LIKE THE STARTER / ALTERNATOR / PLUG WIRES / SPARK PLUGS / YOUR TRUCK BATTERY AS WELL WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF HAS SHORTED OUT.EVEN YOUR EXHAUST SYSTEM WILL NEED TO BE CHECKED & REPLACED IF THERE IS WATER INSIDE IT AS WELL BECAUSE THAT TOO WOULD CAUSE IT STALL OUT IF THERE IS NO AIR FLOW FROM THE ENGINE TO THE TAIL PIPE.ALSO REPLACE THE AIR FILTER AS WELL IN CASE IT IS EITHER CLOGGED OF WATER LOGGED FROM BEING IN DEEP WATER.
REMEMBER IF ALL ELSE FAILS TO CORRECT IT YOU NEED TO GET IT TO A REPAIR SHOP FOR A COMPLETE CHECK OUT & ALSO TO GET IT FIXED RIGHT.

I have a 98 bravada where I was not getting no spark and no fuel, after replacing few parts it came down to the ECM fuse was blown. After replacing the fuse it ran for 20 seconds and stopped again. It blew fuse again. Put 30 amp fuse and it continues to run. Problem now is the heating and cooling is off. Been told could be a short in cable or something in ECM is shorting. Was told by parts guy at Checkers that if putting higher amp fuse in blows as well there is definite problem with ECM. As of now have not had ECM checked.
