Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

1997 GMC K2500 Suburban Desiel (cuttin off?????)

Ok, thanks 4 the helpful hint about the fuel filter. Changed it already. Also I went and spent more money at a shop and they replaced the fuel shut off valve on the injection pump. Help for about 4 days and went back to cuttin off again. it's kinda of weird. someday it will run all day.then the next day it will crank and get 2miles from the house and starts acting up. Don't Know? I've replace everything that i can think of accept the fuel pump and the injection pump. Vacumn test and votage test was normal. did what it was supposed to do. STUCK?

Hi i got a toyota tarago 96 model that wont start my wife was driving and she heard a bang then the car stopped in the middle of the street so i changed filters n spark plugs n pumps still no start

There are videos on you tube for diagnosing vehicle no start problems ! Rather then just replacing parts . Testing for spark and fuel pressure and engine compression . Timing chain problems etc... My advice to you would be take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Save yourself some money . You spent how much already ? i changed filters n spark plugs n pumps still no start !!!!!!!

1992 Ford F350-7.3 Diesel 4 wheel drive. Have to crank engine a long time to get truck started.

Instead of investing all that money for items that may not have had to be replaced, why not invest in the services of a qualified diesel mechanic? They should be able to isolate and correct your problem, and probably at a fraction of the money you have already spent. If this work was done my a 'qualified' mechanic, take it back and have it done right or file a claim against them, and report them to BBB.

I have replaced a bad fuel pump, and drove my car for an hour last night no problem, this am it would start and run for a min. and shut off, so I replaced the pressure regulator and it still wont star

Did you change the fuel filter when you changed the fuel pump? If there was any water in the gas, it can cause the filter media to swell and effectively plug an otherwise clean filter.

3.8L V6 engine will turn over run 2 sec. shut down. replaced map, fuel inj., o rings, fuel pump, press. reg.,

There's no use guessing anymore, have a quailfied independent repair shop diagnose and fix it. Stay away from chain stores. The money you have already spent guessing would have it fixed by now. Ck the ASD and Fuel pump relays, and go from there. Is there any tropuble codes in the ecm? On some of these you can turn the ign key on-off 3 times and read codes from the ck eng light.

Should transmission oil be changed at 100k?

hi, many years of experience tells me that,clean air ,clean fuel, clean oil make for smaller dollars spent on repairs. on that basis your transmission fluid needs changing NOW.if you look at the oil on the dip stick,and it dark or burnt ,it is too late the damage is already done .I recommend oil change ,filter and band adjustment ,done now ,would be money well spent( its not expensive) and you could look forward to years of trouble free driving . ---------------"youdoit"

Car starts and runs for 20 seconds then shuts off . replaced fuelpump relay, no help.

If the vehicle is a 1997 or later there should be a trouble code stored before replacing expensive sensor attain a OBD II code reader to more accurately diagnos this problem, first replace the fuel pump this is money well spent anyway,be sure that the fuel system is depressurized before replacing the fuel filter
