Question about 1992 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Truck drives then shuts down

My check engine light came on. I have a 92 chevy truck. While driving my truck will start to sputter and the check engine light will come on. It will then die, then it wont start, when we try to start it it will backfire. Then the light goes off after a minute or two and it will drive again. My husband says that it doesnt seem to have all cylinders going... Can you help us PLEASE???

My 92 oldsmobile royale starts fine but after engine gets to normal temp the car starts to sputter and drive funny then will stop running.


Lightly tap on the case of the ECM, (silver box behind glove box) while it is running fine to see if it shuts down. If so. Replace ECM. Those were bad about the components on the board inside vibrating loose.
