SOURCE: car engine will not crank

on the starter there is a big battery cable and a small signal. wire connect a test light to the signal wire and try to crank the engine. if the light comes on then you will need a starter. be sure you have good connections first good luck.bye the way the light should only be on when you hold the key in crank pos.if the light is on all the time you are on the wrong wire.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy silverado 1500 v8 battery drain after sits for 1or2day

, do a simple test on the charging system...check battery voltage. should be 12v or better. start engine & check volts at idle, no accessories on. volts should read 13.5 -14v. Turn on all accessories(including headlamps on high) volts should drop slightly but should not creep down. Definitely not below 12.5. If voltage drops lower than 12.5, the regulator (in the alternator) is not working. either change regulator or change entire alternator. Alternator drive belt should have sufficient tension so that alternator cannot be turned easily by hand. If it can, check belt tensioner.

SOURCE: '92 Chevy pu V8 will not start spray in starting

With your Clarifications I suggest having the Fuel Pump Pressure Tested as one other gentleman suggested that it is most likely bleeding down overnight. Another possibility would be the Fuel Filter being clogged. The factory recommendation is to change fuel filters every 30,000 miles. Many people do not even know a Fuel Filter exists on their vehicles. Some years back they were near or in the carb. Weak Ignition would be the last thing to look into as the vehicle runs somewhat normally once started and running for a while. Modern vehicles have Electric Fuel Pumps inside the Fuel Tank. This is somewhat expensive to replace but necessary maintenance after many many miles. Good Luck!

The problem is if driven everyday the battery stay charged and the truck starts let it set 24 to 48 hrs and the it won't start and will barely light the dome lights.


Hi:
I was going to suggest having the battery tested but it seems you should have covered that with the replacement.
Unless you got a bad one (hope you put a new one in), I'd be looking for something connected that is drawing power.
Has anything been changed recently?
How long has the problem been happening?
Is the vehicle new to you?
My questions are intended to help identify possible sources of the problem.
Reply as a COMMENT on this post and I'll try to help.
Cheers.

Sluggish on acceleration


May be one of several things, most likely cause is the fuel pump, I've replaced so many fuel pumps on the Chevy trucks its crazy. Veh needs more fuel to take off then it does just cruising around you need to have a fuel gauge put on it and test drive it to see what the pressure does when it's acting up, should stay above 48-50 psi. Vehicle will run even as low as 20 PSI but it will be weak..
