My 1997 gmc 1500 suburban will not run but it pulls no dtc codes on the cpu

My 97 Suburban had a similar problem. Would not crank on a regular basis. Replaced spark plug wires, plugs and rotor cap. Vehicle cranked and ran just fine, plugs were in poor shape. Checked fuel pressure, above 55psi with engine running or just the switch turned on. Immediately after switching engine off the pressure would bleed off to "0" PSI. Otherwise everything OK. Problem solved, so I thought. A couple days latter I had to make a road trip from Mobile, Al to Fort Meyers, Fl when cranking problem re-occurred after approx. 100 miles into trip. I stopped at parts houses on the way to ask questions and to obtain their best ideas, at times it would take 30 minutes before engine would again crank after making a stop. I replaced almost all of the sensors. Finally made it to Fort Meyers that night. Next morning vehicle was dead would not crank no matter what I tried. Fuel pressure OK. Only thing left to replace, Fuel Injector spider system. Problem solved.

When i stopped the 1997 suburban 1500 it was running fine. i tried to start it 2 days later and it wont start. it sounds like the engine is fighting itself. it cranks then stops then cranke a little but...

check the timing and compression as this is a typical chevy senario, runs good it seems and shut off and now fights and locks up. Pull #1 plug, put into wire again and rest on exhaust manifold so electrode is very near metal, this will cause a spark. now put finger in the plug hole and crank motor, does the plug spark at the same time finger gets pushed off plug hole (compression) ? Also you can bring #1 cylinder to top ,(compression ) and remove dist cap, where the tab on rotor aims is it aiming to the plug wire in the cap that goes to the #1 spark plug. If any of this is not in line then the timing is off and you have to check. 1) timing chain and gear, 2) distributer gear on the bottom of dist which messhes with cam gear, (you can check this with cap off and try to spin or turn by hand.) And the most severe case is the cam broke, after all other checks you can pull off a valve cover and turn motor over and check all lifters for open close movement. I hope i didn't scare you . AND i also wish the easiest fix for you as well.

I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma. During the last 2 months when I start the truck in the morning I hear a "tac, tac, tac, tac ...." noise for 30s to 1 min than it stops when I drive away. This...

This is most likely a noisy lifter (or valve tappet). In cold weather, the clearances in the valve train open up because metal contracts due to the cold. Once the oil pressure comes up after start the noise goes away because the larger clearance fills with oil and the lifter becomes "cushioned" with the oil. The proper fix is to have the valves adjusted. I believe in your model, that is done by putting shims on the lifters. This will quiet the noisy lifters. In the short term, you can try using a lighter weight oil for cold weather. This will get the oil to the lifters faster after start up and quiet the tapping more quickly. Once the weather warms again, shift back to the normal weight.

My 2001 4x4 1500 Chevy Suburban with 249,000 miles is making a loud ticking noise intermittently, it mostly happens at stop lights, sometimes while just driving, but most especially when I start it in the...

Clicking is caused by lack of oil in the hydraulic lifters. If the car has had regular oil changes, the problem is probably the oil pump. If not, the engine may be shot with this much mileage. The part is $150 at autozone, but a shop may charge more. The labor for this job is about a day, so the total can easily be $600-900. If you have more questions, please let me know.

The car wouldn't start this morning battery is less than 1yr. old heard clicking sound so i bought a new starter can't find where it is and now the car started just fine? 1997 chevy sub. 1500 2wd. v-8

Often, if the car sometimes cranks and sometimes doesn't, the problem you're describing can be caused by loose battery connections. Check that the battery terminal connectors are clean and connected securely.
