Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
Its a 1997 chev 5.7l 1500. It was running fine, went to town and started sputtering, finally died and got it towed. Changed fuel, not it, then got the codes of, told me it was front oxygen sensors, changed them, not it. Now I'm thinking fuel pump or strainer because it takes a bit to start but idles and run fine for about 1/4 throttle then starts to hesitate and backfire if you put your foot into it anymore, and the fuel pump is stuttering, instead of get that higher sounding whine. So is it fuel pump or just the strainer or is it somthing else??
Marshall, Before going to the expense of replacing the fuel pump, I would recomend a fuel pressure check. If you do not have the equipment, take it to your favorite mechanic and ask them to check. The pumps and strainers run between $180 to $400 depending if reconditioned, new and brand.
Let me know.
