Oil pressure gauge is reading zero


Could be the gauge on the dash. If you really had no oil pressure the engine would be very loud.
A mechanic would check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to verify.

2001 Tahoe will start but dies immediately


It is better to have a Higher Oil Pressure.. When shut off it reading 40 is just the gauge I would think. On my 78 Chevy the gauge will not zero out untill the next day when I go to start it and turn the key over. You might try running some Fuel stabilizer through it, Possibly a better Grade gas.. As the oil goes, If you are loosing oil I advise checking it Weekly, and add oil as needed.. to maintain the proper running level.. Change every 5000 miles or so as normal, Also Change filter each time you change the oil. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

Fuel gauge 2005 tahoe


9 times out of 10 it is a bad sender at the fuel pump . The pump and sender are built as one . It requires a new fuel pump . Ive had this happen before so my remedy until i could afford the new pump was to use the trip set on my odometer. I would fill it up and set the trip to 0 and once it hit 250 miles i would fill it up again . But that wont fix your problem , just get you by. It will need a new fuel pump and sender Airtex Electric Fuel Pump Assembly

99 tahoe dies after 2 seconds


Have a fuel pressure gauge hooked to it and see if you are holding good fuel pressure. Even new fuel pumps are bad right out of the box. This will eliminate a fuel problem.

I assume that you do not have a "check engine" light?

The next thing I would do is check the pressure from the fuel pump. You can have this done at your preferred garage, or by purchasing a fuel pressure gauge from any parts store.

Vent the fuel tank vapors by loosening the fuel cap. Remove the electric fuel pump fuse and start the engine. Allow the engine to run until it runs out of fuel and stalls. After spinning the engine over for a period of 3 to 5 seconds, turn off the ignition switch and install the electric fuel pump fuse. Next, install a fuel pressure gauge in the fuel rail supply line, and secure the fuel tank cap. With the ignition key in the on position, verify that no leaks are present and start the engine. Visually verify the PSI reading on the gauge. The pressure for your vehicle should be 41-47 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch). Hope this helps and good luck!

1998 Chevy tahoe Hard to start when cold


Hello, yes the check valve is in the fuel pump assembly. The check valve is leaking and the pump will burn out soon. Unfortunately the aftermarket fuel pumps can be very unreliable. A good portion of problems we see on this site are from people who replace the pump sometimes twice and it still doesn't work.
