1998 Chevy tahoe Hard to start when cold

My 1998 chevy tahoe with 5.7 Liter, 4X4 Automatic is hard to start when the motor is cold, runs good & starts ok when it is warmed up. Acts like it may be flooded. I've replaced the fuel pressure regulator & fuel filter. The fuel pump has been replaced about 16 months ago (twice). There isn't any fuel pressure in the lines after it sits for a short time, where is the fuel pressure draining to? Thought it might be the check vavle in the fuel pump, or the seals in the fuel injection module. I have a 5.7 liter Vortec and takes two maybe three cranks to start. After warm starts every time. I have recently replace fuel pressure regulator and did not help. Any advise, thanks

    My 1998 Chevy Tahoe starts hard when cold. The starter will just crank and crank. I have to try it several times to get it to start. Once it starts, it no long has starting problems for the rest of the day, and runs just fine.

    I would have put my money on it being the IAC (my 97 does the same thing)

Replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump

    I have a 1998 tahoe 5.7. I had the same problem of hard cold start, I changed the map sensor, fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, fuel filter, distributor, spark plugs/wires, and still had the same problem. I finally changed the scfi fuel injectors to the mfi fuel injectors and now it runs like new. Starts in half a crank and runs great. so Im guessing that the injectors were clogged. If u dont want to changed out the injectors because the OEM injectors cost around 72 dollars each then buy the whole kit like me for $350. Or u can buy a fuel injector cleaner with a hose and valve that screws right onto the fuel purge valve and start the motor, make sure u pull the fuel pump relay so the fuel pump isnt running so that the fuel injector cleaner runs straight in to the fuel system and cleans the injectors the right way.

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.

Chevy Tahoe sputters than dies


i would first try to replace the fuel filter.usually there filter accumalates debris in the gas tank especially if you you ru the tank close to empty.filter location needs to be traced from the tank toward the motor.you will see a cylinder inline with a strap.part usually runs around 20.00. also when you initally turn the key before start you will hear a hum for about 2 sec. this is the fuel pump pushing the fuel up to motor.so if you hear this pump is working.

Computer showing any codes? Could be a bad regulator or a leak in the system allowing air in and fuel to flow back to the gas tank.

fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. When you turn the key do you hear fuel pump run? If not odds are the pump is bad.
