Check the fuel pressure. It needs to be 55 or higher no less.

I have to prime my chevy suburban to get it to start, it will run after that what could it be?


Either the pump is not running when you turn the key on, or the check valve or pressure regulator is allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the gas tank when the engine is off.

2003 chevy suburban wont start in the morning after sitting over night, if it has less than half a tank of gas?


it sounds like you have a fuel line problem inside the tank,maybe a pinhole, once fuel level gets below pinhole the line loses pressure. once it loses pressure you have to keep turning switch on & off too get pressure built back up.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 1999 GMC YUKON WITH THE 5.7 ENGINE HAVING TO JUMP START ALL THE TIME TO GET IT RUNNING, THE PROBLEM WITH MINE WAS THE FUEL PUMP HAD TO BE REPLACED, EVEN WHEN I REMOVED THE PUMP AND TURNED THE KEY FUEL PUMPED OUT BUT WAS NOT ENOUGH PRESSURE TO GET AND KEEP THE ENGINE RUNNING.I ALSO TRIED STARTER FLUID, THE ENGINE WOULD RUN UNTIL THE FLUID BURNED OFF.SO THE SOLUTION FOR MY TRUCK WAS THE FUEL PUMP AND NOW ITS STARTING LIKE A CHAMP

1997 chev. suburban new fuel pump and regulator WILL NOT START


Check fuel pressure and fuel flow, If the pressure is lower than what is recomended injectors will not function correctly , no start condition (trys real hard though)

Fuel pressure regulator had no vacuum line connected


another engineers wet dream. think of it this way . what is normally in the intake when the engine is running.. answer vacume, hence the regulator gets its vacume without a hose connected to it as its already in a full time vacume chamber.no hose required . ps be carefull to seat the regulator and o rings securely into the housing befor you reattach the secureing metal clip.
good luck chris
