Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My 99 suburban wont start without starting fluid

It wont start when the motor is cold. And if its cold outside its almost impossible to get it started even with starting fluid. The only time it will start is once the motor is compleatly warmed up then shut off. If started while motor is still warm or hot it will fire up. I know its just a sensor. Its got a new batterie, plugs, wires, and cap and rotor button.

I had same problem. Engine will start if you crank it for awhile. This is because the fuel pump has a . check valve that is supposed to keep fuel from running back into tank and hold fuel at pressure so it will start immediately. If valve leaks it takes awhile for fuel to be pumped back up to injectors. Replacing fuel pump fixed my problem.

Car wont start without spraying starting fluid in it


I would check the compression. As air compresses it heats up. A trick I've used on cold diesels is to bump the starter trying not to let the motor actually turn over, so you keep compressing the same air. Do that a few times then try starting.

99 silverado wont start when below 35 outside when it hit 40 outside it starts and runs fine ????


First place I'd look is at the coolant temp sensor. If it's out of range the computer will not know it's cold out and therefore will not demand the amount of fuel necessary for a cold start.

My 99 chevrolet suburban starts but won't drive


9 times out of 10 it is low on Automatic trans fluid. Please check the fluid and the condition of the fluid. If it is brown and smells burnt, but the trans operates ok after toping up, get the fluid and filter changed. If the trans slipps ( motor reves and car dowes not go) it is time for a rebuild
Good Luck
