Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
Ok heres the problem i have a 1997 chevy tahoe with a 5.7 engine some times it acts like its not getting enough fuel it starts sometimes and sometimes it wont but if i spray some starting fluid in it it fires right up yeah to me it acts like the pump its not putting out enough pressure ant suggestions.
How did you determine its not the fuel pump?It could be the fuel filter but I dont think so.Your truck requires a certain amount of fuel pressure to start and a different amount to run properly.You would have to check what your fuel pressure is to say its not the pump.It should be something like 65 psi to start and 55psi to run.Even though you can hear the pump come on when turn the key it might not be putting out enough pressure to start the truck.I realize im a little late with this post but it might helpfull to others.

Fuel filter or fuel pressure regulator
