Question about 1988 Chevrolet C1500
Was runing ok now it won't start up. i change gas filter/clean carb/has gas.whats next?
I had a similar problem with an S-10 some time back, and I understand that the 88 C1500 has the same fuel pump setup. Two questions you must answer: First, did it run out of gas just before the problem started? Second, if you remove the air cleaner cover and pour just a little gas into the carb/throttle body, will the truck start and run until the gas is used up? If you answer 'yes' to the last, or to both questions, the problem may be in the electric fuel pump mounted in the gas tank. In my case, when my son was driving the truck, he would let the fuel level get really low before putting gas in the tank. Fine contaminant particles would build up on the fuel screen, and caused premature pump failure when some of the contaminant particles passed through a small hole in the screen and wrecked the pump impeller. Give it a look-see.
