Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Every other time that I try to start my truck it sounds like it has to crank 4-5 times to get going. All other times it starts right up with no problems. This happens hot or cold. Some people say to start with the fuel pressure regulator, but others have said that they've changed it and it didn't help. Any clue?
Pull the vac line off the regulator right after you stop the engine. See if there is gas in the vac line if so the regulator is bad. If no gas is present it could be the check valve in the fuel pump letting the gas pressure leak down. Get a set of gauges and hook up to the fuel lines and check for pressure loss. You will have some loss but should hold steady for several hours. Another thing to try is turn the key on and off several times before trying to start this will charge the lines if this works every time you are losing fuel pressure. If you still have trouble when doing this I would look somewhere else besides the fuel system
