Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2000 Chevy Silverado Z71 hard to start

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

Sounds like a steering pump or steering gear problem. Remove Power sterring pump cap while engine is running and see if fluid is moving. GM's are bad about PS pump shafts breaking. If no fluid movement, Replace pS pump

I have a 2000 chevy silverado Z71. The drl quit

There is a light sensor that tells the truck if it is night or day on the dash. Make sure that is it not covered up. If is is not then you may have a bad sensor. It sounds like the sensor is telling the truck that it is night every time the truck is running.

Start the tuck with the park brake on to see if the light come on when it starts. If they do you have a bad relay if not it is most likely that sensor on the dash.
