SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Silverado Z71 hard to start

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

SOURCE: truck cranks but won't start

I just a very similar issue with my 1997 Chevy K1500. I changed all of the fuel components and the issue turned out to be the two prong thermostat sensor on the front of the engine. If your car will start by pressing the gas pedal all the way to floor then the issue most likely is the same. A code engine reading from that sensor will cause the vehicle to not shift into overdrive, degrade gas mileage, and make the truck hard to start when the engine is warm. If it isn't starting when cold check the fuel pressure at the injectors turn the key on and the pressure should go to about 65 psi and when you turn the key off the pressure should hold to about 60 psi.

How do u reset the time on a honda civic 2004

Press and hold the CLOCK button until you hear a beep. Change the hours by pressing the H (Preset 4) button until the numbers advance to the desired time. Change the minutes by press the M (Preset 5) button until the numbers advance to the desired time. When you are finished, press the CLOCK button.
Vehicles without CD Player
Adjust the hours by pressing and holding the CLOCK button, then pressing the H (Preset 4) button. Adjust the minutes by pressing and holding the CLOCK button, then pressing the M (Preset 5) button
You can quickly set the time to the nearest hour. If the displayed time is before the half hour, press and hold the CLOCK button until you hear a beep, then press the R (Preset 6) button to set the clock back to the previous hour. If the displayed time is after the half hour, the clock sets forward to the beginning of the next hour.
For example: 1:06 will reset to 1:00 or 1:52 will reset to 2:00
Hope this gets you there.

Clock resets at startup

Does your radio stations also reset at start-up or sometimes do they reset? If you battery is weak and it takes a lot of power to start your vehicle it could reset your clock and sometimes clear your radio stations as well.

2005 chevy trailblazer cd player won't eject cd

I have a 06 Z71 and it did the same thing so more than likely your just going to have to buy a new cd player. I would recommend going with an aftermarket cd player because you probably going to spend just as much on another stock unit.

The stepping motors in the gauges go bad. do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options. The dealer charges around $300.00. It will continue to worsen.
