SOURCE: we have a 2003 chevy suburban 5.3 vortec it dies when warmed up

Sounds like either Air mass sensor, Air mass meter or finally the EGR valve this is the exhaust gas recycler I would say that is the fault when they start to go this is what they do until finally the car will barely move.

Also I would check all your air pipes for leaks make sure there is no rips or tears in the pipes, The car will drive fine like you say until you ease of the gas to a stop position it **** in to much air and kills the engine. Air faults are cheaper so look there first.

Hope this helps

Regards
Dan

SOURCE: my 1996 chevy suburban wont start

If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.

1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).

2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)

3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.

Here is a list of replacements:

^ water pump
^ thermostat
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)

**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

96 chevy blazer won't start.


I'm following another issue like this on a 1996 Jimmy.
This engine requires 60psi or more fuel pressure to run.
You need to have someone check the fuel pressure at the rail- throttle body with a gauge.

I've had numerous issues just this summer with my 2008 LTZ Suburban. The dealership has replaced the battery, some module and, it's back in as we speak to have both runnimg board motors replaced because they both locked up again! A friend of mine owns a 2009 LTZ Suburban and has started having intermittent problems with her running boards, too. When it's time to up-grade, I will NOT be getting retractable running boards again!!

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.

My 1996 chevy suburban stalls to turn on when it is cold..it takes 2 to 3 try's to start..but once its been running it starts on the first try. what might be the problem?


mcdevito75 here, It could be the fast idle sensor, this acts like the old chokes that enrich the fuel mixture to keep a cold engine running a bit faster at a cold start. Have your local shop check it out.
