Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Our 2001 chevy Silverado won't stay running after we start it. It will start for just a second and then die. A neighbor replaced the fuel filter and that didn't help. I checked the fuses they look fine. I've never done work on a vehicle except to check and fill fluids. However, funds are tight and if it is the fuel pump we can't afford to pay someone to replace it. I'm pretty handy with little fix-it stuff around the house including small appliances just from getting in there and seeing how things work. I can do that a little with vehicles too. My husband isn't very handy at the house but ok with changing air filters and changing the oil on our riding mower. The question is I know this is about a 3 hour job for someone experienced. If we were told how to do it could my husband and I change the fuel pump ourselves?
Yea i don't see why not. There's a couple of things you need to know before you get started. You should grab yourself a manual of some sort at a local parts store. also the fuel lines that connect to fuel pump are very contrary and hard to get off be careful as to not damage the line. And I also would recommend if funds will allow to go with a GM replacement pump rather than a chep generic one. The job is not as hard as it sounds.
