When I had a problem with my silverado not starting, I replaced all of the spark plugs with factory plugs and then ran sea foam through it to clean it out.I seemed to work and have not had the problem recently.

I have a 2000 chevy 2wd chevy pick up that has been going through fuel pumps. I just had it replaced 2 days ago and while driving home, the check engine light came on and the code was for the throttle...

I would just like to ask what brand of pump you are replacing it with, as all of the aftermarket pumps for those trucks (GM) have been producing alot of defects lately my suggestion pay a few more bucks and get a bosch pump, I manage a part store and have seen too many of them come back defective the only cure was a good bosch pump

2000 silverado wont start

one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

2000 Silverado will not start

reach under your truck and hit the fuel tank a couple of times. If your fuel pump is going out, often it will get it going again (TEMPORARILY) enough to get it someplace to fix.

1995 Chevy 1/2 ton v6 starts then dies

The fuel pump inside the fuel tank might have a bad armeture or brush failure. Have someone crank the engine with the key inside the vehicle while holding foot on brake pedal and e-brake on.
Take a large hammer and bang on the bottom of the fuel tank while the engine is cranking. This should wake up the pump. This is only a temp. fix if the truck starts. That was a sign that the pump has failed and should be replaced.
Good Luck.

Hard starting

check the battery cable connection that is sandwiched between the battery and the outside cable, It runs the computer and if it is corroded, clean it with sandpaper. Mine was loose and corroded and I would stall out of no where.
