Question about 1990 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

I have a 92 chevy silverado that recently will not start at times without pouring a little fuel into injectors. Once I pour the gas in, it will run as long as i am pushing on the accelerator. once i try to let idol it stalls and i have to open hood and add more gas. The weird thing is it only does it sporadically What can this be thanks BOB

Bob, I suspect the mas air flow sensor is faulty, or possibly the idle solonoid, take it down to Oriely's or Autozone {no charge} and they will code read it for you which should help you pinpoint the problem. hope this helps.

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

SOURCE: My 2005 Chevy Classic Malibu will not start.

Sounds like the fuel pump went bad, or a relay for the fuel pump. My guess it's a fuel pump more likely to have gone bad.

Maybe a coincidence that when you overfilled the gas at the gas station that it put the pump 'over the edge' as far as functioning.

I do not see a connection between overfilling and the fuel pump going bad at that instance, but anything is possible.

What would make a not start unless I pour gas into intake


Hi Clyde:
Since you mention "gas rail" I'm assuming fuel injected.
I'd check the fuel pressure in the rail. Should be around 40 PSI.
If pressure is OK then injectors not working. Time to check cps.
You know the spark side is OK since it will run.

I have a 92 chevy c1500,new fuel pump and filter but truck is hard 2 start.if i pour gas in throttle body bowl it starts right up. what could b the problem?


Sounds like the injector is not supplying the proper amount of fuel. Try unpluging the TPS first and then the IAC motor, both located on the trottle body.

YOUR BEST BET IS TO GO AHEAD AND REPLACE YOUR FUEL INJECTORS. BY POURING GAS IN TO YOUR INTAKE. YOU KNOW ITS GOT TO DO WITH YOUR FUEL SYSTEM. I TAKE IT YOUR CHECKING FURL PRESURE ON THE CHECK VALVE ON THE FUEL RAIL FOR THE INJECTORS. REPLCE THOSE AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD. JAKE.B

Is it possible that the computer on my 92 geo tracker is what's keeping it from starting???? will the engine turn but no strat????


turn the key to acc mode and if the check engine light is on then the computer is working. check for spark. listen for the fuel pump to turn on its in the back passenger side if both those work and you didnt mess with distributor plugs rotor or cap then you may have to bypass it. or the fuel injector could be clogged. take off the metal air intake to get to the fuel injector and pour a little gas directaly in and see if it starts. if fuel pump spark and pouring gas into were the fuel injector is then it might be a bad fuel injector or it needs to be bypassed.

Is there any way to test the injectors on my 98 chevy S10 4.3


DID you put in new gas, fuel treatment, new sock on fuel pump, all new fuel filters, buy inline fuel pressure gauge, check for codes?, this is not a carb where you pour fuel at it , do you have a repair manual for your truck and have you checked troubleshooting guide?
