Question about 2000 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Starting Problem My 2000 Chev Sub has started to have problems starting. Sometimes its slow to turn over, other times not. It could take as many as three starts, some being very slow, finally kicking over. The battery has been checked and is good. I believe I may be looking at an alternator problem?

Fully charge the battery and see if it starts like it should. If your battery is fully charged, but still turns over slowly, its your starter. If using a fully charged battery solves your problem, its your alternator.

Most likely, this is your starter bendix going bad. Time for a new starter. Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 silverado sometimes start, other times not so much

To determine if recognizing park is the issue simply place vehicle in neutral and attempt to start with your foot firmly on the brake. Starter may have a missing tooth or starter solenoid may have an issue. I would also check ground wire to frame and connections at the starter for fraying or loose connection

SOURCE: 2000 chevy impala starting problem

i used to work as a GM mechanic for years, and we had quite a few complaints like yours, GM issued a computer reprogram to resolve most issues with starting, i would contact your local dealer and have them check for open campaigns or bulletins for your car if there is one they will do it at no cost to you.

SOURCE: 1998 Chev Blazer - Hard Starting - Sometimes Dies When Idling

If your blazer is hard to start you can spray starting fluid in the throttle body and it is under the air horn. You remove the long screw which reveals the throttle body valve but do not press it open like a caruberator float just spray it in their. It helps if you turn the key on three times and then it should start. What does this all mean; Fuel Pump! I'm sorry but blazers are infamous for the fuel pump going out. Go to and you can find a fuel pump for your blazer for like 70 dollars. If you get it from a auto parts store it's going to be like 200 or 300 dollars. It's not to hard to due but the fuel tank strap bolts can be difficult.

too many possibilities. IE: fuel pump relay, ignition relay, Coils, wiring failure, bad starter, fuel pump, fuel filter. The list goes on and on. A local GM experienced mechanic can eliminate most of these within minutes with an inspection.

When starting my 2002 tundra, V-8 engine it sometimes just clicks or turns over very slow and other times starts right up, warm or cold. I checked the battery, and battery connection and all was good..

Check the connections to the battery, that they are shiny and clean and wire brush vigorously, if necessary at the contact points.

Remove the negative cable first.

Anti theft system on my 2000 malibu goes off when driving

Its your ignition switch. Its not recognizing when you turn it to the start position. The little terminals inside the switch get burned and wear down. When mine went out, the whole power to the dash would flicker, even cut out when driving. I actually wired my system to 1 toggle switch for on and off, I kept the anti theft wires attached to the switch. I also have a starter switch, if I fail to turn the key like I'm trying to start the car, the theft light comes on and the car dies right after starting.

Hi I have a 2001 nissan patrol 3litre auto,and am having problems with cold starting,when glow plugs go out Istart when it turns over it is slow and when it starts the motor rattles and misses for a minute...

There isn't enough temperature in the cylinders for starting. I would suggest one or more of the glow plugs is not performing or sub-performing causing this issue
