Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

Fuel system shot, must remove top part of engine, costly, $1,200.00new system

1996 Suburban check engine light on. My Mechanic states that it is a bad fuel system, plus it needs a tune up, but fuel pressure test OK. IF I CAN EXPLAIN WHAT HE SAID The original part was plastic and has worn out so the correct amount of fule is not being sent to the fuel system. In order to fix this, they must remove the top part of the engine to get to the fuel system. THE MECHANIC SAID I SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING THIS BECAUSE I will do more damage. cost $1,200.00 and if I just do a tune up it will be a waste of money

MMmm plastic what injectors .. you might need to remove the fuel rail and intake plenum to work ... but theres nothing plastic down below the manifold... if the wrong amount of fuel in an OBD2 car or truck burns too much fuel the oxygen sensor reads it and the computer automatically cuts or leans fuel to the motor through the injectors for the green people .=)

Yes, it sounds like it is a fuel problem, whether it be the fuel pump, or more probably the catalytic converter. That check engine light can be checked by a mechanic where they can hook up to the engine and get the true error code to know why the light came on. Most often, it is an indicator that there is a problem with the catalytic converter. When that light goes on, the engine usually will run itself at reduced power. This could be why you are stalling when it is idle. Another thought is clogged fuel injectors, can't be sure, bring it to a mechanic for sure.
Good luck!! EJ Kudelka

check for spark at the plugs..if you have spark..get some auto mobile starter fluid ..spray some in engine intake.. if engine starts ..you have a fuel deltvery problem..that should narrow your your problem down..your fuel pump might be good..there are other parts in your system that will cause pump not to work.. such as plug fuel filter/pump relay..ecm..fuel pump fuse etc..take it one step at a time..guessing is costly

1999 Chevrolet Suburban cylinder 3 misfiring?


P0300 is a multiple cylinder misfire and is used by all OBD2 vehicles on the road in the USA that is 1996 and newer, P0301 is cylinder number 1..P0302 is # 2 and so on...that tune up may have been needed and parts and labor are expensive..you have a cylinder that is misfiring and the cause must be located..possible causes are intake manifold air leaks..secondary ignition problems..fuel injectors..plugged EGR system if it has one..failed head gasket..burned or cracked valves..I have seen some crazy stuff..you need a tech on that one not a mechanic.

1998 suburban will not start


you might try changing the fuel filter first..its located just below the drivers door and is like a cannister.also check your catalytic converter.if its clogged it wont let it run on its own.i have a suburban and just went throguh what you are now. my fuel pump wasnt bad but i put in a new one anyway. it cost about 56.00 i think and its in the tank.which is held in place by 2 straps try the filter first and go from there. the converter is hard to check but if you tap it and hear anything moving inside it means its on its way out.when you take the filter off turn the key over to see if you get any gas....if you do then your pump is good if you dont then youll need to replace it

Random misfiring on pistons on a 1996 chevy suburban


1st thing to check is the intake manifold for vacuum leaks, also check and make sure the EGR valve is not leaking when it is closed, to check the intake buy a can of carb spray and sray around the top of the engine, if a leak is present there will be a very noticeable change when the spray is near the vacuum leak. To check the EGR Valve start the engine cold, wait a minute or 2 then spray water on the EGR, if it steams up the water it is leaking exhaust into the engine, this will cause a rough run as well.
