Question about 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

No fuel to motor

I own a 93 Suburban 1500 5.7 and I noticed the last few times I drove it the power wasn't the same. Sometimes at stop signs it would act like it wanted to die but I fluttered the gas pedal it kept going. Well today while driving along there all of a sudden wasn't any power when I pushed on the gas and I pulled over and it sputtered and died. I can turn the motor over and it will start and then die. Is this a fuel pump? A02 Censor. Help me please.
Thank you

    Well the fuel pump runs when you turn the key and the fuel filter was changed a week ago. After siting for a few hours it started and I drove it about a mile all the while fluttering the gas pedal and finally it just choked off and I had to be towed home. We noticed that the cats had been removed from this suburban so that checked that off the list. Why is this Suburban having no power and coughing, sputtering and dying? I am stumped.

I've been working on a 1997 Suburban 1500, It

After you replaced the thermostat did you run the engine with the radiator cap of for 20-30 minutes? If you did not then chances are you have an air bubble in your cooling system. If you remove your radiator cap and run your engine for 20-30 minutes that should solve your problem. Be sure you have extra water or coolant on hand when you do this because you may lose some during this process. If you want you can look in the tips section of this site. I have a step by step instructions as how to do this on there. I hope this helps you out.

It still could be the fuel pump. Sometimes they don't just quit outright. Go to the vehicle. Reach through the open driver's side window. Turn the key forward to the run position. Listen toward the rear of the vehicle for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a humming noise that should last a couple seconds and stop. If you don't hear anything it's your fuel pump.

Loss of power replaced plugs,wires,cap and rotor button 93 suburban.Has more power when cold at low speeds. powerbrake when cold 2100 rpm,same when operating temp only 1500 rpm.

check TPS (throttle position sensor) when cold the vehicle coolant temp sensor signals to the engine control computer to push more fuel which could be causing you the extra power felt,a bad may sensor could also be an issue as well,internal distributor parts as well could be a failing fuel pump, one that "warms" up a bit and wont push as much fuel, i have actually encountered that issue a few times in my own vehicles as well as that of others

2002 chevy suburban shutting off whil driving in extreme heat

I had the same problem with mine. I installed a fuel pressure gauge, and drove around until the problem started. The truck should be running between 48 to 56 lbs. of fuel pressure. Mine ran at idle at 42lbs. , not even high enough. Drove it for about 20 minutes, and it started to stumble. Fuel pressure dropped to 30lbs, 20 lbs - then all the way down to 2lbs. I shut it off, and it would not start back up. 30 seconds later, I turned the key and it came up to 10lbs. press. 10 more seconds 20lbs. After almost a minute, it came up to 42 lbs. started and I drove away. I replaced the fuel pump assemb. on 7/3/2008. Drove it around,and the problem is gone. Mine is a flex fuel, and the pump retails for $668.00. I did find a AC Delco pump for $221.00. I hope this helps.

The Rear Wipers on my 2001 1500 Chevy Suburban Stopped working

Unplug the connector at the rear wiper motor, turn the switch on and probe the wires with a test lamp, if you have power back there you more than likely have a bad motor. If there is no power start checking fuses they are all labeled easily on the back side of the fuseblock covers both on the dash and underhood. Good Luck!!!

1998 Dodge Ram Dies at times when I let off the gas and stop

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9 liter in it, i couldnt keep it running when i stopped at stop signs, the two things i tried, was taking off the air cleaner and sprayed carb cleaner into the intake manifold with the engine running, using the carb cleaner and the throttle linkage to keep it running, before i did this i noticed the throttle valves were dirty, so I inspected the air filter housing and saw it was cracked in multiple places. The second thing i did was reset the computer using a scanner then took my truck out on the highway and drove at least 50 MPH for at least a mile which re-learned the computer. I hope this helps you, it sure worked for me.

Display reads "Engine Power Reduced" and sometimes won't accelerate beyond idle. Other times it accelerates normally. We have not yet noticed a pattern.
