If you hear a hissing sound from the gas cap then the o ring that seals the tank is either cracked or tore. the tank has to build up pressure. thats where u r hearing the hissing sound replace it, it should stop after.

1996 GMC Suburban will start, but shortly after, it will bog down and die. In drive gear, truck wont go over 25 mph. and when I brake, the truck dies.I have replaced the fuel pump already, but the problem...

Can you hear a hissing sound? by saying the engine dies when you apply the brake makes me think you may be loosing vacuum and the brake booster my be bad.This will make the engine stall.

My 1998 chevy z71 truck will turn over but will not start

If the truck turns over, but will not start. The most common problem is the fuel pump. When you turn the key to the ON position, you should hear the fuel pump run for about 2 seconds. You may have to open the gas cap to hear it. If you can't hear it with the gas cap off, then that is going to be your problem. They are in the top of the fuel tank. And they are not real easy to change. You either have to drop the fuel tank or take the bed off. I personally take the bed off. It is a lot easier if you have a couple of people to help you. Dropping the tank is no fun at all. Plus it makes getting the ring that holds the fuel pump in a lot more difficult to get off.
If this helps you please rate by checking the 4 thumbs up! Thanks for using

My truck is a 96 toyota t100.. The engine will turn over but not start.. Its not the battery no fuses are blown the only thing i could think of is the fuel pump any ideas?????

Have someone hold their ear to the gas tank filler tube with the cap off, while you turn the key to the "run" position. You don't need to turn the engine over. Just turn it to "run". The person at the cap should hear the fuel pump cut in and whir for 2 or 3 seconds and then stop. If there is nothing, you probably need a fuel pump.

My fuel tank seems to be building excessive pressure, I've changed the gas cap twice, it doesn't matter if the tank is empty-full!! Also, the truck is hard to start unless I cycle the key two or three...

Yeah that is what it seems like thats why you have to turn your key on so many times to prime your fuel pump. Its not holding pressure in the line while truck is not running.
