Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

3 Answers

Truck mysteriously and very seldomly shuts off usually imediatly after starting. the truck preforms excelent otherwise. it is a 98 chevy 1500 with 5.7 motor. Seems to be ignition related due to the fact that the battery holds charge and the altornator charges and the wires to the starter are adiquatly tight. Again, once this phenomina occures all I do is give it a nother turn and it usually starts, on occasions that it dosnt immediatly respond it only takes one or two more trys. Thanks anyone who can take a crack at it. Andrew in north georgia

MISTERKRONIC made a good guess since you did not mention engine light on on that year the flow senor could lose signal and die and not throw a code, Best thing before you do anything is take it to auto-zone or schucks to have the codes pulled, you may have to short pin 1 with pin 3 on the DLC to get codes, But don't remember for sure but strongly suggest you have it scaned and have you replaced the fuel pump or fuel pump sock? they are due to go bad soon.

Chevy diesal wont start


check that the battery is spinning the engine fast enough . A slow starter seldom starts a diesel.. Check for air in the fuel system and bleed any air out . Check that the glo-plugs are working. check that the stop solenoid is operational and allowing the pump to supply fuel. check for water in the fliters / blocked fuel filter.

98 chevy 1500 starts and then shuts right off have replaced fuel pump and filter ,crank sensor,cam sensor ,oil sen. coil,ign.mod and PCM


On some chevys the oil pressure sending unit closes the circuit to continue the fuel pump to run after start. In the event of a wreck ,the car stops running thus no oil pressure thus turns off power to the fuel pump .A safety to help prevent fires. When you first start the car, the computer turns on the fuel pump for about 20 seconds just enough time to start and allow the oil pressure sending unit to close the circuit to allow it to continue running. when the car car has NO oil pressure or the sending unit fails ,it will start then shut down..as many times as you try to start. replace the oil pressure sending unit and secure a good conection.

Truck runs for two seconds an shut down i changed fuel pump an filter and it still shuts down but it only stay running when i put gas down in the throttle body i had a 1996 chevy 1500 i was wondering can...


No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.
