Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Truck died while driving

I have a 99 Chevy Silverado with a little over 103000 miles on it. I bought it used. I was driving home from work and it just died on me. I had enough speed built up to let it coast into a parking lot. I never could get it to restart. I had to have a friend of mine with a trailer help me get it home. Once I got it home, it started, but would only stay running if I kept pumping the gas and then only for a few seconds before it died again. I've replaced the fuel filter, it has plenty of gas in the tank. Any ideas?

Sounds like the fuel pump has failed, this is a common fault on this year, also the fuel pump connector is a problem at the gas tank, the new pump will come with a new connector, make sure you splice on the new connector, use a pair of wire crimp pliers and do it right or the problem will occur again.

Truck stalls when on rough roads


The truck is probably stalling on rough roads because the fuel pump float is not staying on the surface of the gasoline in the tank. Therefore, it is taking on air and interrupting the flow of fuel temporarily. It may be sticking a little and operating too slowly.
The fuel pump is inside your gas tank but can be removed and replaced by you if you are skilled enough.

05' Silverado Keeps dying out


Sounds like you have a dirty throttle body. This truck has whats called "drive by wire". There are no throttle cables. If you remove the air intake tube you can carefully clean with some carb cleaner and a rag. Reinstall the tube and let it idle for a few minutes so the computer can relearn the base idle. If this does not work you may have a defective throttle body.

I would have the computer scanned ( no SERVICE LIGHTS right ? ) looking for an errant coolant sensor not telling the computer to give your vehicle a bit RICHER ( a little bit more fuel ), since it does start. Just has POOR cold drive away. Hope this helps

It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free

Chevy Trucks, Blazers, S10 pickup and the like will vapor lock ecspecially the 2000 models. Do not tighten the gas cap past 1 click. There is a tube that runs from the top of the tank down and this gets hot and collapses or burns in half. We just bought a reinforced rubber tube cut it to lengh and use it instead of part and it's worked grat for 2 years so far.
