Question about 1988 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

1 Answer

Do I need a fuel pump for my 88 chev silverado?

Sometimes my truck will idle and sometimes it will not, it'll just die. The service engine light is now coming on. We've changed plugs, plug wires and fuel filter. Do I need a new fuel pump or is there something else you'd try before that?

    Have you checked all the vacuum hoses? Better yet, replace them all considering the age of your truck. Is it a carb or fuel injection?

The only experience I have had like this was a 94 sunbird. It idled bad sometimes it would die out at stop signs but once you go up to speed it seemed to run fine. I changed plug wires and problem went away. If check engine light is on check the code. I never had a check engine light.

Check the EGR valve. Sometimes these get a piece of carbon stuck in the valve and cause a very bad idle but run good on the road. Any check engine light on? If so have the codes pulled by the parts store and post them. Don't forget to check fuel pressure, sometimes this will not turn on a light.
