SOURCE: 1998 350 Silverado will not start

I believe that you have throttle body injection (TBI) Take off the air cleaner and have someone crank the engine look at the injectors and see if fuel is seen..Do you or have you smelled fuel when you were recently attempting to start truck???? if so this sounds like you are not getting spark....if you havent smelled fuel try priming TBI with gas and see if the truck fires...If so you know that problem lies in fuel delivery... On TBI systems it is very important that a conicle spray pattern is delivered by injectors for proper ignition if injector drips fuel into TBI this could cause a no start condition...To see if spray pattern is correct you can use a timing light if available...Hook it up as normal (red positive post and black negative post and pick-up on #1 spark plug wire) point light at injector and have assistant crank engine light allows visibility to spray pattern.....also check the fuel pressure regulator and vacuum lines....Hope this helped you..let me know if I can help anyfurther....Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: fuel gage goes to zero and then to full while driving

Sounds like the sending unit is bad, which is in the gas tank.

running out of fuel sucks the dirt off the bottom of the tank it might have caused it to fail i think you can get to it from under the back seat you can see if the pump has power there as well

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy with apparent electrical issues. It will sometimes start ok but not move. Other times it will start and drive just fine and then the Cruz won't work and all the gages are...

im not an expert but it could be your fuel injectors when they are not spraying enough gas you have to give it some gas for it not to die but the gages going out that could be a shortened fues or try giving it a tune up with seafoam you can look it up on youtube if you dont know how... just look up seafoam tune ups

2003 kia sportage starting problems

It could be a problem with the fuel pump or igntion module/ coil pack. The next time it stops, fuel pressure needs to be checked and have the ignition coil pack and module tested at a local parts store.

Dual fuel landrover discovery 1997 runs on gas but not fuel

Hi pal, I have been having similar problems with my gas conversion. I have a petrol mercedes sprinter that when it decides to run it runs fantastic, no complaints. However after spending the best part of £800 to solve the problem in several different garages things just seem to be getting worse. Every mechanic that I have spoken to has given me a different cause to the problem and 'fixed it' only for me to find that as soon as I get it home the problem reappears.If I keep it on petrol it runs fine, but if I change over to gas after a warm up period it makes a noise like it is trying to '**** ' the gas through but then the engine starts to sound like (you may remember this sound from childhood!) a lollypop stick clicking against your bike spokes. After a very short period the engine goes in to idle and finally cuts out. I am unable to turn the gas back onto petrol while this is happening.Occasionally if I stop the Sprinter and switch off the engine while on gas when I turn the ignition on again it can , when it feels like it, run absolutely fine again. The lollypop stick noise goes away and its great. Mechanics specialising in Sprinters have so called run diagnostics and have found no problem but they felt the need to change the wiring loom to solve the problem, that didnt work. Auto electricans have looked at it and have said it's possible there could be a dodgy wire somewhere! It has been back to the conversion garage and they say everything is working as it should, it must be a petrol problem. I am tearing my hair out over it. If you have since solved the problem I would be ever so grateful if you could let me know how it was solved. Thanks Helen from St Helens England.

Speedometer or fuel gage?

If speedometer which is bouncing around, it is likely a bad ground near where the speed sensor wire harness (which connects the speed sensor to the rest of the "network") exits the transmission housing. It's at the very back of the transmission (you have a 4T60E trans) to the left of where the right side half-shaft leaves the trans housing. Just look for damaged wires. If none, replace the speed sensor for $50-60.

If it is the fuel gage, the sensor is probably not "zeroed"--it's reading wrong, too high, and if it were to start at true "empty", it would read right. Thus, the gage is always reading a little high (maybe a 1/8-1/10th of a tank too high?). This isn't a problem until to stop, start, or turn quickly and cause the fule to slosh around in the tank and starve the in-tank pickup which sends fuel to the engine.

If it is the fuel gage, you should simply put as much fuel in as you can and see if the needle goes far above "F". If it does, note how far it went and then practice filling the tank when the needle is that same distance above "E".

Hope this helps.
