Question about Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

I have a 2001 chevrolet tahoe that will not crank. Starter turns over and just put a brand new battery and replaced a very clogged fuel filter. It started sputtering while running and then died. I seem to be getting pretty high fuel pressure at the rails since changing the filter. air filter is also new. checked all fuses and and are all good.

    does your instrument cluster have a amp gauge for the battery? If so what does it read? It sounds like you may just have a loose ground connection. This would still allow the system to crank, however may cause it not to turn over.

Why won't the starter stop running?


Sounds like the starter solenoid is deffective on your new starter. I would check the power wire and make sure it is not grounded. If the power wire and ground make a connection it completes the circui. I have had numerous brand new starters that have had defective solenoids and would keep turning after trying to crank.

I changed the distributor cab/spider injector /fuel pump and still sometimes it will crank but not start today i will try the pressure release valve sometime when it does it i press that some fuel will...


no fuel? only means a clogged fuel filter, a bad fuel pump relay, or faulty fuel pump. Starter switch sometimes but rarely occur, but worth checking if nothing else fixes your problem.

I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

Engine turns over, but will not start.


Check the fuel pump for pressure by removing the send line from the fuel filter and ranking the car. Place the line in an empty 2 liter soda bottle and have a friend crank the engine a couple of times to see if the pump sends fuel. If not, replace the fuel pump an replace the filter since you will have a line removed already.

My 98 tahoe will not start


You mean when you said it tries to crank but didn't, you mean start right. It did crank ok just wouldn't start?
Sounds like it could be a bad fuel pump or clogged fuel filter. You need to check to see if there is spark. Pull one of the spark plug boots off and put a nail, paper clip, anything you can inside of the boot and put it on top of your engine and have someone turn the engine over to see if there is spark to the plug wire. Let me know back what you find out.

Car wont start


Check your starter motor, sounds like a dud winding in it. Then starter reeds to be overhauled / replaced.

Can you bump start it or is auto? If it's a stick shift you can try to bumpstart it, if it starts then its a good chance that the starter is fried.

'96 Chevy Tahoe won't start


i had similar problem. hard to start in morning but once started, would start everytime until next morning. i changed fuel pump, filter, fuel pressure regulator, coil, cap, rotor, pickup coil, battery. i was finally told the '96 had a recall on the fuel injection assemby. i changed that out with the new mpf system and it solved the problem. runs like a striped ape. hope this helps.
