Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner and read out any codes--follow the clues to repairs. One quick check for spark is to pull one of the spark plug wires and hook the wire to a spare plug then lay the plug on engine metal. Watch for regular sparks as the engine turns over (it helps to have a extra person to run the starter.

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...

Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?

What would cause gas to be in the oil

On this 1999 silverado there are only a few things that would cause gas in the oil system one being a bad leaking fuel preassure regulator or a leaking injector. the engine should be running rough or rich and should have turned on the engine light. there are not any other ways to get gas in the oil but these are the most common but again the engine would not run to good and the check eng light would be on. the injector depending on the injection system would flood out the cylinder and make it skip inorder to get gas in oil, the most common would have to be the regulator leaking, but that would also make it run rich, if you remove the upper intake pelinum and turn ignition on but DONT try to start engine, a matter of fact dissconnect coil wire to avoid spark or a fire. with key on watch for fuel leaking out of regulator. have someone turn key on as you look at regulator.

I just replaced a fuel pump on my 1999 chevy 4.8l and now it will not start at all. I can hear the fuel pump turning on but when I try to start it, it is acting like it isnt getting any gas.. checked all...

Try this------- turn ignition on, wait for pump to stop, then turn back on, do this about 5 times so the pump can build up pressure in the line.
After the 5th time, hold the throttle down about half way, if there isn't some other problem, it should fire up.

I changed the fuel filter, oil, replaced the battery, added some heet to the full tank of gas and it stil wont stay started. gas is getting to the engine, checked the stem on the engine. it will turn...

Hi, under the hood you will have a electrical box with about 4 relays in it. You will find one that is marked fuel. The relays are the same, so try changing 1 with the fuel one. They should be marked on the inside cover. This happened to me, and after switching relays, it was fine. I bought another for $11.95 to carry with me. Mine was a 2000 Silverado 1500. Please get back to me and let me know if this does the trick!

While driving the tach drops to zero and the truck starts to breakup , like its running out of gas or no spark, then it catches back on

You may have an electronic control module failing. (ignition module).

The RPM signal comes thru it.

Also if the crank sensor is dropping out the engine will act like its shutting off and catching which would also cause the rpm to drop out.
