Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1996 silverado 5.0 that won't start. I have checked the fuel pump, checked the fuel relay and replaced the fuel filter. I have fuel to the pressure valve at the top of the engine. It will turn over after pouring gas into the throttle body, but will die once the fuel is burned. I have run out of ideas. Not real familiar with the fuel injection system, so I dont know what to check next.

Might be a bad injector or one whole side of the fuel rail. For some reason fuel isn't getting into all the cylinders.

I have a 1996 chevy silverado 2500 every once in a while it will stop running,when i pull the fuel pump relay out and put back in it starts back up. it is very warm to the touch,just noticed today tha


I would just replace the relay. Then if it still happens, your fuel pump is drawing too many amps. Causing the relay to overheat and shut off. Time to replace the pump, before it dies on you.

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

The engine turns but the car won,t start.


You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.

FUEL PUMP FOR CHEVY SILVERADO


fuel filter? how about power to the fuel pump,loose ground wire to chasis? wiring harness? terminals clean at point of connection?did you check the fuel pump relay? Relay is located in electrical center under the hood on the driver side.relay and fuse legend will be on bottom side of cover, you sould be able to switch with another relay that you know works, ie: switch horn relay with fuel pump relay, honk horn to insure both relays are working when either relay is inserted into horn slot. Do you by chance have the electrical schematic drawing for the fuel pump?

1996 silverado 5.7 vortec cranks but wont start. fuel pump, gauges, "idiot" lights, blinkers do not work. flashers and all the rest of lights operate. Just replaced coil and this happens


Had the same problem with my '96 Silverado with 350 Vortec. The truck would only crank. It would start if fuel was poured down the throttle body. Could not hear the fuel pump hum. Fuse was good, but could not hear relay click. Relay was good, Did some electrical wiring trouble shooting. Turned out that one of the connectors that clasp onto one of the pins of the fuel pump relay wasn't making a good connection, too loose. I just stuck a peice of wire into the connector and pushed the relay back in. Relay clicked, Truck Started. It's been more than 4 yrs. since I made that McGuyver fix. Still firing.
