Question about 1990 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Truck starts,but cuts right off.. It finally started and made it home but will not stay running!! Could this be the timing??? It has a strong gas odor,but i think that is because i tried to start it over and over again!! When it finally started,it ran great all the way home!! But is having the same problem again!! Anyone have a clue what this problem could be??

My car starts then turns off after 7 minutes then starts right back up then turns right back off what could b causing this ?


What year is your car?
Try Spaying some starter fluid before it cuts out and if it tries to stay running it is a fuel issue. When was the last time you changed your air filter, PCV Valve, and gas filter.

Car wont stay started unless foot on gas pedal


This could be a lot of things. IT could be the injectors or the fuel pump pressure, it could be the air intake, vacuum leak, etc.

Sounds like fuel pump is bad. Running fuel low puts alot of strain on electric fuel pumps. The fuel acts as a coolant for the pump, that's why it's advisable to keep at least 1/2 tank. It sounds like your pump finally just gave up. Pump might be making noise but it could just be spinning and not pumping. Have someone test your fuel pressure to confirm.

Car was parked and running and just killed on its own and will not start. does this sound like the fuel pump or maybe fuel filter?


If the battery is strong and charged, starter is fine, car ran okay while getting progressively worse until it died and won't restart now, might be fuel filter or pump. I've dealt with two cars with fuel filter issues. Both would idle fine, but run progessively worse under load and eventually die and not start although everything else checked out. Engine turned fast enought to start, battery strong, alternator fine, air cleaner clean, all that. No start. Changed fuel filters and done. Everything back to normal. Both cars were about model year 1990 (1989 and 1991). Replaced one in a parking lot and car fired right back up and powered on home just fine, whereas the week leading up to it it ran worse and worse, hesitated on acceleration and finally would die if you hit the gas. Fuel filter may be in engine compartment. Looks like a canister with an in and an out for fuel. Pump is in gas tank and is way more work and money. Good luck, hope this helps.

sounds to me like either your in need of a tune up or there is a chance your crank position sensor is going out or finally gone.

No start.


You have fuel pressure but the TBI could be clogged. You have spark and the engine runs when given gas. I would look into the TBI. Don't believe it's in the timing either.

Good Luck
