Crank sensor has to be bad,or the ignition module.Remove the ignition module and have it checked at the parts store.If it checks bad,replace it,if it checks good replace the cranksensor.The cam sensor,cranksesor,and the control module control injector pulse,and coil spark.I would point more to the ignition module.But I have known the crankshaft sensor to do this also.I hope this was helpful,if so,let us know,thanks,and good luck.

Driving 97 tahoe down road at 50mph and it shut down checked spark plugs check fuel pump you can hear it come on checked coil and distributor and wires any ideas? It will turn over but not start.


If you have a smart phone download an app called ' torque '. I got mine for $4.99. Then buy a bluetooth OBD2 scan tool to plug into your computor.. Elm makes these. Usually around 12 to 15 bucks. Your phone will give you the error codes and take you to a website that will explain them. Fix it with the right parts yourself and save money.

My 97 tahoe the rpm's start going funny engine startes running like its missing popping and ******* and die's it has new fuel pump ,sending unit ,rotor,cap.cam censor ,fuel relay everytime i c


I'm assuming you replaced the fuel filter when you did the pump.
You'll have to try to figure out if you are loosing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
Its possible something is failing inside the distributor among other things.
I'm also assuming you have checked the computer for trouble codes.

I have a 97 tahoe. every morning i start it up it takes a few times before it fires on then its fine,but today i tried to start it up and the same thing happen. i let it set for a few minutes before...


Not the alternator, but a fuel pump or fuel filter could be the problem. BUT it depends on the indications. A fuel starvation problem would act like it was lunging and then dieing out before it died. If it just dies out suddenly, then I would suspect an electrical problem like a coil pack or cap.

I have 97 tahoe with the dtc list as: p0171 and p0174,p1345


A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filter may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.

    Possible solutions include:

    • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
    • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
    • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure.

I have a 97 chevy tahoe LT with the 5.7L. It started missing and putting out a P1345 code, And then just died. Had it pulled to my house, where i have put a new Distributor, cam sensor, crank sensor,...


P01345 IS related to curicut falure on CMP/CKP sersors respectively.This is not a good code to get.And hard do diagnose . If you have replaced the crank and cam p sensors and the distributor shaft and have a good spark and can dump fuel into throttle body and it will run. All that leaves is the fuel injection system not supplying enough fuel or the exhaust system Cat not letting the burned gase's out to much back pressure or your valves are really shoot. What do your spark plugs look like this is the best way of knowing the engine health. Get back to me

97 chev tahoe service engine light is on and it wont start


P0300 is random multiple misfire. If its been more then 3years since the last tune-up, do one. Usually it is caused by debris inside the distributor cap but could also be plugs wires, fuel and air filter.

97 tahoe mis


This starting issue sounds like either the ignition timing is way off, or the cam timing is, the whinning sounds like the timing chain may have been replaced with a non silent type chain (plastic cam gear teeth), maybe the onwer got this wrong when he installed it and the cam timing is off.
