Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2 Answers

I have a 2000 chev K3500 dully 6.5 motor. It runs good when it is cold but shuts off sometimes when it gets warm 180 degrees. I had it put on the mechine and 2 codes came up, the Turbo senser and the Fuel silinode. I have replaced both parts and the fuel pump and fliter. It's running better but still want to cut off or comes close to cutting off.

First guess would be that your truck needs an oil change. It sounds like there is a drop in oil pressure, could be an internal leak somewhere. Or maybe a drop in fuel pressure. Could be a fault oil pressure sensor, tests need to be run.

Hi,

Did you replace crankshaft sensor by any chance. It should not happen once you replaced the sensor for sure.

Thanks

I have 99 chev pu 4.3 just put new head gaskets on .now I can not get the timing cam retard off -22.whats wrong.everything was set at top dead center.dist lines up on mark 6 inside it. Help


the book shows chev 4.3 L is a v6 chain driven and the valve timing is correct when the two dots line up with each other
if it is the ignition timing that you are talking about you are probably 180 degrees out in the distributor setting
no 1 piston firing lines the rotor button up at no one HT lead and not no 6
all engines regardless are timed of no piston tdc and chev engines are around the 12 degrees btdc for operation

1994 Buick Lesabre calls for a 160 or 180 degree thermostat


that is the opening temperature for the thermostat
it opens at 160 degrees which is good for hot weather operation or another with 180 degrees which is good for cold weather operations
The differences is 160 opens sooner to start coolant circulation to keep operating temperature low where the 180 keeps shut and allows the operating temperature to rise up as soon as it open the cold air will quickly cool the coolant.

I have a 95 chevy K3500 7.4L TBI, when cold it misses a little but as son as it warms up it runs fine. Plugs & plu wires only have about a year on them


if it only does this cold until it warms up it sounds like carbon build up on the back of the valves. this causes fuel to be absorbed when cold before the fuel enters the combustion chamber causing a lean condition. have a top end fuel service done this will clean the carbon off the valves. depending on how bad the carbon build up is you might have to do this a couple of times.

2001 Taurus won't start when warm. Try to start it, it will try to run, roughly, then dies. Then will only turn over for awhile. After it sits for 20 minutes or so, it starts like a new one and keeps...


Sometimes a motor is more sensitive to warm conditions. When the water temperature sensor does not cool off it keeps the engine in a warm run mode which is very lean. This is how lower emissions and better fuel economy are made.

The "cold start sequence" makes a richer fuel mix for starting and running. I have not seen a dividing point where this switches from one mode to the other. IF it is say 180 water temperature degrees and your car stays above 180 degrees turned off after running, then the fuel mix will be very lean until the engine coolant loses heat.

About all you can do is put in a new thermostat of proper temperature or a lower temperature thermostat. You could flush the radiator and back flush the block so that heat loss is more efficient. You could put in a new water temperature sensor. You want to get rid of calcium-fication of the internal surface areas so the components are more like factory new.

Temperature rises rapidly, but radiator is cool to touch


Classic sign of a failed thermostat; it is not opening as it should when reaching its design point of 160-180 degrees F so very little is passing through a tiny hole to the radiator, leaving it cold to the touch. If you remember the good ol' days, the temperature gauge would rise to a perdictable point and pretty much stay there regardless of ambient temps. They can fail open too; then the engine never completely warms up and the gauge then wanders and your gas mileage tanks.  
Just replaced one that didn't play fair since its failure was semi-random; sometimes it worked, sometimes not.   Your thermostat is being kind; it's stuck and this condition is crystal clear.
