Is your Check Engine light coming on or Temp gauge reading too hot? This vehicle has a fail-safe feature that when overheating is sensed, the engine will stop firing in 1/2 the cylinders so these become air pumps cooling the engine - this is what causes the loss of power. If you don't pull over and stop the engine to let it cool down, the engine will cut itself off automatically to prevent engine damage.

99 z71 hesitates real bad right after you start it for about 1/2 mile then ok until you shut it off and start it again. doesnt matter if its cold,hot, or already been drivin


what motor..fuel injected or not ? ..any leak under the truck...have to see if its fuel or electronics ...put a clear piece of hose in the gasline too see if you have air bubbles in the fuel......1st try starting it with the fuel cap offf ..see if that does it ..if it cranks for a bit to start you fuel could be flowing back to the tank when not running...but i would guess you gasline has a loose connection pr starting to rot

Engine misfire warm


Hi Brian, I'm glad to help! First, when the engine shuts down you need to know if its loosing FUEL or if its NOT FIRING. This will send you in the right direction of diagnosing the problem, BECAUSE: It could be anything from a Shut-Down-Relay, a Bad Fuel Pump, a Engine Control Module, a Crank or Cam Sensor to various other things. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Brian.

Truck engine shuts down while driving. Sometimes it just hesitates and comes back sometimes it dies.


guessing fuel pump you can buy a fuel pressure tester hook it up to the shrader valve on the rail and tape the pressure tester to your windshield and have someone in your passenger seat and monitor the pressure and if it drops off then dies you know the problem....

NO Start the truck is not getting spark the coil is good but i'm not getting any power to the coil and I need to know if i'm testing it right i'm thinking it is the ignition


THE POWER TO THE IGNITION COIL COMES FROM THE AUTO SHUT DOWN RELAY..THE AUTO SHUT DOWN RELAY IS GROUNDED BY THE POWERTRAIN CONTROLLER WHEN IT SEES CAM AND CRANK SIGNALS..WHEN CRANKING..HOLD YOUR TEST LIGHT ON DG/OR WIRE AT COIL AND HAVE SOMEONE JUST TURN KEY ON..YOU SHOULD GET POWER FOR 2-3 SECONDS..IF IT DOES,THE CIRCUIT TO THE COIL IS OK..CHECK ALL FUSES..FUSE 9 IN JUNCTION BLOCK INSIDE TRUCK,FUSE 3 IN UNDERHOOD FUSE/RELAY CENTER..CHECK FOR ANY FAULT CODES IN PCM..YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A FAULTY CAM OR CRANK SENSOR..CAN BE MONITORED WHILE CRANKING ENGINE WITH A SCAN TOOL HOOKED UP..LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND
