My 1988 chevy silverado turns over to long before starting, it starts every time but long of turn over time,i've changed filters, injectors, wires, plugs


I have seen this kind of problem once. it cost 1800$ to ESSO
you have to know that the flash point of fuel is different
empty your fuel tank like usually and fill her up with new fuel at another gas station
flash point is the temperature where the fuel will ignite without spark. the flash point in summer is low and in autumn or winter is high

2001 chev silverado. Filled up with gas started


My Dad had a 1999 Silverado that did the same thing, it's a bad design. You wont run out but keep track of your miles, Then you know how far you can go.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. After I fill up the gas tank and start the truck the engine stalls unless I give it gas. After I drive the truck down the road it runs and starts fine.


You have sediment in your tank that gets losened and blocks your fuel line after you gas up. drain tank and clean and change both fuel filters and that should fix your problem

2001 chevy silverado 4.8 gas gauge not working properly


Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

2001 Chevy Venture will not start. Turns over and tries to start


Spray "starting fluid" (AutoZone $4) into air intake. If it "starts better" then it is fuel-related. The gas in your tank may be contaminated. Whatever floated to the top is what is left in your tank. Add a gallon of new fuel, burn what you can and use a "complete fuel system cleaner" (AutoZone $9) when you fill-up.

My gas gauge fluctuates


The fuel pump and sending unit are one piece and are located inside the fuel tank. They are notorious for trouble and when one goes out, the other follows.

Low fuel rail pressure


Check your " FUEL FILTER " for clogging. Work backwards toward the fuel supply tank, Hope this helps.

Fuel sensor gauge


you will need to replace the fuel level sensor.(sending unit) it is in the tank and is hooked to the fuel pump. you can buy seperatly from pump. you may finf it easier to remove the bed if you have some help. it is six or eight bolts and harness unplugs then you can get right to it.
