I have a 1998 GMC Sonoma sls, with a 4.3 vortec engine. I've put a ton of new parts in. It's hard to start. Then when it does start. It will run for about one minute then dies. Why, and what's the possible...


Fuel. Check fuel pressure. Replace the fuel filter. When you do this and if you still have problems. Then go after the fuel injection. It is under the plenum on top of the engine. This is a pricey part. I would replace the fuel pressure regulator first(still under the plenum) then replace the spider injection, as they call it. But when you get in there and you see the plastic injector lines broken, replace it all.

Fuel pressure specs for gmc sonoma 4.3


2001-2004 gmc sonoma 4.3 [X, W Eng.] fuel system specs: 60-66 psi when you turn the ignition key (fuel pump) on without starting the engine. If fuel pressure drops back down quickly after fuel pump stops working (works for only 5 sec.) then you have a bad fuel pump or leaking injector spider.

I have engine code P0410 for a 1999 GMC Sonoma. It has a 4.3 Vortec engine. Is there an air pump to replace and where is it?


Hello, the air pump is located under the rad. on the lower core support towards the right. and yes you will need to replace the air pump, you will also need to install a updated hose assembly with a new filter. also in allot of cases the air pump fuse will blow when the air pump goes bad. the fuse is located by the battery in the right fender.

Problems starting a 2000 Sonoma 4.3l vortec engine


It could be a bad fuel pump located usually under the rear of the vehicle on either passenger or driver side. Or you need to replace the fuel filter may be plugged up.

Good Luck!

2000 GMC Sonoma will not start after standing serveral hours


Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve, you should have 62 to 65 PSI when the fuel system is primed. (engine not running) With the engine started and running the pressure should drop by 5 PSI, anything less then 62 PSI in your fuel system when trying to start the engine will cause a no start. Note; that try to start a the engine by pouring gas through the throttle body may cause an internal fire in the intake ports and will cause the fuel injectors to melt creating a more expensive problem. As for the fuel pump in the gas tank, it''s held on by and snap ring which you can remove with a simple screw driver. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't for get to replace the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. It's a $12.00 investment that's worth more then it's cost.

Truck won't stay running


Check the fuel pressure at the Shredder Valve, You should have 60PSI to 65PSI upon start and should drop about 5PSI when running. If your fuel pressure is good then it may be a bad injector system. The fuel injector spider system that the vortec has are know to go bad, from the fuel pressure regulator to the puppet fuel valves. Change the fuel filter first if it has not been changed yet and have the fuel pressure check. Good luck and keep me posed. Note: it's been know that spraying ether to start the vortec with the spider injector system has got the puppet valves to catch fire and melt the ends of the puppet valve leading to the replacement to the whole system. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
