Sounds like you may have a inaccurate fuel sending card in the tank where the gauge shows 1/4 tank but may be closer to empty. And when the tank is that low the pump screen could be sucking air but also accumalating debris that was floating in tank and partially blocking your fuel pump pickup screen.

2005 Silverado won't start


Assuming this is a crank no start, open the gas cap, put your ear to the fuel fill as close as possible. Have an assistant turn the key on, you should hear the pump turn on for approximately 2 seconds. If it does not, have the assistant crank the engine while you hit the bottom of the fuel tank with a hard rubber mallet. Sometimes this will jar the pump enough for it to run.

I own a 04 silverado 5.3L ext cab 4wd. Engine lite on, tighten gas cap displays (3rd new gas cap) and just started to have a problem adding gas. the pump shuts off every few seconds and sometimes gas...


The problem pump gas is a common problem with the gas pump it self try turning the handle slightly to either side this may allow gas to flow better. The second problem the service engine soon light comes on for many different reasons not just the gas cap. auto zone usually will scan your computer for free and tell you what the diagnostic trouble codes are. find out and let me know and we can go from there. Good luck.

NEED DIAGRAM OF 2003 CHEVY SILVERADO TRUCK EXT CAB, 4.3 LITRE V6 ENGINE. SO WE CAN CHANGE OUT FUEL PUMP


fuel pump is on the engine or either in the gastank follow the fuel line chevys are the easiest auto to work on a new i think yours is in your tank remove both straps and remove hose to filler neck. the fuel **** is in the center of th tank removed by a lock washer system holding the pump in also be careful that you follow the fuel lines though and that you remove bolts that hold the fuel ine to the frame and up to the engine or fuel filter then engine an up to the carb that way you can lower tank without bending fuel line any way however you took it off put it back if a human put this thing together then a human can fix it

Faulty gas gauge


Have a 2001 chev and it does the same thing. It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender, not the fuel pump. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank. If you want more information please get back to me.
