Check for a dirty fuel filter, or it's a fuel pump relay/pump. If it has never had a fuel pump changed on it, it will say AC DELCO on the filter. The fuel filter is located under drivers side door along the frame. Fairly easy to change, and if this doesn't fix the problem, then it is the fuel pump relay/fuel pump. *Hint... it is easier to remove the bed of the truck than to drop the tank out. From experience it is much faster and easier to access.

Let me know,

Chip

Fix a 2000 sl2 saturn 1.9 engine, that starts & then dies?


you can start by checking fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the fuel line under the throttle body. there should be around 35 psi of pressure.

if you do not have a pressure gauge try keeping the vehicle running by spraying short bursts of car spray into the throttle body. if the car will run on carb spray than you know you have a fuel issue and checking pressure would be a good start.

CARB SPRAY IS FLAMMABLE, PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL TO DO THIS OUTSIDE AND HAVE SOME SORT OF MEANS TO PUT OUT A FIRE READY IF NEEDED!!

I have a 93 gmc suburban it starts then dies if I put my foot on the gas to keep it running smoke comes out the muffler and when I take my foot off the gas it dies


Sounds like too much fuel, could be a leaking injector, faulty pressure regulator, or blockage of air intake. Did you replace the injectors and pressure regulator when you worked on the throttle body ? Can you see normal fuel spray on both injectors when the engine is running ?

Changed fuel filter in 2001 Chevy SIlverado 4.3L v6, pump is working but no fuel to throttle body. Will start and run if sprayed with Carb cleaner, but stop after spray stops.


It is possible for pump to run but not put out pressure. Sounds like you need a pump. There is a valve on the fuel rail where you can test fuel pressure. Its just like a tire valve. Just push in on the center pin to see if you get a spray of fuel. It requires around 55 pounds to run. You will need to connect a gauge to the valve to check for proper pressure.

1993 chevrolet silverado 1500 will not start has new filter and pump can spray fuel in to it will start then dies when it runs out of the fuel sprayed it it


It sounds like your injectors are not firing which could be a crank signal problem or wiring,distributor pickup coil problem or a computer problem.One wire to your injector should be pink this is the power wire it should have around 11.5-12 volts with the key on. The other wire is ground that the computer uses to fire the injector which you can check with a good test light hooked to voltage. and work back from that point if you have neither at the injector.

SHUTS OFF WHILE IDLE OR TURNING


ck to see if your throttle body is dirty. Buy a can of berrymans b12 carb cleaner (spray) and grab a friend. Take off air intake and expose throttle body. Have your friend start the engine and throttle up to 2000/3000 rpm and spray cleaner all arround throttle body while running. It will run like **** while you empty 1/2 to 3/4 of the spray into throttle body. Turn off and disconnect battery for at least 5 min to reset computer. reconnect and presto good rpm's no more slow idle and dying.

2002 silverado 4.8L cranks for a few seconds before starting


One of the biggest problems I see that causes this is coking in the throttle body throat.It is easy to fix. Remove the air intake tube from the body, get you some B-12 spray cleaner from your local parts house and a shop rag. Wet the rag good, push the throttle open and wipe out all the black coking you see. You can spray some of the cleaner into the throttle body but if you use too much you could foul the plugs or hydro-lock the engine so again, if you spray it into the body, don't use too much.

2001 chev 4x4 fuel pump issues


I would try some starting fluid in the throttle body. If is runs with you spraying starting fluid, then you know its a fuel problem. If it turns out to be a fuel problem its probably the pump. You would need to then check for power at the pump.

I installed new fuel pump and truck will idel for about 15 second


check to see if the injectors are working, what engine do you have? and what kind of fuel pressure are you getting? check fuses for the injector circuit, if your fuel pump is working and you know your spark is good, the next thing to check would be the injector system

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.
