Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban
1999 GMC Suburban Will turn over "trying to start" but will never actually start. Replaced fuel filter and fuel pump seems to be ok. I turn the key, it tries, it fails. After anywhere from 3 to 10 times later it actually starts. If I try to start it shortly after it has been running, it starts fine. Any ideas? I was told it may be the choke.....
It sounds like the choke is the most likely culprit. Take the air cleaner off the throttle body/Carburater. Have someone cover most of the throttle body/Carburater intake, if you don't have help use a piece of heavy cardboard. If it starts up right away it's the choke. Note: if you use cardboard don't rev the engine you may **** the cardboard into the engine.
I'm afraid with all the different types of choke controls I can't tell you how to fix your choke with out actually seeing it.
