You most likely have a fuel pressure regulator that is not working,and not allowing the fuel,to return the the fuel tank that is not being burned,therefore ,it is being forced into the fuel injectors,or there is a return line that is restricting the flow back to the fuel tank.If this was at all,helpful,please rate,thank you.

I have a 1994 k1500 silverado with 5.7L engine. Its been stalling, so I replaced fuel pump, but It is still stalling out on me, do I need to replace the fuel sending unit also?

the fuel sender unit
is for the gauge to read quantity in tank and is usually incorperated in the pump unit ,when it stalls does it start straight away again ?its more likely to be related to air/fuel , spark ,vacuum at the engine so i'd do a few basic checks there ie air intake pipe not collapsing , air filter ,plugs , vacuum pipes etc are in good condition , also fuel pump relay may be breaking down , as you see there are a few things it could be , the OBD may give you a clue so have that read but pre1996 vehicles this was pretty basic and would need a mechanic with the right reader to do this or log onto a chevvy forum as these places are full of knowledge specific to chevvy, good luck

2000 navigator engine serges at lights and may even stall, cleaned out throttle body,replaced gas filter air cleaner, the plugs are very old and are they under that cover on the side of the engine

There are several parts which control the idle. One part is called an "ISO" motor and it is suppose to regulate the air flow and fuel mix for the engine. This part is probably dirty or worn. Another part is the TPS throttle position sensor which regulates the fuel and spark timing settings.

Even if the "Check Engine" light is not on, there are sometimes codes stored in the onboard computer. You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys and it may tell you which part is bad. The main problem with diagnosing both of these parts is they are variable and not Off/On type switches. Your problems occur when the variable setting is wrong for the moment and not a complete failure.

The plugs are under the air intake manifold. Disassembly is easier because the water system is now separate from the air intake manifold. There was a problem with sparkplugs breaking into 2 pieces on removal. Plugs are rumored to be good for 100,000 miles per the manufacturer.

2000 chevy silverado 5.3, skips a little between 50-55mph, plugs and wires were changed. scanner shows bad knock sensor #2. will changing this correct the problem?

it should but recheck ur wires and plugs first a bad plug or wire can cause a knock ping problem and set off sensor also check the knock sensor connections at rear of engine----- the knock sensors for the 8 cyl are located under the intake manifold so its labor intensive to replace the sensor

How do you change the knock sensor on a 2000 Silverado 1500

First, you have to remove the intake manifold and all associated wires and hoses. Once the intake is off, you will see two rubber plugs in the middle of the valley cover. Pull up on these plugs, so that you expose the connectors, and remove the connectors. You then will be able to unscrew the sensors using a ratchet, socket, and extensions. Replacement is opposite of removal.
