Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
When I 1st start truck and put in drive it will cut off after traveling maybe 20 yards. It always cranks back up. I cannot figure out why?
Weather does not seem to matter. It does has done this off and on for the last 6 months.
This last weekend while driving down interstate (after about 2 hours) the truck starting cutting off and back on again. It did this quite a number of times. When traveling at speed (65-75) it would start itself, when I got off teh interstate and was going below 30 I would have to put in nuetral and restart myself. Once again it always restarted. I did add about 2 quarts of water to the truck camped for 3 days and it drove the 3 hour trip home with no problems.
Then I went to hardware store and it was back to cutting off when
I took off, but of course it started back up and drove home
This is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.
