Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
My truck wont start, it will only start for a bit with starter fluid in the engine, we cannot find the problem. One day driving it starting stalling i would floor the gas pedal and it would only go about 5 to 10 mph, black smoke coming out the muffler. Got it home now it wont start
Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.
