I had that problem with my S-10 pickup. I changed the fuel filter, and the problem went away for awhile. Every once in awhile, the truck would stumble when leaving stoplights. Then one day, maybe a year after the filter change, the fuel pump failed and left me stranded. My advice: check the fuel pressure while you are changing the filter. Stock fuel pressure is AT LEAST 10 PSI. If your fuel pump is putting out any less pressure, change it before it fails. After the fact, I got my original fuel pump working by tapping on the motor. It was only delivering 7 PSI.

Why does my 1994 gmc sierra 1500 hesitate,spit and sputter when i give it alot of gas from a stand still???


It usually does this from lack of fuel and or air. When is the last time you replaced the fuel pump. I did a GMC once that was so bad it would only do about 15 miles an hour. Once the filter was changed it was like a new truck. Fuel filters clog up, it will still give you the pressure , but not the volume.

My 2001 GMC Sierra just made a 600 mile trip. The next morning, the truck wouldn't start (full tank of gas). Replaced the fuel filter, banged on the gas tank. Tried to start the engine again, engine...


When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.
