    before all this happened, check engine light was on and was told it was the crank positining sensor. And the check light did came off of course but a while later came back on. I'm checking now for any loose wires or vacume line problem

    check engine light was on before battery ordeal, it is the crank positing senser I was told. Truck was running fine after it started ,volt meter was low but it slowly went back up . Just put a new battery & that's when it started.i even place the old 1 back to make sure and still the same problem. I did put back the new battery back again & a friend checked my altinator with a scanner and system is fine. It won't idle @ all & I checked to see if I bumped any thing, there's nothing there for accidental disconnection @ all

To begin with, likely you could have just re-charged the battery using an external charger and been done with it, unless the battery was very old and ready for replacement. OK, so you replaced it....Highly probable that the computer lost it's memory and needs to run through a complete drive cycle in order to regain it's operating parameters. Usually you can do that without having it "flashed" at the dealer by simply taking it for a long (over twenty five mile) drive. Usually that is sufficient for the computer to run through a complete cycle and re-set itself. If not, You may end up at the dealer (sorry) for a re-calibration.
It won't hurt to have a code scan done first, most larger parts outlets do that free...I'd also make sure no fuses are blown in the power distribution center under the hood.

Possibly disturbed vacuum lines during battery installation? Check area for cracked or unhooked vacuum lines. Check for any connectors that may have unplugged. if "check engine" light is on, have car scanned for trouble codes.

    Sorry, some glitch in the system--I did not get your responses to my post. So is the car fixed yet or still having issues? The symptoms you were having are not related to the battery or alternator.

I have a 93 GMC Suburban and I got it from my dad he replaced the fuel lines and put new fuel injectors in it and it ran fine I got it today and it ran great I went to play pool and she I came out my truck...


Were the new fuel lines the same size as the originals? What about bends in the lines? Is the line kinked (closed off) anywhere? Did he use a tubing bender to make all the bends rounded?

New Battery and alternator. The Battery light comes on and flickers when car is running.


It`s not uncommon to have a faulty unit, try voltage test on battery with engine running and all the electric`s you can switch on it should be putting out 13-15 volts at the battery also check belt tension...

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.
