1 Answer

I have a chevy 3500 express. When it rains the truck wont start. I removed the electrical connection on top the tank and it had moisture on it, i removed the moisture and the truck started. I sealed the connection with rubber sealant. The next day the truck would not start again. I replaced the fuel filter the day before i fount the moisture. I checked the spart at the plugs and i'm getting spark.. I have 230 thousand miles on the truck when i bought it used. Do you think i need a new fuel pump or a new fuel regulator? Please help me

Test the fuel pressure to check what you need
no point in replacing what ain't broke until you know for sure what is broke

SOURCE: 1997 chevy silverado 3500 with

We found the problem by taking the truck to the dealership, after spending $550.00 on parts and having everything we could remove tested or we purchased them new and replaced them. We spent two weeks on it and took it to Chevrolet but it took them three days after all we had done, the problem turned out to be the gear on the distributor, sure we replaced every part in it but because we could not get the distributor out with the intake on it we had not even considered the gear, thanks for your assistance and maybe we'll try you again next time....Thanks again.

SOURCE: Where is the location of the fuel pressure

it can be in one of 3 places on the pump in the filter or on the fuel injector rail if the filter has 3 lines on it then it is in the filter if it is on the fuel injector rail it is inside the intake but it is more than likely on the pump

Running light problem on chevy express 3500 box van


Vehicle electric trouble shooting is the worst. Some of the problems you described the bulbs may have multiple filiments with only some burned out. It may sound silly but change the bulbs. Get a couple of new bulbs and try them in the different spots. Time, road vibrations and spring pressure causes the contacts on the bulbs to wear until they get a poor connection then you get a little arcing that build up a residue and a bulb that test good doesn't work.
Your on the right track with the ground wire. Try a test lamp with a good gound connection and test the different sockets, if your test light works but your bulb doesn't you have a ground fault. If neither work check the switch and fuse before you start tracing the wiring. These are just general trouble shooting tips It's very hard to trouble shoot electrical problems sight unseen.

How to rmove fuel from fuel tank of 2000 chevy express van?


Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.
