Question about 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Tahoe will turn over but doesn't start. Just replaced the fuel pump about 4-5 months ago. The fuel filter was replaced as well and there's enough gas in it. What could be the problem? I read about not enough voltage getting to the battery and something with a plug being corroded underneath the gas tank but I'm not sure.

Have you tried to start it with starting fluid? Sometimes the aftermarket fuel pumps don't last long. Especially if the filter is not placed right on the bottom of the new pump. You should be able to take off the gas cap and hear the pump run for about 3-5 seconds when you turn the ignition on. If you don't hear the pump running then it is either your pump is bad again or the relay under the hood is not working. You can swap the relay with one next to it to see if it is bad. When you swap the relay turn on the ignition again and see if you hear the fuel pump.

Your fuel pressure can be checked by connecting a fuel test gauge up to fuel test port which will be located on the fuel rail at the back of the engine on drivers side next to the distributor.Your fuel pressure should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

I was driving and went to turn and the car cut off. I coasted it to a safe spot and waited. Tried to start the car up and it turns over but doesn't start. It sounds like it just not getting enough gas....


could also be a crank sensor or a ignition module as this is a older vehicle it will have a ignition module but where to look first i cannot say as never seen this model here in spain ,also check for a wiring connector somewhere on the vehicle under the bonnet

Car will turn over but acts like getting any fuel. Fuel filter just changed about 10 months ago. Has had tune up. Has full tank of gas.


I would have the fuel filter changed again, just in case sediment from the tank is blocking fuel through the filter, and check the fuel pump. They put them in the gas tank now and they do go bad. If you jack up the back end where the gas tank is, pehaps you will have enough gravity feed to present enough fuel to the injectors to start the car. That will tell you if the fuel pump is bad.

Best to do the fuel pressure test, chanses are it needs a fuel pump. Just because you can hear the pump run dosent mean its working or at least putting out enought pressure to make it run.

replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump

If i stop or let idle i feels like its being starved for fuel.. turn off the engine and start it again it runs fine till i stop again. Just replaced the fuel pump a week ago and has been running fine.


Mine did that to me about 4 months ago. I started by changing the fuel filter it ran great for a month. but by doing that it released all the pressure off of the fuel pump which then went out. If you run your vehicle below 1/4 tank it starves the fuel pump. The pump needs that fuel because; The fuel is the lubrication for the pump. Running your tank down consistently over a period of time will short the pump out faster.
