Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

2003 chevy runs for about 30 seconds before dying sounds like it is starving of fuel. I turn key over and you can hear the fuel pump kick on for about 10 seconds then shut off. I took fuel filter off and turned the key on to see if fuel pump was working but it didnt seem like it was pressurized fuel coming out of the lines.I checked all the fuses so my next guess is the filter and the pump. what do you think.

2002 chevy avalanche died at a stop light and now wont start back up. it just cranks.


Those are known for having the fuel pump go out. Take the gas cap off, open the little steel door with a screwdriver and have someone turn the key forward, not cranking it over, just turn it until all the dash lights come on and see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on for about 2 seconds. You definitely need 2 people to do this. If you can hear the fuel pump then its probally not getting spark.

How can you tell if the fuel pump is bad


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. The easiest way to tell if it is kicking on is my listening for the sound of the pump. When you first turn the key, you should hear a humming sound for a second or two. This is your fuel pump kicking on. If you don't hear it, it is not kicking on. If so, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, or reset button if you have one. It is possible that the pump works but is just not getting power. You would have to test it from the pump with a voltage meter to know for sure. If you don't hear it kicking on though, it may be bad. If you have cranked it a lot, it might not turn on because the pump is already primed, so let it rest before you try it again.

Chevy fuel problem?


you can unplug the fuel pump relay from the truck. using a small piece of wire jumper from terminals 30 to 87 (they sort of make a "T"). Just before you do this have a friend remove the gas cap and listen to see if the fuel pump is running (it should kick on for 2 seconds when the key is turned on). sometimes i put a transmission funnel into the filler neck to act like a megaphone to amplify the sound of the fuel pump running. If the fuel pump runs when you do this you either have a control circuit problem or a bad relay.

1997 chevy S10 died


can you hear the pump in tank running? it should come on for a few seconds when you cut key on. sometimes you can beat on tank with your hand while someone cycles key on and get the pump to kick in. this is a temp fix though if you need a pump i find it easier to remove the bed to gain access to tank.
