SOURCE: runs good til it gets hot, then backfires and sputters

Have the catalitic converter check sounds like it may be clogged. This will cause it to choke off exhaust when it gets hot

SOURCE: Backfiring sputtering, won't start

Could be lots of things. Could be plugs or wires or a combination of both are going bad. Probably time to change all of them any way.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 chevy tahoe that will only start

Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.

=========

You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.


Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.

I will follow up.

If the only problem is idle and it runs grat above ide then the most likely component is the Idle Air Control valve. This is providing you have no codes stored indicating something else.

Check the crank position sensor. Also it could be as simple as a bad coil or coil wire. It definitely sounds electrical if you hear fuel pump priming. Also check distributor cap and rotor. Hope this helps

Did you replace distributor cap and rotor? These are common on these engines. If you pull the cap, look at the contacts on the cap. You will probably find a lot of build up on them.

Engine dies numerous times a day.


Have you thought about it possibly being the engine that has something wrong with it? Have you checked the cylinders?
