Pumping the petal will not flood engine. Can u smell gas while trying to turn it over? can u pull a spark plug and smell fuel on it. You also do need to make sure you are getting fuel to the fuel rail first can u hear the pump come on when you turn key in the on position second with key on engine off see if fuel comes out of the port at the fuel rail careful contents under pressure.

Duramax will not start plugged in ran then died wont start again. any ideas?


I take it that your engine is a diesel (glo-plugs) in which case the pumping of the accelerator is just good exercise for your leg but does nothing for the engine as it does not have an accelerator pump. faulty glo plugs will only make for hard starting on cold mornings so that will be out also. So the next ting that will give some idea as to the problem will be to have the fault codes read and that will show up the area and sensors that are causing your faults.

On GM cars this type of problem was a sticking torque converter. The car acted like you had not engaged the clutch and the engine just died. You could restart it and drive on as long as it did not go into lockup.
Does it feel like that, or more like the idle air control valve is not raising the idle speed ?

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....


Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

Try checking the fuel filter or the fuel pump. Sometimes if you run the fuel until it is almost empty, it pulls debri off the bottom of the fuel tank and it gets stuck in the fuel filter. It them starves your engine for fuel. Sometimes if you bang on the fuel pump, it will loosen some of this debri, and the vehicle may start, or you may just need to replace the whole fuel pump.
