Question about Chevrolet 2500

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Chevy ck2500 four wheel drive five speed with a 454. I have replaced plugs and wires and recently fixed all the exaust leaks. The truck has a hard time starting inless its been five minutes since I shut it off. I have to crank it three time about five sec per crank to get it to start. Once started it runs like it has a cam, but then tightens up once all the fuel is burned off. Its eather getting to much gas or not enough gas when starting. It runs fine, but every now and then when I get on the gas it chugs and acts like I got a heavy load. I know my way around engines and I have tried everything I can think off. I was thinking o2 sensor, but my truck doesn't have any lights on.

Hi,Yea that's kinda weird,could be the fuel pump check going bad inside the pump. its supposed to keep fuel from draining out of fuel lines back into tank ( thats why it will crank easyer if it does not sit to long) but after sitting overnight,ect. its letting the fuel drain out of the fuel lines and you have to crank it that many times to get fuel back to engine. just an idea! good luck. yz-maniac.

Reason for failing emmision hc ppm idle on a 1996 chevy suburban 454 truck


First of all, HC (Hydrocarbon) are the residue of petroleum based product combustion. If your HC reading are higher than the OBD2 legal limit (220 ppm), the most common causes could be a leaking fuel injector, abnormal oil consumption, a faulty Oxygen sensor or worn out spark plug / distributor cap / spark plug wire. To be honest, I would need more accurate details such as NOx ppm, CO ppm, CO2 ppm and Oxygen ppm and if there is any repair that have been made on the car recently to give a proper diagnostic.

Warm regards

I would replace the spark plug cables first. Remember to route the plug wires exactly as the factory did and replace any broken wire loom holders.

Code o300 checked about everything you can possiblly do and lite still comes on, any idea's 1999 chevy silverado four wheel drive, 5.3 motor auto trans.

Code p0300 is for mutiple missfires. Have you checked fuel pressure, fuel pressure regulator, plugs, wires, fuel filter... Those would be the main cause of Mutiple missfires.
