Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD
I suspect there may be an issue with my fuel pump/filter, but not sure.
- saw once an indicator on the computer saying "tighten gas cap", which was already tight and securly on.
- hear a vibration noise occasionaly between cab and box - can't tell if it is the gas tank
- engine seems to pause when accelerating slowly from a stop
I believe that the pump and filter are inside the gas tank - is that correct?

SOURCE: no fuel
Be sure you have checked the impact safety switch. Your owner's manuual should tell you where it is if it has one. This switch kills the power to the fuel pump after impact. It has a push button reset. Check for voltage at fuel pump to rule out having to change the pump again.

Well if theres power going to the relay but not out, then you need a new relay. If theres power in and out of the relay, you might need a new fuel pump. The electric fuel pumps inside the tank are actually lubricated by the fuel as it pumps it, and if it runs dry long enough, it can burn out the pump

you don't they are surface mounted l.e.d on the circuit board. so with out total disassemble and solder skills and replacement parts this will be a very hard task.

The best way to help find the problem, is to have a fuel pressure test done on it, that will tell if the fuel pump is weak, or the fuel pressure regulator is malfunctioning. If the pressure is low, the fuel pump is weak,
if it is high, the fuel regulator is at fault.
