Hello, I have a 99 silverado z71, I was driving along and all of the sudden it lost power and started to spit and sputter and ended up on the side of the road,sitting there it continued to idle roughly, spitting and sputtering and finally died. It start back up but continued to do the same, made it back home still running like ****, it sit for a few days and then I tried it again and the same, got it up the hill to my shop and that's where it sits now and will not start, I changed the fuel filter and still no start, it sat for a few more days and tried it again last nite and it started but still spit and sputter and then dies, I hear fuel pump come on when I turn key to ON, have checked the fuses and relay, could it be bad fuel or what???

Have the shop check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Maybe the pump impeller has failed. If fuel pressure is good, your timing chain/belt may have slipped.

Why does it continue to spit and sputter going uphill?


Spit and sputter can happen because of not enough fuel or air. last thing to check for fuel is the fuel pressure regulator. On the air side would be the the air filter(filthy) or catalytic converters(clogged). on the mechanical side, Could be bad rings, burnt valves. Compression test would find this.
