This could be a couple of different things. I will start with the most likely and go to the least likely. The most likely is the fuel filter, if not that then check the fuel pressure to the throttle body. Could be the fuel pressure regulator. If you don't have enough fuel pressure and the regulator is ok, then the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay could be the problem.

I was driving my chevy 1500 and it died and does not seem to be getting any gas


if truck was made after 1988 its sure to have some sort of PCU module and the later types even will tell you exactly why it wont run , but you'll need to hook up a code reader to see what the problem is , but a owner can diagnose some things themslefs , just by using there good hearing .


start by turning key to run not start listen !! did you hear fuel pump prime in tank ?? then shut off this is telling you fuel pump ckt is ok may take several times to hear it


crank engine over listen to fuel injectors click on engine top (takes two people) injectors actually click as they are opened for fuel ?? a old paper towel roll tube held to your ear helps to hear

Chevy tahoe 1999 now it starts but runs for a few seconds then i wait it starts and run for a few seconds again


Seem's like your fuel pump isn't able to keep the good fuel pressure.

Might be a good idea to check your fuel rail pressure. I assume that it drops before your engine dies!!!

If fuel pressure is ok in your rail, try cleaning the fuel rail and injectors. Sometimes dirt can go from a trashed fuel filter an clog yor rail or the injectors.

1988 chevy celebrity No fuel to the carberator.


without starting the engine position the key to the on position.
you can hear the fuel pump operationing for 4 to 6 seconds upon having the key on.
if not heard running check the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay, and the engines oil pressure switch.
they all work the pump you see
the engine oil pressure switch runs the pump untill the engine reaches normal pressure
once the pressure is reached to the normal range the computer shuts that circuit off and turns the fuel pump relay on

try using a different key to see if its a key/code issue.if it fires then dies this is normally the first thing to look at.
to check fuel from pump try undoing the nut on top of one of the injectors, crank engine fuel drips out ...no problem...

My 1988 chevy 2500 has been so reliable until it stated to stall.


Could be. But more then likely it's the gas. The gas you get these days from the pumps will gunk up after around 30-40 days. I'ld change the fuel filter see if that works. If not you might have to take the tank out to clean off the pickup sock. It's a small filter type on the end of the fuel pump. Of course, you should do a pressure test to see first.
