Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

I have a 1989 chevy silverado 4x4 with a 350, it ran great for ever until now. It starts up, runs rough for a few seconds then just quits, it will do this 10 times in a row then start just fine and run like a champ! I've checked my air intake, my cat and i've got good gas, the fuel pump is fairly new and my carb looks clean enough. Please help, I love this truck but don't have tons of money to put into it. Thanks......C.Pinto

Did the problem start when the fuel pump was replaced? It could be some kind of obstruction in the fuel line or a fuel filter acting up - needing replaced, or the filter on the fuel pump somehow didn't get installed correctly. Spend $20 and get a Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone to show you step by step instructions with pictures how to troubleshoot just about anything for your make and model.

The air pump will only run for about thirty seconds on start up to run a self test, it will the run under normal conditions whenever the computer deems nessicary, if you have an airpump related code you most likely have an or vaccine leak somewhere

2000 silverado 4.3 V6. Replaced feul pump and niw it starts but it takes 3-4 cranks in the morn to start it and then it runs very rough untill it has ran for 1/2 to 1 hr. Also have replace fuel filter...


The rough running should have caused the check engine light to come on. It would be a good idea to goa ahead and scan the engine for trouble codes. The rough running could be a number of things. The codes would help us pinpoint the correct part ot replace, rather than start replacing parts until we get lucky and hit the right one. That could be very expensive.

Try taking the exhaust pipe loose at the manifold. I had a Chevy Suburban that acted the same way, it turned out to plugged catyletic converter. The converter wasn't letting the exhaust out, the truck had no power, it would stall and then start right up and great for about five seconds the run rough and quit. Once I disconnected the exhaust it started right up and ran great. You could also try taking the O2 sensors out (for test purposes) ahead of the converter that will give the exhaust a place to go

1999 chevy silverado won't start.


You need to test the fuel pressure with a special gauge, the pressure should be greater then 35PSI. The Vortec set up has more to it but what you seem to be discribing is a faulty fuel pump. Im assuming that the fuel filter was changed too. But you need to have a special tool that will allow you to isolate the fuel flow from the tank to the engine. popular reasons for fuel system failiers are filter, pump, fuel pressure reg. valve(located underneath the plenum) and not common but maybe fuel pump relay.

1991 lesabre wont start after shutting down. If it sits a few hours starts up great again. changed plugs, plug wires, coil pack, and Ignition control module but still same problem. ran a little rough but...


Best to do a fuel pressure test, pump might be weak and dosent show up until it gets gets warm. Best to do the test after it quits again when pump is at its hottest. If you havent done it yet chg. fuel filter too.
