    my dads truck a 2002 gmc will not stay running. As soon as we put it in drive it will die. The truck only has 50,000 miles to date. I think that we have a fuel pressure problem.

    my 2002 sierra runs for like a couple of seconds then it sputters to a halt. i am thinking we have fuel pump issues but am not certain when i turn the ignition to on the fuel system doesnt seem to be turning or their is no sounds made to speak of. i have also put in crappy gas and i am thinking the underlying problem is that it was frozen but we put in gas line antifreeze and and no solution i checked all the fuses i can put in and they are all good since we put the fuel line antifreeze in the truck has started and sputtered away for about 45 to 60 seconds but no solution yet does any one have any thing i can try before i put a mechanics kid through college?

    Does the engine die instantly or sputter to death?

    Be more detailed in the way it fails.

I had that same problem with my 2000 suburban. Be driven along just fine, then all of a sudded sputter, sputter, coast, coast. Then it would take off again. This went on for two days, I couldn't take any more. The dealer put in a new fuel pump to the tune of $900.00, and gave it warranty. Problem solved! P.S. GM makes a **** fuel pump, and made it hard to replace, and incredibly expensive. F.U. GM and your crappy fuel pumps. That's from all us!

2000 gmc Sierra starts but stalls


Check the fuel pressure while its running. It sounds like the fuel filter is stopping up. Fuel filter should be changed every 50 thousand miles or so. If the filter is bad it won't be long until the fuel pump has to be replaced (located inside the fuel tank)! It's a lot easier to replace the filter before the pump is damaged!

A 1998 gmc Sierra driving down road at 60 and it just died replaced ignition module and in line fuel filter and now It won't even try's to start


Have you checked the fuel pressure? I think that the fuel pressure is between 55 or 60 pounds. They won't run under 52 pounds.
