Question about Chevrolet C2500

1 Answer

I have a 1989 3/4 ton Chevrolet 2500 Silverado pickup with a 350 automatic that idles OK and dies when you put it in gear. I have changed the Throttle Position Sensor, new plugs, rotor cap, distributor cap, intake gaskets and throttle body gaskets and nothing seems to have worked. It still dies when you put it in gear after you build up a little heat in the motor. It has 12.5 lbs of fuel pressure. Anybody have any suggestions

SOURCE: I have a 1979 Chevrolet

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: remove the front disc rotor

The rotor and hub assembly are held together by the studs,you must first remove the 4-wheel drive hub assembly,then the wheel bearing nuts,and pull the hub and rotor off as a unit. Next lay it(back down) on a piece of wood, using a drift punch drive the studs out. Turn it over ,lay it(face down) on a block of wood, line the new stud splines up with the grooves in the hub and drive them in with the punch and reassemble. A set of dentist style picks will be helpful with the clip in the 4wd hub and a 4 lug 4wd nut wrench will be needed.

SOURCE: abs problem on 2001 4

I have this same problem with my 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. I found a recall on a website that said there were 1,353,718 other trucks with this same problem (no, that's not a typo). Do not ask the people at Chevy to uphold to this recall because I was turned down when I informed them about the problem. Anyway, the explanation for the problem is the wheel speed sensor mounting surface has rust and corrosion (especially in areas who have roads that get salted a lot) on it that moves the actual wheel speed sensor away, creating the thought of an icy condition. If you or a mechanic has the area cleaned, the sensor will go back to its original position, thus fixing the problem.

SOURCE: 1989 GMC 2500 5.7L - engine surges and stalls at idle. Loses power at cruising speed.

Wow you have replaced a lot of stuff. Lets go back to the Fuel pump. When you replaced it did you replace the hose between the pump and the sending unit. These are common for splitting. Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to check what pressure you have? It should be real close to 13 psi and should raise to at least 18 or 19 when you pinch off the return line.

What transmission come out in a 1983 chevy silverado


It should be the 700 r4 transmission with the 350 block,
unless someone changed it out, it could be a turbo 350, if the truck is a 3/4 ton.
if you have 3 gears and over drive it is a 700 r4
only 3 gears turbo 350

Chevy Transmission problems


First thing is to read out, with a rented scanner, whatever codes the computer is storing instead of just replacing parts. You didn't say whether the transmission is automatic or manual--there are different troubleshooting procedures for each type. Is the shift a floor or column type?

MY 1989 chevy silverado pulsates or urges in Idle. It allso does it from zero to 35mph then smooths out. problem is intermitent.


My fathers did the same thing. we soon figured out that the injectors were not making an even mist of fuel they were just dumping the fuel in. we replaced the injectors and the problem was fixed.

Engine pulsates during idle and from second to third gear


Try checking for vaccum leaks, use carb cleaner and spray it around the base of carb, vaccum hoses, edges of intake manifold, take pliers and squeeze the big line to brake power booster & see if it changes, pull the pcv valve out and cover with your finger see if it changes idle.
