I would check the fuel filter, and the fuel pressure for proper pressure.

Hi have a 1998 chevy convertion van 163 miles.runs very good...lately the speedometer gets crazy after 40 mph and when get to 100mph try to shot off.... Any sugestions?


At 100 mph the PCM may be shutting it down as a rev or speed safety limiter. Is it jumping to 100 or are you actually running 100 when it tries to shut down ?

What could cause it to slow down from 60 mph to 40 mph then cut off.


sounds like loss of compression and/or alternator not charging , i'd get these two things checked as a starting point , if vehicle is post 1996 then have the OBD codes read as well

My van shut dawn when start why do that?


I`m having the same problem with mine 4.3 vortec CMFI . I have narrowed it down to three things (i believe). #1 Fuel pressure regulator. #2 Power Train Control Module #3 Deep inside the injector ?-- Have to start taking engine apart from the top. Answer #1 40 dollars Answer #2 approx. 150 - 450 These two are parts only. Answer #3 How deep are your pockets? Remember if you Buy a PCM and connect it and it is not your problem you can not take it back.
