CHECK FUEL PRESSURE AT THE REGULATER
IT SHOULD READ ABOUT 45 PSI TO 47 PSI NO MORE AND NO LESS.
IF IT IS LOWER THEN IT IS YOUR FUEL PUMP GOING OUT.

1999 Chevy blazer. Changed fuel pump, wont stay running.engine revs up and down, if I try to push in the gas pedal to see if it will clear up, it bogsdown and dies. Could this be the fuel pressure...


Yes sounds like a regulator issue. On the 99 blazer the regulator is under the plastic intake plenum and is a part of the fuel injection spider. I would also check for vacuum leaks and your idle air solenoid.

Its a 1999 chevy tahoe. Changed fuel pump twice.


Could be the pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Pull the vacuum line off the regulator and check it for fuel contamination. There should not be gas in the line. If there is fuel in that line the regulator is bad and needs replaced.

The regulator located inside the plastic intake plenum? There is no hose. They just work off the vacuum present inside there.

Put a pressure gauge on the fuel test port to find out if you have low fuel pressure. If you haven't checked the pressure regulator, that could be the problem.
If that doesn't help, connect to a code scanner to see if the computer has detected any faults.
Also, run a compression test; see about the general health of the engine.

I just bought a 1999 Chevy Silverado last November. I recently changed the fuel pump, because I thought I didn't have enough pressure. When I start the engine, it runs for a few seconds and it shuts off....


It sounds like its possibly a bad fuel pressure regulator. Most parts stores will rent you a code reader, scan the computer for trouble codes. Come back here with any codes retrieved from the computer and we will help you figure this out. This could be a cheap fix, so I don't recommend randomly replacing things, that will get very expensive.

Will it run for a short time if you squirt some fuel into the throttle body? If so, then concentrate on the fuel delivery system. Fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail should be at least 40 PSI. If not, look at the fuel pump, the pressure regulator, and the fuel filter.

Difficult starting in warm weather


Check the vacuum hose attached to the fuel pressure regulator under the hood next to your intake pull it off and see if any fuel is present, if there is replace regulator.you may have to tap hose with your finger to get any fuel out or start vehicle run until hot then shut off and recheck if no fuel present in vacuum line let me know and we can try something else.

THE FUEL PUMP IS BAD.

if your losing fuel pressure after the pump runs the drain back valve in the pump has failed.

and i doubt that you are seeing enough fuel pressure to run a vortec engine.

low fuel pressure equals a non running vortec

replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump
