Question about 2002 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

2002 SILVEROADO 5.3. I was drivig down the road, started acting like it was running out of gas than stalled. No whrilling fuel pump sound, I checked all relays and they were ok, New fuel pump did not fix, new flashed computer did not fix. Any suggestions before I have it towed to the stealership. Thank you matthew_vacc Rank: Wiz Rating: 84.48%, 31 votes Just for kicks, unplug your MAF(mass air flow sensor) it is connected to your air filter, there is a plug on top of it, unplug it and try and start it. Is the fuel pump still not working also? Did you check your fuel filter? I dont see how the fuel filter will keep the pump from working when the key is turned to the on position. i disconnected the MAF(mass air flow sensor) and no change. anyother suggestions thanks

The fuel filter wont keep the pump from working but it can restrict the flow of fuel. Just to see where your pump is at smack the tank hard one time. If the pump is malfunctioning it will most likely turn back on.

Gas gage works then goes up and down when going down the road the car will stall a anytime


You need to replace the fuel pump, there is a sensor that is inside the pump called a sending unit, this sending unit measures the amount of fuel in the gas tank, and also since your car is stalling I would definitely say that I would start by replacing the fuel pump!

I stalled a fuel pump on 2002 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl. She stared right upI installed a fuel pump on my 2002 GMC Sonome engine 4 cyl. It started righd not startet up. But, after driven 2 miles, stalled


It is very important to look at the four pin connector that plugs onto fuel tank sending unit the hot wire that runs the pump gets loose and burn the connector making intermittent connection they make a replacement plug for this problem also check the connections on the inside i have those fail once.

with the key on engine off listen to fuel pump,if you can not hear the pump winning ,the pump is bad

if you can hear it,it might be working but create enough pressure

2002 Sunfire with 2.2 ECOTEC Car acted like it ran out of gas. Would crank, run roughly a few seconds, then again acted like it ran out of gas. The next day and the next 3 days it has performed...


have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down


Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Just died wont start back up


It sounds like a fuel pump problem. When you first turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds then shut off. There is a fitting on the fuel rail on the engine that looks like a tire valve, try pushing on that to see how much pressure there is after the pump runs. There should be a good amount of pressure on it. If fuel just dribbles out or there doesn't seem to be much pressure it is definaly a fuel pump. The best thing is to use a fuel pressure guage that will attach at that fitting. There should be between 45 - 60 PSI of fuel pressure when the pump is running. Good luck with your problem.
