Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

I have a '96 Suburban. Two months ago i started having trouble stating it. It turns over fine, but hesitates starting. When it does start, it seem to be flooding for a few seconds. Then it runs fine. On two occasions, i had to use ether to start it. I have relpaced the fuel pump, fuel pump relay, plugs and wires, distributor cap and button. I have also had two chevy mechs look at it. I cannot figure out what the problem is.

    my 96 suburban will eventually start, but starts faster and runs like a champ after using ether. I starts just fine if I restart it within a few hours, but after it sits overnight I'm back to ether starts again. Has new fuel pump, pump regulator, intake gasket set, water pump, plugs, wires, cap & rotor, alternator & optima red top battery and still the same now for over a year.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

This is gonna sound totally wrong and silly BUT i had the same year surburban and trust me - Replace your battery with a new one with at least 750 COLD CRANKING AMPS - They are about 75 bucks from autozone - but it WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM.
