Question about Chevrolet 3500

1 Answer

I have a 97 chevrolet pickup with the 454 engine. It has 65,000 original miles. I noticed the other day that after I drive somewhere then shut the engine off and then try to restart the engine it acts like it's flooded. The local automotive shop replaced the fuel pressure regulator and didn't seem to make a difference($377). Any idea what it might be and is there some way to test the old regulator that they said was bad?

Replace the engine coolant temp sensor. When you shut the car off, the sensor tells the computer that the car is dead cold again. It's like having the choke on, on a carbureted car.

if it shuts off while driving and will not start back up for at least 10 minutes, then it may be the crank sensor doing this. is check engine light on! if so get it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner, auto-zone will scan for free. if light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all. good-day ! crank sensor timing will be out of sync. it controls timing and sends info to pcm.

My 97 tahoe only running on 6 cylinders


If compression test is good is either no spark, bad coil or wire, or no fuel, bad fuel injector. Need to clarify which is not functioning properly.
