I had a 99' with a 5.3 motor and it would die on me once in awhile, and it took awhile for it to start some times. It was the fuel pressure regulator, i learned later that this motor had alot of problems with this regulator. Changing it fixed it for aboout 50 bucks and 10 minuits or work

I have had to change my distributor cap on a regular basis every 10 to 14 months ever since I bought my silverado in 2000. No one has been able to explain why but out of no where the truck will not start turns over but refuses to start every thing else checks out but it still won't start, until I replace the distributor

Hope this works for you.

Hi, first check to see is there fuel getting to the engines fuel pump,
Then if fuel is being pumped it must be the ignition system.
Is your engine Gas or diesel?
Also check your knock sensor connection ( also called map sensor ) this is usually fitted around the flywheel area somewhere.
If this is disconnected the engine will start then cut out shortly.

I changed the fuel filter in my 2004 silverado and now my truck won't start


It would be nice if you were to mention WHICH ENGINE your Silverado is equipped with...Knowing WHICH Silverado MODEL you have would also be nice...1500, 2500, 2500HD, 3500. etc.
If it is a gas engine, all you should have to do is to cycle the ignition key ON for about 5 seconds, then turn the ignition switch OFF and wait about 30 seconds, then repeat this about 3 times. This will allow the fuel pump prime to get the air out of the fuel lines. It should start after this is done.

If your truck is equipped with a diesel engine, the process is much different, let me know if this is the case, and I will post the fuel filter replacement instructions for the diesel.

Turn over but well not stay running backfires though air intake


When is the last time you replaced your fuel filter? Check your fuel filter. If it's plugged you may have taken out the fuel pump. This happened to me. (2000 Chevy Silverado 1500)
