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

Re: 2000 Silverado won't start
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 would start by getting a can of carburetor cleaner and have it 'at the ready' and try the 'start, run stall, start run stall' operation again. Only THIS time, once the engine begins to stall, give it a couple of quick shots of the cleaner into the air filter to see if it stays running on the cleaner.
If it does, then it's still a fuel problem. If it doesn't, then it probably an ignition problem. I would be sort of leaning towards the ignition coil getting weak. The reason I'm saying that is your statement about it running (I'm assuming cold start) for at first, 10 minutes then it stalls. Start it again and it runs for a couple of minutes and stalls again.
This could possibly be from the coil getting warm/hot and not producing the needed spark. After a 10 minute run it simply gets too hot and stalls the engine. After the next restart, the coil is already warm from the engine and so it don't take as long for the coil to get hot and stall the engine again.
well you didnt mention what year or model number you got but some of the better IR compressors have a fuel saver mode that if they don't sense any change in load for like 15 minutes they shut off could be what your seeing , or could also be a safety sensor on the seperator tank not seeing any pressure build up (bad or damaged sensor?)
Spray some either into the air filter. If it starts and runs for a few seconds then it is not getting fuel. If it won't start it may be getting too much fuel. Verify that there are no vacuum leaks and that the bowl of the carb has gas in it.
Gap the plug at .030 What is most likely the main problem is whatever gas sat in the carb. Even with fresh gas there will be some old gas still in the float bowl. You may be able to drain the bowl and be OK but I have a feeling that the carb will need to come off and be disassembled and cleaned properly. You can try spraying carb cleaner (I dislike starting fluid as it is too volatile and carb cleaner does just as well in this instance) into the carb/intake. Remove the air filter, open the choke, and spray the carb cleaner in through that way if possible. You can actually keep an engine running by spraying with short bursts. Even by just spraying once you should be able to get the engine to start. If it does start but then will not stay running without spraying more into the engine then it is a carb problem.
in most of the fuelpumps on deutz engines is a filter.
its behind a metal or a plastic cap of app. 1 inch diameter. its closed by 1 screw in the center.
clean this and be sure the fuel filter(s) are clean.
when you find a kind of sludge in the filters, you better also check and clean the tank if nessesairy.
for more specific tips i need to know what type of machine wre talking about.
hi if an engine has fuel /compression and a spark it will run you have compression ,you have fuel (wet plug ) so no spark before you buy a coil check the air gap if that is ok then replace coil and it will run hope this helps
