Question about 1995-1997 Chevy 1500 Truck Ignition Starter Alarm Switch

2 Answers

1995 tahoe 1995 Chevy Tahoe 140k 5.7 liter 4x4 auto. The truck lopes on idle then cuts out you can floor it and it is like it cleans out. Will be fine for a bit then starts cutting out again. Put new fuel pump, fuel filter, throttle position sensor, egr valve, plugs,cap,rotor,wires, set timing, rebuilt throttle body with new injectors and rebuilt regulator. Put new catalytic converter on it too. New Radiator cap, new gas cap. Really getting frustrated. No check engine light on either.

Does black smoke come out of the exhaust pipe when you floor it? Is so, it is running rich. Make sure fuel pressure is with in limits. A bad regulator may permit too much pressure. Also check the MAP sensor. Make sure it is getting vacuum.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy tahoe performance

try putting some of that fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank next time you fill up...and if you really want better mileage i have a 97 tahoe also and i put an airade cold air intake on it and its like night and day difference with mileage as long as you dont pound the petal...if you do decide to go fast it gives you like 10hp gain too and it'll take off a lot faster and sound sportier.

SOURCE: 97 Chevy Truck starts and idles rough and then shuts down

Sounds like you're loading up with fuel. I'd check the fuel pressure regulator. Some engines are set up with a regulator inside the intake plenum, which requires plenum removal.

My 2001 tahoe dies while idling in park. After waiting over night it started and ran fine until allowed to idle in park for a short time. This a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3 liter engine and 160,000 miles.

If the only problem is idle and it runs grat above ide then the most likely component is the Idle Air Control valve. This is providing you have no codes stored indicating something else.
