1998 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Problems

Check Engine Light and Misfire Due to Stuck Fuel Injectors

One or more fuel injectors may become stuck closed causing an engine misfire  and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that this problem can be caused by some fuel additives. There are special procedures which may be able to restore the affected injector. If this fails the affected injector must be replaced.

Fuel Level Sensor Failure

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Deposit Buildup on Throttle Body May Cause Low Engine Idle

The engine idle may be lower than normal due to deposits built up on the throttle body, which can restrict air flow at idle. To low of an engine idle can result in a stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will generally correct this concern.
