Currently, the truck will turn over , but sometimes won't start unless I use starting fluid. I took it to a shop and it started fine with them. Their recommendations were that the fuel pump and strainer will soon need to be replaced. Since they could find no problem at the time, I declined the maintenance. I drove the truck to the store later and the problem returned and I again had to use starting fluid to start it.
Replaced the fuel filter, when I run the truck for more than 3 hours I lose acceleration and backfires bad. I love my Chevy thou . 31/f/Gillette welder
Engine stop while driving. Engine turns but would not start again as if running out of diesel. Before bring it to the mechanic, I want to make sure to get some advice. Is it the pump relay? Is it the fuel filter clogged problem. Or the pump itself. Anyone know how much the fuel pump cost to replace.
Replaced fuel pump with Bosch high output and changed fuel injection from central sequential to Delco multiport
