had to replace the fuel pump. was not cheap fix. found out i had a duel tank system
Fuel pump went out, truck stopped and wouldn't start, chev replaces $1200, with lifetime warranty on part only. Must keep receipt to show if goes bad,
hard to start keeps trying several time finely starts..think its fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump or the fuel filter
Fuel pump was noisy for extended time. Lost power on hills and ran rough.
had fuel pump replaced in 2005 and now in 2012 it cranks but wont turn over. Also alternator went bad in the same day?
