I replaced the fuel pump and the motor just turns over but wont start the motor just died while I was driving it just keeped turning over sounded like fuel pump went out so i replaced it but it still just turns over and still won't start
My truck would not take the gas while driving down the street then cut off. After sitting for 15 minutes or so it would crank back up and drive a little while longer then repeat it all over again. I had to replace the fuel pump.
Chugs while decelerating and accelerating at any given time of day. about to replace third fuel pump in as many years. will change fuel filter also.
engine hard to start, already replace the throttle body assy,,but still hard to start only when i press the gas pedal but when release engine die
The fuel pump just dies with no warning, it started in the morning but would not start later in the day.
same as everyone else. Fuel pump went out. Truck started acting weird... lights flashing on and off in the interior; door locking and unlocking; alarm not setting... not sure how that is related to fuel pump. But, had it towed to dealership and they replaced the fuel pump. That fixed the problem.
Vehicle used to start right up all the time. Then it began to just crank and not start. I had to crank it two, three or more times to get it to start. I had a Chevy dealer evaluate it and they said I needed a new fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. I had another shop tell me the same thing and I then had both items replaced. Vehicle now starts up on the first try. I also had the repair shop change the fuel filter when they changed the fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator.
I purchased this used in May 2015 and have had to replace the fuel pump module sensor in July 15 and again last week. It wouldn't start again this morning having just had one replaced last week and it is now being towed to dealership. Upon further research the fuel pump module sensor has been replaced 4 times since April 2014. Chevy corporate said they would contact e dealership to research but hey said that last week and I was still sent on my way. If he vehicle cuts out when I am driving, to my understanding, I will lose power steering and power brakes. What do I do?
Truck stopped turning over. Stalled on several occasions. Thought it was the starter. Turned out to be fuel
Fuel pump failed right after filling up with gas. Ran rough, then backfired and wouldnt start. Found a replacement, mechanic, and replaced the pump in the parking lot.
fuel pump continued to lose prime so DROPPED THE TANK, and replaced the fuel pump, filter, and had the fuel injectors cleaned and the regulator replaced while there.
Have changed fuel filter, throttle position sensor, crank shaft sensor, mass air flow sensor and computer. Engine runs chunky and eventually stalls out. Won't restart for hours
Got the truck to run but when I put my foot on the gas spiders like it's not getting gas unplugged pump relay while running the truck shuts off maybe I have to change the oil pump sensor how can I check to gas pressure on the truck
