I have a 1500 2002 Chevy Silverado in the shop as of yesterday. It just dies and I cannot begin to understand save for the fact that it turns over and tends to get fuel when something or another cools down and allows it to. What happens is it's nice and "cooled" off (the engine temp never gets high) and I am able to go about 70-80 miles and then it will start to "pull", the idle gets sluggish and when I slow down to 30 or 40...it dies and I cannot restart it for a few hours. I replaced the fuel filter, I know it is not the pump b/c I have heard it kick on time and time again and this is the second time it has done this...so it's obviously not the pump if the thing is getting gas. I'm thinking some kind of sensor is overheating? Is there a fuel sensor that will not code when scanned? My rear 02 sensors (the heater part of them) are dead, but I do not see them as having any affect on this problem. I do not want to keep putting this thing in the shop I'm just a poor college student for cryin out loud.

i've posted such a message. I haven't done much as of yet, but change the fuel filter. I'm nearly certain it is not the pump. My gauges all read fine and there are no codes when it is scanned. It's in the shop now.

This may be a long shot but have you look at the ignition distributor? It was a recall item on my truck. Really simple item.
#457 of 1497 1990 code 22
Jul 16, 2005 (9:44 pm)
hi my name is judy
We have a 1991 chevy silvorado with w 1990 4.3 sticker on engine fan blades protector
Yet our regisdtration and title say 1991 model
it needed a throttle position sensor according to codes scan
So ! We went to napa parts store and the parts man sold me a tps for this code 22 problem and that year 1991 truck
I had my husband open the hood and try to install this sensor .....
Just to find out it is not same as what is on the truck
it looks and bolts totally differently
original one looks rounder
this one looks remarkably like a ford style one used on their throttle bodies etc ..
what is the reason for this change ?
And do we indeed have a Truck of 1990 or 1991 ?
I just would like to know what you think would be wise to do as we dont have lots of money to go to a garage to have it fixed
Also I personally know how to tell if this truck is a 1500 thing or whatever the other categories are ...
the original sensor looks rounder if that makes sense I do not know alot about these parts
Thank you for your time and consideration

There should be a sticker on the inside of the drivers door, could be on the door itself, or could be on the door jamb. If the sticker is still there, a month and year of manufacture will be listed. See what that one says.
As far as the part goes, I'd take it off and show it to the parts store clerk. That way he/she can pull both the '90 and '91 parts and compare them.

#461 of 1497 Low Coolant and problem shifting from 1st to 2nd gear
Jul 19, 2005 (7:03 am)
I have 1999 Silverado Ext Cab 3 Door. About eight months ago the low coolant light started coming on intermittently. I checked the reservoir and it looked normal. I added couple ounces of Antifreeze and the problem went away. Since than the problem came back twice and every time I added couple ounces of Antifreeze and the problem will go away. I mentioned the problem to a mechanic during the annual inspection and they pressured the system and did not find any leakage. However, in the past month I have been experiencing another problem. When the engine is shifting from 1st to 2nd gear I feel hesitation in the shifting (hick up), especially when it is cold, not as noticeable when the engine is hot. I took the truck to Adams Transmission and they checked the Transmission and changed the oil and the oil filter and they said the transmission is good but when they scanned the error they found error # 300 (engine miss fire). Any advice before I take the truck to the dealer?

Most GM trucks have a hard 1-2 shift when cold (emission reasons).
So not to worry..................
You should keep a eye out on the loss of coolant tho. Gm has had
a problem with the intake manifold gasket on late 90s 350 engine
