#317 of 421 non-manufacture fuel pump
Nov 21, 2009 (3:47 pm)
I have a 2003 chevy silverado 1500 and its attemting to start, but sputters & dies out. I got a new fuel pump less than a year ago. It is a non manufacture pump & was pricey. First I replaced the fuel filter, that worked.Then we put a new starter in (that wasnt the problem).After that I replaced the crank shaft censor; that worked for a few days. Then It did the same thing. I had it towed to a shop; they just replaced a fuse & it started and I drove it. The next day it wouldnt start again. The truck attepts to but sputters out & dies. I just am not sure what else it could be. Any ideas?

up by the throttel body driver side, there is a small 3/16 dia. rubber vacuum hose connected to it. If you pull the hose and it has fuel in it the vacuum hose the regulator is bad.
I think the cost is about $30 and take only a few minutes to change

Hey there guys.. read posts and seems my issue might be alittle different. I have a 2001 GMC 2500HD 4x4 and when I start the truck it justs cycles and doesnt start. Release the key and try to start again, the truck fires up. Thinkin possible dirty filter not allowing enough fuel in line??? Having no idle or accelaration issues...
Also, after I start, my "LOW FUEL" light comes on and the gauge reads on empty. Then once I start driving the gauge jumps to the right level and the light goes out. When I come to a stop, within seconds the light goes back on and the gauge drops to "E". And so on and so on....
Anything solutions would be great! Can this be a filter issue as well or might it be an electrical issue!

I have a problem with my 2001 silverado. I went to start it one morning and it started for a second or two then died. turned the key off turned it back on herd the pump run for 3 seconds then tried to start it. It started for 1 or 2 seconds and dies. I can repeat this over and over with the same outcome.
If the pumps runs could there be another problem.
