#4 of 492 99 Silverado cranks, but won't start!
May 28, 2007 (5:43 pm)
Hi! My question is in reference to my 99 Chevy Silverado 1500. It cranks, but won't start. I checked the obvious (out of gas, etc.) and changed the fuel pump/filter. It still won't start. Cranks and will 1/2 catch for a second, but then nothing. Before I sink a boat load of money into this thing at the dealership, any idea? Your help is appreciated. Thanks!!
#5 of 492 Chev Silverado starting problems

I have a 2002 Silverado with 5.3L engine. Occasionally, when I turn it off, come back a few minutes later, it turns over but won't start. Leave it 15 mins and it starts. Recently wouldn't start at all, dealership put in fuel filter and fuel pump. Problem persists. Good fuel pressure (55psi). A second dealership has no idea of the cause; cjecked relay and its good. Message Center indicates low fuel when it's not starting (lots of fuel in it). Anybody have this problem, and know whats the cause?

RUSTY..........No imm. start when hot ?
Sounds like the FPR (fuel pressure reg.). Easy to check.
Locate the fpr. Run engine then shut off. Pull off
vaccuum line on side of FPR....WITH ENGINE OFF!!!!
If wet with fuel.........Its bad !!!
Many posts of no hot start and FPR failures on older GM
v-8 trucks around the net.............

Last night while driving all the gauges quit working and the a/c compressor kicked off , but the truck still ran fine .
Any help would be greatly appreciated .

Start with the battery cables and connections........
Problems with the battery bolts bottoming out in the
terminals and not using/replacing the crush washers.
BTW: Any mods or a killer stereo installed?

I have a Western snow plow . I think there is a short or loose ground wire somewhere . I got the truck running , but every so often when I hit a bump , the gauges go dead . I will be checking all the conections tomorrow .

Let the fuel pump prime before turning the engine over ... then turn over without hitting the gas. If it keeps flooding you may need to get the ignition retarded or have the engine tuned. Automatic choke issues may cause problems.
It could be the fuel filter needs a change. Using an engine additive may cause problems too as it dissolves so much sediment in your tank that it clogs everything up.
Starters are bullet proof on the Chevy but worth changing every 10 years as is the alternator.
#11 of 492 92 Silverado 4.3l V6 Starting problems
Aug 08, 2007 (6:32 am)
I have read several posts similar to my problem and still have not seen much about it being fixed, so any help would be great.
I have a 92 Silverado 4.3 V6, 5-spd manual trans. Truck will not always start when turning the key, Dash lights and radio fire up but engine does not fire. Most of the time I hear a click and sometimes there is not click at all. If I let the truck sit for 5-15 minutes and try again, it starts right up. I have had this problem off and on for more than a year and sure it must be a simple fix. I have changed fuel pump, filter, starter , plugs, battery, neutral safety switch, wires, plugs, cables, coil and still cannot find out what the deal is. It is as if there is a relay being tripped or a fuel pressure backup somewhere that needs to dissipate before the truck will start. If anyone has any ideas, I am certainly appreciative.
