Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Notice: Care must be used to ensure that the connections to both roll over valves are disconnected prior to lowering the fuel tank more than 51 mm (2 in). Roll over valves are located at both the front and rear of the fuel tank. Notice: Extreme care must be used when lowering the fuel tank. The fuel sender is made of plastic and may be damaged when lowering the fuel tank.
Notice: Do not fold or twist the strainer when installing the sending unit. This action restricts fuel flow.
Notice: The strap nuts must be tightened by steps, alternating between the four nuts until the specified torque is reached. Otherwise, the bottom of the tank will flex upward and the fuel gage will indicate fuel remaining in the tank when the tank runs dry.
one more thing if you dont mind!!
Is there a good test to verify its the fuel pump??
The vehicle is with my son at college. According to him it just died going down the street!
He pulled over and tried to start the truck. The engine turns over ...no problem with that but it wont start! I figured no fire or fuel!!
yeah....he is living the American Dream in Stillwater Oklahoma attending Oklahoma State!!
I have asked him your questions about the check engine light!! According to him, prior to the engine shutting down there was not a check light on. Only after!
I have asked to check all fuses in the fuse box located under the hood!
Not yet on the fuel question....he has class this morning! riding his bicycle.!
I will have him do the test later today!
The mens March Madness sucked this year!! But the weman are doing Ok we still have Baylor and OU!!
ok......here is the update!
after class he confirmed there was fire to the plugs. and while he was checking for fire teh engien started.
He drove it home and let it set and now it want start again. It ran fine when it ran....what could it be!
This is what we know!
We changed teh fuel filter hoping that would help....but did not.
We checked for fire to the plugs and there is not any.
We then checked teh distributor to confirm the rotor was turning it is all good and the rotor looked clean and no carbon build up.
There is no spark coming from the coil to the distributor.........How can i check the coil....and would it not trigger a check engine light if it were bad??
What else and other signals feed teh coil to ignite?
Im headed to Stillwater now to help!! I will contact with findings!
