Customer Question

I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 LBY. Yesterday while driving up a hill I noticed it "hesitate" for a moment. I looked at my fuel guage and it said there was 14 gallons of fuel.About 2 miles later, I ran out of fuel?" Tried to start but no go! I was about 50 yards ftom the gas station so I got my fuel can and got 5 gallons of fue. Primed it and it started up. Filled the tanks and continued on.."no problem!" Got on the freeway and ran it WOT no problem, gunned it for about 5 seconds "no problem!" So I'm thinking ...bad fuel, last tank was 'dieisel #2( normally run #1. or injector problems! Please advise.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

so,you are saying it wasnt in fact out of fuel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Correct! But after adding 5 gallons, priming it started and ran fine! And still running fine??
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok,,does the engine light stay on now?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

it seems to run well now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Runs fine! Did I mention it threw a DIC 1093???
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok,,one moment

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

the code is p1093?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When it" ran out of fuel" andI added five gallons of fuel that is when I noticed the 'check engine light!' Putmy tester on and and that is the code that came up!
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok,,but,it wasnt out of fuel ..right?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My fuel guage indicated 14 gallons of fuel in the tank!!!
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok...is the fuel gauge reading correctly now?

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

so,you are saying it was out of fuel for sure..but you show you have fuel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Shows 30 gallons of fuel!
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

ok,,i will give you my thoughts.

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

first,if for a fact it was out of fuel,but,it shows you have fuel,then i would think that the fuel level sender is bad in the fuel tank

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

that would explain the code,,the code is for the fuel rail pressure sensor

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

but,if it ddnt actually run out of fuel..the problem may be the fuel rail sensor is bad..or

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

a common thing that will cause this engine to die like this[if it wasnt out of fuel] would be a bad cam sensor

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

a cam sensor can do this with heat sometimes when they go bad and most times not give a code for it

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is it likely to occur again given the above "thoughts?"
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

if it wasnt really out of fuel..i would think it is likley to happen again,,yes
