Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Adam. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you today. Unfortunately, on most GM vehicles, when you run out of fuel, this quickly harms the fuel pump. The fuel itself is used to keep the fuel pump cool during operation. When there is no fuel to keep it cool, it burns out internally, very quickly. At this point, the fuel pressure reading will need to be taken and see if the fuel pump is working at full capacity. There is no external, serviceable fuel filter on this vehicle, so if fuel pressure is low, either the pump is failing or some tank debris was pulled into the internal filter and has clogged. You can "try" a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, but like I say, more commonly, it's going to be a pump issue here. Correct fuel pressure for this vehicle is 57-67 psi and does not decrease greater than 5 psi in 1 minute with key-on/engine-off.
