I have a 1998 GMC Surburban. It acts like it needs more gas.

Customer Question

I have a 1998 GMC Surburban. It acts like it needs more gas. I have replaced the inline filter under the drivers seat on the outside. I have just replaced the fuel pump. I turned on the key and off several times to let it prime. It still will not stay started. It starts and then dies within a few seconds.

System crash, BRB

I don't see how paying another $18 dollars is going to help. I haven't seen any hope in this conversation. I am not satisfied.

I think I should not have to pay $24 dollars and then another $18.
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

So sorry. I had a system problem. I have absolutely nothing to do with any charges on the site. And, lets see, you are not satisfied because you don't know what the fuel pressure is? Not sure if the security light is flashing?

There is no possible way for anyone to 'know' what the problem(s) are or is without doing a little testing.
