Gmc: 10 6 cylinder that stalls out when it gets hot..runs great…

Customer Question
I have a 02 gmc...
I have a 02 gmc s-10 6 cylinder that stalls out when it gets hot. Everything runs great up to 89 deg. farheneit. Once the the weather gets warm thetruck will stall out randomly while driving or after stopping. Stop lights are the worst, I can keep the truck running at 500 rpm by pressing the accelerator, but I can't let the rpm's get over 2000 when the light changes or it will stall out. the warmer it gets the longer it takes to restart. Finally the truck has stalled out on the highway while drfiving but not with the cruise on.

Greetings and Welcome to Just answer.

What is the mileage on your truck and when was the last time you did a tune up?

 

 

 

Is the check engine light on?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
210000. the last tune up was at 180000 the check engine light is on but started after the stalling started. The code comes back o2 sensors or catylitic converter. all 3 o2s have been replaced and the cat was replaced as well. all at 192000
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 8 years ago

Do you recall any of the code numbers?

 

Was the fuel filter replaced during those tune ups?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
the radiator was done at 158000 and a recore installed I also had the fuel filters done then. I had a new fuel pump and filters done at 100020 roughly
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 8 years ago
If you have not changed the fuel filter since then, I suspect that may be the issue. THe filter is due every 25000 miles. I suggest you take it out and see if it is plugged. If so, it may have damaged the pump from the strain of pushing the fuel through the plugged filter.

When I had the fuel filter changed at 158,000 miles the truck was already stalling and it made no difference

Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 8 years ago
The damage may have been done then. What we need to do is verify the fuel pressure. it should not drop below 50 psi.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Pressure was checked and it was fine
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 8 years ago

OK, then was there any MAF codes? Does it continue to stall when you umplug the MAF?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

No codes for the MAF

Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 8 years ago

Do you have the specific codes?

Can you post them here so I am not guessing which codes are set?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

I am in construction and have to get up at 4 tomorrow, it is time for me to call it a night. Would like to finish this conversation tomorrow, how do I get the codes to you
