Truck started..accelerate..the fuel filter, the problem..die…

Customer Question
Truck started to bog out...
Truck started to bog out, and then died shortly after, when trying to accelerate from a stop. After changing the fuel filter, the problem still persists. It will start and idle somewhat roughly, and when I give it any gas it begins to bog down and die out. Service engine light came on a couple days ago giving me a P1415 as its code which is the Secondary Air Injection (AIR) System Bank 1. Will that cause my truck to act that way and what other possible causes could it be?

Hello, I will do my best to help answer your General Motors Vehicle questions.

 

Have you had any services performed lately?

 

Have you had you fuel pressure tested?

 

No the P1415 should not cause an issue with the running.

I changed the transmission fluid out last week. No fuel pressure tests yet.
Chevy Mechanic: GMWrencher, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
You definitely need to start with checking to make sure your air filter is clean, (no K&N brand or reusable type filter recommended) as well as no air intake leaks after the air flow sensor. Thats the sensor just past the air cleaner and located in the duct for the intake. If it has any cracks or vacuum leaks it can cause the exact same problem. If all is good there, test fuel pressure. It would need to be around 55-62. Thats the specs.

so if the fuel pressure isnt right i guess faulty fuel pump?
Chevy Mechanic: GMWrencher, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
If the fuel pressure isn't correct and the fuel filter didn't correct it, the next likely problem is the pump and then possibly the fuel pressure regulator.
