124295 fuel filter has been changed
Chevy Mechanic: BOBBYSS, Master Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you. most of the time this is caused by the relief valve in the fuel rail. It is locate behind the nut at the end of the rail. The check valve becomes worn out or warped and at times will not seat causing a loss of fuel pressure. That loss causes the engine to go into limp mode. There are aftermarket check valves that last a lot longer than the factory ones. Please let me know if you need more help.
