Hello. If you have fuel pressure and the car runs off of starter fluid that tells me the ECM is not injecting fuel. Is there any fault codes or security light flashing when cranking ?

Finally to run on its own but while driving that fuel gauge will go crazy and it will shut off turn the key and will crank right back up run for a while and do it again
Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Sounds like there is a communications fault. Is the gas gauge the only gauge that goes erratic ?

I can't the headlights off and at night time with the key off and outta the ignition u can very lightly see some of the digital gear display and the security light flashes all the time
Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok is there anything that was worked on right before this happened ? Or is there anything aftermarket installed in the car ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok I will have to opt out at this point. This problem is not a common one for me and I don't want to waste any more of your time. My apologies. Another expert should be along soon to help.

Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

On its own now and this was and accidentally fixed still don't know how I done it the problem now is u will be driving and the fuel gauge will go crazy and it will shut off but start right back up and security light blinks all the time it will run like a new sewing machine until that guage goes crazy
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

ok the fuel gauge going crazy and the not running at times have one thin in common, the fuel pump module. there is a connector from the car body harness to the module that has big issues with corrosion and bad connections.

check the connector for any damage or corrosion

The body mod was replaced a month before I got it so that might be the problem where is it located
Chevy Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

no, bcm has no effect on the fuel system. it controls body functions not engine functions.

did you check the wiring diagram I sent to you

Roy
