My 2000 chevy Silverado 5.3 intermittently runs fine then

Customer Question

My 2000 chevy Silverado 5.3 intermittently runs fine then will die then not start. i've put brand-new coil packs plugs wires fuel pump fuel filter. I think we can rule out the pass lock system because the security light does not come on when I'm driving it

Expert:  Gary replied 10 months ago.

when it will not start up will it somewhat run on starting fluid or carb cleaner being sprayed down the throttle body ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Don't know it's running again
Expert:  Gary replied 10 months ago.

how often will it do this ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It did it twice in 2 days
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
There are no codes stored either
Expert:  Gary replied 10 months ago.

and there are no odes set in the computer history or current ?

if no get it to act up and see if it will somewhat run on starting fluid or if its missing spark when it will not start

once we know if its spark or fuel we are missing we will know which direction to go next

Oh I forgot to add when I did get it to start running again last night I had to keep the motor revved up even at a stoplight or else I would die then by the time I got home I could let off the gas again and I wouldn't die

i sure do not want to guess here on what the problem is

get it to not start and see which is missing
