Customer Question

Let my '97 silverado idle for four or five because my battery was going bad a couple of weeks ago. Well when i got in it to go home I give it gas and it starts cutting out like its starving for fuel. Idles great. I finally make it home after pulling over several times. Shutting it off and cranking it back up. Play with it a minute then i can tach it up and take off. Got home and let it sit about an hour and it wont start. Put a different fuel pump in it. Fire it up goes to idle back down and shuts down.
