Customer Question
Hello...My 67 silverado has...

Hello...My 67 silverado has a new fuel pump which I thought would solve the problem....It didn't. The engine starts and runs very well, but occasionally while cruising (25 to 50 mph) the engine will cough and quit exactly as if it is running out of gas. When it quits, I go to neutral, sometime while still rolling, and turn the key, and it starts back up immediately. Could it be the fuel pump relay...or something else...I need help...las

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

Both..If still rolling, I shift to neutral. If I stop, I go to Park or Neutral both work. Usually, when it cuts out, I keep rolling, (traffic permitting)hit hit the key and it starts right up.. I have***** but no wheel locks.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?

A mechanic installed the fuel pump to no avail. The relay looks like a simple installation that I could probably do myself,

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is all I know...

What year is the vehicle? You have 67 listed. Is it a different year by chance?

Thank you for that information.

Do you know if the engine is losing or missing spark or fuel when it stalls?
