I have truck starts great c. Sorry starts cold great just…

Customer Question
Hi I have...

Hi I have truck starts great c

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Sorry starts cold great just had all plugs wires replaced due to the fact that it would run about 10 miles and just shut down wouldn't restart. Had it in the shop replaced all , but it has worked well till now. Now starts fine then stop to get gas and thirty times it takes to finally start. Is it the computer?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 Chevy?

It's an 01-03 it's not mine but my nieces husbands truck . He has over 300k on it changes the oil every 2000 miles religiously babies it on the road. Yet

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

Well I'm just helping cause he spent a lot of money and I am a mechanic I've.

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

I haven't determined it does have multiple coils by the yr. I can't see all failing at once that is why they have gone that way other than pro Forman etc and milage
