Customer Question
Working on a '07 Chevy...
Working on a '07 Chevy Pickup. Put a new rebuilt motor in the truck and the engine is turning over and starting but then turning off shortly after sitting idle for only seconds. I thought it was a fuel injector problem but the fuse and relay both are getting power. I'm also getting a P code 0523 regarding to an engine oil pressure sensor fault but the sensor seems intact and the fuel pressure is 60 PSI. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this kind of issue. The truck only starts when you put gas in the throttle body.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The old engine had bad lifters which damaged the camshaft. The engine was completely replaced there is a new rebuilt motor in the car..
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 1 month ago

have you made sure all of the grounds are connected......especially any that bolt to the back of the heads

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
all of the ground is connected the problem is the fuel injector isn't spraying but it has power going to it.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 1 month ago

Have you tested injector pulse on the injectors with either a noid light or a test light while cranking to see if it flashes on and off

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I tested it with a test light with the ignition switch in both the on and off position. It has power.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 1 month ago
I know...test across the connector while cranking and see if the test light flashes

Can you look at live data with your scanner

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
no I can not.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 1 month ago

There is no way you can find what cylinder or cylinders are misfiring without that. You would have to start guessing. Could be injectors, bad fuel, spark plugs, coil etc
