Customer Question
I have a 2000 GMC...
I have a 2000 GMC Sierra sl with a 4.3 engine. The truck has a 5 speed manual transmission. After filling up with gas the truck wants to bog down in !st and third gear. also most of the time it bogs going into third gear. The truck sat for a year, and I'm working to get it past emissions testing. The codes I am getting know are po141, I changed both front O2 sensors six months ago. PO161 I didn't change the down stream ones yet. I'm getting po404 and po405, I have changed the EGR valve but keep getting small pieces of carbon stuck in the valve. I read about putting a screen over the valve hole. Is that safe? I think I have a money pit on my hands. Help please! Sometimes the check engine light goes off, then comes back on.

Hello and thank you for your question,

Since you are setting the lean codes , have you installed a fuel pressure gauge and monitored the fuel pressure while the problem is occurring?

No. Can you do that while driving?
GMC Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes, all you need to do is install a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail service port and monitor the fuel pressure while the engine is bogging. Normal fuel pressure should be right at 55 to 60 PSI. Lets start with checking it first . Post back with the results and we can work from there.

I'm not working on the truck right now. Your saying it could be a fuel pressure issue. I just had a new fuel pump installed in December because the gauge was at full or empty. mostly at empty. I couldn't tell how much gas was in the tank.
GMC Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It sure dose sound like it could be a fuel pressure issue, running the fuel pressure test would at least rule it out.
