Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe

2 Answers

Tahoe acts like its ran out of gas,starts after it sits a while.then same thing.now its worse

It started out i thought i was out of gas, was stuck for half an hour, added fuel and it started right up.next day same thing acts like its running out of fuel. it has gotten worse now it wont start after several tries. had it towed, this morning started up just fine long enough to put it up on ramps,now it wont start.I have looked all over for an inline fuel filter,fuel pressure regulator. I can not find either. can someone tell me if there is one and where its located,or any ideas of why this is happening.

First change the inline filter and Have a fuel pump test performed before going any further...if it passes the test then next injector etc..but with this gas today...fuel pump and filters are a common failure..

The regulator is probably under the intake manifold along with your injectors...the pump is in the fuel tank and the filter is usually on the firewall...

probably not fuel filter . probably going to have to remove the upper intake and replace the fuel injector spider(fuel inj assebly) if it is droping fuel pressure it is leaking into the upper manifold

Hello, yes the check valve is in the fuel pump assembly. The check valve is leaking and the pump will burn out soon. Unfortunately the aftermarket fuel pumps can be very unreliable. A good portion of problems we see on this site are from people who replace the pump sometimes twice and it still doesn't work.

replace your MAP sensor(manifold absolute pressure) the map sensor is the computer for your fuel pressure regulator telling how much pressure. Unless your tahoe runs like **** going up hill than it inevitably your fuel pump

I just replaced the fuel pressure regulator and now I am hearing a vibrating noise from the fuel line under the truck. What do you think the problem is.

Your gas could be bad from sitting for 4 months. If you can get it started again, try running the gas down as low as possible and fill up with 90 octane (premium) gas and a can of gas treatment. This is the easiest thing to check 1st. If it continues, could be your fuel pump going bad.

Acts like it can't get gas.


Your last sentence has me wondering, did u purchase gas for both vehicles at the same gas station? How far apart did u fill them up (same day, 2 days apart...) I am wondering if you got some bad gasoline. It would explain your problems and the coincidence of both vehicles giving u this type of problem. How about draining the gas out of the vehicle w/ the least in the tank, replace the fuel filter again add fresh gas from a different station. This is of course assuming your fuel pump is ok. When the gas is removed do u see any sediment? Any water would be at the bottom of the tank (gas floats on water) so u should check for water also. Let me know what u discover. good luck!! countrycurt0
