problem #4

Jan 012009

Silverado V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

I have to turn the key on 3 times just to get fuel to engine seems like.

Unless the truck has been running recently

without starting the truck I can hear the pump running when I turn on the key, then I hear something like pressure relief from the tank area..... so I know the pump is pushing fuel, why does it have a problem starting?

problem #3

May 012005

Silverado Extended Cab V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles

It takes at least two tries to start the truck, unless I used it within the last couple of hours. Its not the battery, If I turn the key to on without starting it, that makes it work. It feels like it isn't getting fuel on the first try.
