I was just wanting to know if there is anyone who knows what the prob is , I use my truck for work and I need to get it fixed asap. It acted like it wanted to die on me then it just stalled and quit. The engine will turn over but it wont start up. I will never buy another chevy. never. I should have gone with a ford, they are the only ones that didn't take any bail out money

Silverado 1500 4.8L V8

  • Automatic transmission

I have owned this truck for 3 months, and it has done this 3 times now- turn key and there is nothing!!! First time, I left truck at a friends after boosting. I called a tow truck the next morning and had them pick the truck up and take it to a mechanic. When they unlocked it he tried and it started! It was 30 miles from home so he towed it to the mechanic. My mechanic asked me what I wanted him to do, but I had him do nothing as truck was working now. A week later, the same thing happened, but I waited 10 minutes to try again, and it started. Yesterday I go to start it and nothing; turn the key and not even a sound. I checked the starter connections, and all were OK. I go out this morning and truck starts, and has repeatedly started all day.

I am wondering has anyone else had this problem? If so did you find out what causes it?

Thanks All...................Chris

the engine wont turn over, the battery is good though. fuel pump kicks on, but engine doesn't even click when you turn the key on. it drove fine all day long, but when i needed to go to work the damn thing takes a big fat sh*t on me.
