1999 Silverado 5.3 V8
The other day on my way to work, my truck died. I stopped, and restarted it, and it kept going for two more blocks before dying at an intersection. It will crank strongly, and sometimes it'll start but it won't stay running. It sounds like it's either starving for air or starving for gas. The fuel filter was old so I replaced it, I've Triple Checked the fuses under the hood and inside the cab. The Fuel pressure regulator seems to be okay, and the fuel pump IS engaging. We've checked the plugs, fuses, Fuel pump, regulator, and filter. When it DOES turn over, it'll run fine for a few seconds, untill it starts to sputter and die. Sometimes right when it's about to die, it'll rev back up to normal idle. Completely Dumbfounded. I did remove the new filter today to see if the gas is the filter is discolored, and it's as normal as can be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
