Engine Performance problem
2000 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
I dorve approx.75 miles, everything worked fine, when the engine ran high rpm's and had trouble getting up to 30-40 miles an hour. Turned the corner after approx. 1/2 mile and the ngine died. Tried turning it over and it would but not start. No service engine light. Called for a tow, towed back the 75 miles, dropped off in driveway and it turned over and ran normal, prob. Due to the cooling off. Lately I've had low coolant light come on I would check it and seemed normal in the overflow, would add some more and would stay off for a few months, last two days ive noticed drips of coolant. And now with this no low coolant light either. The last few weeks, ive noticed about 2-3 times it would lag, hesitate with power but it was just momentary and didn't last like this. I've also had over the last 6 months a service engine light come on and read the code and it was emmisions, the technician told me it was common with chevy and mostle erase the code when it comes on and thats about it, its been happening more lately. I didn't drive it tonight after the tow because I didnt want it to stall somewhere. But starts and runs fine.
have the same problem?
