Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Chevy Silverado 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
The engine stopped while going 60 mph. I replaced the fuel filter (which was dirty) and checked the fuel pump, fuel pump is working and has good pressure. Checked all fuses and all are good. The engine is not getting fuel. I can pour some fuel in the intake and the engine will start and run a few seconds. Could the pressure regulator swith be defective or?
Reply to pressure check - I turned the ignition on and checked the pressure at the pressure test port by the intake manifold the pressure bled off to almost none - I poured fuel in the intake and let it run a few seconds and rechecked the pressure 18 psi.
Could a defective pressure relief valve cause this problem?
