Engine Performance problem
2002 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 168K miles
My truck just randomly died on me in the middle of the road and wouldn't start back immediately. After sitting for about an hour it started up and made it about 3 miles before I was getting a lot of jerking from the engine not getting fuel. It got towed home and sat there for a day. I started it up and it was running rough for a little bit then started running fine. I took the gas cap off and listened to the pump and it sounded like gargling. I suspected maybe that the gas guage broke and I was outta fuel. I put 5 gallons in it and now it runs fine with just a drive up and down the street. The fuel pump is still making that gargling sound instead of the purge sound right before start up. Will the fuel pump roughly work for this long before completely going out? Or is it a possible gas guage issue.
have the same problem?
