Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 150, 00 miles
Ok, my 1989 Chevy Sub, 5.7 liter, 4wd will not start. The truck has been sitting for 3 years - with out being started. It had a 1/2 tank of gas sitting in it for those years.
I changed the oil and filter, the PVC valve, the fuel filter, air filter, battery and added 24 ounces of dry gas for the 20 gallons of gas in the tank. I also cleaned the carb with carberator cleaner and added about another 5 gallons of fresh gas. The truck will only start if I pour gas or spray carb cleaner in the carberator, it will stay on for 3 or 4 seconds, and then die. In that time, if I press the gas peda, l it will rev as much as I press. Right before it dies, the check engine light comes on. What should I try?
have the same problem?
