Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
The truck runs fine on the highway but if you hit stop and go traffic, it will feel as if the truck is gas starved when you hit the peddle. The longer you idle or sit at a light when hot, the worse the problem gets until you can't accelerate at all and it stalls. Immediate restart is out of the question as it normally takes 5-10 mins to "cool off" before it will start. Restarting isn't easy as the starter winds very slowly but it eventually starts. Engine temps and all gauges are normal. Turning on the A/C makes the problem worse. I just replaced the inline rail fuel filter thinking it was clogged but the problem is still there.
have the same problem?
