Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

Died on the highway. Towed back home. Days later, started fine. Replaced fuel filter and drove around town. Would not start the next morning. Changed fuel filter again, but no improvement. Changed the ignition coil. No improvement Will sputter with carb cleaner sprayed in the throttle body.

Checked all over for loose wiring, but found none.

Has 0 engine codes.

Any ideas? Could the injector be clogged?

Check the fuel pressure to rule out a weak fuel pump, also test the fuel pump relay and fuel pump and oil pressure sending unit

Low fuel pressure. Replace the fuel pump and all was well. Don't understand why it only lasted 1 year.
