Engine Performance problem
2001 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I have a 2001 Tahoe with 170K miles. It has been a great truck but lately it started not starting easily under specific circumstances. It starts great, first try, whenever the engine is cold. If you run it allow it to get to normal running temps then shut it off, then start it again within 5 minutes or so it starts fine, but if you wait longer, it doesn't want to start unless you turn the key (not to start just to turn the electric on) then wait 5 seconds then it will start. If you get in the car and just turn the key it takes three tries before it will start unless it has had time to cool all the way down.
Since the issue has begun, I have: Cleaned the K&N air filter, changed battery, changed the plugs, changed the plug wires, changed the fuel filter, changed the fuel pressure regulator, changed the pcv valve. None of this has helped.
have the same problem?
