I own a 2000 1/2 ton GMC Sierra Truck 4.8 Liters(160 000 km) and have been having problems starting it up when it is cold outside. It has been around -20 to -25 degrees C. The last couple of days. The truck has been plugged in and the block heater is working because I can here it. This happpened also during the last cold spell and I thought it may just be bad gas or moisture in the tank. However it is happening again with the cold weather. It has taken me between 5 to 10 tries before it will catch and start running. The last time it didn't start, we pushed it into a warm garage for a couple of hours and then it started. What do you think needs to be fixed? I really don't want to be wearing out the starter.
have the same problem?
