Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 230000 miles
I have a 1997 chevy tahoe with 230,000 miles. It has set for a year while I was deployed, it started fine when I left now it will not start without priming with starting fluid. I did a full tune up before leaving, to include plugs, wires, cap, rotor, k&n air filter, fuel filter, new EGR, all four o2 sensors, and the fuel pump was also replaced last year. The fuel pump sounds as if it is priming for the 2 sec, sometimes it does not. Once it is started sometimes it runs fine, and will restart with in the hour, after an hour or 2 it has to be primed again. Sometimes once it is running it stumbles and dies while accelerating. It is not showing any codes at this time. I have noticed moister from the exhaust, more than normal to me. I am afraid it might be the fuel pump again, or possibly intake gaskets. Is there any way to test either, before I end up changing both?
