Asked by Apr 08, 2015 at 07:58 PM about the 1988 Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It starts right back up but stalls at stops, what can cause this? I've
replaced water pump, thermostat, heat sensor, fan clutch, radiator cap
and even flushed the system. I'm lost.

1 Answer


sounds to me like the engine is not getting fuel fast enough to burn. Try checking the fuel lines/pump. Please let me know how did it go. Thanks
