Asked by Mar 01, 2017 at 09:36 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Chevy Silverado 2001 will run for about
10 to 15 minutes and then It' will shut down
it seems like it might be electrical I know it's
not the fuel pump. It's like it'll recharge
within 10 hours and then I could drive it for
another 10 minutes it's been doing this for
about a month I haven't been able to drive it
does anybody know what it might be.?????

put a voltage meter on battery while engine is running voltage should be over 13 v...sounds like its shutting off because voltage is too low

you need to check for spark , fuel pressure and injector pulse when it does not run , even if you have fuel pressure some vehicles are particular about the exact pressure .

and scan for codes even if the dash light is not on , let us know what happens .
