ECM or Fuel Pump

Christine Black

Asked by Dec 19, 2015 at 10:29 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe

Question type: General

Ran out of gas, 3 times in 5 weeks. Now truck isn't
starting. I've replaced the fuel coil,  fuel relay
sensor and the fuel filter. Still no start. Is it the
ECM or fuel pump? Or what?

I'm thinking that it's the fuel pump. Any ideas?!!!

Andrew Olsen

When you run it dry you ruin the pump. So yes it's your fuel pump. Stop running it out of gas!


You shouldn't run with less than 1/4 tank, fuel cools the pump. multiple fuel run out will kill a pump.

Thanks Andrew and Mike. I went and got the pump, now to find someone to install it without going broke! Lol
