Truck won't stay running

Asked by Oct 13, 2016 at 06:47 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Long Bed 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck will start and when I give a little gas it
stays running but when I let off the pedal it shakes
and then dies. A few people say it's the fuel pump
but if it not what else could it be?

It could be the pump best way would be to test the pressure. You could have a clogged gas filter. You could also have clogged injectors. When was the last time you did a full tune up, plugs, wires..

as said above...check fuel pressure/filter > http://www.agcoauto.com/content/news/p2_articleid/280

It was a couple months ago, I changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, rotor and distributor cap.
