Truck shuts off once put into gear


Asked by Aug 27, 2016 at 08:24 PM about the 1993 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently received my dads truck and I'm trying to
do some TLC on it. Runs great sounds amazing !
Throw it in drive and it shuts off if you don't keep
your foot on the gas. If you keep it in park it runs
like a charm. Then I turned on the defrost and it
shut off just as it did when you put it into gear. Any
helpful hints would be much appreciated

Is it when the truck is cold or warmed up?
