Asked by Sep 26, 2012 at 09:50 PM about the 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLE 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey I got a 1995 sierra 5.7l v8 z71 with 450,000k and well this problem first started after i drove for about
25minutes or + then parked for 5 minutes and restarted my engine almost immediately after started its like it
stalls. The battery volts go down oil pressure goes down and it vibrates and shuts off. happened alot during the
summer and then stopped for a month now even sometimes when im driving alot even in a parking lot the
same thing happens im accelerating and then its like it looses power and battery volts go down as well as the
oil pressure and dies but i can start it right away. and sometimes when its doing this if i accelerate alot harder it
won't die. For winter i need tires rear brakes and my power steering pump is leaking so before i start putting
money into this i need to fix this issue. Any thought or potential solutions would be greatly appreciated.

u can check the battery by hooking up a charger to it and running it whole the charger is on, by the sounds of the issue it could be a little more severe theo, could be in need of a tune up or it could even be a bad sensor causing ur sputtering issue
