Asked by Jul 03, 2015 at 10:35 AM about the 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe 4 Dr LS 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So the guy that's looking at my car said that
the earth is not enough pressure coming
from the fuel pump even though its running
to get it to start and just a starting because
it will backfire and go to die when I step on
the gas so is that really my fuel pump or is
that something else?

Sorry about typos using my voice recognition

From what I can decipher, for one thing it does not have a carburetor, it has a throttle body. Resembles a carb. But you can get it to idle, but not run when you give it throttle. I think earth means ground to Dragon,.Kinect Cortana or Speaktoit. only ones I know and your fuel pump has a bad ground? Possible. Backfire through exhaust or back up out of intake?
