Can't start my 99 Tahoe

Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 10:39 AM about the 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe 4 Dr LT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck was running great until the fuel
pump went so I changed it . I already have
changed the cap rotor wires and plugs
day's before the pump went. I have fuel up
to the needle valve and if I spray it will
start. After running I have no issues
starting it back up but if it sits a few hours
then it won't start any ideas

Have you changed the fuel filter? You may have had some residue in the tank that has clogged the filter.

I would also use a good fuel system cleaner like Seafoam or Techron.
