engine died while driving and wouldnt restart why?

Asked by Apr 03, 2012 at 07:03 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1994 suburban 1500 2wd 5.7L engine with 63000 miles (yes only 63000 miles).  Yesterday as i was driving the engine just quite and would not restart.  After having it towed to my house I tried it again this morning and it started fine and ran the whole day without a problem. The local mechanics tell me that they cant diagnose and fix unless it is actually in a not start condition.  What could be the problem?

There is no way to tell what happened. If it does it again. Try to narrow it down to an ignition problem or a fuel supply related problem. That's the best you can do for now.

Fuel pump.

Fuel pumps will fail intermittently sometimes at first before they finally quit, so borrow a fuel pressure tester from an auto parts store and look up what pressure is specified for your vehicle and replace if too low.
