just stop running

Asked by Jul 05, 2015 at 08:20 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Silverado LB HD RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

stopped at stop sign and my truck just turned off , it turns over but sounds like it's not getting any gas . changed fuel filter but still just turns over but wont start .  I sprayed starting fluid into carb , it starts but then stops within 2 to 3 seconds . when i turn the ignition on i can here the fuel pump humming for about 5 seconds then click off , and before this problem started , every time i started the truck the fuel pump would have a high pitch sound , even as it was running .  Is that sound normal or is that an indication that the fuel pump was slowing going out ?  appreciate your help .

I would look into the fuel pump if it is making that kind of noise then go from there.
