97 Chevy k1500 starting issues

Asked by Jul 05, 2017 at 08:14 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Chevy 97 k1500 truck having starting
issues. If left alone for hours it'll start with no
problems at all. If I try to run it after it's been off for
10 or more minutes it has trouble turning over and
I have to build up the rpms to get it to start. Then
have to keep on the gas pedal to keep it running
until it can finally go into gear without trying to
stall. While this is happening I can see my oil
gauge fluctuate quite a bit until it finally can get
into gear. Just had oil changed. Anyone have any
ideas?
Thanks
