Asked by Apr 05, 2017 at 06:34 PM about the 1990 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Should check the fuel pressure. It should be 9 to 13 lbs. Change out the fuel filter first. May be the fuel regulator or fuel pump could be bad. Also check for vacuum leaks, snug up the intake manifold bolts and check the TBI base gasket. Clean the TBI and Air Idle Control Valve and port, take the AIC out to clean the port.
