    Default Truck keeps stalling

    I have a GMC R2500 suburban and sometimes when i try to start it it just conks out and i have to do it again and rev the engine to get it started. What would cause that to be happening?

    Could be a few different things.

    Does it stay running after the second time or will it stall?
    Does it have decreased power?

    When was your last tune up?
    Have you added anything to the fuel recently (cleaner, dry gas, etc)

    How many miles on the engine?
    I'm going to presume your check engine light is coming on, do you know how to pull the codes?

    It stays running i just have to rev it at first or it will stall, only when it hasn't been driving for a couple of hours. I didnt notice any decrease in power.
    I changed my oil a couple months ago, and have added nothing to the fuel recently.
    Theres about 100,000 miles on it, but i dont know how to pull codes.

    With 100K on her you might want to start looking at a pretty good tune up as trail leader mentioned. As far as pulling the codes, you can go to any auto parts store and they can pull them for you and tell you what they mean. Even better, you can spend less than $50 and get your own code reader. They are invaluable to have and trust me, you'll get your money's worth out of it... Greg
