Thread: 2001 Suburban Died, Won't Start
01-16-2010, 10:17 PM #11
I've talked to a few other people who are car knowledgeable, I've had a few suggestions that it might be the fuel pump. I tried using the truck yesterday for the first time since I got it home after being stuck and again today and it didn't have any problems.
Quick recap...if you subtract the random codes...it died twice while moving (once pulling up to a stop sign, once pulling up to my driveway) and a few times while idling in park. I've never had a problem initially starting it, and only once since it died was I not able to start it till it sat overnight and then it fired up right away. Could this be a fuel pump issue (I've got a pressure gauge on order that should be here a few days)? How would one check the ECM? Any other ideas on what it could be?Andrew

OK, tonight it died on the road while doing about 60. The engine lurched twice in about 5 seconds and then died and wouldn't restart. Gonna have it towed tomorrow. Gave me the code again about the camshaft sensor. Could it be that, or the computer?

Change the sensor, I would almost guarantee that is what is causing your problems.1997 Chevy K3500

Well, I'm not sure if it was the crankshaft sensor or the fuel pump, but we changed both and the truck is running normally now. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions!
