Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Just started to have this problem. will not stay running and if you push the gas pedal it will stall out like it is not getting any fuel. if you start it and don't touch the pedal it will run for about 45 seconds to 1 minute. not sure what it could be. got to work with no problem and when I started out to go home it began to sputter then died. had to have it towed home and the above is all that will happen. Please help!

You may be losing fuel pressure or have a hard fault in the electronics of the engine control system. Do this, have the fuel pressure checked and have a fault code test run on the computer system. If all is ok then the ignition starter switch is suspect as well and the MAF sensor which will not set a fault when it fails.

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

Fuel Cut Solenoid: Testing and Inspection
An inoperative shutdown solenoid can cause a no-start condition. Disconnect solenoid harness connector and with ignition switch in the "ON"
position momentarily touch solenoid harness connector to solenoid connector. If a "click" sound is heard, the solenoid circuit is operating
properly. If "click" is not heard, the system should be diagnosed as follows:
1. With test lamp connected to ground and the ignition switch in the "ON" position, backprobe the shutdown harness connector. If the test lamp
does not light check for open circuit form the ignition switch to the solenoid.
2. If the test lamp lights, check the ground circuit between solenoid stud and injection pump cover to see if connectors are clean and tight. If the
connections are not clean and tight repair and retest.
3. If the ground circuit is "OK", remove the injection pump cover. Connect a jumper wire between solenoid ground connector and ground. With
the ignition switch in the "ON" position, momentarily touch shutdown solenoid harness connector to shutdown solenoid terminal. If solenoid
operates, check for internal injection pump problem.
4. If the solenoid will not operate, replace the shutdown solenoid.
Fuel Cut Solenoid: Service and Repair
REMOVE OR DISCONNECT:
1. Remove pump cover.
2. Terminal contact nuts.
INSTALL OR CONNECT:
1. Solenoid in the pump cover.
- On the shutdown solenoid, make sure that the linkage is free.
- On the cold advance solenoid, make sure that the plunger is centered so that it will contact the check ball in the fitting.
2. Insulating washers on the terminal studs.
3. Terminal nuts and tighten to 1 Nm (9 in lbs).
4. Pump cover.
5. Inspect solenoid operation prior to installing the pump cover. Use a 12 volt DC power source.

just a suggestion, but it might be possible you only need a fuel filter and not a pump and with a new filter you should be able to run your tank lower

Start with replacing the fuel filter. The Aveo fuel filter is located passenger-side rear, in front of the
If there is no filter there, then the filter is a non serviceable filter and is integrated with the fuel sending unit. Your going to have to replace the fuel sending unit if the fuel pressure is slow, start with running fuel injector cleaner through the fuel system for the next few fill up's and hope that will clear up the issues your having.
The other thing to is that your IAC (idle air control) valve may be dirty and is stuck close, you can try cleaning it by spraying Throttle body cleaner through the throttle body, paying attention to the IAC passageway. A dirty of faulty EGR valve will also do the same thing.
Start with the simple and inspect to see if you do have a external fuel filter, and inspect the wire leads to the IAC, EGR and clean them with throttle body cleaner. Don't forget to run the fuel injector cleaner through your gas tank.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.
