2001 2500HD Chevy crew cab 8.1L - Every once in awhile the motor will die while I am getting up to speed for about a second or two and the battery light comes up and goes away when the motor comes back on. It seems to only happen every few hundred miles, I put about 150 miles on it a week. It hasn't really been too serious, just throws you back in the seat when you push the gas pedal in more after it dies then comes back alive. 150k miles.
2003 Chevy suburban 5.3L - The other night I accidentally ran the battery down by leaving the radio on while I was waiting for my daughter to get out of dance class. So I got a jump start, once It charged up enough I tried to start it. The motor spun for a good 6-7 seconds before it started, its never took that long before. Had 14 volts once it started so I put it in gear and started to drive away. When I came to a stop to turn, I gave it gas and the motor stalls with the front end of the truck hanging in the road. So i quick start it back up, starts normal, put it in reverse and parked it. Then it didn't want to idle anymore, it struggled and struggled to keep it running like there wasn't enough fuel. So I had to drive it home using both feet on the pedals to keep the motor alive at stops. This morning I pulled wires of battery make sure they were clean, left it unhooked for bout 20 minutes see if reseting the computer would help. Started up fine, drove it around the block. Ran fine, didn't stall at stop signs. Then I got to my driveway gave it enough gas to coast up it but it died after I left off the gas. Started it back up, idles fine, put it in gear still good. Put it back in park still idles, but if you give it just a little gas the motor will die. 53k miles.
Gosh that was a lot of typing.
