  1. 01 silverado fires but won't stay running

    Here we go. Put the charger on the battery for about 3hrs and she cranks better but still won't run for more that a second or two. No dome lights or headlights. From what I've been able to find it sounds like a passlock issue. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  2. 01 silverado fires but won't stay running

    The battery is low enough that the dome lights don't come on and no door chimes with key in ignition. IIRC it had a feature that disables everything other than the ignition if the battery is low. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  3. 01 silverado fires but won't stay running

    Upstate NY, it was parked in 20 degree or less weather and has seen a few days near 50. Outside in the driveway. Second week of February was the last time it was driven or started. If I try to start it with any throttle at all it won't start. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  4. 01 silverado fires but won't stay running

    I'm going to hook the battery charger up shortly and let it cook while I run some errands. I'm hoping to get it running again without spending much time and money on it because the next place it gets parked is out front with a for sale sign. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  5. Hello all. I have a 2001 silverado 1500 4.8l with 195ish on it. I recently took it off the road and didn't touch it for a couple weeks. I went to start it yesterday and the battery was low but it did crank, the engine would fire but wouldn't stay running for more than a couple seconds. Prior to taking it off the road it always started and ran perfectly. Do you think the low battery could be the cause or has it developed a gremlin from sitting for a couple weeks?

  6. Went and looked atittoday during business hours. Yup the outside looks good but the inside has had a rough life...... I'm leaving it for the next guy. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  7. Forgot to mention that I looked at the carfax for it, I don't really like carfax as I've seen serious errors on them but It showed oil changes at goid intervals. I kinda like the fact that there's zero rust and I live in central NY where salt tends to destroy vehicles long before they wear out. I hear what you're saying though.

  8. Hello all, I am looking at an 04 1500 crew cab 1500. It has about 130k on the clock but the body is nearly perfect. I'm wondering if there is anything I should look at, so far brake and fuel lines, rear door locks and the normal rust spots are on my list to look at. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  9. Dealer or Amazon. Amazon sometimes has the supposedly dealer only parts. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  10. My '94 S-10 ZR2 had 225k on it when I sold it. Outside of routine maintenance the only thing done was a water pump. Still went done the road with a solid 60psi oil pressure and idled with just over 40. Current truck is an 01 Silverado 1500 with a 4.8l. Oil pressure is about 55psi driving and 40 at idle. 192k and climbing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  11. Probably not but it makes me feel better about the 192k on my 01 Silverado. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

  13. Have you tried eBay or a salvage yard? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  14. Have you checked the filler neck? I have had to replace mine twice, once it was so bad that it would leak gas while filling it if I wasn't careful and the second time it had a couple pinholes in it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  15. I would walk based on the price. Things to look for are rusted fuel and brake lines. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
