2005 Colorado starting problems
Can anyone help me out.
I drive a 05 Colorado 100,000K, any no problems with it other than a starting problem that happens once or twice a year.
During a cold start, i would turn the key and start the engine other than when i turn the key to start it cranks but doesnt start as if it isnt getting any gas. After about ten minutes i eventually get it started. Now i know it isnt the fuel pump because it doesnt hesitate and it runs fine after i get it started.
i took it to a mechanic i had him clean the throttle body, injectors, pressure check the fuel pump etc and nothing was wrong. He gave me some tips on starting based on GM starting problems with trucks and stated that theres a check valve in the pump or sending unit in the tank that gets stuck closed and does pump the correct pressure to the TB. If the problem happens again turn the key to the On Position wait a few seconds and turn it off. then start again the same way and it will pump the valve open again. Does this sound correct or does anyone have any other input?? I might have awnsered my own question here but does anyone have had this similiar problem. Let me know
