watch out for your fuel pumps. My dad has a '97 C-2500 p/u and the fuel pump was bad and the sock was clogged. Watch out.

Fuel pumps do go bad. Hardly a need to warn everyone with a 305 that you 8 year old fuel pump went.

ALL the newer (89 and up) Chevrolet fuel pumps go bad. If you got 8 years you are way ahead of the game. Keep those filters changed regularly. Inline filter under the drivers side door, change it and you will add years of life to your fuel pump.

+1 8 years is actually pretty good, depending on how much the the vehicle was used.

If you try and start one of the Chevys with a bad pump and it doesn't start, bang on the fuel tank while someone else is cranking the engine. Most of the time it will start and you can save yourself a tow. But....take it as a warning to change the pump. These pumps stick and cause a high amperage draw. Most of the time you will see one of the wires melted at the pump.

I've changed many in tank fuel pumps. Those bastards seem to know when you just filled the tank too.
