My 1988 ¾ ton Silverado Chevy truck was running fine when I stopped at the post office. When I came out it would not start. This truck usually starts with just the turn of the key (don?t have to give it gas or anything). The engine turned over and tried to start a few times. I let it sit for a half hour or so waiting for a friend to give me a tow. I tried to start it when he arrived and the engine turned over fast (to an old guy like me ? it seems like it was flooded) but did not try to start. I

My 2001 Chevy Silverado has 97,000 miles and the only problem i experience is that it struggles to start occasionally. If i turn the key right away it will turn over and not start, then it will always start on the second try. However, if i turn the key so that just the battery comes on, and then try to start the engine, it cranks right up.

My 2000 5.3L vortex Chevy Tahoe has been acting up. Every other week or so when I turn it off it won't start. It turns over until my battery dies, and when I jump it it takes like an hour to start. Once it starts it runs fine until I turn it off again. I can hear the fuel pump run but it still won't start.

My 1987 Chevy Nova has a starting issue. About 50% of the time when I try and start it in the morning it won't turn over. If you keep trying eventually it will turn over. Once I get it started it will turn over on the first try the rest of the day. Sometimes it just takes me to hold the key in the start position for a minute or two. Other times it takes multiple attempts.

My '97 chevy s-10 won't start what started out as an intermittant problem has become the norm. when i turn the key, it will turn over, but not start. then you see that none of the normal lights on the dash are on that should be as the computer checks the system. the door open bell sounds. the power gets to the radio. after playing around with putting the key in and out, slowly turning, or whatever else i can think of, it will finally work. i always know before turning the key all the way if it g
