I have a five cyl 2004 Chevy Colorado that will not stay running on a cold morning. (anything below freezing) The truck will start and then shut off within 10 seconds. The engine light comes on and after I wait 45 seconds the engine will start but shut off again after 10 or 15 seconds. If the temperature gets down near zero I may need to go through this process 20 times before the truck will stay running. When the truck does stay running the engine light will stay on for an hour or so and

I drove my 1999 Silverado (4.3L V6) to Bristol and back to Knoxville. When I pulled into my road, I shut off the truck to let the family in the house. When I tried to restart the engine, it would only run for a few seconds, then die. If I started it again immediately, it would not start. If it set for a bit, it would crank and run for a few seconds and then die. After setting all night it started and I backed the truck into the driveway. Now it will not start at all. Any ideas?

Sometimes when I try to start the truck, it won't turn over the first time, then the second time it will start fine, can't idle for too long; engine will shut off on it's own. When driving about 10 to 15 miles, it will shutter like it want's to shut off and I step on the gas to get it going. Driving and the gas petal will push back at me and the car feels like it want's to shut off again, but I gently put gas to it and it goes.

I own a 1997 GMC Yukon 5.7 liter 4 wheel drive. This problem only happens in the summer when outside temp is above 60. Truck shifts very hard at 10 mph once it has been driven for at least a half hour. If I shut the truck off, even if for only 20 seconds, the truck will shift beautifully again for a while. The service engine light comes on every so often, but if the outside temp drops, say at night, it will eventually go out. I've had the transmission serviced, changed thermostat and had cool

After work yesterday when I started my truck a ?Check Gauges? message displayed on my odometer readout. It was there for probably 2 seconds and went off. I then turned the truck off and started it again, and it did not appear. This morning when I left for work the message readout appeared again. I shut the truck off and started it again and it did not appear. There are no other lights (check engine, service engine, etc?) on. I read the manual and it say it could be one (1) of three (3) th

Transmission stops working when truck warms up When truck is driving for roughly 20 minutes to an hour and is warmed up, it downshifts itself into second gear and must be shut off for a period of time before it is able to resume driving at regular speed.

I have a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel with an Allison 1000 series transmission.

I have found out that if i put the truck into neutral as soon as it shifts like this i can catch it before

I've noticed this issue with my truck about a month ago. It started out that when I stop at a red light it's like something isn't sensing that i've stopped and like it takes it a second before it idles, I guess you could say. The last few weeks it has started intermittently shutting off at lights here and there or if i'm stopped in a turning lane. My check engine light came on after it shut off for the 3rd time. I had autozone run a scan, was giving 3 codes, all having to do with the transmissio

I shut the truck off (did not pull the key out) and started fine without doing this. I then pulled out the key when I shut it off and then started it back up and it did this again.
