I have a 2000 Silverado 5.3 liter, I was driving down the road today 55 miles an
hour, the truck just died. I pulled over and tried to crank it. It would barely
idle and I pulled off the fuel filter and it had no resistance. It cranked up
and it would idle fine, but it would not accelerate. I put it in gear and drove
bout ten miles an hour until I got it back to the shop. But it would still not
accelerate at all. the highest it would rev to was 1200 rpm.
Great story. Get back to us when you find out what the problem was.
Did you have a question?
Some engines will go into a "safe mode" that allows them to be driven
like that, but not at full performance. Happened to me when the
Throttle Position Sensor failed.
