My sister has a 2000 Tahoe with the 5.3 She was driving on the freeway and it started to bog down like it was out of gas. Then it died. Her boyfriend and the tow truck guy tried to start it (i.e. cranking away)to no avail. She took it to Pepboys because it was sunday. They replaced the fuel pump and wanted to replace the fuel pump relay. She decided not to replace the relay yet. I'm posting this because she needs a reliable mechanic in the San Diego area. She lives in Chula Vista but she just wants a reliable and trustworthy mechanic because she has been ripped off by everyone. . Right now the truck takes a few a while of cranking before it starts up. She's wondering if they did a number on the starter when they kept trying to start it after the fuel pump died. Any ideas?
