Asked by robert Dec 23, 2019 at 05:33 PM about the Chevrolet Tahoe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the pressure dropped it did not rattle clatter or drop spark and it runs smooth
and fine. Have a new sensor put in and it did good but it is doing the same
thing .Took it back to have a mechanical gauge  put on and it starts out good
and after it run pressure drops off put it still run good. could it picking up junk
and putting to screen and tun off falls back down and then brings it back up
again The moter has only 143000 run good no issues.Thank BOB
