    2002 Escalade hard start

    Hello All! I have a 2002 Escalade with 91k. When I try to start, it will crank for several seconds. If I let go of the key and try again, it starts right up. I have replaced the
    fuel filter, no improvement. Please tell me it is not the fuel pump. I understand it is in
    the tank. That cannot be a fun project.

    I hate to say but it does sound like the fuel pump I suggest getting it replaced soon as it may leave you stranded somewhere and a row truck ain't fun I know I have been in one two times lately due to my PCM failing with no warning if you don't feel up to doing it yourself get a shop you trust to do it.

    the only other thing is fuel pressure regulator (have not looked on 6.0 were it is) but if that goes out like will also lose pressure. that is what it sounds like it is doing. before you start it after it has been sitting ck if it is holding pressure

    ok, I just replaced the fuel pressure reg, very easy job. It seems to start better and have more power. I will recheck when the truck is cold to be sure. Thanks for the advice!
