My truck just stopped running, it started right back up, but what happened"?? now at times it turns over alot before it starts and it rough idles! what is the problem??" I have heard that it is probably a fuel regulator--very expensive repair on alot of Silverado-- I think GM should replace these for free because there is alot of these with this same problem.
