Check your fuel filter....located under driver's side seat, inside frame rail. Be careful when removing; that location gets lots of roadcrud and the fittings will easily rust. If you crack the fuel line.... Second place to look is fuel pump; top of the gas tank - gotta pull the bed for access. Ick. The fuel pressure at the engine should be > 50psi, although you can get by above 40-ish psi, but the idle will be noticably rougher the farther below 50psi you get. Luck!

A Chevrolet Silverado that has cruise control problems might be having a problem with the part of the engine that controls speed and fuel intake.

There are many pros, - Chevy silverado trucks keep more value over the years. - have beat F-150s in many reports/reviews. - chevys are very easy to fix if they need work. - Chevrolet trucks are known for power, and not known for problems. the only bad thing i have ever heard of from a Chevy is that the brake pad life isn't very long for the older models, but i don't think that is a problem anymore. - answered by, yes, a 14year old girl(:

You may want to check to see if this was covered by the Chevy recall for the tailgate problems on the 2000 Silverado.

When I inherited my dad's truck, I looked at the recall/service CHEVY page and took the truck in to have that work done for free. Worth the phone call...
