Default P2110 Error

Hi everyone,

I have a problem and thought maybe someone else has experienced this. I bought my 2003 1500 5.7L truck about 6 years ago - had 17K miles on it. Been a real good truck less minor things. It has 130K miles on it now. Been running great - the other day I started it up, went to the store - came back out and it would not start. Turned over like crazy but would not start - acted like either no fuel or no spark. I let it set for about 30 mins and it started up and ran great again (with the check engine light on). Autozone said it was not generating a code (they used their small diagnostic device) but when I brought it to my mechanic he said it was a P2110 code (Electronic throttle control). He cleared the code and said it may or may not do it again. It ran fine for a week then a few days ago it suddenly died while I was doing 75 on the interstate - very dangerous. I brought it back to him and he replaced the throttle body assembly. Brought it home and took it out a few hours ago and pulled into a gas station and it would not start again. Waited about 30 mins and it started right up. So now, I've replaced the throttle body assembly which does not appear to have solved the problem. Any ideas? thanks.

I will do that. I would think that a fuel pump problem would cause some sputtering though. Also, the 3 times that the engine would not start all required about a 30 minute wait until it would start - kinda like something was overheated. All gauges showed fine however.

Fuel pumps don't last forever . I start seeing alot of failures in the 120,000 mile range . You need to verify if it's fuel or ignition related before persuing it further .

Fuel pumps also fail intermittently, not necessarily gradually, things like a weak ground can cause the pump to not work at all but be at nearly full capacity otherwise, sputtering would be more like the pump is weak which would show up much of the time.

Check ground cables. Like the man said, got to break it down to fuel or electrical/ignition first. A crappy ground wire can cause problems.

Also from a diagnostic standpoint don't automatically assume the engine cutting out and later refusing to start are the same problem. Yes, a fuel pump might be both, but I've seen people chase their tails round and round because two things happen for different reasons in the same short time period, and they automatically assume same root cause.

No MIL lit up on the dash?

Default P2110 Error

the initial code was P2110 - mechanic replaced the Electronic Throttle Control assy - ran good for a day then did the same thing - ran fine, pulled into a gas station, filled up then wouldn't start. when it did finally start it did not display any code nor was the check engine light on. :/

Default P2110 error - the next chapter

during test drives the fuel pump finally failed completely at the shop I had the truck at. They replaced the fuel pump - truck ran fine for a day. The next day the check engine light came on and I brought it back and they said it was a (VAP?) error. I think that was what he said - he cleared the code and didn't remember what it was but said it was related to emision control (some cable from the engine to the tank that carries fumes) - and not to worry about it. The next day I can hear a solid high pitch tone coming from the rear of the truck and today the check engine light comes back on. Through all of this the truck is running fine but I don't like the check engine light being on and hearing that tone. Any idea's?
thanks.

We had a similar problem with the truck throwing a code. In the back by the tank there is a reservoir that holds excess fuel. If it does not properly use the fuel during operation or dump it back in the tank you will have issues. I'll look for the receipt if you want and list any details on parts.
