Mine does the same. I have over half a tank of fuel and no indicator lights on. I have no clue what this means.

I wonder that myself, i get the same thing. Is your brake light on? Or any of the other indicators, because i would bet thats what it is if any are on, either that or your low on fuel.

Does a 1997 Gmc jimmy have back bums or pads


You mean drums? Depends on the vehicle options but should be rotors/pads. Easy to check - look through the wheel spokes and if pads, you should see the rotor.

The dinging from the dash is the Air bag system check. Check that the bulb in the dash isn't burned out. The stalling and spitting could be clogged converter. Check how much exhaust is coming out of the tail pipe when you rev it. The smoke could just be from a leaking valve cover gasket.

YES..... IT'S NOT EASY TO FIX. IF I REMEMBER RIGHT THE TANK NEEDS TO COME OUT, SOME OF THESE PARTS CAN BE $$$ I FOUND THE BEST WAY TO AVOID FUEL PUMP AND SENDING UNIT ISSUES IS TO TRY TO KEEP THE TANK AT LEAST 1/3 FULL OR MORE, THE PUMP IS GAS COOLED (YEP) AND THE MORE GAS THATS IN THE TANK, THE HAPPIER YOUR PUMP IS. THE GAS SWASHES AROUND IN THE TANK AND IF YOU DRIVE SLOWER, IT'S LESS APT TO DO THE DING DING DING. NOISE... THATS NOT A RACE CAR AND IF YOU DRIVE IT NICE YOU CAN SQUEAK SOME MILES OUT OF HER.. I GOT OVER 500,000 MILES ON A 84 CARAVAN, I SOLD IT TO MY FRIEND AND HE HIT A CITY BUS WITH IT. HE'S OK BUT THE VAN WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD AT THE SEEN.. ONE OF THE TRICKS TO A LONG LIFE IS TO SHUT THE MOTOR OFF IN GEAR, THEN PUT IT IN PARK. THIS HELPS STOP THE CHANCE OF DIESELING, AKA (DEATH TO TIMING BELT OR CHAIN) STEVE IF I WAS OF HELP LEAVE A REVIEW OR GIVE ME A THUMB OR TWO ..THANKS J THE PUMP WHISPERER IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA
