Question about 1997 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

1997 gmc sierra 3500 won't start

It has a new battery, started first or second crank usually. has 100k miles. 454 motor with automatic ****** 4x4. it wouldn't start a couple weeks ago so imoved the steering column shifter back and forth from park to neutral and it seemed to start after that. Then yesterday i tried the same thing and it doesn't start. it cranks fine, just not turn over. i am thinking something with the shift linkage, fuel filter or fuel pump.

When you turn the ignition to start, do you hear the starter turning and the solenoid engaging the flywheel ? test your starter by jumping it and see if the engine turns over. If this works, then you might consider in checking fuel pressure. Do you have any codes in your ECM ?

SOURCE: 1989 GMC Sierra 3500 loose tilt steering column

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

1999 gmc sierra 2500 6 liter ran out of gas now won't start


If you are at or near the 100,000 mile mark then your fuel pump may have failed. If you remove the fuel filler cap and listen carefully at the filler neck while someone turns the ignition key to "run" [don't actually crank the engine] you should be able to hear the fuel pump buzz for about a second and a half as the key is turned On. If you don't hear the pump buzz then odds are your pump is dead. Your pump may have actually failed making it appear as though you ran out of fuel. Not to uncommon. Hope this helps and good luck!

ECM I fuse keeps blowing in my 1996 1 ton gmc sierra 4x4 with a 454 v8 engine whats causing it


For the ECM 1 fuse to open you obviously have a short to ground , start with the injector disconnected and see if ECM 1 fuse still blows.If it does disconnect crank sensor, also inspect wires for the injectors or any rub through wires here is a diagram cansmo_178.gif

I have a 1999 gmc 3500 crew dually with a 454 engine in it. This week it started running rough and idling funnny. Could this be the fuel filter or something else?


The fuel filter may need to be replaced, but wont fix the problem you have. Its just a maintenance item that should be done every 15k miles anyhow. Check it over, check the large hose between the air filter and the engine make sure its secure. see if all hoses are ok, if you see/hear a vacuum leak. If all looks ok, time to have it checked by a shop.
