SOURCE: TPS in a 1998 GMC Jimmy

the tps is ususally at the side of the throttle body opposite where the throttle cable / tv cable mount.
sometimes it won't start, run, or run erratically. there are ways of testing this unit (by output voltage) before you commit to buying a new one. to test it you will need a dvom (digital volt ohm meter).

just a note: straight from the book... "a broken or loose tps can cause intermitten burst of fuel from the injector and an unstable idle because the ecm thinks the throttle is moving."

SOURCE: where is my 1 2 shift sensor 2000 gmc jimmy

Your transmission is electronic, it read's the the speed sensor from the yoke and relay's the information to the ECM which tell's the servos in the transmission acivate to change the gears up or down with the engine out put.

SOURCE: my 1998 gmc jimmy transmission is not shifting

I would try changing the fluid and filter again. Sounds to me like there is a lot of crud built up in it and another change would probably do the trick. It probably wouldn't hurt to add a bottle of Lucas Trans Fluid at the same time. It will help extend the life of your transmission. Black fluid would likely be clutch material that wears off over time.
If this doesn't work you are likely in the market for another trans. Hope this helps.

I need to know the location of a neutral starter safety switch on a 2001 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortex


Column shift cars it will be at base on steering column I think. Floor shift cars it may be inside console at shifter. At some point this switch started being mounted on the driver's side of the transmission but not sure what year.

Intermitente starting problems & transmission seemed to go out the other day while driving it


sounds more like an engine issue off the top of my head. The transmission runs off the vacuum from the engine. If the engine timing chain is stretched it will run then not run, have problems idling and shifting and won't charge the battery properly. anyone who has done one before could probably tell you just by the sound of the engine running.

1998 jimmy 4wd wont shift into 3rd gear 1st two gears are fine up and down shifting.


Fault in the gear box . This can be due to failure of the linkages, the shifters , the counter wheels or gears.
A fault in the gear box can be speculative and so unless the gear box is opened this cannot be confirmed.
You will need to decide if the job can be done with the tools and facility you have within your limits.

Jimmy idles fine but shuts off when put into gear


Iwould look at a switch mounted on the side of the transmissiom called the interlock switch. Its on the drivers side and tells the VCM what mode the shifter is in and moves everytime the transmission is shifted so it is a ware part. Seeing that it runs in park and when shifted to a drive mode it dosn't It would be the first thing on my list to check can't say for sure with out looking at it but its vary likely

My 1998 jimmy wont go in to four high low works fine


i am assuming that you have the shift on the go in your truck. with the motor running, put the truck in neutral, and try shifting between the ranges. If you have a manual shift, make sure the bolts that hold the shift arm from the shifter and on the transfer case have not loosened up. You can pull the boot off the top of the shifter and see if the slot is lined up, if not check your bolts under the truck
