93 GMC Yukon wont stay running

I am a single mom and dont know where to turn to. My 93 GMC Yukon will not stay running in drive and sometimes even in park or neutral. I have to keep my foot on the gas and brake to keep it from stalling out. Please help.

    Thanks, but I tried all that already and it still does it. It only does it at idle and when your foot is barely on the gas pedal. It does burn through gas, but I think it is because of having to keep the foot on the gas. it runs down the highway perfect. Any ohter suggestions?

Put some lucas fuel system cleaner in the fuel tank check the plugs and wires and check the air filter and see if there is a bad smell like rotten eggs when you first start it. does it use a lot of gas

    there might be a lot of carbon build up in the air intake check into that and if thats not it see if there is a way you can turn up the idle

GMC Yukon 1999, parking lights stay on when truck turned off, why?


If you pull the 20amp park lamp fuse and the lights stay on, it almost has to be a short inside the headlight switch.
Will the lights go off if you unplug the headlight switch ?

The relay in your blower motor is stuck on, there is a TSB for this issue. Replace the blower motor resistor and you'll be back in business.
How does the resistor get power if the fuse is pulled?
Replacing the resistor will cure both problems. TSB is a technical service bullitin seen below

I have a 2003 gmc yukon 5.3 the engine idles rough sometimes the idle will get so low the engine will shut off.(the engine runs good while driving) hooked to scaner po101 maf/vaf (dont know what vaf is),...


you have a vacume leak somewhere.check all of your vacume hoses for leaks.Injector seals can cause this too.Also intake gaskets could be leaking.Running to lean usually means the car is getting to much air coming in.To check leaks spray brake cleaner around the hoses and the bottom of your intake if the rpms change then you found a leak.

SEAT HEATERS WONT STAY ON


The seat heaters are designed to heat up and once they hit a preset temp, they turn off. That said, if your won't stay on for even two minutes then you will have to replace the seat heater relay. The part is available at GMC dealerships and some auto parts stores.
