Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

4 Answers

Kicking the motor over but will not start. No spark.

I drove home from work.I felt it miss. Parked in the garage. Fifteen minutes later. Got back in. Tried to start. It and it just kick over. I thought It mite be the fuel pump. But the gas gage went all the way to the right witch is all the way full. And the amp gage went all the way down to the left in the negative. But still have plenty of juice in the battery. I don,t think it is getting spark.

    My car won't start gages are haywire. It's kicking over. Fuel pump is working. But I think there is no spark coming through. And it's not the spark plugs.

There may be a short somewhere. Check all the wires to see if there is anything exposed, dammaged, blackened, etc. It's obviously an electrical problem and sounds like a short.

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Golf 1.9 tdi wont start :-(


Sounds like you have a bad glow plug relay that could cause a power spike and drain your battery,it could also take away power to the fuel pump causing the loss of power.Hope this helps you out some!!
