Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

2000 GMC Jimmy slow acceleration until 3000 rpms

It seems that when I first start and begin to drive the vehicle, the acceleration is very slow until the engine hits 3000 rpms. Then the vehicle will shift into second gear and begin to pickup speed as normal. This just started happening, and doesn't do it all the time but is happening more often. I don't think it's a transmission problem because I don't have any other shifting problems.

I've done all the usual preventitve maintenance. The vehicle is 4x4 V6 4.3L, has 76,000 miles and I've never experienced any major problems. Any help would be appreciated!

    I've since discovered the problem I originally posted about was caused by the Mass Air Flow Sensor. A local mechanic cleaned it for me and no problems since then!!!

I have the same problem when i start it up it takes a while but then seens to pickup as i continue driving, and doesnt happen until i shut it off and restart again. My mechanic told me that it was not the fuel pump because if that was the problem, it would just break meaning; it would not operate basically when it wants to. It would just work or not no in between. I was thinking maybe it could be the the Master Airflow Sensor but i have to look more into that. If anyone eventually finds a solution comment on this add. Thanks

My 1997 Jimmy runs fine in idle when I take off the vechile is fine until it reaches 20 mph it won't accelerate and the rpms increase up to 3000 but no speed. What's wrong it's a 4 wheel d


Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

My 2000 jimmy wont shift into 3rd or 4th and it reaches 3000 or more rpms. its an automatic transmission. someone said it could be speed sensors. where are they located.


Its more than likely a shift solenoid sticky causing this problem.Its located inside the transmission oil pan in the valvebody.

1998 GMC Jimmy...4x4 / transmission issues. It started a few weeks ago with poor acceleration above 2500-3000 rpm in any gear. The engine doesn't red line, but it the truck doesn't feel like it is...


Lets take this piece by piece.
The 4x4 switch is defective.
A driveline vibration regardless of engine speed is usually a shaft or cv joint. To verify a visual inspection is necessary.
The poor acceleration in any gear is the begining of torque converter problems( stator or pump).As long as ATF level is correct.
I recommend having a transmission repair shop look this over and preform a pressure test of the main line of the transmission.(it may not be necessary if the condition of ATF is burnt). Good luck

When i try to accelerate from a stop or from any speed my jimmy


Try replacing the Mass Air Flow Sensor, it is in line from the air filter box to the carb. Could have come unplugged or gone bad. They are not made to be cleaned or touched inside (that usually leads to damaging it). Good luck.

2000 GMC Jimmy 4.3 engine surging while running


HAVE YOU HAD YOU THROTTLE BODY AND OR YOUR CAM SHAFT SENSOR CHECKED OR YOUR AIR TEMP SENSOR ? IT MOST LIKELY SOUNDS LIKE YOUR AIR TEMP SENSOR IS'NT LETTING ENOUGH AIR IN OR OPENING YOUR MASS AIR FLAP ENOUGH WHEN ITS COLD OUT CAUSING THIS.
