My 2002 Yukon Denali starts but then the engine idles up and down(as if it were jumping) till finally it idles really low and if i try to give it gas ,nothing happens and then the truck stalls. I turn the key again, it starts and the same thing occurs.

I have a 2002 gmc yukon denali xl with 6.0L engine and i have a brand new alternator and battery, but when i brake medium-hard, the voltage drops to around 5 on the meter and the lights flicker. sometimes...

my 2002 had same problems and to fix, I loosened the hose clamp on the throttle body air intake to air box hose. Then opened the butteryfly by hand and used throttle body cleaner, used carb cleaner on another, and removed all the black grime that collects around the throttle body butterfly. About every forty thousand miles i have to do this. I have 123k on mine now and have done it three times. Fixes the low idle, dying in reverse, lite flicker and alternator dropout.

Home it works, if it does

2002 gmc yukon, rich fuel code, low fuel pressure @40

you may have two oxugen sensors on your yukon. if so the oxygen sensor that controls that bank may be bad. from what you mentioned in your complaint, it sounds like it is the oxygen sensor.

Rough Idle for the first couple of minutes then smooth...

1.-remove trottle body and clean it really good 2.-clean your EGR valve with some carb cleaner 3.-remove air intake pipe and clean MAF sensor with MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR CLEANER,make sure your air filter still in good condition. i did this on my 02 xl denali now the problem its gone!trust me!hope this helps on yours too
