Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
2000 GMC Jimmy 4.3 - 180,000 miles
Car was running fine, driving on interstate and made strange noise. Pulled to side of road raised hood no visable oil or liquids. Continued on 1/4 mile before vehile stopped. Would not start. Had towed. Throttle valve was dry, when sprayed with starting fluid vehicle would try to start.
Today changed fuel filter, nothing. Took pressue line off fuel pump, 60# of pressure.
Will not fire with starting fluid or gas.
Setting in garage - Help!
I had the same problem on my way to Washington state from Iowa. I never checked to see if my throttle valve was dry, but I had it taken to a shop and it was the mass air flow sensor which is a metal cylinder connected to a tube between the air box and the engine. One thing you can try is disconnect the wires that go to it and see if it starts. This is just an idea that may help you.
