Question about 2002 GMC Sierra 1500

2 Answers

I have a 2002gmc sierra 2 wheel drive 5.3lit 8 cylinder

I am losin power.. the service engine soon light started blinking and I started losing the power. I put octane booster in, heet, because it started after I filled up with gas, I can only go about 50-60 mph. I changed fuel filter and it ran a little better but it is still not having the power it had before and it gets worse going up hill. I changed fuel pump about a month ago. sometimes it runs ok but sometimes light blinks again and I start losing power. I changed spark plugs too. I can 't figure it out. can you please help me?

The problem may be the engine coolant sensor. If the sensor fails the engine will stop when normal operating temperature is reached . When engine is cold it will start.

How to reset the service engine soon light


If there is an Auto Zone or any other large auto parts store, have them scan the truck for the DTC codes. The DTC codes will identify the Issues that needs to be addressed in your engine and transmission that has set off the service engine light on. Once the issues has been resolved, the light will reset it self after the third start up and after 40 start up will erase it self from the history as long as there is no additional issues. Good luck and hope this helps, Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

I have a 2002 mitsubishi eclipse and service engine soon light came on so i pulled over and popped the hood and noticed antifreeze on top of the radiator and the the radiator cap was still on.there was no...


It could be the tanks are letting loose. It has plastic tanks with an aluminum core, right? The tanks eventually lose their seal and you will start to lose coolant through small voids, which can eventually become big voids. You can remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop to have it bench flow-tested. But i don't know of any radiator leak causing a service light to come on. Those are factory pre-set to make you come in for sceduled maintenance.

Hope this helps,

Service engine soon light comes on and engine in vehicle begins to rattle and shake uncontrolably and service engine soon light blinks


The blinking light indicates a sevier miss fire. Get the codes scaned to determine which cylinders and we can go from there.
Auto Zone will scan codes free of charge.
Chances are you have an ignition coil or injector driver issue.
let me know.

Truck losing power and service engine soon light on


Like to other guy said, give it a tuneup. Also try SEAFOAM to clean carb up of slug. Also check to make sure the butter fly for the choke has not come loose, causing it the choke it down. Failed choke pull-off.
