Jimmy S15 1988 2.8 L fuel problem

I bought this Jimmy from someone that was having a smog problem since my mechanic knew the problem was related to the injectors. Ok I replaced the injectors and then weird electrical problems occurred. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel hanger, battery, alternator. It had a parasitic drainn which took the dealer to isolate around the Oil Safety Shutoff. Due to the price this was left alone. Everything seemed fine until yesterday when the car was not starting easily and died twice on the way to the mechanic where it completely died. Fuel not getting into the injectors. Mechanic is lost.

Change fuel filter and try blowing fuel lines back with an air line,in case gauze filter in tank blocked.check the stop solonoid in the injector pump first though ,rubber valve seal could have dropped off.

WHAT CAUSES CAR TO SHUT DOWN WHILE DRIVING?


Fuel not flowing to the engine. I had a Cutlass (for a week) that would shut down for no apparent reason. After being towed 4x, I told the garage to drop the gas tank and flush it out, since I thought it might be bad gas that the previous owner could have purchased. When I returned, they showed me a handful of small tinfoil balls that were floating in the tank. Whenever I accelerated, the tinfoil balls were sucked into the screen that protected the gas line from foreign objects being sucked into the engine. I knew it was fuel related but, I had to convince the mechanics. I'm sure you don't have tinfoil in your gas but, you may have a clogged fuel filter if you bought gas when the tanks at the gas station were almost empty. I'm betting your problem is fuel related, in some way. Find a mechanic you can trust. Good luck, John!

GMC Jimmy wont power smog device to run smog check - blown fuse?


What they are talking about is the scanner to read codes in the computer.
The scanner connects to a port under the steering column.
I think the power comes from the cig lighter circuit.
You may have to check your owners manual to find out which fuse is for the lighter.

Went for a smog check; failed with trouble codes P0300, P1441 and P1870? What do the codes indicate. I have a 1996 Camaro RS w/ v-6 3800, auto.


P1441 CHEVROLET - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge
P0300 - Cylinder Misfire Detected Random Cylinders
Possible causes- Faulty spark plug 1
- Faulty ignition coils
- Ignition coils harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coils poor electrical connection
- Clogged or faulty fuel injectors
- Injectors harness is open or shorted
- Injectors poor electrical connection
- Improper spark plugs
- Insufficient cylinders compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Intake air leak
if you noticed that the closes relation those two have to each other has to do with a leak possible vacuum leak. look for hoses or grommets that are very soft, loose, cut or disconnected. the other code P1870 pertains to a transmission component slipping you should not need that for a smog check to pass

I just bought a 93 jeep cherokee...it won't pass smog, smog test says its running to rich at idle. How can I get it to pass smog?


Could be lots of things.
It could have a leaky injector that is dripping all the time.
You can pull the injectors while still on the fuel lines, to see.
You could have bad compression and burning oil.
You need to do a compression test to tell.
You could have a bad plug or wire.
They are cheap to so just change them.
The fuel injection system could be off.
Check the temp sensor, air mass sensor, O2 sensor, with an ohmmeter.
Don't remember the values, but bad ones usually go 0 or infinite.

BASE ENGINE MECHANICAL FAULT COMPRESSION VALVE TIMING. HO2S CIRCUITS WET OR OILY CORRODED OR POOR TERMINAL CONTACT. HO2S SIGNAL CIRCUIT OPEN SHORTED TO GROUND SHORTED TO POWER OR THE SENSOR HAS FAILED. LOW FUEL PRESSURE OR VECHICLE DRIVEN UNTIL IT WAS OF FUEL.POSSIBLE AIR LEAKS AT THE PCV VALVE OR AT THE RELATED HOSES.

What is causing my 1994 gmc jimmy to hessitate on


yep, but more than likely you need to replace your spark plugs and/or injectors.
go to the autowreckers and you can get a new fuel rail with used injectors or you can buy refurbished ones at napa or autozone that are cheaper than buying all new ones.

Miss in engine. DB2 codes indicated miss in


you may have a stuck injector (if your engine has an injector for each cylinder) ... if you place a stethoscope (or just a stick) on each injector you can hear them click as the engine runs .. if the one on cylinder 2 is stuck then it will stop clicking .. you can use some injector cleaner in your gas but the injector has to start working a little before it can do much good .. so if it works sometimes and not others then that might be worth a try .. if you cant get it working (wont click) then often you can pulse it into operation by very briefly touching 12volt across its coil .. if you keep the 12 volts on for too long it will damage the injector coil .. if you have only one injector then thats not your trouble ..
the cleaner usualy does the trick if you can get it to operate even for a short time .. you can also replace the injector if you determine that its bad ..
