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.

My 1998 Mercury Mystique came up a P1131 reason for not passing smog. According to what my cousins mechanic said I believe the smog technician tried to advance the timing to get it TO PASS the smog test....


CODE P1131 LACK OF HO2S 11 SWITCHING HO2S SIGNAL LOW INPUT. POSSIBLE CAUSES IS AIR INTAKE SYSTEM LEAKING VACUUM HOSES LEAKING OR DAMAGED. AIR LEAKS LOCATED AFTER THE MAF SENSOR MOUNTING LOCATION. 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.

Hello the car blows black smoke and runs rough when going slow. at higher speeds runs better. I just bought it and I don't believe it will pass the smog here in california


Your fuel pressure regulator is allowing to much fuel into the system.
You should have someone plug a OBD II reader in and pull any codes.
Please let me know.

Code 1416 bank 2 2000 gmc jimmy


P1416 - Secondary Air Injection (AIR) system Bank 2
1416 means that you are running lean while the smog pump is on.
It could also be likely the vacswitch on the smog pump is the causes.

I just bought a Honda civic,98 .my car isn't passing smog test ,the mechanic couldn't tell me what's wrong,I also tried in pepboys,honda mechanics,smog test shop.


This might be due to innefficient air - fuel combustion. One reason causing this is the piston displacement and poor compression ratio. Better yet have the engine tuned up and considering the age of the engine maybe this is the perfect time for it to be overhauled.
