    I have the same trouble with my 2000 Sonoma 2.2l it seems to happen only when it's cold and damp outside. The colder the weather the more likely the truck won't stop. If I keep trying the engine will eventually crank over and start and once started it will run perfectly. I've had the starter replaced about a year ago and this past fall the problem started to show up and has only gotten worse.

Maybe that could be check for that fuse if it is busted.if your starter will crank and still the engine will not start then check if there is current coming from your high tension wire of your distributor assembly.if there is no current check for the connection or fuses.

I stalled a fuel pump on 2002 GMC Sonoma 4 cyl. She stared right upI installed a fuel pump on my 2002 GMC Sonome engine 4 cyl. It started righd not startet up. But, after driven 2 miles, stalled


It is very important to look at the four pin connector that plugs onto fuel tank sending unit the hot wire that runs the pump gets loose and burn the connector making intermittent connection they make a replacement plug for this problem also check the connections on the inside i have those fail once.

2000 gmc sonoma wont start all the time has new starter and key switch


If the engine will not crank, you'll need to know if you have power at the starter posts. It could be the neutral switch or the starter relay.

2001 GMC Sonoma. SLS 6 Cyl 4 WD 4.3 Vortec. I turn the key on and nothing happens. My dash lights up, all lights come on, fuel pump runs, starter relay clicks, Still nothing. I replaced the starter,...


Tilt the steering wheel down all the way and see if it starts, if it does then there is a main power wire loose in the steering columb. Thats all which comes to my mind at this time.

The probable causes are: 1. The drive belts are slipping. 2. The drive pulleys for some engine accessories are misaligned. 3. You have turned the steering wheel to the limits. 4. The drive belts are loose.5. Your brake drum backing plates are rubbing against the brake drum. The brakes also might be a problem. check the brake drums/discs. Finally check your wheel and wheel alignment.

I have a 2000 gmc sonoma and while driving down


Probably the CV joint. When you put it in 4x4 that puts extra torque on it so it wont vibrate so much.

1999 GMC sonoma starte installation


2.2L Engine remove protective shields as needed then remove front exhaust pipe. Remove the brace from the engine to the clutch housing, then disconnect starter wiring. 4.3L Engine 2 wheel drive just remove the right front tire and you will have access to the wiring. 4.3L Engine 4 wheel drive you must remove the differential carrier shield if equipped then remove the starter bolts and rotate the starter to get access to the wiring. Good Luck.

Car droning noise


While you are driving, get up to roughly 40 MPH on a road with little or no traffic. Once at this speed, whip the steering wheel left and right as if you were making rapid lane changes. If you notice a change in the pitch or intensity of the sound, it is quite likely that you have a pending wheel bearing failure. The reason that the change will be noticed is because there is a rapid change in load placed on the bearings during lateral moves. Outside of the, the tires alone, can be quite noisy. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300TD wagon. I never realized how much road noise was coming from my tires until I replaced them with new ones!
