Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Engine will not start now

I just bought the suv two weeks ago inspected. The service so light stays on and the fuel gauge stays on full and some time flutters. Now the engine wont start and the low fuel light comes on, I just gas the suv up. Is there a trick to get it started to get it home. My wife's car cannot afford repairs now.

Thank You

Gas gauge indicator goes to empty when full


sounds like you may have a bad fuel level sender problem. as for the check engine light coming on and storing a fault code that is a separate issue.

I began to have issues with my '05 Hummer H2 a few weeks ago.....


P0496 = "Evaporative emission system high purge flow"


At the dealership, we get a lot of complaints like yours and they all started with running too low on fuel or running out.


Start with replacing the fuel filter and get back to me.


Running low/out tends to suck up micro trash from the bottom of the gas tank and that gunk clogs the fuel filter.

If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

I have a 2004 pontiac montana. for about two years the fuel guage would fold over and read 125 degrees when the tank is full. it woulld stay there until tank was empty and the needle would drop to empty,...


It could be a bad fuel gauge in the dash unit, but....
Usually it's "The bad".
The fuel level sending wipe arm and windings on the fuel sender wear and send erratic readings.The only cure is a replacement fuel gauge sender.
The check engine light should not be related to the erratic fuel readings.
"The good".
If you have over 200,000kms or 120,000 miles on your van you need a new fuel pump anyway,so have a complete assembly put in which will have a new fuel sender on it.

Car won't stay cranked after started


If the Service Engine Soon Light is on continuously there is a serious problem with one of the systems of your engine. Have it checked as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it could leave you stranded which will be very inconvenient.

Fuel Gauge Stuck on Full 98 Pontiac Montana


When gauge is pegged at full, usually means a bad ground. Check wires at fuel tank, wiggle around, maybe one came off. The bad news is it is hard to get to without removing the tank. Sometimes you can reach arm in and get to them. Also check body ground at read of van.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
