Could be your fuel pump. These vehicles are known for fuel pumps couing out. Sometimes you can hit the bottom of the fuel tank and get the pump to work for a limited time. Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail to see if your pump is working. If no pressure at the fuel rail then you will probably be looking at a new fuel pump. If you have pressure and the pump is working then it could be a list of other things. Try also listening for the sound of the pump priming when you first turn the key on. Should be able to hear it for the first few seconds. Hope this helps. Good luck and let me know.

2000 GMC Jimmy starts then dies right away, other times runs fine


It could either be your fuel pump or the spark coil sensor..the coil spark sensor is located in the left side of your engine towards back ..this is the part that has a spark plug wire that comes from your distributor cap and to your coil. next to the coil there is a aluminum spark sensor that is mounted with two small screws and is has a measurement oF 2 x 2 inches . well this is sensor that sends information to your vehicles memory and safe functions panel..and if this is not functioning then the computer is inputting negative information on the spark to your engine and it will start to cause unstable starting complications, this spark sensor will send negative spark intervals to the vehicles system , then your system functions will start to stop working, it will shut off ,then its okay to start ect. its function purpose is to tell engine !! you better not start because you're not getting constant spark to burn the fuel and you're not going anywhere!!! if this is not working properly then these are some of the symptoms you might just be getting ..i hope this is a start on your research solution to your suv ..it was a solution that helped me resolve my problem on my 2000 jimmy SLE that i you just posted..part of my research also indicated that others causing this would be, spark plugs were not good and to check them , make sure to check spark plug wires , gas pump going faulty , gas filter,fuel injectors were dirty,and last one the air filter..good luck !! my total time and effort expense was about 1 hour in research and about 80.00 in parts cost and 30 min. in personal labor time..its a simple repair if your a hands on person , there is no under the hood work and there is no disassembling nothing but unscrewing 2 screws with star drivers # 15 or 20 / or straight philips screw driver..its a piece of cake!! NOTE:This is only a tip not a solution based from my experience ,this was my personal solution to my 2000 jimmy SLE when having similar issues..make sure you make the proper research and have at least had 3 to 4 opinions from professional or knowledgeable people before conducting any work . its better to be safe than having to find yourself in a dangerous situation..good luck and god bless.

When i drive down the road it will die i wait 20 30 minutes and it will start back but does it all the time been going on for several months


get vehicle scanned to find problem code. but it sounds like a bad crank sensor. here are the symtoms,---certain timing problems will arise, but if bad will set check engine light on dash. and it will not start back up for 10-20 minutes. if engine starts at all!! have car scanned.

Car stopped on interestate, dieseled and quit.


I had the same problem on my way to Washington state from Iowa. I never checked to see if my throttle valve was dry, but I had it taken to a shop and it was the mass air flow sensor which is a metal cylinder connected to a tube between the air box and the engine. One thing you can try is disconnect the wires that go to it and see if it starts. This is just an idea that may help you.
