Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy
Hello, my 98 GMC Jimmy, has a new battery and alternator, the volt meter on the dash generally stays centered when the truck is running. I have disconnected all extra accessories like fog lights stereo equipment... It will Crank but click as well, I can usually get it running but will have to tap the gas when it first starts to keep it from stalling out. its definitely electrical because I have a new fuel pump as well, and it hold good pressure. Spark is good at the coil, and it has new cap and rotor. before the battery not holding a charge it would randomly crank and crank and crank, but not turn over.. at that point when I gave it some time it would turn right over like it never skipped a beat. NOW, after never finding out what was causing that the battery wont take or hold a charge.
Check your fusible link,tied into positive battery cable, follow all wires from there,could be burnt or melted.

SOURCE: no spark at coil
Check the ignition switch located on the steering column under the dash. If you do not hear an electric contact click when you turn the key on, this could be the problem

Smell of the oil,to see if the fuel injector(spider)is leaking into the crank case,if so,the intake will have to be removed to repair the problem,oh,and change the oil.
