I need a vacuum line diagram for a 1987 gmc jimmy 2.8 L V6 s 15 4x4


If it's not under the hood, then go to the autozone website for one. If they don't have it, buy a Haynes manual. Best one's around.

Changed the key ignition in my 2000 gmc jimmy and now the battery light and odometer milage light stays on and drains the battery This all happenens when the truck is turned off. When the truck is running...


The ignition switch(this is the electrical portion) is out of time. It needs to be removed, reindexed(notched teeth on top of switch-rotated a couple spots) and reinstalled. When it is installed correctly, the tell tale lights will not be on, you'll have accessory and the vehicle will start in the crank position. You don't want any lights on when the key is out of the ignition.

Stuck in 4 wheeldrive


Have you gotten a service light? Sometimes these electronic things just freak out. It might be as simple as a new switch. There is a motor on the transfer case that is responsable for moving the levers in the case that use to be done by a lever from inside the truck. I think it may be possible to remove this motor and replace it with a lever. I would check into this by calling a local 4x4 shop, or a mechanic that specializes in 4x4 vehicles.

92 gmc jimmy 4x4 problem!!!


If this vehicle has a smog air pump, it could be the gulp valve. It is likely to make noise on deceleration because it is vacuum controlled. But, can make noise other times also.

97 JIMMY,PUSH 4X4 BUTTON,NOTHING HAPPENS


Hi,
When you switch it from 2H to 4H you can push the switch at any speed but if you switch to 4L the car must be stop and the shifter is in neutral position.
Anyway here is my suggestion.... I would check the switch it self 1st for proper contact, also check the owners manual if there is a fuse for 4X4.
The worse scenario is the 4X4 computer is dead and if you have problem with transfer case you would notice a whining noise.
