Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

1997 GMC Jimmy will not start! Prior problems!

For the past year I have owned my Jimmy quite often I would be driving and it would rev up, but start to slow down as if it were not getting gas! Sometimes so bad it would not go and I would have to pull over shut it off, wait a few minutes then start it again! Now, it will not start at all, it turns over, but seems not to be firing? I have heard the problem is the fuel pump, fuel ingector, O2 sensor? Don't have money to try them all! Please help me narrow it down???

Fuel pump. Listen for sound of pump when you first turn key. Have someone listen at tank when you first turn key. Costly part but most successful fix for most fuel problems.

1997 GMC Jimmy 4.3. It runs great. I will drive it for 30-45 min and then it will die on me. All dash lights will come on just like if you turn the key on and not start the engine. It will restart and then...


When the engine dies do the accessories such as radio, lights, heater all die along with the engine; or do they keep running as they were prior to the stall?
If they all quit together (as if the key was shut off) I would check the electrical part of the ignition switch or the battery cables and connections (check both ends of cables and little ground wire near battery that connects to car body). The ignition switches are a well known culprit in the s10's.

If the radio and lights keep running after the stall, I would look at the crank position sensor, ignition coils etc.

Good Luck!

Transmission problem


Sounds like an issue when fluid gets hot, I'd start with a filter/fluid change.

I personally shy away from tranny additives, use only as a last resort to get a vehicle drivable to trade in (on a cash for clunkers program. (((SMILE))). )
