Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
I have a 1998 Chevy S-10 with approximately 160,000 miles. When the temperature is below 20 degrees the truck will not start but does not register an error code.
The truck will start momentarily, less than two seconds, on the initial try and die, after tow or three additional attempts it will repeat the 2 second drill.
With no changes to the truck I can wait until the temperature rise and the truck will run fine.
Any suggestions would be great, I have been chasing this problem during cold weather for 3 years.
The cold weather wreaks havoc on everything. I am thinking that the cold weather and your octane rating are not getting along, hence no error codes. Have you tried fuel drier and or octane booster?Since the truck starts when the temperature gets warmer, I would look at octane as the culprit. Try some octane booster and see if that helps. Let me know. Hope this helps.
